Benefits of adding extra accounts

Having multiple accounts with the same bank is a great way to track your finances and save money. You can set up separate accounts for different purposes, like one transaction account for daily spending and one for splurging on fun things, and multiple savings accounts for different savings goals. It’s easy to rename your accounts in the NAB app, so you can tell what each one is for.

Manage your spending

With two or more transaction accounts, you can have one account for daily expenses and one for ‘fun', as an example. To make it easier to tell them apart, when you open a NAB transaction account you can choose a black or pink debit card.

Makes saving easier

It’s easier to save for specific things if you have multiple savings accounts. For example, you could have two or more separate savings accounts to save for house, a holiday or for emergencies.

Helps you bucket your money

Putting your money into separate transaction and savings accounts or ‘bucketing’ is a smart way to get ahead with your finances. Learn more at how to bucket your money.
