FNB adds Acer laptops, Galaxy Pocket
FNB has refreshed the range of smart devices being offered to clients at a reduced price to include the Samsung Galaxy Pocket. It has also added a range of Acer laptops to its offering.
FNB is providing new and existing clients with smartphones, tablets, Windows laptops and MacBooks at reduced prices with a 24 month payment option with no interest, fees or additional charges. By lowering the cost of these devices, more South Africans now have access to mobile and digital banking technology, including FNB’s Banking App.
Ilse Smuts, Head of Marketing at FNB’s Core Banking Services said that “we have added to our range of smart device offerings. There has been considerable uptake by new and existing clients and we believe that our offering puts FNB at the forefront of digital change for the banking industry”. In addition to the wide range of devices available, including the popular Samsung Galaxy S3, BlackBerry Curve 9380, new Apple iPad and MacBook Air, FNB has now added the Samsung Galaxy Pocket as well as Acer laptops with Windows.
“Since adding the various devices to our offering we have seen a lift in demand for all devices as people are spoilt for choice. Our aim is to make access to electronic banking faster and easier and it’s great to see consumers adapting to the shift from traditional to digital banking,” adds Smuts.
The bank’s successful drive towards these digital platforms is echoed in its digital popularity. The devices can also be purchased online and through the new dotFNB stores. These stores enable more convenient digital banking, that matches the changing technological environment.
“Our move to digital has been welcomed by many and we will continue to add new platforms as our drive to digital and innovative banking is growing. In addition, we will incorporate and encourage new and existing customers to use our platforms as the drive to innovation and technology increases,” concludes Smuts.
