Owning a credit card is really convenient because it means clients can use it at most places, not only around South Africa but the world. It eliminates the need to carry cash and can come in very handy when one has no cash at all. Apart from the straight purchases that clients can enjoy, most institutions offers budget repayments, giving clients the comfort of paying back the money owed on their credit cards in a few months.
Discovery is no different and offers even more benefits and rewards for their clients. Benefits for clients include, up to 55 days interest-free credit, monthly e-mail statements, competitive debit and credit interest rates, online banking and PIN management and security features. For every transaction over R100, clients get an SMS notification informing them of the amount and time of the transaction. For the clients’ convenience, the Discovery Card will also be delivered straight to the clients’ doorstep.
Clients can get up to 20% cash back in their Discovery Card for purchases at a Discovery partner store in South Africa. World Leisure Holidays, Royal Caribbean International and Contiki as a holiday resort for clients can get them up to 22% cash back. Clients can enjoy up to 50% savings in the Vitality Hotel Collection. Discovery is also the official card partner with Big Concerts and they’re giving Discovery Card holders exclusive access to great deals and offers to South Africa’s selected premium live events.
