A Sportscene account application online is advisable if you wish to buy the latest fashion apparel on credit from one of the trendiest retail chains in South Africa.
Opening an account is easy because you can do it online or via their WhatsApp number. In this article, we outline how to do it so you can start shopping as soon as you’re approved.
Sportscene account application online
Sportscene is part of The Foschini Group (TFG). This means that TFG will process and approve your Sportscene account application online.
To apply for a Sportscene account online, visit the TFG Money Account application page here. Click “Choose a brand” to reveal a list of TFG brands and select Sportscene. Fill the rest of the online form with your details. Although you’re making a selection at this stage, you will still be able to shop at any of the other TFG brands using your account.
Once TFG approves your application, your account will remain open as long as you keep up with your monthly payments. Payment plans of either six or 12 months are available. The six-month plan is interest-free as long as your account is up to date, while the 12-month plan is interest-bearing but has lower instalments. Make sure that your payments reflect by the first of the month to avoid interest charges in the next month.
The Sportscene account application requirements include your basic information (names, ID number and cellphone number), employment and financial information (for affordability assessment), contacts, and references.
The online application interface will ask you to upload proof of income (at least one month, such as a pay slip) along with your bank statements. TFG will use these documents to validate your employment and financial information.
Before you submit your application, the interface will also ask you to accept the TFG account terms and conditions. Furthermore, you must confirm that you:
- Do not have any other pending applications for credit outstanding.
- Have not applied for debt review and are not under administration, sequestration or curatorship.
- Consent to TFG contacting any credit bureau to obtain your profile.
You will receive confirmation via SMS or email once you submit your application. If it is approved, you will receive further details of how to get your account card.
The Sportscene account application WhatsApp number is 060 944 4884. To apply, add this number as a contact on your cellphone, open a chat with the contact on WhatsApp, send your ID number and follow the prompts.
If you’re unable to apply online or via WhatsApp, you can still visit any Sportscene store or any other store within the TFG brand to apply in-store. Carry along your ID or driver’s licence and proof of income.
A store attendant will assist you with your application. If it is approved, you will receive an SMS asking you to visit the store again – this time to sign the final credit documents. Once you sign, the attendant will give you a validated TFG account card and you can start shopping straight away.
It is important to make your monthly payments to maintain a good credit record. For more information, contact TFG using the details below:
