There is no cap to the deposit amount for customers to enjoy this rate and customers can apply for a CIMB StarSaver account via the website at

“The CIMB StarSaver is an account that gives you high returns. There are no multiple conditions to fulfil to earn up to 2% p.a. interest rate. There is no need to do salary-crediting with us, have a minimum spend on your CIMB credit card or any of those prerequisites such as purchasing an insurance or investment product from us. There are also no fall-below fees or the need to deposit fresh funds for a lock-in period for customers to enjoy these fixed deposit-like interest rates. We want to always offer the best value to our customers, making it easy for them to save and to bank with us,” shared Mr Victor Lee, CEO, CIMB.

Before August this year, CIMB’s highest interest rate for their savings account was at 0.2% so with the new rates that started to effect on 1 September, customers will enjoy interest rates which are up to 10 times higher than before.
