Sometimes, it can seem as if life is simply a series of admin tasks, a list of ‘things-to-do’. Running errands, paying bills, standing in queues… Thrilling stuff.

Yup, ‘life admin’ is kind of like flossing your teeth. Even if you’re not in the mood, you’ve just got to do it.

Paying your utility bills is one of these tasks, and while it’s not the most exciting thing ever, it can be even more of a drudge when you have to stand in a queue, or drive around to draw cash.

So, here’s a little something to add some sunshine to the gloom: Virgin Money spoke to the folks at City of Johannesburg, and City of Tshwane, and now they’re cool with you paying your water and lights bills at the municipal offices using your Virgin Money Credit Card! Score.

Now, whenever you see the EasyPay sign in shops, you can use your credit card to pay for your water and lights.

Not only is it more convenient, but it’s safer too.

Maybe you already know this, but this seems like a good time to remind you anyway: using your card is just like using cash, because if you settle your credit card account within 55 days*, you pay no interest at all. (Yes, you read that right.)

So, it turns out that your credit card can actually be a great money management and ‘life admin’ tool: apart from now being able to pay your municipal bills with it, it means convenience and safety when paying online, as well as peace-of-mind with free lost card protection.

If you have any questions, or want to know more about Virgin Money credit cards, pop on over to, or call 0861 822 273.
