But I’m going to wait a month before I do, I have learned not to look a gift horse in the mouth when it comes to banking…
After I blogged yesterday about how upset I was about what I was paying Absa every month, they got hold of me on Twitter and asked how they could help.
This morning I got a call from a very sweet young lady who offered me a package deal that she promises will cost me just R79 a month- all inclusive- although I will start paying for ATM withdrawals after the 5th one- which is fine since I almost never do that anyway.
She also apologised that I had had to throw my toys out the cot before I got offered a far more cost effective package.
When I asked why it wasn’t standard across the board anyway, she said that when they implemented it last year they started calling people to offer it to them but people don’t answer “private number” calls!
I had to laugh as I am guilty of that too.
So, as of the end of this week- she said she’d put a rush on it- I will be saving a lot of money because I won’t be paying for debit orders, internal transactions, internet banking or card payments when I shop.
If you’re an Absa client, phone them or go and see them and get your charges sorted out too!
