You have to pay to use your debit/atm card in S. Africa! I am glad to be an American.

i dont really think that its the correct time for banks advertising, no matter what the subject of the ad was, the world is still suffering the scars of the world crisis and its not healed yet, and i dont know what do the banks want when they advertise for the services they offer, more troubles? or is it like they want more people to fall in their traps and suffer the debts and the payments? its not right at all.

dude this makes absolutely no sense! the more money available the more spending occurs and thus GDP increases, its basic economics!
the only way out of a recession is to induce speding and thats the most difficult thing to do because of inflation, and pretty much forces the government into restrictive monetary and fiscal policies which will reduce the interset rate and taxation!
plus its a business they run and its not their job to think about the individual on the street, if you have to much debt dont take out more debt to cover it that makes no sense, we need individuals to start thinking for them selves.

I stand to correct all the above ignorant people, a youth account is a savings account and does not = debt. However, any criticism is accounted for since it is coming from people who do not understand the South African market. This advert is exactly on point in my view, since it hits home to the target market. Big ups team!
