That's the million eBucks question... Some say to do it right after allocation. The consultant advised me to wait till the beginning of the next month. Option two makes sense to me as otherwise surely you lose out on the balance of your June Gold earn by switching mid month.

But disclaimer, I'm honestly not completely sure what the best thing to do is.
I made this mistake, you drop an eBucks level immediately....so I got lev4 rewards....not happy....

Interesting thing, so i set up scheduled payments to my wife and kids and it immediately switches to transfer, that way its excluded from the 6 needed transacts for the premier account

Switch on 1st and dont swipe credit card until u receive premier card:)
I upgraded to PW on 18 Sept 2020, the credit card division (or my banker) made a mistake and/or there was a miscommunication so they ended up taking 4 weeks to deliver my new credit card, so I was forced to use my new Fusion card instead (delivered 1 week later) until the credit card arrived on 15 October.

When the eBucks allocation was done in October they treated my 1-17 September spend as if I was PC level 1 which was incorrect, and then it took them 4 months to fix the mistake after much back and forth.

As the consultant advised @Vuilhaas I think doing the upgrade on the 1st might just be for the best as it should in theory be easier to sort out once they make a mess up for June's eBucks earn calculations.

For the new rules it costs R23/month for the petro card
So we should be cancelling our Petro cards if we don't want to risk being charged for them.

For PW it appears not be included any longer as part of the monthly fee, page 14:

This is the petrol card fee that is linked to one's current account (on page 43):

The Petro Card is a different product which can be linked to one's credit card, but this info below is for the standalone product:

OK so something is weird.. I got my 'triple alocation' for clicks for a purchase I made of R459(just to test)using the Vcc.. So according to me as R459x45%=R206.. They credited my account with two amounts of eb690(So R138) .. Any theories?

I receive my normal allocation of 15% on the 10th for clicks which was correct.this is what it looks like for the 45%.. One says double and other other says triple but it was one transaction of R459

15% is 690 ebucks of your R459 spend.
So 1st 15% on 10th.
Then the double is 15%
Theb the tripple is another 15%

But tye 10th is for whole month and double and triple only 24 to 31 may

I’d imagine you had probably already got the original eb 690 with your normal Ebucks payment? This morning’s 2 payments are to make up the triple payment (690 x 3 = 2070)

I paid an easy pay acc of over R2500 (which is my cap) and I got 3750 x 2 today
I already had the first 3750
(3750 x 3 = 11250)
And R1125 is 45% of R2500 so I’m very happy!

The values look correct depending on the account type you have. Did you go over your monthly cap?

The way I understood it.. Is 1059@15% and R459@45%?Am I misunderstanding it.. OK so put my mind at ease.. If I go and spend R1500 using Vcc at on clicks website (Level 5 gold) I should get eb6750 ebucks in July?

The answer to your question: It depends....
You didnt answer what account type you on and what your clicks monthly 15% cap is.
