From 1 July 2019, eBucks Rewards members will have an opportunity to earn Double their fuel rewards on a quarterly basis with up to R8* back in eBucks per litre at Engen fuel stations.

To keep the eBucks rewards programme relevant and sustainable for all its members, eBucks Rewards are updated on an annual basis. This year, the focus is on customer engagement to help FNB and RMB Private Bank clients move up reward levels, ultimately supporting their financial goals and helping them make their money go further.

Since inception in 2000, eBucks Rewards has paid out over R12.3 billion in rewards to its members, and members already having spent more than R11 billion of their rewards. The lion’s share of this comes from FNB and RMB Private Bank, recognising and rewarding customers based on customer relevance that suits their lifestyle and banking activities.

“This year we are very excited to announce that we have introduced new Earn categories for our members that are relevant to their lifestyles. We’re also giving customers additional value with travel discounts for the whole family,” said Johan Moolman, eBucks Rewards CEO.

To achieve their goals, eBucks members have been equipped with tools on the FNB App such as “Earn More eBucks” and “Maximise your Rewards”, which allow you to track your daily behaviour and get tips on how to reach your rewards goals to move up a reward level.

“Our members can expect to access other meaningful innovations under the eBucks tab on the FNB App such as Pay in eBucks, a new feature which allows members to pay for their recent in-store purchases in eBucks helping them manage their money better,” added Moolman.

As always, eBucks Rewards members are encouraged to follow good banking practices and use electronic banking channels which provide greater security and are a more convenient way to bank.
