Good Card for Bargain Hunters
I recently received the Discover ‘It’ card and it has been great. My reasons for choosing this card are as follows:
- The Discover ‘It’ card + Amazon. I can apply Discover reward points toward new purchases at Amazon. I also receive extra incentive [3x reward points] when making purchases through Amazon. I can also use earned reward points to help pay off the balance [best use of points!]
- The ‘Shop Discover’ store. Certain retailers provide bonus reward points when making purchases through the Shop Discover website. The number and type of retailers rotate each quarter, so for example, home improvement retailers might be this quarter, and clothing/jewelry retailers might be next quarter. Most rewards are in the 2-5% cashback bonus range, though some are as high as 10-20% bonus!
- The Discover card also provides price protection guarantees. This program is popular around the holidays because it allows the purchaser to make purchases ahead of well-advertised sales [think Black Friday], and have the difference refunded. No more waiting in line for out-of-stock ‘doorbuster’ deals!
