I hardly use my CC, but I have noticed some arb things. About 2 years ago when I tried buying my phone through the Orange store, I got denied. Phoned them up, and same thing, didn't have permission to shop online.
Then, when my CC got absolutely totalled because of random fraud, they sorted it out quickly, which was great. But when I asked them to activate SMS alerts when it's swiped, they wanted to charge me for each notification. I thought that was rather lame . FNB doesn't charge me :/ I declined, seeing as though they are the ones that lose money when it happens.
But it seems that they do sometimes send SMS alerts when you type in your PIN incorrectly. Discovered that the other day when my father got it wrong.
Trust me you paying for the SMSs by FNB. They recover those costs some other way.
