FNB customers spent R400 million in eBucks during lockdown on essential items

As South Africans battle to save money and keep things afloat during the lockdown, First National Bank revealed that its customers have spent over R451 million in eBucks during the lockdown.

There are so many ways the FNB customers can benefit from of eBucks.

Some of the different variations of eBucks include eBucks Lifestyle, eBucks discounts, Spend eBucks and eBucks Rewards.
With eBucks discounts, eBucks members can get discounts on selected items at the eBucks store and with eBucks rewards, customers are rewarded on the different ways that they bank. Customers can also use eBucks to book flights as well as hire cars online.

The bank noted that during lockdown eBucks was being used to purchase essential items.

“We’ve seen how eBucks members are using their rewards to buy essentials. Since the start of the national lockdown towards the end of March, members have spent over R451 million worth of eBucks on things like fuel, groceries, airtime and data and other day-to-day necessities, helping them stretch their monthly budgets even further,” explained chief executive officer at eBucks Rewards, Johan Moolman.

Back in June, FNB announced changes to how customers earned eBucks. This included adding Spotify and Netflix as ways for customers to earn rewards.

FNB also launched tools so that customers are able to track their rewards and earn more eBucks.

“At FNB, our philosophy has always been to find ways to help our customers. Through our eBucks Rewards programme, we are delivering on that promise by helping customers to support their cost of living expenses, rewarding members for good money management, and creating valuable opportunities to save and grow their money by supplementing their financial spend with rewards,” said Moolman.
