So I'm not sure why it's taken me so long to catch on but I have only recently realised the awesome savings that are there for the taking at Pick 'n Pay if you have Discovery Medical Aid. Basically, what Discovery have done is form a partnership with Pick 'n Pay which is aimed at encouraging healthy eating. This is done by offering 25% of your cash back when you spend it on certain foods. All the foods have been identified by a team of professionals (doctors, nutritionalists, professors, dietitians etc) as the healthiest options available. Some examples of the categories of foods that are included are: fresh fruits and vegetables, healthy carbohydrates, dairy and dairy alternatives, proteins, lentils and legumes and oils, spreads, nuts and seeds. You also earn Discovery points when you buy these foods. So, in a nutshell, Pick 'n Pay takes the hassle out of shopping because they have already identified the foods that will benefit your health the most, you then pay 25% less for these goods and earn Discovery points while doing it. It sounds too good to be true.
You have to apply for your Discovery/Pick 'n Pay Healthy Eating card which I have done. It takes 10 days to arrive and then you can start swiping it at the nearest Pick 'n Pay. It was super-easy to apply for the card online at http://www.discovery.co.za/ and I am looking forward to giving it a go. You can also call 0860 99 88 77. What are you waiting for?
