FNB has quietly launched a free health rewards programme in their banking app that gives you discounts at spas, gyms, healthy food delivery services and genetic testing.

Called ‘nav» Wellness’, it is a free service from FNB. The app allows customers to set and track their health goals after completing a wellness questionnaire. However you don't need to achieve the goals to get the discounts.  

There are monthly and permanent specials, which FNB hopes will keep customers coming back to the app to see regularly.

In addition to the discounts, FNB bankers will also be able to cut the prescriptions queue at Dis-Chem. Using the app, customers can order medicine from their nearest Dis-Chem, and get notified when it is ready for collection. FNB hopes to turn this into a home delivery service

The new programme is part of the bank’s plan to shift from being ‘just a bank’ to becoming a services-based operator. Recently, FNB announced that eBucks members can now book domestic and international flights on the FNB app.

“The retail banking sector is heating up with several new banks coming in to make it a very competitive space. It’s important for us to stand out in this environment,” said Raj Makanjee, FNB Retail Chief Executive.
