FNB slashes smart device prices

FNB slashes smart device prices

FNB has announced that new and existing cheque and credit card customers can now qualify for an additional discount on the bank’s smartphone, tablet and laptop range.

The offer enables customers who purchase a smart device, to get an additional discount of up to either R50 or R100 off their monthly smart device re-payment over the 2-year repayment period.

“Our aim is to make electronic banking conveniently accessible to all our customers and to reward them for using those electronic banking and transaction methods,” said Kartik Mistry, head of smart device products at FNB.

The offer will apply to all brands and models in the FNB range of more than 20 devices, including the Apple iPad and MacBooks; BlackBerry smartphones; Samsung SIII and new Samsung Note 10.1; and Acer Windows laptops.

The discount of R50 kicks in when a customer who has or who applies for a personal cheque account, also takes up and uses a credit card with FNB.

The discount increases to R100 per month when customers switch a credit facility to FNB. However, FNB noted that customers do have to use the credit card and keep cash withdrawals at an ATM to a minimum.

As a practical example, FNB noted that if a customer took up the Apple iPad offer at R169 per month – and they also have an FNB credit card and meet the qualifying criteria – they will benefit from up to R100 discount per month, and will now only pay R69 per month.

“We will continue to add new devices and encourage new and existing customers to use our platforms in our drive to provide accessible and convenient banking services to our customers,” Mistry said.

New and existing customers can order their smart devices online, and view the qualifying criteria and pricing at www.fnb.co.za. This offer is only valid until end December 2012, the bank said.

    I took a phone last year from FNB. Is it possible to take another one before the end of two years.

    I just called FNB, that R100 off is if you transfer out (use) R10k from your credit card and keep it at that amount for 2years. You will be charged interest regardless so how you saving money? They will actually make money out of you!
