Standard Bank today unveiled its new ‘Achiever Banking Value Bundle’. The bank undertook a journey to revamp its Achiever Account offering iso as to keep abreast of the ever-changing requirements of its customers. At N$99 per month the Achiever Banking Value Bundle is packaged so that it meets the needs outlined by customers in one offering.
As part of the new bundled option, Achiever Banking customers enjoy unlimited electronic transactions per month, including debit card purchases, inter-account transfers, electronic payments, MyUpdates, Alert E-mails and SMS payment confirmations (received by the beneficiary), as well as three free ATM withdrawals per month, among others.
Also included in the bundle is an AchieverSave Account to promote a culture of saving and to protect customers and their families. The bank included funeral cover to the value of N$10 000, physical impairment cover up to N$57 000 (3 x gross monthly salary) and death cover up to N$57 000 (3 x gross monthly salary).
Standard Bank’s head of personal market segments, Rejoice Itembu, says: “Considering that more and more customers would like to do their banking from the palm of their hands, we have now fully availed Smart Device Financing to the Achiever Account offering. With this financing our Achiever customer will be able to apply for a facility that finances a smart phone or tablet, from which their lifestyle and banking convenience can further be enhanced.”
