"Exciting Changes to Your Rewards Program"

Postby rockyrock » Sat Jan 03, 2015 9:19 am

Got a notice from Discover yesterday indicating "great changes" to the reward program.

We can now redeem CB in any amount for statement credit, charitable contributions or electronic x-fer.

Among those changes you will no longer be able to redeem your cashback for Discover GCs.
Sapphire Reserve: travel & dining
Blue Cash Preferred: groceries & gas
Freedom: 5% cats
Double Cash: everything else

I'm disappointed to hear they will be canceling gift cards. It was a great deal to be able to get a personalized card with no activation or shipping fees. They're still available - for now - under the "gift" section. Did it say anything about when that would go in effect?
