Hey Awesome cash back!  Quick question. Do you also get the regular 1% plus the extra 5% on purchases, was thinking the shop discover percentage was in addition to the regular cash back. Am I assuming right?

The reps at Discover either don't know or don''t share that partial payments through shop discover still give full cashback.

 

Additionally, you're correct, I did get 1% CB on the $7500 I used on the Discover card. so that's another $75 I forgot to mention!

FYI on Sears purchases, its 10% + regular 1% thru tomorrow.  Also, a nice trick on Sears is to go on the gift card resell sites and buy Sears, Kmart or Lands End (they all the same company) gift cards at close to a 10% discount (pay for gift cards with a 2% cashback card to make it 12% xtra).  Then pay thru the shopdiscover portal with the gift cards.  You still get the full cash back.  Have done it several times, but always leave a little $5-$25 balance to charge to the discover after applying the gift cards.  Ordered a TV today, that added up to 23% off.  You will get an email from discover about 8pm Central Time on the 2nd day after purchase confirming additional cash back earned.

That's freakin awesome that you get the cash back on the full amount of purchase even though part of the payment was from another source. :smileyvery-happy:

If you had waited until October to buy your TV when Category purchases made it 5% cash back for Department Store (Sears) shopping, you would have gotten even more Cash back. hahaha :smileyvery-happy:

Dang, that's right:smileysurprised:...... But I guess it was just 22% anyway, because the regular 1% would just show up on the token discover charge.

Re: I love shop discover!

Did you apply for the Shop Your Way Rewards too? that's $1 savings for every 1000 pts, and points are earned in multiples sometimes.

 

So if you say buy all your new appliances through Sears, you could save a boat load of money combining Shop Discover, Sears GC and Shoop Your Way Rewards! :smileyvery-happy:
