Alumni

Tukkie credit card has been relaunched


The Tukkie Absa affinity credit card now has a new look and purpose. The new card, now a vibrant Tukkie-red, is still a normal Absa credit card (silver or gold) except that it offers alumni a convenient opportunity to show their appreciation for UP’s influence on their lives, careers and future, by giving back and investing in the future of UP without costing them a cent extra.  

A new Tukkie Card Fund has been established, and every time you swipe your Tukkie credit card, Absa will automatically donate a percentage of your annual spendings to the Tukkie Card Fund. The proceeds of this fund will go to deserving UP projects, such as upgrading the access to campus buildings for people with disabilities.

You will still pay nothing more than the normal banking costs for this credit card.

The Tukkie Card provides alumni with a convenient opportunity to show their appreciation for UP’s influence on their lives, careers and future by giving back and investing in the future of the University.  

Tukkie Card holders also stand a chance of winning either a R5 000 or a R3 000 Woolworths voucher in November this year by simply using their cards during the year.

You can change your existing Absa credit card to a Tukkie Card, or apply for a new Tukkie Card. Apply online on the Absa website (
www.absa.co.za) under >banking >credit cards >affinity credit card, or visit your nearest Absa branch and ask for an application form.

Alternatively, simply SMS your name, surname and ID number and the word “Tukkies” to 35435, and an agent will contact you (eg: Bob*Smith*8105055358081*Tukkies).
(Terms and conditions apply. SMSs charged at R3.00.)
