Here’s what our customers have to say.

Easy to use and High interest Miranda

I have been using Ubank for a quite a few years and the products have only improved. Have never had an issue with UBank and highly recommend to all my friends and family. No other bank seems to be able to match the rates.

Great product, great service Meerkat

In these times of minuscule interest rates from most institutions it is a revelation to find a product that offers an interest rate comfortably above inflation, a sign-up process that is easily executed from home, and an online account that is easy to navigate.

Terrific accounts ... would recommend to everyone sue1950

I have had a UBank account since they were first introduced. Now I have linked a new UBank Ultra to the first account. And am very impressed to be able to have ATM and Eftpos access as well, on top of receiving high interest rates. The person who thought up the idea of the Sweep system is brilliant.
