Link:   Discover it

Link:   Discover it Activate 5% Cash Back Bonus

Folks with the Discover it can now activate the 2nd quarter 5% bonus cash back categories of restaurants and movies.  You’ll earn 5% back in these categories between April 1, 2016, and June 30, 2016, on up to $1,500 in spending.

Use Your Discover it Card to Earn Bonus Cash Back When You Dine Out Between April 1, 2016, and June 30, 2016

And your Netflix subscription counts as movie tickets!  Remember, new cardholders (or folks who previously registered) will have their cash back doubled at the end of their 1st 12 billing cycles.

So you’ll effectively earn 10% cash back on dining out, Netflix, and movies!  Even on purchases outside the US.

Save on Netflix All Through 2016

Unfortunately, there’s no way to pre-pay Netflix, so you’ll get 5% back each month.  But here’s a tip to continue saving 5% or 10% later in the year.  Purchase a Netflix gift card through Amazon.com from July 1, 2016 through December 31, 2016, when Amazon is a Discover it 5% bonus category!

Remember, the Discover it doesn’t add foreign transaction fees, so it’s a good card to use while you’re traveling overseas!  Discover cards aren’t accepted everywhere, but you can look for the China Union Pay, Discover, Diners Club, or JCB logo at places you can use your card.

2.   Citi ThankYou Virgin Atlantic 25% Transfer Bonus

Via FrequentMiler, you’ll earn a 25% bonus when you transfer Citi ThankYou points to Virgin Atlantic until April 6, 2016, at 11:59 pm Eastern Time.

You’ll get 1,250 Virgin Atlantic miles for every 1,000 Citi ThankYou points you transfer.  Normally, the ratio is 1:1, so this is a good deal if you like redeeming Virgin Atlantic miles.

Virgin Atlantic adds big fuel surcharges to their own award tickets.  But folks might consider using Virgin Atlantic miles for award flights on Virgin America or Hawaiian Airlines (which don’t add fuel surcharges).

And if you can find available award seats, you can use Virgin Atlantic miles to fly Delta (and pay only the taxes, fees, and fuel surcharges Delta normally adds).

3.   AMEX Offer – $10 Off $25+ at Carraba’s Italian Grill

AMEX cardholders can earn a $10 statement credit when they spend $25+ at Carrabba’s Italian Grill through May 31, 2016.

To get the deal, sign-in your American Express account and add the offer to your card.  Or tweet “#AMEXCarrabbas” @AMEXOffers from your synced Twitter account.

This offer is only available in-restaurant.  Airport locations (and a couple of spots in Houston) don’t qualify.

If you’re new to AMEX Offers, check out my post on how to get in on these deals!  And remember, it’s possible to get these offers on more than 1 AMEX account!

4.   Amazon Prime Members Get $15 Off With Discover Card

Are you an Amazon Prime and Discover cardholder?

Until December 31, 2016, Amazon Prime members can earn up to $15 off an Amazon purchase when they link their Discover card account and use promotion code “DISC16EVER”.

To get the discount, pay for your Amazon purchase with at least 1 cent from your Discover cashback bonus.  Only products sold and shipped by Amazon are eligible (not 3rd parties).

Some folks report the promotion code didn’t work for them, but Amazon customer service was able to apply the discount when they called in.

Let me know if it works for you!

  1. Question about the Discover it card- Does the 5% back on categories apply for US institutions only or also when purchasing gas, dining, etc; abroad? We live out of the country most of the year and I’m looking for a good no foreign transaction fee card with a nice reward. Thanks!

  2. Hi, love the blog and the advice. Do you have a link to the official terms for the Discover/Amazon deal? Can’t seem to find one. Thx.

  3. I followed the steps to link my Discover card to my Amazon Prime account. I had multiple items shipped by Amazon in my cart, but could not get the code to work online. So I called in to customer service and they said the code was not in their system so they wouldn’t honor it for me. Bummer!

  4. the Discover promo code didn’t work for me so I called Amazon. the rep crudely told me to read the 2nd term of the promo: it only applies to paid Prime membership; trial membership doesn’t count. no matter what I said, they were not willing to budge.

  5. I tried the Amazon/Discover deal too (I am a Prime member). I couldn’t get the promotion code applied to my order, so I placed it and contacted customer service. They responded and said that the offer was targeted to specific email addresses and would not honor the promotion for me.
