Ebucks monthly reminders:

1. View the "track my rewards" tab on the app. FNB app -> Ebucks -> Earn -> Track my rewards [500 points]

2. Set up at least 3 Smart budget categories and access your Smart budget every month [1000 points]. FNB app -> "Nav-igate life" -> "Nav>>Money" -> "Smart budget". (not applicable to Private Wealth clients)

3. Maintain a healthy credit score and access your Smart budget each month (not applicable to Private Wealth clients):

Light amber status: 1000 points
Light green status: 1500 points
Dark green status: 2000 points

4. (if you have kids) Have a transactional FNBy account OR grow your FNBy savings account balance [1000 points]:

Premier: R200
PC: R300
PW: R400

5. App transactions (app payments/transfers) [2000 points]:

Premier: 6 transactions
PC: 8 transactions
PW: 10 transactions

6. FNB Pay app payment (Tap to pay, Scan to Pay or Checkout) [500 points/1000 points with VCC]:

Premier: 2 transactions
PC: 3 transactions
PW: 4 transactions

Two easy options to achieve this. Either:

6.1 Buy airtime from Takealot and select Masterpass as the checkout method and scan the QR code using FNB Pay. Works via website only (not app)

OR

6.2 Donate to Gift of the Givers by scanning their Masterpass code and paying with FNB Pay: https://giftofthegivers.org/make-a-difference/donate-with-masterpass/

Option 6.2 is a bit easier and faster than option 6.1 (you don't have to add to cart and do the whole checkout process)

7. Streaming or online platforms:

Make use of/make a payment to any of the following platforms:

Deezer, iTunes, Netflix, Spotify, YouTube, Showmax, SweepSouth, Audible, Google Play, Mr D Food, Uber OR Uber Eats, PlayStation, Xbox, Google, Bolt, Checkers Sixty60

2 streaming or online services using Virtual Card: 1000 points
4 streaming or online services, at least 2 using Virtual Card: 1500 points
4 streaming or online services using Virtual Card: 2000 points

These are the ones I did this month. (Previous month's purchases might be cheaper):

7.1. Google Play - Ebook (R0.73) - https://play.google.com/store/books/details/Jack_London_The_Cruise_of_The_Dazzler?id=PI5qDwAAQBAJ

7.2. Audible - Audiobook (R12.38) - https://www.audible.com/pd/The-Monkeys-Paw-Audiobook/B0050K16DA

7.3. iTunes - a single song (R9.99)

7.4. Mr D (send a SnackMe voucher)/Uber or Uber Eats (top up your account)

I've had transactions at 6pm clear in the same month. I overshoot the petrol caps every month, so no real issue from an ebucks perspective. The Fuel saving is better for me.

Isn't it only when the funds clear?

So you could fill up and pay on the 31st but if it only clears on the 1st, then it won't count?
Yes it counts in the month the transaction clears. I've put in fuel on the 27th of the month and only cleared in the new month so that counted towards the new months cap

Hi, please confirm my understanding of Slow (International) lounge access for Private Clients. The primary card holder and 1 guest allowed. Secondary (credit) card holders also allowed, but it will be deducted from the primary account holder allocation (referring here to the annual allocation and not the bonus visits).

Each entry will reflect a charge against the card which will be reversed. Is the reversal immediate?

Thanks
