Yes, sorry Aussie pat's other half...I did rather go off at a tangent there.
Was thinking of the normal deposit accounts rather than term deposits...but even with the normal accounts it's possible to get the higher rate by just leaning on them a bit as I did.
As you say you need to keep on top of things and make sure you know what the current rate is and what competitors' rates are and make your decisions accordingly. I too am with Commonwealth but relatives are with Westpac and similar tactics have worked for them too. Depends how much you want that extra I suppose...
Ha - now the Finance News on 10 has just said that 'The US is now officially out of recession...despite double figure unemployment' . Although we will all probably find that hard to believe, apparently Wall St has reacted favourably. Wonder how long that will last!
