I don't have a Discover card, but my mom does. I had posted on here before trying to get the best cashback at the Apple Store and I was advised to go through Shop Discover. I asked my mom if I could use her card and pay her back so I could get 10% off at the Apple Store (5% online bonus & 5% bonus at Apple through shop Discover).
She said yes (we've always had a very good and trusting relationship). I ordered my computer through Apple & Shop Discover yesterday. Discovered flagged the transaction - (I should have known it would happen - I live in California and my mom lives in Massachusetts). So they called my mom and she approved the charges, but I would have to go back into my order and try the payment again.
I promptly went back to the Apple website, checked my order status, and hit "re-authorize payment" to put the card through. It went through.
Then it hit me. I didn't go through Shop Discover when I went BACK into my order to reauthorize the payment. Crap!
I know I'll still get the online shopping bonus, but did I ruin my chances for the Shop Discover bonus? Or will it be okay since it was the same order?
I think I have about a 50/50 chance...
I'm not sure if anyone here has any experience with something like this, but just thought I'd ask.
