- A minimum amount of HK$10,000 is required to establish a MaxiSavings account.
- MaxiSavings consists of MaxiSavings - TD ("Non-fixed Deposit") and MaxiSavings - Checking ("Checking") accounts.
- Non-fixed Deposit is a time deposit which allows partial withdrawal before maturity day. All partial withdrawal before maturity day must be done via Checking account in HK$1,000 or its multiples. If customer holds more than one Nonfixed Deposit, we will select the one with the least interest loss per withdrawal unit for customer's withdrawal.
- The interest of partial withdrawn amount will be calculated at Pre-Termination Interest Rate from the day of the funds are deposited into the Non-fixed Deposit account until the day before withdrawal. It will be credited to Checking account on the next business day after withdrawal.
- The final balance under Non-fixed Deposit on maturity day will earn the Contract Interest Rate.
- The interest rate for any remaining balance in the Checking account after withdrawal is the same as that for normal Checking account.
- If the remaining balance of Non-fixed Deposit is less than HK$1,000 after withdrawal, this balance will also be transferred to Checking account automatically.
- Only Non-fixed Deposit and Checking accounts with the same account holder can be linked to enjoy withdrawal facility through the Checking account. One Checking account can be linked to one or several Non-fixed Deposit with different tenor in one account with the same currency. However, any such linked MaxiSavings CANNOT be charged or otherwise used as security for another banking product.
- Upon maturity, Non-fixed Deposit will be disposed to designated account or rolled over based on customer instruction where the interest rate is determined at the time of transaction day.
- The MaxiSavings account opening will normally be completed within 5 business days from receipt of application. Interest will be calculated from the day the funds are available in the Non-fixed Deposit account upon the day of successful check clearance or fund transfer.
- If the MaxiSavings account is terminated before the maturity day, an account closure fee of HK$500 will apply.
- This offer cannot be used in conjunctions with other offers.
