What is the interest?

Smart Save is a short term Savings account, so the interest is not very high but you do get immediate access to your cash. A balance of R 15 000 in the account for example earns1.25% interest per year which equals R187.50 per year (about .52 cents a day and about R15.60 a month). If you need access to your cash but still want to earn a little interest, then Smart Save is the account for you.
