Frequently Asked Questions

What is Incentiv8?

Incentiv8 is a rewards programme for university students that pays you out as a reward for completing your qualification.

The earlier into your qualification that you join Incentiv8, the exponentially higher your reward payout will be, so don't wait for later as your reward payout will never look as good as it does today!

Work hard. Earn hard! 

What does it cost and who can join?

If you have more than 1.5 years left before completing your qualification, you can choose an annual membership package of between R100 - R250.

If you have between 1 year - 1.5 years left before completing your qualification, you can only choose the R100 or R150 annual membership package.

If you have less than 12 months left before completing your qualification, you do not qualify to join (We we will not pay any invalid claims and if you join Incentiv8 within the final 12 months of your qualification, your reward payout and all past payments will be forfieted as a result of misrepresentation)

Earn R20 for each friend you invite

How is the reward payout amount calculated?

The payout amount varies depending on the amount of time you still have to study, ie- the shorter the time left, the lower the payout.

You simply select your expected completion date when you sign up and your payout is calculated based on that time frame and the expected graduation rate.

What happens if I take longer than expected to complete my qualification?

No problem! Your payout reward will be paid to you as long as you complete your qualification, no matter how long that takes.
