Hello, could anyone assist a not so clever ebucks man out please.

Im currently on level 4 and only need 500 points to get to level 5.

Problem is, my only options seem to cost me something.

I can do my will, but I don't necessarily want my will through a bank as I've heard it's not a good idea with fees.

I can do all the invest and save options, but as someone supporting 2 families, I don't really have much to invest or save...

I can't do the home option..

And all the insurance options you need to pay for.

Is there anything else I can do or some trick, where it doesn't cost me anything to get an extra 500 points?

Most of the free things I've maxed where I can.

Thank you so much View attachment 1077845 View attachment 1077847

I know this has been discussed before but assist this simple mind:
1. What is the benefit of premier fusion besides the 1000 ebucks allocation?
2. Does premier fusion with CC for R209 come with 2 cards i.e fusion cheque and credit card?
3. What is the R10000 limit as per the screenshot attached?
3. When is the best time to move accounts without affecting your e-bucks level?

Have read the rules and pricing guide and it just wreaked my head:(
please assist

40% off P40 Pro

I was so keen to buy the p40 pro at 40% discount, but it seems like it is missing some google services which I kinda got accustomed to.

If I misunderstand the restrictions the US put on Huawei, please let know. I might just get one.

Thank you so much

I have my will with them, their fee's arent that much higher than anyone elses

well for me anyways, they have all my policies etc, so it just makes sense to me. Also, its a once off thing and you are sure to have 500 points spare every month incase you miss something small



Other easy wins,
Fnb mobile,
Streaming options
set your CC card debit date

This triple eBucks thing is v interesting.
So if one usually gets 15% back in eBucks for Clicks, triple that would be 45%.
In combination with my Discovery Vitality, I'll get 50% back on healthy items.
Now, essentially I'll be getting 95% worth back.
Right?

Check your earn rules as it has limitations :
  • Where you earn eBucks on Qualifying Clicks Purchases, you will then not earn additional rewards for general shopping purchases on those qualifying Clicks Purchases.


But I'm not going to snub 45% off from Clicks for something I need to buy.

This I understand, but I doubt Discovery and FNB cross-reference their systems.

Don't you have to pay with your Discovery Bank card to get 50% back?

I have not tested this and tbh I don't know. They do say that you have to pay with the card, but I'm not sure if they enforce this because the HealthyCare number is linked to your Dischem/Clicks cards, so that's how they link the cashback. Has anyone tested this and knows for sure?

Also, you don't really have to spend money to buy stuff if you use your Dischem/Clicks points. A following question is if you earn miles/eBucks on purchases using your credit/points on healthy items?

Cheapest that comes in with the 2.1 is the Samsung Q70t. Cheapest I've seen it is 13k. Hopefully ebucks come in with it by black Friday. Saving them eb.....

yeah hopefully rules dont change that you lose the 40%

Clicks pay for those ebucks earns, just like Takealot, but it all comes out of marketing budgets. Don't know how they handle the Discovery though.

But for this promo you pay using your virtual FNB card online so won't get DMiles.

Not the most ethical thing but you can store your will with them then change it to a newer version - newest will wins always
