U can get a pay as you use bank account for R5. Then sell your miles. I would t mind buying miles.

I did this. But I’m paying R10 for a gold card.
However I find the best value for me is the vitality active rewards vouchers.

Don’t see why not. I’ve bought with boy hers - used 4x. Was just painful as Cheshire had to enter the codes. Wasn’t a fan of her holding my phone. I’d guess a gift card is just a purchase?

Did anyone clarify the gym benefit with Discovery Bank: I was advised that I must activate the gym benefit on my bank app, but I don't see any option? I have a platinum CC, do I need a different account type?

It’s on the discovery app, not the bank as far as I’m aware.

Thanks. Yeah it seems like I don't qualify because I only have the credit card and not full banking suite. I don't think it's worth taking the full banking suite product just for the gym benefit

According to the new rules you’re eligible from January even if you only have a card.

Oh - the consultant told me I needed the full banking suite and have to setup a debit order from the transaction account. Do you perhaps have a link or copy of the new rules?

I don’t have official rules but this is from their site:

Thank you! Yeah I asked about this, but then the consultant said I need to be on the bundled fee option and to do that I need the full banking suite. Contradictory wording and his explanation doesn't sense, but then again it's Discovery so nothing is ever clear and there's always some or other Ts&Cs

Currently you do need a suite, I upgraded to the suite just to get the benefit. But it looks like it has changed according to that news article. Even the spend requirement has changed to R2,500. I’ll post the official rules if I can find them but their site is a mess.

Ah okay, so I guess the consultant was confirming the current rules even though I specifically asked how it was going to work next year.
Thank you! I'll also look out for the new rules, but if you find them please do share. Thanks again!

Hi!
I just spotted this link on OneDayOnly.co.za and I figured you'd like it too:
