Re: Discover 5% category "online shopping"?

Do you think this would work on rent payments? My mom's apartment complex takes rental payments online and does not charge a fee. 5% cashback on $1700 rent would be nice for a few months :smileywink:

Re: Discover 5% category "online shopping"?

Last December I paid for ebay seller fees using my discover card, and I was surprised to see the fees counted as an online purchase.

 

Hope this year online bill payments work!

I wonder which "utilities" will and will not qualify.

Aww man, last year I used the card for travel and government stuff, and got a nice cashback with it.  But still, it's a great category to have!

 

Btw, nice Alaska Airlines Visa you got there, broseph.  I went to UW for undergrad.  #Go Huskies!
