    Default was it October 26th or the 6th

    I just received my October statement under the cash back statement it only has me at 1.25
    I made a purchase of 18.00 at Pasta couciana and a 25.00 purchase at Nordstroms.
    when looking at my statement I thought it was low. I did call Discover spoke to an account
    mgr. she went looking for the promotion she couldn't find she transferred me over to a supervisor specialist , she said that it was the wrong day the day that Discover had that promotion was October 6th. so my question was it October 6th or the 26th?

    the supervisor said that the poster could have looked at the promotion being October 6th and accidentally written the 26th.

    when I saw that post I actually called Discover to see if we can use it on anything and anywhere that account mgr. said yes , they signed me up I assumed it was the 26th not just online shopping but we could use our More card anywhere for the 2%. so as I mentioned
    I went to Pasta Coucciana and Nordstroms just by looking $1.25 seems to be very low of
    9% back on $43.00. For anybody that is wondering Discover did sign me up for Department stores. so it should have been for Nordstroms 7% back and my pasta place 2%
    back. could Discover have made a mistake , it really was the 26th or is Discover correct saying was it the 6th?

    It was 2% for everything on the 26th.

    If you just get a flat 2% card you won't have to monkey around with Discover's ridiculous 2% promos here and there.

    I used my Discover more card twice that day for Nordstroms it would be 7% back and the pasta restaurant it would be 2% back add both up it would come up to 9%

    I'm pretty sure that's not how it works. You would do (7% * Nordstrom purchase) + (2% * restaurant purchase). You're doing it like (2% + 7%) * (Nordstrom purchase + restaurant purchase). That gives you two very different results.
