The Absa Rewards programme is a rewards programme designed to give you money back as you spend using your Absa card.
To earn cash back, all you need to do is to use your Absa card for point-of-sale and online purchases. You’ll earn cashback on all qualifying transactions.
In addition, you’ll also get access to great offers and promotions from Absa’s reward partners.
