Discover It Card, $100 Sign Up Bonus Plus Double Cash Back

The Discover It card is a cash back card that earns 1% cash back on all purchases and 5% on rotating bonus categories. But for the first 12 consecutive billing periods that your new account is open, they will match all of the cash back rewards you’ve earned and apply them to your account in the following one or two billing periods. So that makes this a 2% cash back card with rotating 10% bonus categories.

Discover It

Besides all this, they will also double any cash back you earn from Discover Deals, a cash back portal for Discover cardmembers that usually offers great cash back rates already.

Once you sign up, you will receive double cash back for the next 12 billing periods, but all the bonus cash back will be credited on the 13th billing period, which is the only bad thing about this deal. But it will be a lump sum.

So if you sign up now (my referral link) for the card, which you definitely should, you will receive $100 instead of the $50 after you make your first purchase within 3 months. I would get $100 as well. The card has had a $150 bonus in the past, but that was prior to the Double Cash Back Promo, so I don’t believe we’ll see it again any time soon.

Quarterly CashBack Bonus Categories

As mentioned above this card has rotating 5% CashBack Bonus Categories, that becomes 10% when doubled. The current category now through June 2016 is Restaurants and Movies. If you spend the maximum of $1,500 in these categories, you can earn $150 cash back per card. Not bad at all.

Here’s this year’s categories

  • Q1 – Gas & Ground Transportation (Ended)
  • Q2 – Restaurants & Movies (Current)
  • Q3 – Home Improvement Stores & Amazon.com
  • Q4 – Amazon.com & More

Keep in mind that you have to Activate these manually every quarter. But Discover will send you reminders by email, just in case you forget.

Can You Have More Than One Card?

The answer is yes. If you’ve had the card for more than one year, then you can apply again for a second card. This way you’ll now have $3000 in spend for quarterly bonus categories across two cards. And you’ll get the sign up bonus.

Get Referral CashBack

Once you have your own card, or if you already have it, then go here to send referrals of your own. You will get $50 per referral after the referee make a purchase within 3 months, up to $500 per calendar year and it will be doubled if you’re still within your first 12 months since opening the card. If you have your card, refer your spouse for example and that will be a total of $200 cash back after being doubled.

You can also find your referral link in your online account. Go to Rewards on top menu and select Refer a Friend. You can refer by email or just get the refer link. You can post your links in the comments below, but please also help our blog by sharing this post on social media. Post a link of the shared post on the website field in your comment. I’m not very strict on this requirement, but I would appreciate your appreciation.

    As noted in the offer details $50 Sign Up Bonus after first purchase within 3 months (Doubled to $100). That’s the best bonus right now for the card.

  9. When I clicked on your link and check the rates/fees/rewards page, it says $50 bonus rather than $100 bonus. Is there a new link you can share here?

    • Yes, if you click “See rates, rewards and other info” on the application page, you’ll see the offer

      TERMS OF CASHBACK BONUS OFFER: Get a $50 Cashback Bonus after you make your first purchase within 3 months of being approved. Promotional award will be applied within 8 weeks. The promotional award is in addition to the Cashback Bonus earned on all purchases.

      • So basically by signing up i get one $50 cashback in the first 8 week and the other $50 cashback after 12 months. Is that right?

        • Yes the sign up bonus is just $50 after first purchase within 3 months. Then in a year it will be matched along with all the other cash back that you have earned during the year. It should be a nice lump sum if you use your card a lot and max out bonus categories.

          I see the language in the article gets a bit confusing. I’ll edit it.

  10. Discover it referral- Send me an email at Happyblusky33@gmail.com, include your email address, and I will send you a referral link. You will earn $50 after your first purchase and another $50 (for double rewards) after 12 months of having your card!

  11. It’s only been around 10 months since I got my card. 2 more months and I should get a nice chunk of cash back 🙂

    Hopefully I can still get $100 by then when I sign up for my 2nd card.

    The amazon as a bonus category should be pretty nice too next quarter

    • The $50 bonus is available until the end of the year, but the Double Cash Back offer that makes it $100 might end before that. I don’t see an expiration date for that.

      • From ur referral link , I can’t find anywhere in the card application to mention the $50/$100 bonus after the first purchase. Does this mean the offer no longer valid?

        • Good question. Click on “See rates, rewards and other info” right under the card image. There you’ll find the following:

          “TERMS OF CASHBACK BONUS OFFER: Get a $50 Cashback Bonus after you make your first purchase within 3 months of being approved. Promotional award will be applied within 8 weeks. The promotional award is in addition to the Cashback Bonus earned on all purchases.”

          Let me know if it says the same thing on your end.

      • from what the CSR told me, as long as I received the $50 bonus, I’m assured of getting the other $50 on my 13th statement from registration. So far, Discover is one of my oldest cards and their customer service is one of the best, if not the best IME.

        here’s my refer a friend link in case one wants to sign up: https://refer.discover.com/s/aslt2

        Prosperity to us all this 2017 🙂
