Discover Q2 category

Postby sakhalin » Sat Feb 02, 2013 3:53 am

"Home Improvement
April - June 2013
Fresh for spring!
Get 5% Cashback Bonus on up to $1,500 in purchases at Home Improvement Stores from April through June 2013."

I was hoping the Home Improvement AND Clothing Stores info was true, but it's only half true. I was hoping for the other half to be true though, lol!
AMEX BCE ($20,000), Citi Forward ($4,800), Discover IT ($3,750), BoA Travel Rewards ($1,800)

That's weak. I'll have no reason to use my Discover for the entire quarter. That's kind of a niche category. Maybe Q3 should be 5% cash back on up to $1500 spent on cat food.
Amex Platinum
Amex BCP 21K
Amex SPG 5K
Barclaycard Arrival Plus WEMC 5K
Chase Sapphire Preferred 23.5K

Maybe if Lowe's online gets 5% cash back plus 5% through ShopDiscover. That'd be cool.

Home improvement places sell gift cards.

Someone with cats might make use of that.

How about 5% cash back on up to $1500 of carbon paper.

I believe both Home Depot and Loew's are on ShopDiscover. And it's nice that they sell gift cards!
