Discover Card 5% Bonus Cashback 2010 Q3

By | July 30, 2010

Use your Discover Card on gas, hotels, movies, and theme parks from July through September and get 5% Cashback Bonus on up to $300 in these purchases. All your other purchases will earn up to 1% unlimited Cashback Bonus automatically.

Earn 5% Cashback Bonus on up to $300 in purchases from July through September at:

  • Gas Stations
  • Movies
  • Hotels
  • Theme Parks

I signed up for the 5% Cashback Bonus program in less than two minutes and received a confirmation immediately. I do not own a car, pay for movies, stay in hotels nor visit the theme parks, so I may not be able to take advantage of the 5% cashback.

    Yeah, the 5% is a great marketing plug, BUT the categories rotate and it’s just not worth it at all for me. I don’t know for sure, but the average person probably ends up making very little more than 1% cashback overall on all their spend on a product like this. I prefer my steady 2% cashback card on ALL spend (Fidelity Amex or Schwab Visa).

    Dolla Thug,

    The 5% Cashback Bonus is great if you are already using Discover Card or if you purchase heavily in those categories during each quarter. However, I agree with you, keeping track of the bonuses involves work, and it is a hassle to bring multiple credit cards, therefore I have been using my Fidelity Amex (2% cashback) as my primary credit card, and have my Citibank Dividend Mastercard as backup.
