When I think back to a few years ago, a song which plays ever familiarly in my mind was one that was played constantly on TV ad’s which went, “back to school, back to reality”.
With schools opening tomorrow, the reality of going back to school has certainly hit and for most scholars, or more accurately, their parents, that it’s time to do the routine “back to school” stationery shopping.
Now, instead of being a hassle or just an extra expense, especially during the financially-tight January, stationery shopping can be a breeze, especially if you bank with Absa.
An Absa client myself, imagine my delight upon receiving an SMS from the bank, telling me that with the Absa Rewards programme, I can gain instant rewards of 7% on my stationary purchases from stationery outlet, Waltons, simply by paying with my Absa Card.
Absa Rewards is a programme designed to reward you for banking with Absa. Not only does it literally put cash in your pocket with Cash Rewards, but it also gives you access to savings, discounts, special offers and convenience benefits.
Redeeming your Absa Rewards is simple and is redeemed in cash, not points, directly into your Absa account.
Now instead of worrying about how much you are spending on all that stationery shopping, as the shopper, you can now shop with a smile on your face, knowing that you are earning rewards in the process, enough to give yourself a post-shopping spoil for all your efforts.
Giving you even more reason to spend, simply by swiping your Absa card for purchases and gaining rewards, you automatically get entered in a competition and stand a chance to win R15 000 towards school fees.
Stationery shopping has never been this blissful and going back to school, never this great.
