South African Airways and Nedbank Launch SAA Voyager Cheque Card
If you think rising fuel costs and a tough economy have ruined your big plans to travel and see the world, South African Airways and Nedbank say you should think again.
South African Airways and Nedbank have just launched the new SAA Voyager Cheque Card – the first cheque card in the world that allows users to earn air miles, and makes redeeming them quicker, easier and more rewarding than ever before.
The SAA Voyager Cheque Card is Nedbank’s response to growing demands from South Africans from all walks of life for a transactional card that allows them to earn SAA Voyager Miles, so that they can realise their travel aspirations. All of this without having to qualify for, or use a credit card.
In addition to being able to redeem Voyager Miles for flights, upgrades and various travel-related expenses, SAA Voyager Premium cardholders enjoy an enhanced travel experience thanks to preferential check-in and lounge access when flying on SAA-operated flights or SAA marketing flights where Mango is the carrier.
Best of all, and similar to the existing SAA Voyager Credit Cards, as an SAA Voyager Cheque Card holder, you don’t have to take that trip of a lifetime alone.
Apart from the fastest miles earning rate in South Africa with steady accumulation on daily spend, there are many opportunities to earn bonus miles including 2,500 miles on signing up to the programme, double miles on eligible spend for the first month after the account has been opened, bonus miles when reaching spend thresholds, and additional miles when paying for an SAA flight with your SAA Voyager Card.
The Voyager Premium and Gold Credit cards will also be relaunched with the introduction of a stunningly unique card design, adding more exciting benefits such as preferential discounted flights on SAA operated flights and spend incentives.
Nedbank has simplified the card application process as well. You can apply online for your SAA Voyager Card or at any Nedbank branch.
The SAA Voyager Cheque Card can also be added to select Nedbank transactional accounts and is available to existing and new clients.
