I receive targeted offers in the mail from Discover seemingly once a week. It is always for the standadr $100 signup bonus. Does Discover ever offer more? Personally, I won't pull the trigger on anything below $300.

$300? I wouldn't even consider applying for a card that I didn't want unless it was more than $1,000. It's simply not worth the hassle for me.


Where is this $1,000 signup bonus card? I'll take it.

I had a targetted Amex platinum offer for 100k MR points with 3k spend in 3 months. The spend isn't an issue, but I passed on it since I don't really want or need an Amex platinum at the moment.


100k MR points is easily worth much more than $1,000... probably more like ~$1,600-$2,000+ if used properly (business/first class redemptions).

I was just approved for the Discover More on the 14th of September.  I called them and this promotion was not on my card, but I was transferred to a supervisor who manually put this promotion on there for me since I am a new customer.  Thanks OP for the info.
