If you are a Vitality member you can get up to 25% cash back on healthy food from Pick n Pay or Woolworths, thousands of items from Clicks or Dis-Chem and nearly all items sold at Sportsmans Warehouse or Totalsports.

However, we find that a lot of Vitality members are not aware of this benefit or are only receiving a 10% or 15% cash back instead of the full 25% cashback as they did not realise that they had to follow an activation process for each provider to achieve the full cashback
