Age group Monthly Criteria
14 – 17 years There are no criteria required to activate the benefits. You’re already good to go.
18 – 24 years
Deposit $1,000 or more from another financial institution (such as your salary) into your Virgin Money Go Account and make at least 5 purchases, direct debits or BPAY payments which settle in that month (not pending). Ready? Go.
Over 25 years

The Monthly Criteria vary by age and includes a minimum deposit and minimum number of transactions each month that must be made into a Virgin Money Go Account that is issued in the same name. Simply meet the following criteria each month to activate your bonus interest benefit for the following month.

Rate type Interest Rate (p.a.)
Base Interest Rate 0.10%
Bonus Interest Rate 1.10%
Highest Variable Interest Rate (Base plus Bonus Interest Rates) 1.20%

Important Information on Bonus Interest for Boost Savers:

  • The highest variable interest rate (Base Interest Rate plus Bonus Interest Rate) can be activated on all your Boost Savers in the same name as your Go Account when you cumulatively meet the Monthly Criteria in the Monthly Criteria dropdown. For clarity, if you hold an account(s) in your name as an individual, and an account(s) in two names (joint account), you will be required to meet the Monthly Criteria on each account type (individual and joint) to activate the benefits for both.
  • The Bonus Interest rate applies up to a combined total balance of $250,000 across all Boost Savers in the same name.

  • Q. When will my bonus interest get applied on my Virgin Money Boost Saver?

    Your bonus interest will be activated on the first day of each month when the Monthly Criteria has been met in the previous month. Keep in mind, if you are making your 5 purchases to activate your bonus interest (and 8 points per purchase on your Go Account), your purchases will need to settle (that means not ‘pending’) in your account that month. If it’s still pending at the end of the month, you won’t get your points or your bonus interest.
