Re: Alert: Discover More extra cash back on 10/26

I am new to Discover More. It seems to me that if they are giving out an "extra" 2% on 10/26, and it was a 1% CB purchase normally, that this would be 3% to expect back on 10/26, not 2x. Please correct me if I am on the wrong track...

All 3 bureaus (per Amex CreditSecure FAKO) are still 748 (as of 12/19/13). Cards: Discover It, $12,100, Chase Freedom $3,300, Chase Amazon $1,500, Walmart store $11,000, AMEX Zync NPSL, Costco Amex $14,700. US. Bank Cash +, $5,000. AMEX SPG $6,000, PenFed Plat. Cash Rewards $17,500, PenFed P-LOC $10,000, Citi Forward $5,100, Chase Slate $5,000, Old Navy, $2,200.

It's an extra 2%, stackable on top of any regular cash back. So yes, a regular 1% would be bumped to 3%.

No, purchases on 10/26 do not count towards the annual purchases eligible to earn 1% Cashback Bonus. This means you would earn 2% cashback bonus, not 3%.

For all of you planning on doing some online shopping for this "extra 2%", Discover will not give you the extra 2% if the purchase doesn't POST on 10/26. Most times when you purchase online the transaction doesn't post until the ship date.

I went through this last time they advertised this. Emailed Discover before I bought and asked about the discrepancy that would likely occur in dates. Discover emailed back that there was no worry...I'd still get the 2%. After my statement posted and I checked the dates, nothing I bought posted on the date I purchased. I called Discover to ask how they would know that I purchased on the correct day. They told me they didn't "have a way to track that". She said she would "adjust" my account and give me the 2%.

 

You will have to call or email Discover to get your extra 2% because it likely won't have today's date. I jumped through a lot of hoops to get my extra 8 bucks...but I did it out of principle. Be prepared to spend your time trying to earn your "extra reward".
