Really need help!

Option 1 or 2? Its a simple question but my brain isn't working so I can't figure it out :(

**The Question:**

If I have $60,000 in savings currently nd plan to save $1,000 per fortnight, which is the best account for me?

**Option 1:**

My current savings account is a special savings account. It has a basic interest rate of 0. 1% but if you deposit more than $1,000 in a month and have no withdrawals, then you get bonus interest of 1.8 5% for a total of 1.95% p.a. (Interest is calculated daily.)

**Option 2:**

The bank just emailed me asking if I am interested in a new BONUS SAVER Account that they are trialing to special customers. It has a bonus rate of 2.5% p.a. on all new deposits for the first 4 months and then the interest rate drops down to 1.0% p.a.

However, all interest on new deposits will still be at the BONUS RATE of 2.5% (for 4 months).
