      Maybank iSAVvy Savings Account

      I have opened this Isavvy account since their initial launch in November 2005 at the branch. The account was mostly no-frills, earning higher deposit interest rates only if I keep my monthly deposit of over $5000 for at least 6 consecutive months period. It was not a problem to maintain this amount since there was no other bank earning similar such higher interest rates. Fund deposit is simple, I could do a fund transfer from other banks or a cash deposit using Maybank's ATM deposit machine by just keying in my account number, there was not a need to use an ATM card. However, withdrawal of cash using the ATM still needs a Maybank card. But, there was quite a few things that I do not like about this account. Firstly, there will be a fee charged if I were to use a physical branch's counter for any services, it could be to withdraw a cashier order/cash or deposit a large denominated cash note which was not accepted by the ATM deposit machine. Secondly, there was no monthly E-statement, either by email notification or available in ibanking. I have to self initiate to login to ibanking and view or download the account transactions in pdf or excel file. The viewable account transactions are only available for the past 90 days. Over 90 days, there was no way to view the transactions in ibanking. If I ever need to view those transactions, I would need to visit a physical branch to pay a fee for a copy of my past account transactions. Overall, I would still keep this account for higher deposit interest rates. And occasionally topping up this account when I have extra funds, as every 3 monthly, there would be a topup promotion earning bonus deposit interest rates.
