Here’s some good news for FNB customers looking to spend the eBucks they earn – the eBucks Shop is now accessible via the FNB mobile banking app.

This means that FNB customers can now make secure purchases on the eBucks shop, in-app, with the peace of mind provided by FNB Pay.

“We are very excited about offering this service to customers because it adds to the helpful capabilities available on the FNB app Under the eBucks Rewards tab, customers are able to see how they can earn more eBucks to achieve their objectives, view their complimentary slow lounge visits as well as register on the Entertainer app for free,” chief executive officer at eBucks Rewards, Johan Moolman, said in a statement.

“In the near future, customers can expect to access more meaningful and integrated innovations under the Bucks tab on the FNB app to meet a range of lifestyle needs including travel,” adds Moolman.

To access the eBucks shop from the FNB app you’ll need to have an existing eBucks account and the latest version of the FNB app. Our app is yet to update so we can’t see it but FNB says that under the eBucks Rewards tab, customers will find a Shop now icon.

Once you tap Shop now, follow the prompts on-screen to start shopping.

FNB says that it’s the first bank to offer the service from its app. As nice as that must be to say, we have to point out that eBucks is a business unit with First National Bank which is in turn a division of FirstRand Bank Limited.
