An Post Smart Current Account is shortlisted for the Consumer Finance Product of the Year at the FS Tech Awards 2018.

The Smart Account is a payment account with all the benefits of a standard current account and more. Smart Account includes dedicated BIC and IBAN numbers, and a Mastercard Debit Card along with online and app accessibility.  Importantly though, the Account introduces two unique additional features.

The first, Smart Account’s innovative digital wallets, allow users to subdivide spending, budgeting and bill payments. The second, MoneyBack, is an industry leading cash-back loyalty scheme, benefitting customers who use the account at selected retailers.

Since its launch, the An Post account has achieved 3 key areas of success;

  • A diversified and expanded service portfolio for An Post, including the option of banking-grade financial services to 1.7million current customers weekly and the ability to reach new customers.
  • Vital community support through the maintenance of the national post office branch structure – a key social and community resource.
  • A new national scale banking competitor, providing financial access to a broader range of customers, reaching new demographics and securing existing customer loyalty.

The account was given high acclaim in the Irish Independant;  “An innovative new Smart Current Account has been launched by An Post with a tangible money back feature which has been praised by consumer advocate, The Money Doctor John Lowe, who points out that Irish consumers now have the chance to “easily make considerable savings on their everyday household spend”.

A game-changer in the current account market, the Smart Account combines a MoneyBack feature, along with other innovative features such as the Smart Account Wallet, a household budgeting tool”.
