Edge Account receives 5-star rating from CANSTAR

Sydney, 12 October 2017: Gateway Credit Union has received another 5-star rating from independent comparison website, CANSTAR; this time for its Edge Account.

The everyday transaction account received the prestigious rating in both the ‘High transactor’ and ‘Low transactor’ deposit categories, thanks to its outstanding value and flexible features. With no account keeping fees, it offers a competitive interest rate on savings. Not to mention, its ability to serve as a savings and personal overdraft account all in one, giving Members access to extra funds when they need it.

Gateway Chief Customer Officer, Lexi Airey, commented: “The Edge Account is a staple of our product suite and one of our most popular products, and for good reason. Serving as a three-in-one account, it’s a hard-working product that gives Members the flexibility to use it as an everyday transaction account, a savings account and a personal overdraft. The endorsement from CANSTAR firmly places our Edge Account as a market leading product, and that’s something we can be proud of.”

The recognition comes only weeks after CANSTAR bestowed a 5-star rating on Gateway’s Premium Package Home Loan for both owner-occupier and investment as well as the Premium Package 5-Year Fixed Rate Home Loan for both owner-occupier and investment.

“As a credit union, we can offer nearly all the same services as a big bank but as a mutual we offer the benefit of operating solely for our Members. We always strive to deliver exceptional products backed by personalised service and a better banking ethos. We don’t take a vanilla approach, or put another way, we don’t taste like chicken. We’re a refreshing alternative to the run of the mill big banks,” concluded Airey.
