Earn up to 100% back in eBucks on your RMB Private Bank Business Accounts

eBucks Rewards for Business allows you to earn eBucks as a reward for banking with RMB Private Bank.

As a qualifying RMB Private Bank Business customer, you can earn eBucks on your everyday business transactions using your RMB Private Bank Business Cheque Account and/or Business Credit Card. You can also earn eBucks on certain business banking fees, such as your FNB SpeedPoint® device rental fees and your online payment transaction fees.

Spend your eBucks; Save Rands!

Once you've earned eBucks, you can spend your eBucks at the eBucks Shop, at eBucks Travel, and at a range of in-store and online partners.


Quick overview

There are four steps you'll need to follow to earn eBucks.

  1. Register

    Earning eBucks on your RMB Private Bank Business Account(s) is free, but you have to be registered. An authorised representative of your business can register for eBucks Rewards for Business here.

  2. Qualify

    You'll need to meet the qualifying requirements that are specific to your Private Business Account(s).

  3. Move up a reward level

    Once you've qualified, it's time to start collecting points. Points are allocated based on how you bank with RMB Private Bank. The more points you collect, the higher your reward level. Your reward level is reviewed every month.

  4. Earn

    When you've qualified, and your reward level has been determined, you'll be ready to earn eBucks. The higher your reward level, the more eBucks you’ll earn for your business.

Remember: R1 = eB10.

Qualifying requirements

Before you can start earning eBucks, you must first meet the qualifying requirements.

To get going, you must:

    1. Hold a qualifying RMB Private Business Bank Cheque Account with a minimum monthly deposit of at least R10 000.

      OR

    2. Have a minimum monthly deposit over the last six months of R60 000.
  1. Perform a financial or non-financial transaction on your business account on the RMB Private Bank Banking App at least once a month
  2. Ensure that ALL your FirstRand Bank Accounts are active and in good standing.

Things to remember:

  • FirstRand Bank accounts include but are not limited to FNB, WesBank, RMB Private Bank and Ashburton accounts.
  • These requirements may change from time to time. We'll let you know when they do.
  • If you stop meeting any one of these requirements at any time, you won't qualify for eBucks Rewards for Business for the month.
  • An account that's active means that there's regular activity on the account or that the account is still being used for its original intended purpose.
  • “An account in good standing” means:
    • it isn't overdrawn, in arrears or in default; and
    • you haven't missed a premium; and
    • you aren't undergoing sequestration, business rescue, or collection or liquidation proceedings (excluding debt review proceedings).
  • Qualifying Business Cheque Accounts include RMB Private Bank Business Cheque Accounts, and RMB Private Bank Single Facilities.
  • If you have more than one of the above-mentioned Business Cheque Accounts, any deposit(s) made into the accounts will be considered towards the deposit amounts required for qualification.

Move up a reward level

After you've qualified, the second step is to move up a reward level.

Your reward level is determined by how many points you've collected in a calendar month. You collect points based on how you bank. The more points you collect, the higher your reward level.

Your reward level is reviewed monthly, which means that you may be on a different reward level every month.
