Bigger Miles Ð-Day discounts for a Black Friday Weekend Takeover

Johannesburg, 24 November 2021 — Discovery Bank today announced additional discounts for an extended period for this upcoming Black Friday. As part of a Miles Ð-Day Black Friday Weekend Takeover, qualifying Discovery Bank clients can double their Discovery Miles discounts on purchases made at retail partners between 26 and 29 November 2021.

“Discovery Miles are already more valuable than cash with additional savings and ways to use them, particularly on Miles Ð-Day, which happens on the 15th of every month. This Black Friday, we are making it possible for Discovery Bank clients to get their Discovery Miles discounts over and above the special offers and we are extending the Black Friday, giving you 4 additional days of Miles Ð-Day over the entire weekend – so clients can shop for less like never before,” says Akash Dowra, Head of Client Insights at Discovery Bank.

Discovery Bank is extending Black Friday and clients have from 00:00 on 26 November to 23:59 on 29 November to get double Discovery Miles discount on purchases at over 40 online and in-store retail partners. Qualifying Discovery Bank clients can already get up to 20% off when spending Discovery Miles and during Miles Ð-Day Black Friday Weekend Takeover, Discovery Bank will double the discount that clients usually get based on their Vitality Money status. Over the Black Friday Weekend Takeover, clients can get between 10% and 40% when spending Discovery Miles, that’s extra off the discounted prices retailers offer as part of Black Friday.

“This is what shared-value banking means. Our clients take care of their financial wellbeing through their healthy financial choices. The choices our clients make, enable us to give them even more savings as a reward, just like the additional 10% to 40% off on discounted prices for Black Friday,” concludes Dowra.
