One of the most popular accounts for young men and women is Relay Jeans. The account entitles account holders to shop at any Relay Jeans location in South Africa. The account can be used to buy G Star Raw, Levi’s Relay Jeans, and other brands.
The Foschini Group (TFG), which owns over 20 brand networks in South Africa, owns Relay Jeans. Since Relay Jeans is part of TFG, you can use your Relay Jeans account to shop at any TFG-affiliated store in South Africa.
The account includes vouchers that can be redeemed at TFG partner stores as well as Relay Jeans locations. These vouchers can be used on a variety of purchases and are divided into spending categories.
The Relay Jeans account can be used to make online purchases at any of TFG’s online stores, including Relay Jeans’. The account can also be used online at TFG-affiliated retailers.
Relay Jeans is a one-of-a-kind account that comes with a slew of privileges. Let’s have a look at the Relay Jeans account before we get into the details of how it works.
Relay Jeans Account Summary
The Relay Jeans account is a store account that can be used at more than 900 TFG affiliated stores and 22 store brands throughout South Africa. There is no minimum income requirement for this account. This means that anyone with a source of income is eligible to open an account. The account comes with R1500.00 in vouchers that can be redeemed at any TFG store. Because the account’s vouchers come with unique spending rules that are time-bound, they can only be claimed in parts. Vouchers can be claimed for a period of six months.
A membership to the myTFG rewards program is included with every Relay Jeans account. After your Relay Jeans account has been approved, you will be automatically enrolled in the myTFG rewards program. My TFG rewards give members the opportunity to save instantly when making purchases with the Relay Jeans account.
When making purchases with the Relay Jeans account, you may pick between two alternative budget options. The first budget is a 6-month interest-free repayment option. Holders of a 6-month budget account only pay for the credit they utilize. The 12-month budget, which includes interest, is the second budget option.
The customer protection insurance that comes with a Relay Jeans account is optional. One can select the cover that he or she requires. Death, permanent disability, temporary disability, and loss of income are all covered. If the account holder is involved in an insured incident, the Relay Jeans account will be kept open for a term agreed upon by the account holder and the insurer.
How the Relay Jeans Account Works
The Relay Jeans account can be applied for either online on the Relay Jeans website or in-person at any Relay Jeans location across the country. Anyone with a source of income, such as students on allowances, employees, and others, can apply for the account. After approval, the account will be activated, and a card will be mailed to the applicant’s address.
After the account has been approved, funds will be allocated to the Relay Jeans account. The amount of credit given to the account will be determined by the applicant’s risk profile. As a result, those with bad credit may have a low credit limit even if they earn a lot of money, or they may not be accepted at all.
The Relay Jeans account comes with R1,500.00 worth of shopping vouchers. These vouchers can be used at any Relay Jeans location or any TFG-affiliated location. The account can be used at any of the 22 TFG brand stores, including Relay Jeans.
The account has a credit limit, which must be adhered to at all times. When shopping for items that exceed the credit limit, an account holder can apply for a temporary credit increase. In addition, the account holder can request a credit increase, which will be based on the account holder’s risk profile.
The account holder can apply for additional cards that can be used by family or friends from Relay Jeans. The main account holder will be responsible for repaying the money used on the Relay Jeans account. The amount payable, however, will be determined by the account holder’s budget.
After making account repayments, the money is immediately issued to the account holder so that he or she can make additional purchases. This is due to the fact that the Relay Jeans account is a revolving store credit account, which means that you don’t have to apply for an account every time you wish to purchase at Relay Jeans or its partner stores.
