FNB, the bank which brought official Paypal support to South Africa. The first bank to have its own app, and now the first bank to offer you an iPad 2 at an extremely reduced price, to use that app on.
Starting today, FNB Gold and Platinum cheque account holders can order a 16Gb wifi + 3G iPad 2 for a very impressive R4800. Thats a saving of R899! It gets better, there is also the option to pay for the device over a 24 month period with zero interest.
That works out to an incredible R200 a month, which can be debited straight for your account every month. At that price how can you say no?
Interested? If you are an FNB cheque account holder, all you have to do is SMS the word “Tablet” to 32812. Its that simple.
Also on offer are a Blackberry and various Android devices with similar incredible savings.
Is an R899 saving on an iPad 2 going to make you consider changing banks? Let us know in the comments section.
Update: Michael Jordaan,the CEO of FNB, stated on twitter today that FNB are receiving applications for 2 iPads/Smartphones a minute. That is a incredible amount, it also explains the delays some are experiencing when it comes to being contacted after their SMS’. In this case, patience is very much a virtue.
Update 2: Looks like FNB have sneakily increased the monthly price of the iPad by R29 (Now R229/month) and added a R120 delivery fee. Please be aware of this if you are still interested in taking advantage of this offer.
