My Virgin Money - Savings
Get your savings in shape
Manage my account
From another bank or direct credit – You can transfer money (such as your salary, savings, wages, dividends or tax refunds) from any other bank account in Australia. To transfer money into your Virgin Saver Account, all you need is your Account number and our Virgin Money BSB 242-265.
Send us a cheque – Please ensure you make the cheque payable to the same name that the Virgin Saver is in and please write your account number and contact phone number on the back of the cheque and post it to:
Virgin Money Pty Limited,
GPO Box 40,
Sydney NSW 2001
Sorry, but we can’t guarantee cheques received without a clear name and account number noted on them will be deposited into your account.
A one off transfer using your Virgin Money Online account – Simply log into your Virgin Money Online Account and head to 'Payments &Transfers'. Then select 'Make a Payment & Transfer' select your linked account in the 'To Account' section and follow the prompts.
Set up an Automatic Savings Plan (ASP)
You can also set up an Automatic Savings Plan by following the steps above and selecting the 'Set schedule' option. It's important to know the beginning date of your Automatic Savings Plan needs to be at least one day after the day you're creating it.
Transfer money from other places and save even faster
It’s another smart way of getting your hands on whatever you’re saving for, quicker. You can put part of your salary straight into your Virgin Saver each pay day. That way from the day you get paid, you’re earning a high variable interest rate. That means faster savings for you.
Here's how to move some of your salary
- Step 1:
- Decide how much you’d like to save from your salary each pay day.
- Step 2:
- Ask your work’s payroll department if they can direct credit salaries. If so, give them your Virgin Saver BSB (it’s 242-265), account number and name and tell them how much to put in.
- Step 3:
- Now you can relax. Your payments will be made automatically to your Virgin Saver.
It’s important to know that you can’t deposit funds from any source outside of Australia or make a cash deposit at any time into your Virgin Saver Account.
Clearing times that apply to some transfers
There are clearing times that apply to some deposits. Cheque deposits will take 5-7 business days to clear. Automatic Savings Plan and one-off direct debit requests made using Virgin Money Online from your Linked Account will take 5 business days to clear. During this time, the funds deposited in your account will show as funds ‘On deposit’ and not as ‘Funds available’ but will continue to earn interest during the clearance period.
The interest rate applicable to your account may change depending on your account balance and other factors, so always make sure you’re up to date with any of our offers and the terms and conditions that apply to them, which you can find on our website virginmoney.com.au/savings.
Once your account is activated the funds transfer functionality will become operational and you’ll be able to log onto Virgin Money Online or use our Telephone Self Service and request a withdrawal to your Nominated Linked Account. There is a daily withdrawal limit of $10,000 via our Telephone Self Service and $100,000 via Virgin Money Online.
If you need to withdraw an amount greater than $100,000, you can complete a manual request form through Virgin Money Online. You’ll find the form in the ‘Manage My Accounts’ section in the ‘My Account’ tab.
For any future dated withdrawals, deposits or Automatic Savings Plans there is a $10,000 limit.
It’s important to remember that you can only transfer money back to your Nominated Linked Account and not to any other bank account.
Generally, we’ll transfer your money to your linked account on the day of your withdrawal request, if we receive it before 4pm Sydney time on a business day. Any requests outside this time will be processed on the next business day.
And just a word on fees, although we don’t charge any fees whatsoever to your Virgin Saver, unfortunately, we don’t have any control over other financial institutions, their fees and charges or any government legislation or controls that may create costs on your transactions.

You’ll need to reactivate your Virgin Saver Account by transferring funds from your new linked account, and you can do this anytime from when the account has been changed. For your additional security and to protect your account from fraudulent activity you’ll be unable to make a withdrawal from your Saver Account for a 5 day period from when the Nominated Linked Account is changed. So if you’re going to need any of the funds held in your account during this period, it’s best to make a withdrawal prior to changing your linked account.
