This is a developing story and I will update this post as necessary.
Good evening everyone. I just received a few emails from Discover regarding the ApplePay 10% bonus promotion. I purchased a $500 Visa Gift Card along with a few other items at Walgreens on 9/16/2015. Discover is honoring the VGC purchase and will reward me with 10% cash back.
The following day, I bought another $500 VGC along with a candy bar. Discover is honoring the VGC purchased on 9/17/2015.
Unfortunately, the very next day, I bought a $50 Southwest Airlines gift card. Discover is not going to honor the cash back for my gift card purchased on 9/18/2015.
On September 18, Frequent Miler wrote Discover’s Deal of the Year: Excludes gift cards. Has anyone received an email from Discover showing a gift card purchase was honored on or after September 18? I wonder if Discover will send me an email for every purchase I made after September 18 (that would be several emails). A few weeks ago, I wrote Discover It + ApplePay + Walgreens = 22% Cash Back for BART Clipper Card Reloads. I wonder if my BART Clipper Card reloads will qualify, since they are technically not gift cards. My Discover It Credit Card statement is closing tonight/tomorrow, so I should be able to see what the cash back statement looks like.
If you have any questions, please leave a comment below. Have a great evening everyone!
