Discover's 2nd Quarter, where you guys going to eat this weekend?

I am STOKED for this quarter because this is where most of my spend goes. The verbiage on the site says "cafes" is included so I wonder if that includes Starbucks? What about you guys?

With my Visas and MCs, Starbucks usually coded as "Restaurant - Restaurants," but sometimes "Restaurant - Bars & Cafes".   Discover has its own quirks, so who knows?   I wonder if Caterers count as Dining?

 

As for me this weekend, I'm not sure yet.   Me and the SO will probably dine out somewhere local and we'll be using Discover at the bar tonight.

Sbux counts for my csp I believe. I think pretty much everything counts for restaurant if they do food.

Can't believe my csp is beat out by this. But stoked.(most I get per csp point is 1.6x2). Likely gonna hit the cap with ease I think. The only cap I can. Glad I got all those CLI on discover recently 🙃!

Makes me cry a little(a lot) on the inside when I see freedom is 5x next quarter and I'd make a killing on UR points. Why oh why did I not double app in August :'(

Just got back from getting KFC... one extra crispy breast and a side for $3.49 + tax.  (I'm a big spender)

 

Smiley LOL

 

(Over the quarter it will add up, though...)

Gas spending has gone down...

 

But not my lunch time at work because I'm too lazy to make my lunch the night before.  SCORE. EXCITE.  Panda Express. Weinerschintzel. Dominos. Local Sushi Joint. Yass.

Fwiw. I've had pizza from all over, new York, Chicago, Denver. Lazy moon in Orlando by ucf is some amazeballs pizza.

 

 

Edit: In case that wasn't clear, lazy moon is my preferred post gym workout meal and is where I'll be using my card this weekend/quarter 😂

Oh, if reloading my SBX card online counts, I'll be maxxed out by tax day Smiley Wink

 

Sory to see gas go, but that means more usage on my new Sams card will go up.  And I guess I'll be going out to eat more often.

Fiinally some good categories this quarter with Disc dining and Freedom Groceries, far and away the 2 most useful categories.  Starbucks, Peets and all coffee shops have counted as the 5% for me on both Freedom and Discover.

I have been super excited for this quarter! 5% and double cash on dinining out and 5% on groceries through Freedom.  This is going to be a good one!
