ME Bank, meet the Co-op
In an exciting new friendship, we’ve buddied up with our mates at ME Bank to supercharge our Co-op Member benefits and help students like you get your money needs sorted, stat!
So, what’s the deal?
Not only will all you new Members get your $25 Membership fee paid back by ME Bank, when you open a sweet ME Bank EveryDay Transaction Account, it also comes with a Debit MasterCard® to use as your day-to-day savings account (which actually doubles as your Co-op Member card). Meaning more dosh for you to spend on the important stuff like sushi and games of pool.
Whether you fancy a burger, are thirsty for a bevvy or need petrol for the trusty Toyota, the Debit MasterCard can be used anywhere, on anything as you would your normal bank card. Oh, and did we mention Members also get 5% cash back on PayPass™ purchases for the first three months? No? Well, it’s true, and it’s just another awesome feature of our partnership with the legends at ME Bank.
As we mentioned, this nifty little card doubles as a Co-op Membership card, so you’ll simply need to flash it in any of our 53 stores to receive instant benefits and savings. Discounts range across our huge collection of textbooks, fiction, non-fiction, beauty products, tech gear, games and more. #winning.
The good bits about the ME Bank offer
Co-op Members (that’ll be you!) who open an ME Bank EveryDay Transaction Account (ETA) with a co-branded Debit MasterCard® as a single account holder, will nab some awesome perks. Whew, glad we got that out in one breath. Oh sorry, the perks we mentioned? Here they are: $25 will be paid by our mates at Members Equity Bank Pty Ltd ABN 56 070 887 679 AFSL 229500 (ME Bank)into your ETA within 60 days from the date it’s opened. 5% cash back will also be paid by the ME Bank champions for 3 months from the date your ETA
is opened on all purchases made within Australia using PayPass™ Tap & Go™ on your co-branded card, for amounts of $100 or less. So no, you will not get 5% cash back on the new yacht you were about to buy… unless it’s a bath toy. The 5% cash back will be paid into your account within 30 days after the date the transaction is debited to your account. Winning! By the way, you can only get this offer on the first ETA you open and not with any other ETA offer.
But wait, there’s more…
