Leading SA financial institution FNB expands edtech offering

Jun 18, 2021 | Education, News, Partnerships

First National Bank has announced a new partnership with leading global edtech company Snapplify to make it even easier and more affordable for FNB customers to access e-textbooks.  Widely known for its innovative banking approach, the award-winning financial institution provides services to millions of customers across South Africa.

The bank’s eBucks rewards programme has been industry leading, revolutionising financial services and enabling FNB customers to access additional services, from fashion to fuel, with the eBucks they’ve earned. Now, using eBucks, parents, students and educators can purchase a Snapplify Book Bundle voucher and select curriculum-aligned e-textbooks from leading local and international educational publishers.

Additionally, FNB is further discounting Snapplify Book Bundle vouchers by up to 40%, meaning eBucks customers are saving even more on digital textbooks when they buy Snapplify vouchers through FNB. Johan Moolman, eBucks Rewards CEO says, ‘This collaboration comes at a crucial time when many of our customers and their families rely on digital solutions to access educational content. Whether it’s prescribed textbooks or supplementary study material, our customers will now have access to quality and affordable e-learning resources using eBucks.’

Snapplify Book Bundle is a simple, quick and affordable way to buy e-textbooks. Users can set their curriculum, grade and subject choices, then choose top-quality, up-to-date e-textbooks from leading educational publishers. With Book Bundle vouchers bought using eBucks, FNB customers can instantly access books anywhere, anytime and on any device (even offline). Using the built-in academic tools in Snapplify’s reader app (like searching within books, or adding notes and highlights), students can take their learning to the next level.

‘As more and more schools and students embrace remote and blended learning, Snapplify’s ability to provide first-rate digital education tools and top-quality content is a source of pride and inspiration for our team,’ said Wesley Lynch, Snapplify’s CEO. ‘Snapplify Book Bundle is another way we’re making ebooks and e-learning more accessible, and we’re excited to have FNB on board as we work to empower more students with the resources they need to succeed,’ Lynch continued.
