What account do you have? You may have other options depending on account.I'm blaming my drop to RL4 on me withdrawing R100 at an ATM at the office - for contribution to a maternity gift for an employee - so its a happy reason, however broke my compliance with the new ebucks rules.
Now i see i need to do this at a till. Does this mean when purchasing, i need to explicitly tell the cashier - "Hi, please can i withdraw R-XXX from this card pls"? If i do the withdraw during mid transaction it would come off my CC, which would accrue interest from that second, right? And this type of thing - you can do at a Checkers + PnP. Can you do this at Spar or any other shops? And its fee-free correct?
You should use your cheque card for cash@till to avoid interest. The stores usually don't allow only cash@till, you usually need to buy something. I normally buy what I need on CC, let the transaction finish and then do a "oh no, I forgot to ask you to give me some cash, sorry!" and hand them back my card, but of course I've just switched the CC for the cheque card (some folk use difference pin numbers on their cards to avoid using the wrong one). They then just do a single cash@till transaction for me. Yes, Checkers, PnP, Spar. There may be more, I've used those 3.
