 Issue 36: April 2014




YEI’s aim is to provide South African over-60s with a one-stop online destination for savings, discounts, benefits and special offers as well as relevant, engaging and inspiring content. With discounts and benefits in mind, we bring you two new features (see below) highlighting super money savers, special offers, great deals and the latest in terms of discounts and benefits. YEI connects you with South African businesses that have seniors’ interests at heart, and who want to provide you with value and better deals.

YEI is passionate about customer service. But who can vouch for the services of a company better than a satisfied customer? A rave review for Tempest Car Hire has been received from a YEI member. Click here to read more.

As you may recall in the March e-Newsletter, YEI opened up a debate on the lack of pensioner discounts on MultiChoice packages. There has been a huge response. Cape Talk Radio also took up the issue with MultiChoice. You can read the outcome here.

Are you facing or have you ever faced forced retirement? YEI invites your opinion on this controversial subject. To join in the conversation, please click here.

Enjoy the April newsletter, and don’t forget to:

  • Encourage businesses in your area who offer a pensioner discount to enlist via the FREE business listing option;
  • Send your financial questions in to Personal Trust (no cost involved);
  • Keep up to date with all new happenings at YEI, by “liking” us on Facebook.
  • Comment on the articles – we love receiving your feedback!

YEI wishes you a fun-filled and blessed Easter. Take care on the roads. Until next month...

Kind regards,
Marilyn and the YEI Team
