i actually like this GUI better. i can save the shopping portals i use onto a favorites list. Dell Business, tigerdirect, HP, Apple, staples, etc. i use discover for my business and pick up thousands of dollars a year in cash back.


I guess that makes sense with the portals, but as far as browsing the offerings and finding stuff, I don't find it nearly as nice or user friendly. Shop Discover was very easy to browse. Discover Deals...not so much.

I'm also disappointed that they don't have anything with Petco anymore. That was actually the only one I used consistently.

Actually, it is not the same deal. With shop discover the rebate was going towards the cash rewards. The cash rewards could then be used with the discover partners for additional savings sometimes to even additional 10% off. . Now the price gets reduced immediately and although the reduction is the same as before the saving does not go towards cash rewards where they can be used for additional saving.

They currently offer (and I think they previously did offer) several different "saving methods". Some deals offer a statement credit, others a CB bonus, and others instant savings.

The "saving method" for each deal is pretty clearly displayed.

Well, the merchants come and go and I'm sure with the Double promo, they can't afford to keep all the Deals the same.

Well, especially with this quarter's promo on Amazon, where you can pretty much buy everything you would at BestBuy and at at least as good a price. Still, I kind of like ordering something on Bestbuy.com and going and picking it up at the store. Not that the absence of the promo will keep me from doing it for something I really want, but still. It was nice!

I get 20% off all video games at Best Buy plus the 5% Discover Deal gave was a nice discount. Theyve had Best Buy since they started this program. Thats why I thought it was odd they dropped them.

I just looked recently and apparently Best Buy is back on the portal.

They recently added Walgreens online, where I do most of my brick and mortar shopping for household items. 5% cash back on select items through their website. I bought some razor blades and multivitamins which totaled about $45.
