1. You need to apply for Cashback, which may be available subject to conditions specified in the contract. Please read these conditions carefully. Available Cashback may exclude any recent cheque, direct debit or pay at post payments and external transfers cannot be performed using online Cashback. Fixed Rate home loans are excluded from Cashback.

2. A Mortgage Offset facility can be established by linking your Everyday Options Account to the loan account and having it in offset mode. A Mortgage Offset Fee may apply to link the 100% Home Loan Offset facility to your home loan, which is waivered under the Home Package Plus. The Mortgage Offset fee is charged to your linked loan account.

3. A minimum amount for each split is $10,000. Additional charges may be incurred for additional loans, unless held in a Home Package Plus.

For Fixed Rate Home Loans, an Early Payment Interest Adjustment (EPIA) applies if more than the prepayment allowance (currently $500.00 per month) is paid in excess of the agreed monthly repayment. The EPIA also applies if the loan is repaid in full or the agreed fixed rate period is broken for any reason. EPIA applies to the whole amount prepaid. Find out more information on EPIA or ask in branch for our EPIA brochure.
