Sportscene sells casual and athletic clothing for men, women, and children. Accessories such as caps, face masks, backpacks, socks, and undergarments are also available at the store. Watches and other jewelry can also be purchased at Sportscene.

Sportscene offers some of the world’s most well-known brands. With a Sportscene account, you may shop for Jordan, Adidas, Puma, The North Face, Crocs, Kangol, and more brands.

A Sportscene account does not require its holder to solely shop at Sportscene stores. Any TFG partner retailer accepts credit purchases made with the Sportscene account. This allows account holders to shop for products that are not available at Sportscene such as appliances, furniture, and more, in addition to clothing.

The Sportscene account is a flexible account with numerous applications. Before you get your Sportscene account, have a look at the information below to learn more about what it is and how it works.

Sportscene account summary

A Sportscene account is a store credit card that can be used to make purchases at any Sportscene store in South Africa. Any TFG partner store in South Africa accepts the Sportscene account. Sportscene account subscribers can use their account at over 900 TFG locations around the country.

The account comes with R1,500.00 worth of designer vouchers. These coupons can be claimed in parts and redeemed for a specific amount of money. The vouchers can be used at any Sportscene location as well as its partner locations.

The account comes with 2 budget options to choose from. Budgets include that of 6 months and that of 12 months. The 6 months budget plan doesn’t charge interest on purchases that are made with the account. The 12 months budget bears interest on all purchases made with the account.

The account is bundled with the My TFG rewards program when it is opened. Account-holders can save money on certain purchases, receive prizes in the form of vouchers, and earn customized discounts through the My TFG rewards program. 

Account-holders can safeguard the credit they have on their account through customer protection insurance, which is offered to all account holders. The cover is optional and covers loss of income, permanent disability, temporary disability, and death.

How the Sportscene account works

An application is required to begin using the Sportscene account. The account is for persons above the age of 18 who have a source of income. Sportscene will issue the applicant a card that they can use to make payments in-store once their credit has been authorized.

Funds will be allocated to the account, which can be utilized at any Sportscene location or at Sportscene partner locations. The account can also be used to make online purchases through the Sportscene or TFG websites.

The account holder must pick between a 6-month or 12-month budget plan while making purchases with the account. The amount of payments due will be determined by the budget plan chosen. Since the 12 month budget plan includes interest, the total amount due is usually higher than the 6 month budget plan.

The amount owed will also include the account’s monthly service fee, which will be levied as long as the account is active. Credit will be available to make subsequent purchases with the account after part or all of the credit spent has been repaid as it is a revolving credit account.

The account holder can ask for a temporary credit increase if they want to make purchases that exceed their credit limit. When purchasing items that exceed the credit limit, a temporary credit boost is available to make checkout possible. Sportscene has the ability to increase the credit limit. Account-holders can also request an increase in credit.

Advantages of the Sportscene account

  • The account comes with R1500.00 vouchers when opening the account.
  • There is interest-free credit available. This is offered through the 6 months budget plan.

  • There are special offers available to account holders including vouchers through the My TFG rewards program.
