It says "All online shopping" so i hope ebay qualifies. I'm not a big fan of shopping, so a lot of my Christmas shopping gets done through sites like ebay and amazon.

So random question, why do they make us sign up each time instead of making it automatic?

Cause there are people who forget to sign up, saving lenders money.

and at certain times of the year not all categorys are for everyone example last April thru June 2011 they had drug stores, grocery stores and home improvement this isn't for somebody like me.

they could do fashion, department stores and movies this wouldn't appeal to most men, as compared to gas or restaurants.
that's another reason to why you need to sighn up.

The additional 5% on top of the generous percentages ShopDiscover already gives makes it even sweeter! I have absolutely no problem signing up for the bonus categories, it only takes a few mouse clicks and a couple seconds and its definitely worth it. And they tell you what the quarters are point blank from the beginning of the year, not all cloak and dagger like Citi Dividend who doesn't tell you what the categories are until right before they start. Not trying to sound like a Discover cheerleader or something but I'm so glad I have a credit relationship with them.
