Discover 2x Cashback Received!

Postby swipe_masta » Sat Jul 16, 2016 1:04 pm

Can't believe it's been a year from when I added the 2x cashback promo on my card. I earned 244.61 and Discover matched it (haven't gotten this portion yet) to a total of 489.22! The matched portion should come next billing cycle.

I know there are a lot of us who have had miscalculated rewards balances, I actually made a thread previously somewhere. It would be impossible for me to calculate if this total is correct or not, but I am nonetheless a happy customer.

Has anyone else come to an end and how much did you get back?

Mine posted a few weeks ago and was $180. I had just spent $800 on amazon and was hoping it would slide in but I think I missed it by a few days....I'm still pretty happy with what I got.

That was a good promotion and made me reach for my Discover a little more often...

Just got mine:

$272.07 - $75 of which came from maxing out the Restaurants category (due to work reimbursable expenses) + another $50 came from purchasing my Surface Pro 4 through discover deals at BB. The rest came from smaller purchases.

:money:

Hopefully they run it again this year for existing customers.
CSR $24K | Discover IT $22.9K | AMEX BCE $15K | AMEX EveryDay $12.9K | Marriott Premier - $11K | Delta Platinum $10K | Freedom $6.5K | Freedom $6K | BOA Travel Rewards - $2.7K | AMEX Premier Gold

I doubt they will. They first introduced it in lieu of a traditional introductory bonus (in the form of spend $X in Y months, get a $Z bonus) for new cardmembers and allowed existing cardmembers to get it in on it. I believe they cut off existing cardmembers quite a while ago.

The signup window for existing customers ran from late May or early June to late June or early July 2015...about a month.

My match posted, but it was only about $110...mostly from Q2 dining and a few portal transactions.

Discover didn't get my Q2 home improvement spending, since I went with Prestige for price rewind and the extended warranty. Other transactions for which I might have used a Discover portal went to minimum spend on other cards and the AAdvantage portal.

Letting new accounts cool off since May
Really not sure what I'll add next or when

$352.18. I think a good portion of that was due to the 10% on Apple Pay purchase of an iPhone 6s Plus.
