Discovery Miles will become even more rewarding in 2020


We’re excited to let you know that your banking will become even more rewarding in 2020 when we introduce new ways for you to earn and spend your Discovery Miles.

Here’s what you have to look forward to in the new year.

All the ways you can earn Discovery Miles

Earn hundreds of Discovery Miles for achieving your Vitality Active Rewards goals

From mid-January 2020, you can earn hundreds of Discovery Miles through Vitality Active Rewards when you reach your exercise, drive and money goals. Plus, you’ll earn a gameboard play for reaching each goal, and the chance to earn even more Discovery Miles.

If you have Vitality Health, Vitality Drive and Vitality Money, you can earn the maximum of 300 Discovery Miles and a bonus play for achieving all three Vitality Active Rewards goals!

Earn Discovery Miles when you spend at our HealthyLiving partners

From early 2020, your monthly Vitality Money and Vitality Health cash back will be paid to you in Discovery Miles, this includes spending on HealthyFood, HealthyCare and HealthyGear purchases, plus fuel and Uber rides. We’ll pay your rewards into your Discovery Miles account instead of your Vitality Savings Account. Your Vitality Savings Account and balance will remain available to you to continue to grow your savings.

Keep an eye on your inbox and we’ll let you know when your cash back will be paid to you in Discovery Miles.

Earn Discovery Miles for your everyday credit card spend

Remember that you also earn up to 1 Discovery Mile for every R15 you spend on qualifying purchases every time you shop in-store or online with your Discovery Card. This depends on whether you have a credit card only or a full banking suite, your Discovery Card colour, and your Vitality Money status.

You’ll continue to receive cash back for your other Vitality rewards

Your Vitality Health cash back will still be paid into your nominated bank account for the following rewards and will not be paid out to you as Discovery Miles:

  • Dream Destinations, which includes Contiki, Royal Caribbean International and World Leisure Holidays
  • The Vitality Money gym booster benefit (which includes the Vitality Health gym benefit)
  • Fuel (the Vitality Drive portion only)
  • The Vitality Active Rewards with iPhone benefit (which will continue to be paid into your Discovery Bank credit facility)

You’ll continue to receive your upfront Uber discount from Vitality Drive at the time of booking your ride.
