Global Hotel Alliance (GHA) Discovery program went through a refresh at the end of 2021. GHA has launched its first promotion that utilizes their new loyalty program currency called Discovery Dollars (D$).
Some, if not all elite members of Discovery, have received an email overnight offering them some D$, in my instance D$50, that must be claimed by January 15 and is valid for three months after issuance.
You can access GHA Discovery here.
I clicked through the email, and the page suggests that the bonus D$ is added to accounts in early 2022. The bonus D$ validity is then hidden on the email’s T&Cs stating that they are valid for three months after issuance.
Select Platinum members get D$50 and Titanium D$100. This offer is unavailable for members who had existing Local Experiences converted to D$. The bonus D$ should be deposited to member accounts, who opt-in, on February 15.
GHA tries to get members to stay at their affiliated hotels and test how easy it is to use their earned D$ towards settling part of the stay.
Theoretically, hotels should be able to offset any folio expenses at the time of check out using the D$ that you have in your account.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
