FNB Connect says it is giving away millions of gigabytes of data to reward customers who use the bank’s integrated digital and telco ecosystem over the festive season period, starting from 1 November 2017 through to the end of January 2018.
FNB Connect’s data rewards are focused on encouraging FNB customers to use digital channels and the right banking products, the company said.
As an example, a monthly reward of 1 gigabyte (GB) is given each month to any customer that makes a financial transaction on the FNB App.
Large data rewards are given for taking up any of the newly launched FNB ConeXis smartphone deals or taking up qualifying FNB banking products. Each FNB customer can get up to 160 gigabytes (GB) of data.
The data incentives can only be used on the FNB Connect network and will be free of charge for customers, the financial services company said. It will be over and above the eBucks rewards that qualifying FNB customers get for using the bank’s digital ecosystem and other eligible products.
“Banking via the FNB App has a number of benefits for our customers, including exercising full control over the wide range of banking and telco services while containing costs. Through the FNB App, Connect customers can manage their SIMs as well as the usage of data, voice and sms from a single digital platform,” said Dr Christoph Nieuwoudt, CEO of FNB Consumer.
This is a major convenience for individuals or families with multiple SIMs to not just track spend, but set auto top-ups and maximum spend limits for each SIM.”
In September, FNB Connect introduced the latest ConeXis X2 and A2 smartphones with competitive packages to advance the bank’s digital migration strategy.
