I checked yesterday morning... Didn't see any phones unless I missed it somehow.
Sigh the trauma of missing deals you waiting months for.

And they seem to be spread across the app and the website and not necessarily in the 'deals' category.

Is that link still active or is it just getting going again? Shows no messages since BF and latest activity is a ton of people joining/leaving.
This is a new group / link

We had 4 groups of 256 members per group

We've now consolidated them since the recent update of WhatsApp allowing 512 members

Bought it. Hope the hinge doesn't give any issues. I see it's disappeared from the store now :oops:

Assuming it's the same 1st gen phone, there were warnings about it on the whatsapp group..

[1:03 pm, 15/06/2022] +27 76 453 : And it is the first edition, launched Feb 2020.
[1:05 pm, 15/06/2022] +27 83 448 : Old old old.
[1:07 pm, 15/06/2022] +27 82 763 : Yeah flip 3 is out currently
I wouldn't purchase these 1st gen flips
Just my opinion

I don't see that GA503 on 40% off on my side. Wonder if I just missed it again.

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 (R0.15) - https://play.google.com/store/books/details/David_Adams_Magnet?id=wVobAgAAQBAJ

7.2. Audible - Audiobook (R15.26) - https://www.audible.com/pd/The-Hand-Audiobook/B007A3345I

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

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

So i didn't realise there were PINs assigned to the virtual cards :X3:. I was prompted to enter my PIN when tapping to pay using FNB Pay. Tried my credit and fusion card PINs to no avail and then resorted to tapping my physical credit card.

Edit: only once I got home I looked in the FNB app under Cards and saw that there was indeed a viewable PIN for my virtual cards.

Snap, I didn't know this either.
