Those who have signed up to Old Mutual Rewards can earn points through a variety of actions and tasks.

Rewarding members even more with Money Account
Old Mutual Rewards members with a Money Account receive points for swipes on your Money Account.
Points are awarded at a rate of 1% of spend on each Money Account swipe. In other words, members will receive one point for every R100 spent.
To maintain their Money Account tier, you only need to have a minimum deposit of R2500 per month, swipe your card five times in the previous month (for a minimum of R100 each) and have one debit order coming off your account.
Old Mutual Rewards further provides members with financial tools that empower them to manage their money better and improve their budgeting skills through 22Seven.
22seven assists you in drawing up your monthly budget, tracking your expenses and setting your financial goals – all while earning points along the way.
