1 Based on your monthly activity points you can earn up to 1% Vitality cashback booster and up to 1% cashback from American Express. We calculate your Vitality cashback booster based on how many eligible Vitality plans you have and how many Vitality activity points you earn each month, using a Vitality-compatible device. Each month’s cashback booster rate is based on the activity points earned two months previously. So you won’t earn Vitality cashback booster until the start of the third calendar month after you activate the benefit with Vitality. You can earn Vitality cashback booster on the first £1,000 of purchases each month. You’ll earn no cashback booster on purchases under £4, when your rate is 0.25%.
2 Subject to eligibility criteria and approval. Visit vitality.co.uk/rewards/partners/ for terms and conditions. Interest rates link to the Bank of England base rate. See amex.co.uk for details.

Points and Healthchecks
To encourage you to take a broader view of your physical wellbeing, we’re increasing the number of ways you can earn Vitality points. If your key health indicators are in the healthiest category, we’re also making it easier for you to earn and retain points, by reducing the need for yearly Vitality Healthchecks.
Up to 80% off health screenings with Bluecrest
From 13 December 2019, Bluecrest will be our primary health screen provider, making it easier to take control of your health - and understand your key health numbers.
Depending on your Vitality Age Gap, you’ll now be able to save between 50% and 80% on one screening with Bluecrest per plan year. To qualify for the discount, you need to complete your Vitality Healthcheck.
You can book at one of 2,000 locations across the UK throughout the year - from the south coast to Inverness. We’re also significantly improving the discounts available to you.
As a result, you’ll no longer be able to use Nuffield Health and BMI Healthcare for your discounted health screenings. However, any health screenings you’ve already booked (until 1 February 2020) will be valid. You can find more details in Member Zone.
Other points and clinical changes
- If you have achieved ‘Green Zone’ results for any biometric readings (BMI, Blood Glucose, Blood Pressure and Cholesterol) in a Vitality Healthcheck, you’ll now get the Vitality points for those Green Zone readings automatically in the next plan year. This means you may only need a Vitality Healthcheck every two years.
- Vitality points for cholesterol readings will now be based on the ratio of total cholesterol to ‘good’ HDL (High-density Lipoprotein) cholesterol.
- BMI assessments will now also include a waist circumference measurement.
- From 1st January 2020 we’ll no longer be rolling over 10% of your Vitality points into your next plan year.
- You will no longer be able to earn Vitality points for ECG and Glaucoma test screenings.
- We’ll be adding a new range of screening activities which you can earn points for including points for an eye test every two years.
