No points. No bucks. Just real Cash Rewards

The real beauty of being an Absa Rewards member is that you can choose exactly how you would like to be rewarded. That’s because Rewards are earned in cold, hard cash - yes, rands, not points - and are paid directly into your Absa Rewards account.

  • Cash Rewards from Absa

    Swipe your card anywhere and anytime

    Simply use your Absa debit, cheque or credit card to pay for your purchases and you will earn Cash Rewards on the first R200 000 worth of qualifying purchases** during an accrual period (Accrual Period is from the 16th of a month to the 15th of the following month).

    The more you have with Absa, the more you earn

    The percentage of Cash Rewards you can earn is determined by your Rewards tier. Your Rewards tier is calculated based on the number of products you hold in each category of qualifying products, together with your transactional account. Please note that multiple products of the same type (for example having two savings accounts) will only count once towards your Rewards tier.

    Rewards Tiers

    Tier 1:

    Earn 0, 25% if you have one transactional account - for example, a cheque account only.

    Tier 2:

    Earn 0, 5% if you have one transactional account and any two qualifying accounts – for example, a credit card, together with a personal loan and vehicle finance.

    Tier 3:

    Earn 1% if you have one transactional account and any three or more qualifying accounts – for example, a cheque account, together with a credit card, home loan, and vehicle.

  • Cash Rewards from Partners

    Shop and pay at any of our reward partners

    Use your Absa debit, cheque or credit card at any one of these Partners and you will earn a percentage of your purchase amount back in Cash Rewards. Whether you are looking to buy clothing, books or a tv, you can earn Cash Rewards.

    Sasol

    *Excludes bill payments, pre-paid airtime, and electricity and lotto purchases. You will only earn Cash Rewards on the first R3 000 (three thousand rand) that you spend at Sasol during the accrual period.

    Example:
