This is just a quick note to share with you the 2011 Discover More cash back rewards calendar for 2011. For those that are unaware, the Discover More card offers a base level of “up to 1% cash back” on all purchases, with 5% cash back in specific, rotating categories subject to quarterly enrollment and spending caps.
As with most other reward credit cards, you also have to opt-in for the bonus rewards on a quarterly basis. To do so, simply hop on over to Discover’s website and click on the “Cashback Bonus” link.
Here are the categories (and signup dates) for 2011:
- January-March: Travel and restaurants (signup now)
- March only: Grocery and drug stores (signup now)
- April-June: Home and fashion (signup March 1)
- July-September: Gas and hotels (signup June 1)
- October-December: Restaurants and fashion (signup September 1)
And remember… Aside for the 5% cash back rewards, Discover is currently running a couple of different 0% balance transfer promos with their More card.
If you’re looking for a nice long balance transfer promo period, they have a 0% for 18 months promo, though that one comes with a 3% balance transfer free.
