The GEMS Programme

The GEMS Rewards Programme is our way of saying ‘Thank You’ to our parents and staff. Designed to reduce the impact of school fees and further enhance the lifestyle of our families and staff, the programme is comprised of three key elements –

  1. The GEMS NBAD Credit Card that offers up to 7% discount on school fees.
  2. The GEMS Ambassador Programme – Refer a friend to a GEMS school, and earn a 4% discount on successfully enrolled referrals.
  3. Everyday Savings – through a network of partners across dining, retail, travel, entertainment and more, GEMS has negotiated offers and discounts that significantly contribute to everyday savings.

We will continue to build this network and widen our offering, as we strive to deliver better offers every day.

Redeeming is simple. To redeem at a restaurant, simply let the waiter know that you have a GEMS Rewards Offer prior to requesting your final bill. Open the Offers section in the App and present the device to your waiter, who will then enter their pin against your voucher. You will be given the discount on the bill for the offer that you have redeemed.

There are three types of offers available in the GEMS Rewards App: "Buy One Get One Free", "Discount" Offers, and "Spend and Save."

  • The "Discount" can be used only for the service/item mentioned on the voucher. The discount will apply only on normal rates/prices, and cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotion, discount, special offer or voucher. Any request to use the “Discount Offers”, would need to be presented before the service/item is purchased.
  • When redeeming any of the “Spend and Save” Offers, you will be required to spend the minimum amount mentioned on the voucher, in order to receive the mentioned discount on your bill.

No, unless specified by the partner and explicitly stated on any communication you receive from the GEMS Rewards team, you cannot receive any reward in cash.

You can get more information by visiting our website, www.gemsrewards.com and following our Facebook Page. Also, please remember to allow in-app notifications.

For “Buy One Get One Free Offers”, you can use one Offer voucher for every two people. For example, if there are four people, you can use two vouchers. A maximum of four vouchers can be used per table/bill.;

vouchers per table

Similarly, with “Buy One Get One Free” Drinks Offers, the golden rules to remember are:

  • There are three 2-for-1 Offers per venue, which you can enjoy 7 days a week (excluding public holidays)
  • A maximum of 4 Offers can be used per booking/table/group
  • This remains the same, no matter which offer is used. For example, a group of 4 people can redeem 2 drinks Offers, or they can redeem 1 Drink Offer and 1 Main Course Offer – using 2 Offers in total

The “Buy One Get One Free” Beauty and Fitness Offers can be redeemed in two ways:

  1. One Offer can be used by two people within the same visit, with the second treatment or service being complimentary.
  2. One Offer can be used by an individual, whereby you must pay full price for the first treatment/service and your second treatment/service, will be complimentary on your next visit. The merchant provides a voucher for the second treatment/service, to be used in the future. The complimentary treatment/service, must be redeemed within the Offer validity period.
Please note: Gift vouchers cannot be issued for your complimentary treatment/service. The complimentary treatment/service is non-transferable.

  • The “Discount” Beauty and Fitness Offers can be used only for the service/item mentioned on the voucher. The discount will apply only on normal rates/prices and cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotion, discount, special offer or voucher. Any request to use the “Discount Offers”, would need to be presented prior to the service/item being purchased.
  • Upon completion of the treatment/service, prior to requesting the bill, please present the Offer to the merchant. If the Offer is in the Health & Fitness section, please present it prior to the commencement of any class or activity*.
*Prior booking is required.

Certainly, specific Offers in the Retail & Services category may be used by one person. These Offers will begin with “Invites you…” rather than “You and a guest are invited…”

You will pay the full price upfront on your first service, and then the second, will be free of charge.

Many of the Beauty & Fitness Offers can be used in two ways:

  1. One Offer can be used by two people within the same visit, with the second treatment or service being free of charge*.
  2. One Offer can also be used by one person, whereas the full price will be paid on the first treatment/service, and then the second visit, will be free of charge. The merchant will provide a voucher on the first visit to be used on the next visit. Please note, that the complimentary voucher for the treatment/service, must be used within the Offer validity period. The Offer is non-transferable and cannot be issued as a gift voucher.
*Please keep in mind the complimentary service needs to be used within the Offer Validity Period.

Once you’ve successfully redeemed an offer, you will see a screen that shows the estimated saving made in that particular transaction.

The most important bit of information on this screen is the Reference Number, which is a unique code linked to your specific offer. The merchant may note this down so that they can match the bill with their internal accounting system.

If for some reason, you need to retrieve the redemption reference number, just follow these simple steps:
