Netflix is the new smoothie for Discovery Vitality members

JOHANNESBURG, 8 April 2021 | Discovery Vitality is excited to announce a timeous new reward for members – a month of Netflix for the cost of a coffee or smoothie.

Vitality CEO, Dinesh Govender says: “We have always enhanced our rewards aligned to what we know members will enjoy most as an incentive for keeping fit and healthy. Netflix is the premium streaming platform for current content and we want to offer our members safe and valuable options as we navigate the reality that is COVID-19. This reality means we are spending more time at home and enjoying digital entertainment options, hence the partnership.”

Govender adds that members can claim the reward when they make just one Vitality Active Rewards goal for the month. “We recognise the challenges associated with the current context, therefore it was important for us to ensure that the reward is accessible. We’ve made this an extremely attainable at just 150 Discovery Miles for a month’s access to Netflix, which is what it would cost members to redeem a coffee or smoothie reward,” he says.

“This approach is in line with the principles of Discovery’s shared-value insurance model, in which we incentivise our members for engaging in healthy lifestyle behaviours, towards greater societal good,” Govender says.
