So I guess Discover likes me!

Postby AMEXAT19 » Wed Jun 26, 2013 10:28 pm

Tonight I called and responded to Discovers offer of 3% on all purchases until the end of the year. The representative informed me that less than 5% of cardholders receive this offer. I am wondering if any of you on the forum have received this offer as well. So as the representative also said so basically you'll earn 8% cash back until the end of the year, 3% for the promotion and 5% for the rotating categories up to $1500. That is my problem I use my American Express for most of all my purchases, would you all sacrifice Membership Rewards points for essentially 8% cash back. By they way my Discover CL is $5,000.

How long have you been a discover card member? Personally, I value cashback>MR and grats on that offer.

Dang, that's a sweet offer! 3% alone is more of a value than MR (~1%) to me but stacked with rotating categories to 8%--you pretty much can't beat that.

How did you receive this offer--mail, email, website?

Discover never did like me so I sure never got it, but if I had, I would do it.

I have been a Discover cardholder since 2011, this offer was to thank me for my loyalty.

But I really think that this is a tactic from Discover to get me to use the card, I had a CL at $2,250 and they wouldn't increase my limit without a hard pull, and basically told them I had other cards I could use. So I finally gave in did a hard pull and they automatically gave me what I wanted $5,000, mad that I didn't go higher so they could counter. So then all these promotions rolled in to get me I think to use the card again cause really only used it every three months and spent a $100 or two.

Heck yea 8% is better than losing out on MR points. You can't beat that with a stick.

Okay, thanks. I've been away from home for a year and I told my wife to just toss all the "junk" mail. I've been a card holder since 2011 as well, maybe I should just call and see what happens. I'll be home next month so I could really rack up the CB!
