Discover Card Birthday 2% Cash Back

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

We all should expect one thing for our birthday this year and that is an endless supplies of “Happy Birthday!” posts on Facebook. Be ready for 100’s of posts of some people you do not even know posting away at your older age. You can also look forward to a fun 2% promotion from Discover Card this year and to get more than a fourth of a percentage point from them is a huge deal. They have become rather greedy with their Cash Back these last few years. It takes a lot of 2% to add up to that $50 redemption into your checking account or to put on your account statement but we can dream can’t we? Dream especially big on your birthday because you can spend up to $500 for this 2% Cash Back and that is a pretty good present to yourself. Maybe a few pairs of jeans or that lawn mower you have always wanted.

Earn 2% Cashback Bonus on up to $500 in purchases from the first day of the birthday promotion month for which you are enrolled (or the date on which you sign up, whichever is later) through the last day of that month. This will be in addition to any promotional Cashback Bonus you may earn. For Open Road cardmembers, you will earn this 2% Cashback Bonus in addition to the 2% Cashback Bonus you earn on the first $250 in gas and restaurant purchases for the month. These purchases will not count toward your total annual purchases to determine your tier level. Allow up to 5 weeks for this reward to be added to your Cashback Bonus account. See Cashback Bonus Program Terms and Conditions for further details about your reward program.
