I mainly use a Barclays Travel Reward card and whenever i use it, it will automatically show my earned miles. It is always spot on. With Discover, however, I noticed that I don't always get rewards I think I should be getting. Mind you I am a banker for a living and I have pretty awesome math skills.
For instance, last year I followed a link thru Discover to Best Buy and bought some merch and never received the bonus cash back promised by the link.
I started to use the card again recently as I have a lot of Xmas shopping to do at Amazon.com and clothing stores and as I am buying stuff - the rewards do not appear to be adding up to 5%.
What are your experiences w/ Discover rewards -cash back?
I would say the easiest thing to do here would be to call Discover customer service and tell them specifically where you think things don't add up. There is always some form of delay with the rewards, but that obviously doesn't mean it should be wrong and you should also easily be able to figure it out, math skills or not.
Give them a call and see what they say. It could also have to do with the way the individual merchants have themselves coded with their credit card processors.
