Discover it Cash Back
Discover it Cash Back has a very good incentive program called “CashBack Match”. All the cashback you’ve earned in the first year after getting the card, will be matched by Discover, and the amount will be applied to your card. Basically, your cashback is doubled. If your total cashback for 12 months is $100, another $100 will be given to you by Discover after your 12th billing cycle.
For eligible purchases in restaurants, Amazon.com, gas stations and grocery stores (rotating categories), you can earn a cash back of 5% on the first $1500 spent per quarter. You have unlimited cash back of 1% on your other purchases.
To earn the bonus categories’ cash back, don’t forget to enroll quarterly or every three months.
With the Cashback Match incentive, you will be getting 10% cashback (5% original + 5% match) on the bonus categories, and your other purchases will earn 2% cashback (1% original + 1% match).
