Discover 10% or $12% off gift cards

I was thinking since this quarter is 5% off all online store and DiscoverShop gives you 5% that's total of 10% to buy Walmart gift cards and use them at Sams Club/Sams Gas !!!

 

Oct 6th 2% + 5% + 5% =12% giftcards at Walmart or any online ShopDiscover.

 

It should work right ????

Cap1 QS $11500, Freedom $5000K, Slate $8000 Amex Sky $2000K, Discover IT $4400, BCE $8800, NFL $1500, Lowes $7000

Starting Score: 0
Current Score: 742
Goal Score: 800

No. If you read the ShopDiscover terms for Walmart, it specifically says it does not cover gift cards. And the 5% quarterly bonus does not apply to purchases "made at warehouse clubs, wholesale distributors, or discount stores" which includes Walmart.

The best way to do it is buy Walmart gift cards at a gas station when Discover is doing a 5% gas quarter, and then use the gift cards when Walmart does the 10 cent gas rollback. The hardest part is finding a gas station that sells Walmart gift cards.

Does this mean all stores come under this category ? If we choose target, jcp, old navy or macys ??

It depends on how the purchase is coded. All of those places are also on ShopDiscover. If you have made a purchase at one of them in the past, find it in your transaction history, click the arrow icon next to it to see more information, and look for the Merchant Category Description. Walmart shows up as "DISCOUNT STORES." Sam's Club shows up as "WHOLESALE CLUBS." SuperTarget shows up as "GROCERY STORES AND SUPERMARKETS." Not sure how regular Target shows up, but I would guess it would be the same as Walmart.

The 5% gas is only for gas purchased at the pump, so this wouldn't work either!

Macys and JCP wre department stores. Stores like Target and Old Navy aren't.

This is wrong.  It is 5% back on anything purchased at a gas station.  No where does it say "at the pump".  I have even contacted CS about this and they say it's anything at a gas station ie chips, soda and beer.
