Decided to go about applying for an SAA Voyager credit card (cant write about something you don't have!). The SAA Voyager credit card applications work through the Nedbank website.
I didn't like it, but they wanted to collect my race for statistical purposes. Funny thing was that every time I tried to click "white" it reset to "black"... this only happens in Firefox, in Internet Explorer it works properly. Other Firefox problems are that:
the sizes of the pop-up windows aren't opened wide enough.
one of the screens has a really irritating habit of jumping up after inputting items.
I eventually gave up on trying to use Firefox - too difficult. I'd like it if they at least warn at the start to use Internet Explorer.
Their first question to me was am I currently an SAA Voyager member (jip, I am) - guess they use this to link the points up.
Unlike the Kulula credit card and the Virgin Money credit card, the SAA Voyager credit card offers options:
The Classic is the lowest cost version (R300 per annum), so I chose it.
To qualify for the SAA Voyager Classic credit card you need to:
earn over R36,000 a year
be a resident of the Republic of South Africa
be over 21 years old (or over 18 if married)
The application site has a full list of titles from which to choose, including "Admiral", "His Royal Highness" and "Rabbi"...it's good to see all bases are covered.
