Re: Discover It 5% category

I'm not going to go out of my way just to spend and get 5% cashback.

 

The category blows, quite simply.

Not only does it blow, but it's just one category. No options? Just that?

 

And if people have to resort to buying gift cards to places they'd go anyway, isn't that what got some companies to reduce their "reward structures"?

I'll just pas, and SD for anything other than my utilities.

Does "It" have a special rewards rate for utilities?  I thought Discover was doing 2% on some of their cards as a promo that ended last year.
