It’s month end and you’ve just been paid. Things are manic at work and you haven’t had a chance to see which bills are being debited and which money is coming in. Three days later, you visit the bank for a statement only to realise a retailer you shopped at last week has deducted the amount off your account twice.

If this scenario sounds familiar, or if this is something that is likely to happen to you, then it would be wise to register for Standard Bank’s MyUpdates service. MyUpdates is a service that alerts you whenever a transaction occurs on your account. You’re able to keep track of all your debit orders and spot any suspicious activity on your account.

MyUpdates is available in two versions: MyUpdates and MyUpdates Maxi. For as little as R17 per month you can sign up for MyUpdates Maxi, giving you updates on all the transactions on your account. For no charge at all, sign up for the MyUpdates, on which you receive 12 SMSs a month regarding activity on your account.

To register for MyUpdates, call us on 0860 123 107, or visit a Standard Bank branch near you. In our quest to embrace South Africa’s many languages, we have also made sure that MyUpdates come in English, Afrikaans and Zulu.

So whether your uncle in Zeerust has sent you money, or your medical aid premium just went off your account, MyUpdates will keep you up-to-date these transactions. So what are you waiting for? Get MyUpdates today and be in control of your finances.
