Pride Factor Academy Adds Rewards Benefits for Registered Students


At a time when people countrywide, and particularly students and unemployed youth, are looking for ways to reduce costs and increase purchasing power, the Pride Factor Academy is pleased to add a FREE Rewards Programme to the many benefits enjoyed by anyone registering with the life-skills academy.

Rewards programme members qualify for discounts, earn points and receive coupons from thousands of retailers countrywide and also accumulate bonus points when they sign up for additional online courses and the game-changing interactive digital workshops now available from the academy.

“We’re proud to add a benefit that will help our members to reduce costs and learn how to manage their personal finances during the tough economic circumstances many of them are facing,” says Dene Botha, founder and MD of the Pride Factor Academy. “Having a well established and reputable operator like Mahala onboard to administer the loyalty programme on a nationwide basis is a real bonus.”

The easy-to-use Pride Factor Rewards are powered by Mahala, a registered financial services provider with a successful 16-year track record in the loyalty industry and a stable of more than 2,000 participating merchants, including retail giants Shoprite / Checkers and Dis-Chem.

“Teaching the youth the value of saving early in their lives is a very important lesson as it enables them to become responsible adults with real world knowledge when it comes to handling money,”

“Mahala kick-starts this learning process by offering learners access to MASSIVE savings and more, thereby teaching them that money is a tool to be used wisely. By collaborating with the Pride Factor Academy, we are setting down the building blocks for a successful life!”
