Keep in mind that many of the restrictions and exclusions are more YMMV.


Don't plan a purchase solely expecting to get cash back on something listed as excluded, but don't be surprised if you do.

I use the eastbay, nike, and finishline 10 percent bonus. 


I am a sneaker head and athletic junkie *play lots of softball, basketball, golf, and running* so those 3 stores alone make it worth it.

Re: What stores are ShopDiscover good for?

I use ShopDiscover for ordering flowers and get 15-20% cashback.  I also used it to purchase a new laptop from Dell and it ended up being a great deal between their clearance price, free shipping, and 5% cashback.
