You can avoid certain charges simply by changing the way you transact with your account. Here, we give some low-cost alternatives to some common (and costly) transactions.

ATM Withdrawals

Some purchases just have to be made with cash but that doesn't have to mean a trip to the ATM. It's much cheaper to withdraw cash from the till at any of the Shoprite, Checkers, Usave, Boxer and Pick n Pay stores.

ATM Balance Enquiries

Everytime you check your balance at an ATM, it costs you R5,50. Checking your balance via internet banking, cellphone banking and our mobile app is free. Don't pay extra for services you actually don't need.

SMS Notifications

Whenever you receive an SMS notification regarding your account, it costs R0,50. That might not sound like a lot but it adds up. If you don't need these, go into your app's settings and turn them off. You can choose to receive in-app and email notifications instead. Both are free.You can also phone our call centre to change your notifications or use internet banking.
