Spring promo (Home improvement, etc)

Postby amexcurious » Fri Feb 21, 2014 6:49 am

Regarding the April/May/June 5% cash back promo, besides the obvious Home Depot and Lowe's, what other stores qualify as "home improvement stores"?

They also mention furniture stores, some choices are again very obvious like Ethan Allen for example, but is there a comprehensive list somewhere? I could not find it at discover.com

Doubt if you'll find a specific all-inclusive list of what falls under that category of "home improvement stores". My guess would be that, various hardware stores like Ace and True Value would qualify, in addition to furniture stores like Ashley and regional stores like American Furniture Warehouse in the West. If there's Linen and Things stores around, or that type of store, that may also qualify. Not sure if stores like WalMart, K-Mart/Sears, etc would qualify...even the Martha Stewart line!

If in doubt before the spend, just call Discover Customer Service. I'm sure they could tell you before you rack up a huge spend!

Best explanation I could find:

"Home improvement stores are defined as home improvement retail stores, lumber/building material stores, paint/wallpaper stores, hardware stores and lawn and garden supply centers."
