How to earn and redeem Rewards Points

More to spend on what you want, whenever you pay for what you need. That's UCount Rewards* in a nutshell.

Once you're registered, buying anything from groceries or petrol to airline tickets with your Standard Bank Debit, Cheque or Credit card earns you Rewards Points. You can then redeem them for all sorts of goodies at all sorts of places with your UCount Rewards Card.

How To Earn Rewards Points
  • Based on your monthly banking activity and the number of Standard Bank products and services you use every month; you automatically get Tiering Points which puts you into one of five Tiering Levels. The more products and services you use, the higher your Tier Level will be – and the more Rewards Points you will earn from your purchases using you Standard Bank Debit, Cheque or Credit cards.
  • Calculate your points: You can quickly work out where and how to earn points by trying out our Rewards Points calculator.
  • Credit card swipes: These earn you the most points. But you also rack up points using your Banking App or Internet Banking for payments, switching to e-statements or updating your personal information.
  • Social rewards: If you link your Twitter account to UCount Rewards, you can earn points for using the #UCount hashtag to tweet about the awesome rewards you're getting.
How To Redeem Your Points
  • Get started: Activate your UCount Rewards Card so you can redeem your points at places like Dis-Chem and Makro, while filling up your tank at Caltex garages.
  • You can also visit our Online Redemption portal to buy vouchers and more.
  • Travel: If adventure's what you're after, your points can be redeemed on – or contribute towards – exclusive deals at the UCount Rewards Travel Mall (the points can also be used at Bidvest Premier Airport Lounges, and can be converted to SAA voyager miles).
  • Donate to charity: Should spoiling yourself and the family ever get too much, you can always donate your points to charity.
