Coastline launches into August with their youth account - KICKSTART!
Coastline is pleased to announce their new account for children aged 12-17 years inclusive.
The Kickstart account was designed with the young saver in mind, encouraging responsible financial decisions as this demographic reaches the age where saving, working and everyday expenses become part of their life.
Managing finances can be daunting and without products that can be found suitable for their financial needs, our younger community members may not be able to get the most out of their banking.
Allowing youths to make practical informed decisions will emanate throughout their lives as they grow up in a world where managing their finances is becoming more important due to the increase in the cost of living.
Head of People & Culture at Coastline Mrs Jenny Thorman states that allowing Kickstart customers to enjoy a fee free banking experience will make it easier for these community members to achieve their savings goals.
“Kickstart has no monthly account keeping fees, no minimum balance requirement and we strongly believe this will help both their short and long term financial goals,” Mrs Thorman stated.
Unlike the Coastline Cubs account, Kickstart customers can experience the ease of Internet Banking and our MyCOAST App, while also have the convenience of attaching a VISA Debit Card to access their funds, wherever, whenever.
“Kickstart customers are in a time of their lives where they are thinking about the future, whether that be saving for a car, motorbike, a musical instrument, tertiary education or their dream holiday. It's important they choose an account that suits their lifestyle and needs” said Mrs Thorman.
Our Kickstart account’s key features include the following:
- No monthly account keeping fees;
- 2.25% p.a. interest rate (as of 5 August 2019, subject to change without notice);
- Set & forget direct debits;
- Internet Banking & MyCOAST App;
- Easy access with a VISA Debit Card;
- 24/7 fraud protection; and
- Peer to peer payments with OSKO.
You can open a Kickstart account by visiting your local Coastline store or calling 1300 361 066.
