I have a Discover Open Road card from back in the day. The benefits are pretty underwhelming, 2% cash back on gas and and restaurants, but only for the first $250 spent per month in those categories. Which, these days, doesn't go very far (I spend far more than $250 per month on either category, let alone combined.)
And of course, now I have the CSP that gives 2 UR points per dollar in those same categories, without a $250 spending limit. Suffice it to say I'll likely charge most fuel and dining transactions to the CSP going forward.
Discover also has various online shopping rewards and such that pop up on their web site. These are cited as a benefit of the Discover IT card, but as best I can tell, I seem to be offered the same deals on the Open Road card.
I won't get rid of the Discover, but I'm considering a PC from the Open Road card to the Discover IT. However, I'm a bit reluctant, as the Open Road card is discontinued and I wouldn't be able to get it back. Plus, I really like the space shuttle motif on my card
Thus, my question is: To PC or not to PC? Am I overlooking anything I'll lose with the Open Road? Does the Discover IT have any benefits OTHER than the rotating 5% categories that I don't get with the Open Road?
Is the Discover IT simply a better card and I should stop being sentimental and PC?
