interesting concept once you get your head around it

basically.. you pay R39 / month and you get your monthly bank charges worth of airtime to spend

And, if you spend on your credit card, you'll earn that R39 back fairly quickly as well. Pity about the Cell C part though.

Meh. It would cost me more than three times as much as CellC's Giga package that I presently use. :thumbsdown:

This is absolutely amazing,just when I thought nobody could use more smoke and mirrors style tactics to pull the wool over consumers eyes than Vodacom,here comes my bank with something much more deceptive.

No thanks Std bank I'll keep my account with you but I'm not gonna jump through your hoops.Take your complicated mobile sim card and shove it up your sim slot.:sick:

There was a time that banking was so simple - Deposit money - Draw money - invest some and earn interest
Now there is so many options you are basically to scared to move fearing the wrong choice will be made

Pass.

Geezus, they took a look at Discovery vitality and said "Hold my beer, we can be more complicated!".
Not really. It's a pretty simple concept that I've been proposing for ages. Pay a specific amount and get a set amount to use at a certain rate. The more you pay the less your rate. Takes care of buying bundles and oob. Only I'm not with Standard Bank and they don't have any big usage plans like Cell C's 1c/MB.

I don't understand what you meant by jump through hoops?

The customer then selects Data Option 2 at R69 and Voice Option 3 at R79, which means that he has R202 free airtime left to use for calls and data.
His R202 free airtime will deplete at R0.12 per MB and at R0.79 per minute. Once his free airtime is finished, his pre-defined spend limit can be activated.
Stopped reading there. Too complicated.
