Since its acquisition by Westpac, the St.George offering has expanded throughout Australia’s economic boom states, Queensland and Western Australia. The acquisition of the Bank SA and Bank of Melbourne brands have also assisted St.George’s growth and expansion.
In terms of credit cards, the St.George Vertigo balance transfer credit card is proving to be very popular, and St. George continues to service a large customer base for traditional non-credit card banking products. The bank’s core offering is one low-rate, mid tier and top-tier card, as well as the Vertigo balance transfer card. These are all explained in slightly more detail in the credit cards tab.
In 1848 the State Bank of South Australia and the Savings Bank of South Australia were both opened for business in South Australia. The two would later merge, but before that the St.George Cooperative Building Society was formed in Sydney in 1937. The Cronulla & District Cooperative Building Society was formed a month later. The two expanded quickly and 38 branches were established by 1955. That year they became one permanent building society.
The first Sydney branch was opened in 1961, followed by the first Sydney City CBD branch in 1963.
St.George established itself as a technologically forward bank in 1972 when it established the first passbook banking system to enable withdrawals from other bank branches. By the time of its acquisition by Westpac in 2008, St. George was the fifth largest bank in Australia. It also operates in the Northern Territory and South Australia under its brand BankSA.
