Not the most exciting deal, but useful for a dual-citizen like me because you can open the account with RealMe and have it as travel account.

Would have really liked to have this account because today my Citibank AU card got declined at PakNSave Fuel, Waitomo and was finally accepted at Gull… :/

Also some places are ETFPOS only.

    Thanks man, super helpful :)


    Thats interesting, my commonwealth bank AU card has never been declined in NZ.


      I only have issues with CitiBank and buying fuel.

      I imagine it has something to do with taking out $150 as a deposit and refunding whatever you don't use or something as is written on the pump.

      My friend has a Bendigo Bank AU travel card and that requires signature so the automatic pumps don't accept it.

      The other day I was went to a massage therapist and they only took NZ EFTPOS.

    If you want to use it as a travel account, a better option might be Transferwise. Someone posted a cheapies deal on Transferwise a while ago.

      My Citibank AU card gives me a very good rate, but the issue is more that NZ EFTPOS only terminals and NZ petrol stations reject the card sometimes, probably meaning I need a domestic card.

    Transferwise is great. Used it to go to Aussie and got a much better exchange rate than the bank. Easy as.
