Your online banking term deposit only send out paper auto renewal notice + 7 days grace period. I went for a 4 weeks holiday and missed the grace period. I needed my money in next 2 months and it is locked into a six months TD.


The result of that I was punished with a $300 fine and had to wait for 31 days to get my money back.


My issue is that your Bank encourage online banking but you give no concern in we may not get the paper notice or we are on long holiday. Also when I open the TD you don't clearly indicated you will auto renew it with the same term.
