JOHANNESBURG, 16 April 2021 | Discovery Vitality this week announced its newly enhanced sports gear and fitness devices benefit, Vitality Active Gear. This launch includes an exciting new partnership between Vitality and Nike that aims to bring two world-class brands together with the collective aim of making South Africans healthier, keeping them moving and encouraging them to achieve their personal best.
With the new benefit, members can now save 25% upfront on a wide range of sports gear and equipment and fitness devices at Sportsmans Warehouse and Totalsports. And Vitality and Discovery Bank clients can save up to 75% upfront on qualifying fitness devices and Nike performance footwear and apparel at Sportsmans Warehouse, Totalsports and Nike stores (excluding Nike Factory stores and Nike.com).
Vitality has made a global commitment to get 100 million people 20% more active by 2025. This bold aspiration resonates with Nike’s drive to bring inspiration and innovation to every athlete in the world by uniting them through sport to create a healthy planet and active communities.
“It has always been a priority for Vitality to keep innovating at the intersection of wellness, physical activity and technology. Collaborating with world-class partners is key to keeping our members motivated and active using incentives backed by behavioural science,” says Dinesh Govender, Vitality’s CEO. “The events of the past year showed us the importance of putting to market an agile programme that meets the changing needs of our members. Vitality Active Gear is testament to this and we’re hugely excited about this pioneering benefit.”
How to get started
To get 25% off, Vitality members simply need to activate Vitality Active Rewards on the Discovery app for an initial 10% upfront discount with Vitality Active Gear, then find out their Vitality Age online and complete a Vitality Health Check or Virtual Vitality Health Check-in for an additional 15% off.
Then, by getting active and achieving their weekly Vitality Active Rewards exercise goals, members can increase their discount to 50% - the discount increases by 5% for every five Vitality Active Rewards exercise goals achieved.
Upgrade your bank, upgrade your gear and save even more
For a massive 75% upfront discount on Vitality Active Gear, join Discovery Bank and access your personalised discount based on your product type and card colour, qualifying spend and Vitality Money status. This means that members can save from 10% to 75% upfront on qualifying fitness devices and Nike performance footwear and apparel if they’re a Vitality Health member with a qualifying Discovery Bank product and Vitality Money.
There’s no activation fee for this enhanced benefit and all members have to do is activate Vitality Active Rewards to start working towards maximum discounts.
The Vitality Active Gear benefit replaces the HealthyGear, Shoe Booster, Device Booster and Bike Booster benefits, providing members with a much more inclusive, card-free offering.
