Anyone here have a Discover More card?

Postby bikermike » Thu Apr 24, 2008 9:29 pm

I was just wondering they say they offer 5% cash back in different categories thoughout the year. Can anyone tell me what the average year is like for that and what you tend to get that cash back on? I'm thinking about signing up I just don't want to do it and get junk categories like 5% on movies or something. Who cares about those no one goes often enough or spends enough on that for it to make a difference. Now gas and groceries is another story...

Just read the fine print

I just noticed this too in the fine print:

"*Earn 5% Cashback Bonus on purchases made at department stores, clothing stores, home improvement stores and lawn and garden stores from 4/1/08 (or the date on which you signed up, whichever is later) through 6/30/08, subject to a cap of $400 in purchases."

I'm disappointed with the $400 cap that's pretty low. I mean $400 over nearly 3 months? That's like $133 per month that you can get 5% cash back on. That's not worth it in my opinion.
