Silly question, but how does this work? Will I have to enter a pin or will it be like a normal transaction where I just sign but don't need a pin? Also, is the 120 max per day, or per billing cycle?? Thanks.


No pin required, you just hit the "yes" button when it asks if you want cash back,  then sign as usual.  The 120 max per day is up to your cash limit I do believe.

that's similar to sam's club cc - hit yes for cash back, then choose the amount.

it counts as a purchase rather than a cash advance

BofA visa $9.4k ... BofA Cash Rewards visa sig $10k ... Cap 1 Venture1 visa sig $10k ...
Chase Freedom visa $10k ... Macy's $1.5k ... Macy's Amex $5k ... Sam's Club $6.3k

In the card member agreement it says this is a benefit and does not count as a cash advance .... I have never had to pay interest on my cash back on my discover.
