Hey guys is there special trick to pay drakenstein municipal bill? First bill from them as it is new property. Tried easypay on the clicks app.

No special trick. I saw that error with prepaid accounts too. Confirm with clicks if its supported...

I would first try normal easypay. Try R50 for starters, as a test.

Hi guys.

Two questions. If I transfer money from my FNB savings pocket into my FNB cheque account, does that count towards the minimum monthly deposit to qualify for eBucks or do the funds need to be external?

I’d also like to ask if I pay my electricity bill at Clicks, does it count towards 15% off?

Thank you

Deposit, no. It must be from an external account.

Clicks, yes.

I wish they can delete that section in the app. Its purely false/incorrect info ! I dont even want to know how many queries eB or FNB must attend to regarding "it showed that day this, it is now that .... WHY".

Do it manually ! Or rather wait until allocation day

When are we going to learn not to pay attention to track my rewards?! It's the same comments every freakin month
Mine has been fairly accurate this far though.
I noticed that streaming & online platforms have not worked since the July change too which is consistent with the track my rewards app, yet everything else reflects correctly

The track my rewards are useful, sometimes when the busy adjusting it we don't need to worry about it (like the tap to scan).

Does anyone know (I know it was for previous rules just want to confirm it's for the current rules as well), that the savings pocket counts for the rule to "maintain a monthly balance of X amount across your FNB savings and investment account?"

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

I got a second credit card on my credit card account. My wife uses it now. So all the credit card purchases that used to be split between 2 accounts are now combined. I also only try to buy from Checkers, Clicks, Takealot etc where I get Ebucks rewards.

I see tap to pay/scan to pay magically resets on certain date? I had like 15 before the 28th and now just 0/2+. So I did make 2 scan to pays via TA for airtime :rolleyes:

Can you use a VCC for a future subscription, I added my VCC to a YouTube sub but they'll only bill the card for the first time next month by which time the CVV will have changed?
