Discover Card Cashback Rewards expired!

Postby hakan » Mon Jul 21, 2014 7:34 pm

I had about $75 in Cashback Rewards saved up and then did not use my card for two years. I was told that the rewards do not expire. But they do! :mad:

I just found out that they expire if you do not use your card after 18 months.

Does anyone have any advice on what I could do to get these rewards reinstated? I wonder if I threaten to close my account that they'd be able to return these rewards to me. If anyone has any advice, thanks in advance!

You didn't use your discover card at all in the last 18 months? I am surprised they didn't close your account.

It sucks about the expiring cash back though, try to chat with a rep or talk to someone on the phone and be as nice as possible and maybe they can give it back to you.

I'm interested at knowing why didn't you cash it out. it's not like you can use discover cash back for more than 1cent per point or anything.

I hate it when they advertise 'points don't expire' but they actually do.

You can always try but threatening to close a long unused card really isn't much of a threat.

Thanks for the heads up hakan.

I always make it a priority to put some activity on all my cards. Just to keep them from closing down or losing out accumulated rewards.
