July 12th can’t get here fast enough. That’s the day our no annual fee Discover it Cash card gives us a thousand dollar present, $1,010.70 to be exact. We’ve earned over a thousand dollars in cash back throughout the year and now Discover is going to match it all. The one year anniversary cashback match is one of the best benefits of any credit card.
Top 3 Ways to Earn Cash Back
There are several ways to earn cash with the Discover card, all of which gets matched. Here are our favorites.
5% Cash Back Categories
Discover has some great category bonuses each quarter. Warehouse Clubs, Restaurants, and Amazon are core categories for most people’s spending. You earn 5% cash on these purchases up to $1,500 spent each quarter. After you get it matched, you’ll have earned 10% back. This can save you up to $600 on $6,000 spent in the first year.
Discover Deals (Shopping Portal)
Discover has a shopping portal called Discover Deals that offers cash back at nearly 150 retailers like Walmart. Most of them offer 5% cash back. By the time you get it matched it becomes 10%. Plus, you still earn cash back on the Discover card for purchase, in addition to the cash from Discover Deals.
Refer A Friends
The public application for the Discover card has no sign up bonus. But, when you use the refer a friend program, you earn $50 and they earn $50. Again, this is cash back and will be matched if you’re a new card member.
You can learn more about the card by reading our Discover it Cash Review. Or, you can apply for the card using our REFER A FRIEND LINK. You’ll get $50 when after you make your first purchase and we’ll get $50. (thanks in advance)
