Banking apps are usually only good for buying data on-the-go and hurting your feelings by showing receipts for every thoughtless swipe you’ve ever done. But FNB has just added a health rewards system to their app which is going to give you discounts for gym, spas, workout gear, healthy food, and even healthcare. And it’s free!
The nav-igate section of the FNB app is designed to help you make good money decisions. Here you’ll find tips on buying and selling a house, the option to renew your license disc of your car, your credit status, and now, their wellness rewards system.
One of the most exciting features is the option to queue jump when getting your prescriptions from the pharmacy. Now you can take a photo of your prescription, upload it through the app, and you’ll get notified when it’s ready for collection within two hours. It’s not uncommon to walk into Dis-Chem for one item and leave with so many packets you need someone to help you carry them to the car, so the less time we spend in there the better.
Walk into dis-chem to buy lip ice, walk out carrying bags of toiletries and medicine I never needed. It’s a set up there ?

The Wellness section also has hella discounts, both permanent and ones that change every month. The permanent perks include money off genetic testing, which can give you some really useful insights into your health, weight, and sports performance. You can also use your eBucks to pay for some of the services, so essentially could have a spa-day for free!

Besides all the sweet discounts you can also take their wellness and health quizzes, which help you to set goals and give you a general health rating. There aren’t any rewards for scoring high on the nutrition quiz yet, but they do call you a ‘Super Star’ if you get higher than 70% which is good for the ol’ self-esteem.
