UCount Rewards members can earn more with Goals and Gains on the Standard Bank Banking App

Standard Bank AGM

Johannesburg, 20 April 2022: Standard Bank’s UCount Rewards members can get the best out of their participation in this leading rewards programme by using the amplified UCount Rewards tile on the Standard Bank Banking App. The user-friendly platform now includes a feature that allows members to easily complete a goal and get a gain, offering exciting and significant rewards to members. 

Fayelizabeth Foster, Head of Loyalty and Rewards at Standard Bank, says UCount Rewards members must ensure that they have downloaded the UCount Rewards tile from the Add-On Store on the Standard Bank Banking App so that they can benefit from all its value-added functions. 

The tile on the Standard Bank banking app allows UCount Rewards members to manage their profiles by updating their contact details and viewing their Rewards Tier Level and balance. It provides them with the convenience of managing their UCount Rewards cards – from activating a new card and setting a PIN through to suspending a lost card and setting a 3D secure PIN for online e-commerce transactions. In addition, it makes it easy for members to redeem their Rewards Points, shop at the Travel Mall and find Rewards Retailers and Caltex garages. 

Goals and Gains

“UCount Rewards members can benefit even more through the Goals and Gains offering when they follow a few simple steps on the app and streamline their spending behaviour,” says Foster. 

“Goals and Gains offers members challenges to earn exciting new rewards when they activate the UCount Rewards tile on the Standard Bank Banking App. When they use this platform, they will receive enticing opportunities to earn Bonus Rewards Points, vouchers and coupons by reaching set rewards goals. New Goals are made available every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month and you will have 14 days to complete them, to get your Gain. The Goals could be from spending a certain amount, by a certain date, at a participating Rewards Retailer like Dis-Chem to buying prepaid airtime and data in the Standard Bank Banking app.”

The incentive for pursuing goals on the app and tracking progress in realising gains is clear. The method is also simple in that regular household spending can be directed to UCount Rewards Retailers to rack up more rewards. 

“UCount Rewards members can now get up to 400* Rewards Points in Tier Rewards when they participate in Goals and Gains on the UCount Rewards in-app platform,” says Foster.  

The UCount Rewards Programme is based on 5 Tier Levels, which implies that members elevate their Tier Level when they use more Standard Bank products and services and earn more Rewards Points from qualifying purchases.

“Standard Bank customers who are not UCount Rewards Programme members yet can join the popular programme on the Standard Bank Banking app, via the Contact Centre on 0860 82 68 68, on the UCount Rewards website, or in branch to take advantage of the outstanding offering,” says Foster. “Members can earn Rewards Points every time they swipe their qualifying Standard Bank personal Cheque, Credit or Debit cards and earn even more Rewards Points when they spend at Participating Rewards Retailers like Makro, Game, Hirsch’s and Dis-Chem.

“UCount Rewards helps customers to save since they can redeem their Rewards Points at these Rewards Retailers in time. Our new Goals and Gains app feature enhance the significant benefits of the programme since it drives customers to reach their financial goals. Download the Standard Bank Banking App from the App Store, Google Play Store or Huawei Store today and activate and use the UCount Rewards tile on the app to reap more benefits”
