Good morning everyone, I have some great news to share. 1 year ago today, I signed up for Discover’s Double Cash Back Match promo on July 6, 2015. I didn’t know what to expect, but the year has flown by and I am happy to report that my bonus Double Cash Back just posted, for a total bonus of $1,024!
I didn’t realize that the year was up already until I logged into my Discover It online account and spotted a whopping $1,035.36 in cash back. I used my Discover It Credit Card a lot in June, but not that much!
After looking at my online statement, I spotted the $1,024 bonus from the Double Cash Back Match.
I looked through all of my Discover It Credit Card statements from April 2015 through July 2016 and added up the cash back amounts. My statements start on the 6th of every month and close on the 5th of every month, so some cash back amounts post in a different month than they were earned. Plus, some cash back posts 1-2 months later (such as the ApplePay 10% bonus), so the spreadsheet is kind of hard to read. I added up all the cash back amounts from the statements but I can not figure out where the extra $86.21 came from. I’m sure it is an error on my side. I didn’t spend a ton of money on my Discover It Credit Card over the last 12 months, but if you did, you should see a huge cash back bonus. Here is what each column means:
- 5% Cash Back – all purchases made at rotating 5% cash back category merchants
- Discover Deals – Shop Discover shopping portal + ApplePay bonus + refer-a-friend bonuses
- 1% Cash Back – all other purchases made at merchants
If you signed up for the Discover It Double Cash Back Match last July, you should see your bonus cash back post this statement. If you have any questions, please leave a comment below. Have a great day everyone!
P.S. A few days after writing this post, I received this email from Discover:
