Do you know all of the benefits your credit card offers you? You get rewarded for using your card, you can access your transaction history and also manage your account online.
During this period of COVID-19, many South African consumers are experiencing financial difficulties due to lockdown restrictions. Being wise about the Rewards we offer you during this time will help you stretch your money and earn cash back just for using your cards for day-to-day transacting.
If you are part of our Rewards Programme we offer cash back for swiping your debit and credit cards. You can use your Rewards as cash, convert to data and airtime, donate to a charity or simply keep for a rainy day. What’s more, you don’t need a separate Rewards card to earn your Rewards. Take the time to educate yourself about our innovative Rewards programme by searching ‘Rewards’ and reap the benefits of your knowledge with great cash back every month.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, fraudsters are introducing new scams to defraud consumers. It’s vital for you to ensure that no erroneous deductions are being made from your bank accounts. Ensure that you have signed up with our NotifyMe service to get real-time messages when there is any activity on your account. You can also set up notification channels and amounts you want to receive notifications on.
Absa’s Banking App allows you to view your 90-day transaction history and available balance on your bank accounts, and so much more. Check your Banking App regularly and if any suspicious transactions have been processed on your account, call our fraud department and report this immediately. The sooner you report an issue the better, as this allows us to block any cards where fraud has taken place and investigate the issue to minimise personal losses.
It’s safer and easier to manage your account yourself on the Banking App. Familiarise yourself with all of the wonderful functionality the Banking App offers you. Here’s just a few:
- Stop and replace your card
- Retrieve your card’s pin
- View your card statement
- Lock or unlock transactions on your card
- View your card’s details (such as 16-digit card number and expiry date)
