Re: Discover "Switch Now"

Yeah! Discover's cashback really does suck. Wonder how they even got recognized as the "cashback" card?!? Lol

May I ask why?  You must do at least some online shopping this holiday season.

Discover isn't really widely accepted here on the west coast. It's either Mastercard or VISA. I always seem to run into that problem of "Sorry we don't accept Discover" so I end up charging a different card...my VISA and having a balance on more cards than I like.

Re: Discover "Switch Now"

HUH...I am also on the west coast, Bay Area to be exact and I don't seem to have that problem.  For example, last quarter was gas.  Every single major gas station I have seen takes Discover.  This quarter is online shopping and almost all major online retailers accept it.  I guess I have so many reward cards now that I only use Discover for bonus categories + ShopDiscover for maximum cashback.  Oct 26th is another 2% back that stacks with the 5%.  Hell just pay your cell phone bill online and get 7% back.  I respect your decision, just giving my .02.

Re: Discover "Switch Now"

Yea. I'm in So Cal area. I hate using my card at the gas station...unless I really have to! I don't see a point in paying an extra 45 cents for gas b/c I used my card. I'll keep my account open, I just won't use it as much. Plus, I have a much higher limit on my Freedom card. UTL purposes.
