Yes.

I logged on to the Ebucks site to see that I no longer qualify. The reason? Ebucks believe that my accounts are not all in good standing. (They are).

Calling the Ebucks helpline was pointless. They could only confirm that on their system it shows a credit card of mine which is not in good standing. After two frustrating hours on the phone with various other FNB departments it seems that Ebucks somehow managed to dredge up incorrect info regarding an old FNB account I had years ago, which was settled in full and closed.

Now I wait for them to fix this.

Same here, did not qualify to earn ebucks due to accounts not in good standing, waiting for them to resolve the issue with the credit card department as all my accounts are always in good standing...

So if you have more than 1 FNB y account you have to grow each of them by R300 to get the points?
That's not how I understand the rule, but it could be their reason although not what the ebucks person told me. I was told although I have 2 FNBy accounts I grew the wrong one of the 2, they want the interest free transaction account to grow rather than the interest bearing FNBy savings. Even now for this month I have grown both the FNBy account MTD by R300 and track my rewards still doesn't pick it up. Anyway I am still waiting from my original query to be resolved as I am adamant they got the allocation wrong and because of that I am down to level 4.

What is this FNB investment goal on the calculator that gives you 100% back in Ebucks? Haven't seen this before...

Re: FNBy

With the R 300 "grow" requirement, agent and supervisor were unable to clarify when I enquired.

Example:
Month 1
Opening Balance: R 0
Deposit: R 300
Month-end Closing Balance: R 300
That's R 300 "grow" right?

Month 2
Opening Balance: R 300
Deposit: R 300
Month-end Closing Balance: R 600
That's again R 300 grow right?

Month 3
Opening Balance: R 600
Spend: R 400
Balance after spend: 200
Deposit: R 300
Month-end Closing Balance: R 500
That's R 300 "grow", but from R 200 right?

Or is only closing balance from previous month used as their basis for "growth"?

*Edit - In which case it would have to look like this:

Month X:
Opening Balance: R 10,000
Spend: R 6,000
Balance after spend: 4,000

In order to get to R 300 "growth" month-to-month, a deposit of R 6,300 will be needed. :unsure:

That seems to be correct to me.

It should, but mine didn't. They are investigating, haven't heard anything else yet. Remember you need 4x different streaming / online services. E.g 3x Google Play purchases = only 500 points, not 1500.

I did the same.

3 x R2 MTN airtime from Takealot.

I got all 3 FNB Pay transactions that I needed.
I tried this now, but I don't have the option to pay with masterpass on takealot. I've hit my minimum scan to pay for the month, but doing this on takealot will be more convenient than paying at the till at pnp or checkers.

I have 3 linked FNBy accounts and my combined deposit for all 3 was R300 and I got the points. So luckily its not for each account.
To be clear, you put R100 in each transactional FNBY account, and you qualified cos I put R300 into a transactional FNBY account and got nothing.

Yes, essentially. It was not R100 each, but in total R300 divided differently. I dont know what type of FNBy account they are, but they reflect as Cheque on the Statement description. No withdrawals were made though.

Regarding the "Growing" of the accounts, I sincerely hope we dont have to grow the accounts by R300 but rather deposit R300 each month. Being a transactional/cheque type of account, they cant expect the funds to not be withdrawn.

Is there a way to get a proof of payment after doing a scan to pay?

And where do I find this FNB virtual credit card? Or is it just being slowly rolled out to premier?
