Total Cash Back. Obviously 5% of $300 is only $15. But it’s $15 you didn’t have before, so why not take advantage of it?

Sign Up Required. To be eligible for the promotion, you must sign up first. When you login to your online account at Discover, they’ll let you know if your Discover card is eligible for the promotion.

Get More Calendar. Discover changes the 5% cash back categories each quarter. I like to check it each quarter to see what the new deal is. See the Discover Cashback Calendar.

  1. We just got the Discover card to take advantage of the $100 cash back bonus. One thing I did not like was that when I activated our cards, the customer service rep made it nearly impossible for me to get off the phone without agreeing to sign up for the Payment Protection plan. You can cancel the plan within 30 days at no charge but it’s a hassle. So, just be aware of that. I’ve charged the minimum of $500 required to get the $100 so I’m waiting to see when that gets processed.


  2. The only thing about the “cash back” is Discover Card charges interest from the moment you swipe the card. There is no longer the “float” or “grace” period to pay your balance off at the end of the month without interest charges. So are you really getting cash back? I don’t think so.
