Once A Week Cape Town, South Africa | What You Need To Know About The FNB Aspire Account
FNB Aspire Account, relaunched in 2021 from FNB Gold, is the recommended account for middle-income earners with the lowest cost and most value. This is according to the newly issued 2022 Bank Charges Report by Solidarity.
FNB's FNB Aspire account is, according to the research, the best account for middle-income banking requirements. Similar to the other accounts in this category, this is a packaged account with a fixed monthly fee that includes a number of free transactions. FNB Aspire is the clear winner in the middle-income bracket, as all transactions are covered in the R99 monthly fee.
Who is intended?
The FNB Aspire account is a packaged product intended at those with incomes between R180,001 and R450,001. According to the bank, the Aspire account has been modified so that consumers may obtain greater value from their transactional banking.
For only R99 per month, you receive unlimited debit orders, free [email protected], free prepaid purchases on the FNB App, and free cash withdrawals and deposits of up to R3 000. However, Gwerengwe notes that despite the low monthly account charge of R99, clients receive greater value from their combined eBucks earned and FNB Connect rewards.
FNB Aspire clients will also get access to a number of zero-rated transactions, such as third-party payments, InContact SMSes, 24/7 secure chat, and [email protected] "These minute charges may seem little, but they pile up over the course of the month," Gwerengwe explains. For instance, the transaction notification cost of 40 cents that competing banks impose is modest at first appearance, but for a client with eight debit orders, eight withdrawals, and fourteen card swipes, this soon adds up to an additional R12 each month.
FNB Aspire clients also enjoy the following additional perks and benefits:
- Two free visits to the SLOW Lounge when you book with eBucks Travel.
- 500MB data, 30 phone minutes, and 30 SMS per month on FNB Connect plus an additional 500MB data if you add R100 or more to your FNB Connect SIM throughout the month.
- Spend and save with FNB and eBucks; if you match the conditions, you might receive an R1,500 voucher for a new pair of shoes each year.
