Note: The R4 000 Live Better discount will be deducted automatically when you pay.

Your card will automatically be activated for online shopping, but your default limit is set at R0. You won’t be able to do online shopping with a R0 limit, so if you haven't already increased your limit, remember to do so before you get started by using the Capitec banking app or visiting a Capitec branch.

Over 50 000 students globally have already benefitted from the opportunity to:

  • Earn a certificate from a top-tier university 
  • Enjoy a personalised, people-mediated online learning experience 
  • Gain verifiable and relevant competencies and skills

Only courses that you buy through the GetSmarter widget on our app using your Capitec card will be eligible for the R4 000 fee reduction.

  • The fee reduction only applies to short courses bought on our app through the GetSmarter widget; no fee reduction shall be applied for purchases directly from the GetSmarter website 
  • This fee reduction is only applicable to GetSmarter courses from South African universities
  • You must pay the reduced course fee in full upon registration
