How safe is it to buy ebucks from other members here or on carbonite? What precautions do you guys take?
Do you pay first and then they send the ebucks?
You need some measure of trust or face to face. If you buy then you usually pay first then other party sends ebucks. Always risks involved. As I said checkers is just in rotation doubt it will be here next month...

Is it possible that checkers has an agreement with ebucks for vouchers starting in 2019?

I'm using Easypay so it counts as online spend.

I'm sure there's other ways to maximise by going to some store and using some voucher, but I'm too lazy for all that...

I'm saying it's an observation. Every month since Feb last year we have had Dischem and then one of the cum pro shop or hifi corp vouchers. This month there are none but there is checkers. I think next month cum group will be back or hifi etc and checkers will be back in months to come..

Banks' credit scoring mechanisms and pricing models are very proprietary - they are pretty much the only competitive advantage they can have in the credit space.
If nav money isn't an exact reflection, can one presume one's credit rating to be favourable if one is periodically offered card and overdraft increases?

Not sure
I know there's a formula they use to do those limit increases...

I forgot to pay a Standard Bank credit card once and later that month or beginning of the next all my offers were gone (except a small temporary loan).

Two or three days after payment all offers were back.

Your should be able to view your score once per year at the credit agencies. Also, clear score gives you a monthly report

I guess I can't just rely on one indicator and best to check with the above too, thanks.

I see clear score won't need bank details, but do need bank details to verify... :D
And its members all appear to be foreigners and operate (assumption) from outside SA.

A few days
It's been more than a month now and still no charge. Hopefully the discontinuation of priority pass from fnb removed the link to charge for domestic use.

My priority pass is still valid until June 2019 with 8 more visits remaining. I also have the new Lounge Key card but will not be using it at the domestic lounges.

Edit. At no point did I have to swipe my fnb card. They just scanned the priority card barcode on my phone and let me in. With lounge key you have to swipe your fnb card. Could also be why they did not charge my credit card.
