There's eBucks from FNB, UCount from Standard Bank, cash back with Discovery Vitality and discounts on your gym fees - rewards programmes are everywhere.

Which ones are decent and give back good value in your opinion?

I find great value in eBucks as I effectively make back my banking fees and more with every day transactions

I like eBucks, get a smack load of them usually about 7000 per month mainly from fuel.
Only other rewards thingy I have is a Clicks card, I get maybe R10 back every 3 months so not really worth making any special effort for that.

Ebucks, clicks club card, dischem. Many times clicks and dischem have helped buy nappies.

eBucks for me.

I earn a decent amount every month without having to jump through a million hoops.

Absa Rewards for me, real cash rewards not points. I easily get R400 per month cash rewards.

Any where I don't have to do anything to earn something back.
So a Pick N Pay card, or a Woolies rewards programme. No monthly fees, I buy whatever it is I'm buying and I either get a discount/ points, or I don't. I like that.
We've bought some stuff from some furniture place, Weylandts I think. They had two prices on an item - one was for card holders. So we signed up, no monthly fees, got instant discount. Yeah I get they're monitoring my spending patterns and I'm the product or whatever, but for me fits better.

What reward programme is this?
Lol. Just kidding, eBucks is of course best. Had a look at Absa's rewards programme, calculated that I would be able to earn a measly R55 per month.

Ebucks - get at least R500pm back.

Also, Momentum's rewards program is very good if you jump through all the hoops. I get R1000 per month extra over and above into my medical savings account, and I get 40% discount at Edcon purchases (Edgars, CNA etc)

ebucks, though the new rules from 1 july might cause a major change in earnings and value
