Don’t miss out! If you have the Discover it card, you can activate your card now and get 5% cash back at home improvement stores and Amazon from July 1, 2016, to September 30, 2016!
And I’ll explain how new Discover cardholders can earn up to $150 back for that spending.
Here’s more about Discover’s quarterly bonuses. And how to activate your card!
5% Back on Home Improvement Stores & Amazon
Link: Discover it
You can get up to $75 cash back each quarter on bonus categories with your Discover it card.
And you can activate your card now to get ready for the 3rd quarter 5% back bonus!
From July 2016 through September 2016, you’ll earn 5% back at home improvement stores and Amazon on up to $1,500 in purchases.
This means you can get up to $75 cash back for ordering items on Amazon, buying paint from Ace Hardware, or even purchasing tools at Lowes!
New Cardmembers Get Their Cash Back Doubled the First Year
The Discover it card is currently offering a $50 sign-up bonus after making a purchase within the first 3 months of opening your account.
And if you’re a new cardmember, Discover will automatically match all the cash back you’ve earned at the end of your 1st year on your credit card. And apply the match after the first 12 consecutive billing cycles within the following 2 billing cycles.
So you can effectively earn 10% cash back on the rotating bonus categories. And the $50 sign-up bonus will be matched too! That’s a great deal!
For folks who already have the card, you’re eligible to get a 2nd card if you’ve had the 1st card at least 1 year.
Is the Discover it the Best Cash Back Card Option?
But I prefer the Chase Freedom card because you can use the Chase Ultimate Rewards points you earn for Big Travel instead of just cash back.
I recommend getting any Chase cards you want first. Because Chase now has stricter approval rules.
And now, you can activate your Discover it card for the 3rd quarter Discover bonus categories.
You’ll get 5% cash back at home improvement stores and Amazon from July 1, 2016, to September 30, 2016. But only when you activate!
And if you’re a new cardmember, Discover will automatically match all the cash back you’ve earned at the end of your 1st year on your credit card.
