    Please note we will no longer give you scores for some banking behaviours because you will now be rewarded for these through Absa Advantage.

    We will be launching Absa Advantage, an exciting new way to earn instant rewards for banking digitally and good banking behaviour. Another way Absa is doing more so you can get more! Look out for Absa Advantage – coming soon on your Banking App.

  • Customers under the age of 55

    Customers under the age of 55 will need to download and register on our Banking App to move above tier 1.  
  • We’re introducing apportioned spend limits

    Use your Absa card for all your shopping to get maximum cash back.

    The amount on which you earn cash back when shopping at our grocery, fuel and health and beauty partners is limited to 30% of the total value of all purchases made on any of your Absa cards, or R3 000 per category per month (whichever comes first). Be sure to always use your card for ALL your online shopping or in store and earn as much as you can!
