anyone else receive their smart spend this morning? i received a payment but the smart spend calculator is not updated on the app

My Smart Spend updated on 22 Sep
Smart Spend eBucks received on 23 Sep

I did a calculation this morning, I did hit the next tier on the 27th but it has not updated yet.
I am really hoping my transactions clear before the 1st. I will then hit the next tier.
If not, so be it. :)
My Smart Spend has now updated to the 25th.

I have a “savings” debit order of R2750 to guarantee 1000 points. I see that for R50 more I can get 2000 points (RA) Is this a good option or is there a better investment I should choose? TIA
Well one has no tax benefits (unless off course it is a TFSA,) one has (RA)

I have a Fusion account as well as a CC. Does spending on my CC also add to my Smart Spend "pool"?

I'm trying to find ways in which to increase my Smartspend as I have quite a few bills/payments that I make every month via plain EFT's, such as school fees, ad hoc medical bills and other random payments.

I assume the only way is if the merchants have some sort of online/credit card payment facility? Or is there a way I'm overlooking?
If they don't have credit card facilities, then there is nothing you can do about it.

I usually average between R2,500 and R3,000 in EBucks per month.
If you dont mind me asking, what do you do to get there.
Does stuff like your homeloans and debit orders count towards smart spend?
New to this game and thinking of moving to FNB

Google the 2021 ebucks calculator and play around on it.
You will find it quite useful

Hmm seems like just doing my regular food and petrol shopping is already getting me 4500 eb. Man this is so much better than Nedbank

It is indeed better than Nedbank. If you have any bills with EasyPay numbers (e.g. property tax, MTN contract) pay them via Clicks website and you'll boost earn even more.
