5% rebate on gas purchases has arrived.
Discover it Credit Card saves cardholders 5% on up to $1500 in purchases at gas stations, wholesale clubs and on ground transportation (activation required) from January 1 through March 31, 2017.
All other purchases earn 1% cash rewards made with your Discover it card.
For new account holders Discover matches cash back rebates at the end of your first year, that’s up to 10% cash back (limits apply).
Note: if the account is closed before 12 billing cycles, there will be no match.
Best of all, Discover charges you no interest for 12 months from the date of your account opening, provided minimum payments are on purchases you make.
This feature is great to finance those larger purchases that may not be affordable with a single paycheck or could deplete your emergency nest egg.
You can redeem your cash rewards for cash at any time and with no minimums.
You can use your Discover it rewards just like cash, towards purchases at Amazon.com.
All these perks are given to the cardholder with NO annual fee!
