How to donate your Rewards Points to a student

To get involved, all you need to do is:

  • Create a profile on the feenix.org website
  • Find the student you wish to fund
  • Nominate an amount you would like to pay using the slider
  • To view your donation, click "my Donation basket" or find another student, click "fund another student"
  • You will then be able to select your UCount Rewards as a payment option.
  • Need to enter the UCount Rewards Card for payment
  • Complete your donation by clicking "Check out"
  • Select "UCount" as the payment option
  • Your funds will go directly to your chosen student to help fund their studies
Pool Funding

You also have the option of donating your Rewards Points to a "pool fund" by selecting the Pool Funding option on your profile. The funds will be allocated in accordance with the BBBEE Socio Economic Development criteria.

You can redeem your Rewards Points online at feenix.org with your activated* UCount Rewards Card.

  • Enter your UCount Rewards Card details and your 3D SecureCode (OTP) on the order checkout page.
  • To make your payment, simply enter your UCount Rewards Card details and your 3D SecureCode (OTP) on the order checkout page.
  • For more information about 3D SecureCode (OTP), click here
  • You must have enough Rewards Points to pay for your purchase in full, as no part payments can be made.

*If you haven't yet activated your UCount Rewards Card, you can do this online, or by calling the UCount Rewards Contact Centre on 0860 UCOUNT (82 68 68).

*IMPORTANT NOTE: The option to part-pay using UCount Rewards Points and a credit card is not currently available. If you want to redeem your Rewards Points at feenix.org, you will need to have enough Rewards Points available to cover the total donation amount.

To view your Rewards Points balance, sign into your Rewards profile, go on the Standard Bank App, or SMS 'BALANCE' to 45224. SMS costs R1.
