3.  Take advantage of free money
Are you getting the best out of your Multiply discounts and rewards?

4. Save up for big purchases
In line with remaining committed to your financial plan so that you can achieve your financial goals, make sure that you plan for all big purchases.

5. Contribute to your savings regularly
Contributing a set amount to your savings, small as it may seem, will come in handy on a rainy day so that you don’t have to rely on credit. You can also automate this so that you do not have to worry about remembering to make the transfer each month.

What’s more? If you’re a Multiply member, you can save more without double the effort. Just save the cashbacks you earn at Dis-Chem, Pick n Pay and on the Multiply online shop in your Multiply Money savings wallet and earn interest on this money. Here’s more information on saving your cashbacks.
