An example:

Celeste books a holiday to Mauritius with her travel professional. The holiday costs R25 000 of which R20 000 is the cost of the accommodation (R 5 000 consists of third party fees, additional extras, airfares, airport taxes and gratuities). Celeste pays the R25 000 with her Discovery Card, she has been with Discovery Vitality for over five years, and is on Gold Vitality status. Celeste also wants to redeem 250 000 Discovery Miles for additional cash back. Her cash back will be paid as follows:

 

Celeste books a holiday to Mauritius by contacting her travel professional. and pays the total fee of R25 000 using her Discovery Card.

 

Total amount paid with Discovery Card: R25 000

 

World Leisure Holidays sends the invoice and all the details to Discovery for the discount to be calculated. The invoice shows the clear breakdown that R20 000 of the total booking was the base costs, and the remainder R5 000 was airfares, airport taxes and gratuities.

Qualifying spend to get cash back: R20 000

 

Celeste is a Discovery Vitality member for over five years and is on Gold Vitality status. This allows her 15% cash back.

 

 

Qualifying  cash  back percentage 15%

 

Discovery Vitality calculates the cash back as 15% off the base cost of R20 000

Cash back due to Vitality status: R3 000

 

Celeste also has Discovery Miles and wants to redeem her Miles for additional cash back. She calls the Discovery Card call centre on 0860 11 2273 and gets the miles redemption form from the call centre agents.

 

Celeste decides to redeem 250 000 Discovery Miles, fills in the form and sends it back to Vitality.

 

 

Discovery Miles redemption requested 250 000 Discovery Miles

 

Vitality calculates that the maximum Discovery Miles allowed to be redeemed on the booking is 220 000. This is calculated as:

 

Total booking cost (R25 000) less cash back received (R3 000) multiplied by 10.

Allowable  Discovery  Miles  redemption 220 000 Discovery Miles

Vitality therefore redeems the maximum allowable Discovery Miles of 220 000

220 000 Discovery Miles

Vitality redeems the Discovery Miles and pays Celeste an additional R22 000 in cash back

R22 000

The total cash back that Celeste receives is R25 000
R3 000 (cash back) + R22 000 (Miles redeemed)

Cash back due to Vitality status: R3 000
Cash back due to Discovery Miles: R22 000
