New "get 5% Cashback Bonus" from Discovercard

The "Get more program" from Discovercard gives you an opportunity to get 5% cashback bonus in some popular categories that change quarterly, four times a year. Last quarter it was for medical purchase. This quarter it changes to gas and automotive purchase. Here is the detail...

From April 6, 2006 to June 30, 2006, you can get 5% cashback bonus if you use your discovercard to make gas and automotive purchases. The qualified automotive merchants include Autozone, Pep Boys, Firestone, Sears auto center and Midas. And all gas purchase and car washes are considered eligible.

It seems less attractive since lots of people have other cards like citi dividend and chase cash plus which provide 5% rebate in gas purchase all year long. However, if your car's maintenance due happens to fall within this period or you need buy some new parts for your car, you may consider to pay a visit to the above stores and see how much extra bonus you can get.

Check out my review of the Discover Cashback program that I wrote recently. If you only use the Discover card for these promotional purchases and take your reward in the form of a gift card, your reward can be as much as 10% back. Not bad.

The regular cashback program? Not so good.

Also, a lot of people hit the $300 limit on the Citi Dividend card, so this would be a good way to squeeze in some more cashback on gas.

I liked their double your reward before. I remembered the days when you can exchange $50 gift card of staples and sharper image withh $25 cashback. Now a lot of merchants just offer $25 for $20.
