Nice! You've read my mind. I was just saying to BF the other day that Best Buy and Circuit City let you order online and pick up in store, so that would be great! I am happy to hear they are on the list. Can't wait to get my card so I can log in to the shopdiscover site. If you aren't logged in, you can't really see much!
I have the Open Road card and love it!
I've made 2 purchases with it so far: a dvd at BestBuy that I bought from ShopDiscover.com and simply went to the store and picked it up, and a fill up at a gas station. With those 2 purchases I have already racked up $5 in cash back.
Make sure to check shopdiscover.com. They actually have good merchants there with 5-10 percent back. I live within half a mile of Best Buy, so I simply order through shopdiscover.com with in store pickup as the option to rack up 5 percent every time.

Thanks for the advice. I think I'll be in good shape. During the month I run a lot through my cards, but always PIF, or like i said a portion may accidentally report, but next month PIF. Oooh, CC and BB on the site, wait till I tell dear BF. He's a computer geek and also into the big fancy TV's and all that stuff. Hehe. I must confess I do love blu-ray movies!

As long as you don't get into trouble, they don't care if you carry a balance, of course you need to pay above the minimum. Don't let the balance just simmer for years, that will get any CCC mad at you.And you'll be pleased to know that Circuit City is also on shopdiscover.com I think they offer a 5% back, I dont remember.

Same story here. I had a Discover in college and defaulted on it. I loved that card...and they were so nice in every letter they sent trying to collect on it. But seriously, don't mess up with discover because it has been 4 years and they denied me last year. I want it back bad!
