New Discover $500 cashback bonus offer...

[ Edited ]

Just received a promo in the mail for $500 cashback for spending $3,000/month for the next several (6) months.  Says something about wanting me to switch over some of my spending onto the Discover card.

 

Asks me to call in to enroll.  

 

Anyone gonna take them up on this deal?  (Can't imagine anyone would)

Did the offer say 3000 per month for so many months, or did it just say spend three thousand in so many months? I've only seen the former offers and recently ignored the one they sent me. It was equal to about 3% cashback, but it is just too much of a hassle. If you miss the spend for even one month you get nothing.

Just browsed it when I got home last night, but I think it was $3,000 in the next 6 months.  Like the Citi Forward, I'm assuming it's per month.  I'll look when I get downstairs later and call them to confirm it.

 

Will post back.

Navigatethis12 is right.

Re: New Discover $500 cashback bonus offer...

Pretty much, except they want $3,000 per month for 6 consecutive months.  Basically, $18K for $500 cashback.  I wouldn't call this as much an "offer" as en masse direct marketing.

 

They should just send this to all of their cardmembers and hope 1 or 2 in 10,000 will bite.
