The Visa Discovery credit card is your key to unlocking a world of discounts and savings. This credit card provides you with the benefits of a credit card and more than you could ever imagine. Imagine getting discounts and earning points merely by swiping your card in one of 24 million outlets or cash machines globally!
Well you do not have to imagine any more, if you are a Discovery Health member and you have signed up for their Vitality programme, you can start saving and being rewarded today. What is even better is that the healthier you are, the more rewards you can receive. So now you have a reason (excuse) to actually go to the gym as you get rewards based on your Vitality status, your VitalityDrive TM status, or both. And to top it all off, in addition to getting discounts and rewards, you can get cash back – for example, PicknPay offers Vitality Health/Vitality Drive members the opportunity to get as much as 10% cash back.
This concept has revolutionised the insurance industry in South Africa as Discovery has taken the grudge out of these purchases by means of the Visa Discovery credit card, as well as other offerings. They have realised that consumers no longer want to be told what they want but rather have their desire and needs heard. It is because of this that Vitality have developed products that their consumers actually want to incorporate into their lives. Who would have thought that an insurance company would think like that?
The best thing about all of this is that you can manage your account online and even apply online. No longer will you have to sit for hours in a store trying to figure out which forms are for which product and then having the store assistance lose your application all together. Vitality has developed three application processes which you can choose from. Firstly you can call the call centre at 0860 11 CARD (2273) and complete your application over the phone. Alternatively you can request that a qualified employee call you back by simply clicking a button on their website at www.discovery.co.za. Should however prefer to fill in the information yourself and fax it through to them, you can do this as well by downloading their application forms online and then faxing them to 011 539 2509. Should you want to email the application rather than one of the above mentioned application processes, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. It really is that simple to get connected to a world of reward and privileges.
After reading the above, I hope you are now thinking to yourself -What exactly can I get if I join? Well here it goes (the list is quite long so just bear with me):
- Shop and Save: This means that in the selected partner stores (all 24 million of them), you are entitled to discounts depending on your status at Discovery. For example, Blue members (the lowest category members) are offered a 10% discount. However should you be a Diamond member whereby you can earn up to 20% cash refunds. Shopping partners include: Stuttafords, PicknPay, Altech Autopage, Exclusive Books, and Total Sports. This means that there is a wide range of discounts to be had. The only downfall is that your maximum discountable spend at a partner store is limited to 30% of your total Discovery Card spend in a statement period. Your cash back is also calculated on a limit of R10 000 spend at the partner stores. But these seem minor in comparison to the rewards that they have to offer you.
- Travel and Save: If you use one of the Discovery Card travel partners you can not only receive free travel insurance, but you can also obtain cash back as well as the lowest advertised tour rates available. This is based on you Vitality status with Diamond status members receiving up to 22% off of their purchases with the travel partners.
All in all, Vitality is trying to show South African’s that it actually pays to be healthy and the Visa Discovery Credit Card is further facilitating this notion. So why not become part of a new and better lifestyle and reap the rewards as you go.
