FAQs on Citi MaxiGain Savings Account

Click on    to expand and on    to minimise the details.

You will earn base interest and bonus interest on your Citi MaxiGain Savings Account ("MaxiGain account") if certain criteria are met.

The Bank shall pay you base interest of 0.01% p.a. on your average daily balance at the end of each month. No minimum balance is required to earn Base Interest.

Your balances capped at S$70,000 shall accrue bonus interest at a rate ("Bonus Interest Rate") that steps up each month, from 0.025% p.a. to a maximum of 0.3% p.a., if the lowest balance in your MaxiGain account in a month is equal to or greater than the lowest balance in the previous month.

The Counter increases by 1 each time the Bonus Interest Rate steps up. The Bonus Interest Rate steps up in a month if the lowest balance in that month is equal to or greater than the lowest balance in the previous month. Bonus interest is computed based on the previous month's lowest balance and number of calendar days in the previous month. The lowest amount of funds in your MaxiGain account at any point in time in a month shall be the "lowest balance" of that month.

Please see the table below for illustration:

  Month 1 Month 2 Month 3
Lowest Balance S$30,000 S$75,000 S$80,000
Number of days in month 28 31 30
Counter 0 1 2
Bonus Interest Rate 0% p.a. 0.025% p.a. 0.05% p.a.
Bonus interest N.A S$30,000 x 0.025% x 28/365 = S$0.58 S$70,000 x 0.05% x 31/365 = S$2.97

The lowest balance of that month will be the lowest amount of funds in your MaxiGain account at any point in time in the month (which includes the first day on which your MaxiGain account is opened). The lowest balance for the first month will be zero if the MaxiGain account is not funded on the day it is opened.
