Can somebody explain ‘Savings to Diamond’ to me? I just transferred R100k to a fixed deposit account, thinking I’ll be diamond then. Now I still have a ‘Savings to Diamond’ goal...

That’s a bit silly. No idea where they get the amount from though. Called bank but the “banker” was clueless as usual. Said I should call vitality money in the morning. I thought that if I have over R100k in savings I’m automatically diamond, provided that I have more than 80,000 points.

EDIT: Diamond now, was just a delay I guess.

Whats you percentage back on healthy shopping, clicks etc.

Just want to determine if the extra monthly fee for black vs platinum is worth it

Thanks
I am at 43.5%(pick and pay and dischem) on black card and Gold. Daimond would make it 50%

I know we gonna get miles instead of cash backs but does anyone know if there will be a cap on miles earn from healthy food and gear.

I also wonder if the miles earned at pick n pay will be close to instantaneous

1000 points to get R100 voucher. So that's a terrible change to the rewards program. At 125 minimum per goal, it takes maximum 8 goals to get R100 off. Previously it would take 4 goals max.

I agree. We are getting shafted by Discovery. If 1000 miles gives us a R100 voucher, then I can assume for rewards purposes for the most part that 10 miles = 1 rand. And previously, 100 points gave us the same R100 voucher.

Previously, one gameboard tile would give us at minimum 25 points (R25). Now, we get 100 miles (R10) per goal and minimum 50 miles (R5) per tile, so minimum 150 miles (R15). This is crap

And before the gameboard we were getting a smoothie every week, roughly R45 (one goal achieved).
