Discover Cardmembers Earn 5% Cashback Bonus at Gas Stations

08:00 EDT Tuesday, July 09, 2013

RIVERWOODS, Ill. (Business Wire) -- With summer vacation in full swing and road travel on the rise, Discover is making it easier for cardmembers to earn extra rewards at the pump. Now through Sept. 30, 2013, Discover cardmembers can sign up to earn 5% Cashback Bonus on up to $1,500 in purchases at gas stations.

Cardmembers can earn 5% Cashback Bonus by simply signing up for 5% online at discover.com, or by calling 1-800-DISCOVER (347-2683). After making $1,500 in gas station purchases, Discover cardmembers still automatically earn their standard Cashback Bonus on all other purchases.

“Whether taking a road trip or going to the local pool, summer is ideal for spending quality time with family and friends,” said Dana Traci, vice president of rewards at Discover. “This quarter, we're focused on helping cardmembers get more rewards to get where they're going.”

Additionally, as the 2013-2014 school year quickly approaches, Discover cardmembers also can enjoy extra savings on back-to-school purchases made through ShopDiscover, the exclusive online shopping portal featuring more than 200 top retailers. From July 18 to Sept. 4, 2013, Discover is leveraging its relationships with nearly 40 merchant partners to increase Cashback Bonus savings to help families save more on items such as clothing, shoes and school supplies. Some of the online retailers increasing Cashback Bonus during this period include:

  • Finish Line – 15% Cashback Bonus (up from 10%)
  • Lands' End – 10% Cashback Bonus (up from 5%)
  • Walgreens – 10% Cashback Bonus (up from 5%)
  • Kohl's – 10% Cashback Bonus (up from 5%)

“During the back-to-school season, we know families are looking to make smart spending decisions, especially those with kids going off to college,” added Traci. “ShopDiscover offers cardmembers significant value all year long, but we know cardmembers appreciate the extra convenience and value some of our merchants bring by increasing Cashback Bonus during this busy time.”

For a complete list of merchants offering between 5% - 20% Cashback Bonus, please visit ShopDiscover.com.
