Great Discover It 5% rebate categories starting January 1, 2021

From January 1 to March 31 Discover cardholders earn 5% cash back rewards:

  • Grocery stores
    • stand alone point-of-sale terminals inside building
    • Walmart grocery pick-up and delivery
    • Target grocery isn’t eligible
    • Convenience stores (7-11, Dollar Tree, etc.) and gas stations aren’t eligible
  • Walgreens stores or Walgreens.com
  • CVS stores or CVS.com

Rare opportunity:  5% cash back on gift cards
and Walmart.com grocery pick up orders.

There is a $1,500 max spend for the 5% rebate program. Amounts over that get only 1% rewards, which limits the extra cash back to no more than $120 per quarter. But that can add up to a bonus of $480 for the first year.

  1. Get 0% financing on all your purchases for 14 months from the date of account opening to help spread out the bill for a large purchase, plus the rewards.
  2. 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 complete, there will be no match.
