FNB is giving some of its account holders free extra data, and students will also get free KFC if they open accounts.

But there are a couple of T&Cs: The R30 KFC voucher can only be redeemed by students when they open an FNB Easy Account - and they have to download the banking app. Also, it's a once-off. This promotion runs until the end of March.

The free additional data is available to Easy Account customers, but only on Wednesdays, and as long as your purchase is made on the app. So for example, if you buy 100MB data via the banking app, the bank will give you an additional 100MB. 

The promotion is part of FNB's "Akulaleki Wednesday" campaign,  which runs until July 1.

The offer is ideal for students

The Easy account is aimed at students about to embark on their first year of tertiary studies, FNB's CEO of Easy segment, Philani Potwana says.

"As a student coming into a new environment, you need all the help you can get," he says. "We’ve all experienced it, money is critical at this stage in your life and you need to find helpful ways to stretch your buck with rewards that matter."
