GHA Discovery: Double Night Credits Towards Elite Status Until 31 December 2018

GHA Discovery has sent out emails to their members advertising their Q4 promotion: Double night credits towards elite status for the remainder of 2018.

The promotion requires prior registration and will help members achieve GHA Platinum or Black Status double as fast.

You can access the promotion registration page here.

Register to earn double night credits toward elite membership status for qualified stays for the remainder of 2018.

Step 1: Register for double night credits
Step 2: Book your stay on, the DISCOVERY Loyalty app, or brand websites for hotels in the DISCOVERY Collection
Step 3: Stay from 1 October 2018 through 31 December 2018 at any of our 500+ hotels and resorts across the globe

Qualified Offer Dates: 01 October 2018 – 31 December 2018

Qualified Stay Dates: 01 October 2018 – 31 December 2018

GHA Platinum is the mid tier requiring 10-29 nights and GHA Black as the top tier requires 30 nights for Black status within a rolling year for new members and calendar year for existing ones.

You can access all GHA Discovery Benefits and the different status levels here.

The program is solely benefit based and you won’t earn free nights or points with Discovery. You get “Local Experience” awards that can be dinners etc. You can however earn airline miles for your stays.


GHA Discovery status is often available through various premium credit card products such as Mastercard World Elite and Visa Signature/Infinite which are widely available at different markets.

I have gotten some nice upgrades as an elite member on occasion even when I booked a GHA hotel through a third party channel in case that the price was right. I probably wouldn’t actively pursue Discovery Elite status though as I’m not a big fan of ‘benefit only’ programs and rather stick to the big chains for my hotel status. Nevertheless if this makes sense for you then why not, GHA has some decent hotels such as Alila hotels in their network.
