After earning $1450 Cashback from Discover recently, anything with a Discover bonus catches my eye.

With Discover on my mind, I was pleased to find a Discover Cashback Checking $50 bonus offer in the mail. Normally, it would have gone straight to the recycle bin!

The Discover bank checking account also offers rewards in addition to the sign up bonus. How exciting for Free Money Friday!

  2. Open a new Discover Bank checking account by December 15, 2014.

  4. Earn a $50 credit on your checking account.

Terms and Conditions

  • Bonus will be issued by 1/19/15 as a credit to your Cashback Checking account, which must be open when issued.
