Re: Discover 2% back september 1-4

Discover needs to step up with their promotions. Their merchant fees are higher than Visa/Mastercards, so I really don't know why their rewards suck. 2% is great, only if it is on everything, all the time.

Re: Discover 2% back september 1-4

I take what I can.  My AMEX BCE isn't here yet, so using this for groceries was good for me, even though it wasn't 3% like AMEX.  This card will prove useful next quarter however.  I can do some serious damage with the holdidays coming up.  I just wish someone else had gas in rotation for the 4th quarter.

My Wallet:
AMEX Platinum | Discover It $20.3k | Chase Sapphire Reserved $16k | Chase United $12k | AMEX SimplyCash Plus Business $11.6k | AMEX Schwab $9k | AMEX BCEP $8.2k | Citi Costco Anywhere Visa $8k | Chase Amazon Visa $8k | Chase Sapphire Preferred $7k | Chase Freedom $5k | Citi Simplicity $5k | Paypal Extras Platinum $5k | Wells Fargo $5k | Citi Best Buy $4.2k | Citi Visa Signature $3k | Care Credit $3k

IIRC Schwab is dead not sure about Fidelity what other 2% cards are there?

Not true. Discover interchange fee is mostly the same as Visa/MC. You might see merchant account (for small biz) to price Discover slightly higher. However on retail and acquiring bank (provider of merchant account) perspective, Discover charges just about the same as Visa/MC. In fact Visa/MC charge higher interchange fee for Signature/World.

There's the Capital One Venture Card, but it has a $59 annual fee. Then there's the Priceline Rewards Visa, but it's a visa signature, so it's somewhat harder to qualify for.

AMEX SPG - $8k
Citi AA Visa - $6.5k
Walmart Discover - $5.5k
Citi Forward - $3.9k
Discover More - $2.5k
Wells Fargo Cash Back - $1.9k
