Anybody had their fuel spend resolved yet?

Not yet resolved and I thought it would be sorted out this morning. Let’s give it until this week. The last eBucks update was on the 11th of June 2021. I believe they will run another one before Friday 18 June 2021.

Also remember having PC back in the day and then banker told me they're rebranding.

Anyway just don't see them merging PC and PW.

Buy a single song on iTunes. Some are R7.99 (Check out The Kiffness)
Buy an Ebook from Google Play. Most are around a few rands.
Buy an audiobook from Audible. Can get them for <R20
I will check those R7.99 songs, I saw some apps that were R3.99 on the App Store (I hope that counts). I'm looking at the cheapest item I can get on iTunes.

The Google Play books I always but these ones, I already have more than 50 on my wishlist so that I don't have to search everytime. There are books that are even less than R1 on Google Play, this is an easy one.

I have searched Audible for cheap audio book but everything is expensive there. I have never seen anything for <R20.

If you do get those cheap items, please do share a link.

One more thing, on the streaming or online platforms there is *YouTube, Google Play, Google. The first two are straight forward but what can one get from Google? Does Google one count as Google?

A question the FNB brains... lol :giggle:

I just upgraded to Premier.
I get the notification on the app to upgrade to PW.
I want to upgrade just for the higher credit.
If I upgrade would it have an additional cc or change my Premier?
If it changes and then I downgrade will I keep my new credit limits ?

Thanks guys

Im new to asking questions here but have been reading this chat forever and always a great help and benefit
Thanks

It baffles my mind on how you could have been on Gold whereas you are supposed to be on PW. Or are you just a humble person? I am very close to R1.5m annual income for the PW and has never received a notification to upgrade to PW.

Lets chat in a few years again!
There's no point. You're wrong.
Somebody earning R800k a year has different needs in terms of financial services to someone earning R3m a year.
You point is like saying that Easy and Aspire will be merged. They won't because it makes no sense.

Ok, so really dumb question here. On this rule...

"Have an FNB Home Loan, FNB Structured Loan or Single Facility and use at least 30% during the month."

What do they mean by "... and use at least 30% during the month"?

Theoretically your credit limit is separate to you card colour.
You could apply for a credit limit increase without upgrading you account type.
#thisIsNotFinancialAdvice but be careful with taking out too much unsecured credit.
Before you upgrade, just research the eBucks requirements carefully to make sure you can max them out.

If you have a home loan for an original value of R1m, you can't owe the bank less than R300k
EDIT: I'd guess this also refers to the funds you keep in your access facility

lol Why pay so much for PW when you can get all the ebucks on Premier

Screenshot just for reference, not sure it was needed though.

Yeah Understood.

I don't really want to use the credit, Just to have the availability of credit. If that makes sense. :giggle:

Thanks
