I just logged in to my internet banking and the bank has taken $25.00 in transaction fees for the month! This is from my everyday savings account. Way too much IMO.
Can anyone recommend a bank that offers a fee-free or low fee account? It will be used as a main everyday banking account, so my pay will go in, direct debits will come out, will use to Bpay bills etc.
I'm on a tight budget as it is and I simply cannot stand being charged so much to access my own money

Degrassi, I used to be with Bendigo Bank and found their fee's to be ridiculous. When DP and I met she was so wrapped with her bank. She was with ANZ and she can transfer/ BPAY/ ATM/ etc all she wants for the month and she only gets charged $5.
They also allow her to overdraw and don't charge any fee's unless it's over $50 and then they charge her $6 a day that's been overdrawn. This is not a problem as we never overdraw our account and if we accidentally do we can transfer money on the ANZ app straight from savings into the everyday account.
I was totally jealous of her cool ANZ app and her $5 monthly fee no matter what that I changed banks.

We use ING and they have no account fees and no withdrawal fees. We moved to them after NAB kept taking out regular $1 'miscellaneous transactions' and couldn't explain what it was. It wasn't till we moved to ING we found out it was PayPal taking out $1 for every time we bought something off ebay for some bloody reason. Thankfully ING tells them where to shove it every time

Oh I should mention that the $5 fee is because we wanted VISA debit cards so we could shop online, not just everyday account cards.

I bank with CUA and don't cop any fees. They only do 4 transactions a month but if you meet certain criteria you get more. I think i get 10 or 15/month, I don't use them though as I prefer to use credit for everything. The debit cards are free.
I'd personally stay away from the big 4, how much they profit is a good indication of why. Have you looked into Newcastle permanent? A lot of people seem to use them/are happy with them.

ING - they pay you to be with them, for the first 6 months you get 5% cash back on every purchase where you use paypass and then after that it is 2.5%.
