A step ahead
I COMMEND Finweek for its stance against this cabal of banks. I have for many years attempted to minimise the ways in which these artists uplift monies from their customers with impunity. But I think you’ll find that Discovery is one step ahead of you, if you’re suggesting your medical aid premium can be debited to your credit card account. (Reference: Vic de Klerk‘s report headlined “Cut your bank charges yourself” – 21 August).
That would deprive their parent (in this case, FNB) of much-needed extra revenue, so Discovery stipulated that only cash or a debit to a bank account is acceptable to them as a means of recovering premiums. HOWARD CALLAGHAN
