$50 bonus for new Discover Cashback checking account *For Discover Card Member Only*
*For Discover Card Member Only*
Received two flyers from Discover today. Both of them indicate Discover bank is giving $50 to new customers who open a Discover Cashback Checking. I am not sure if this offer is exclusive, but there is no invitation code given.
I opened my account before I knew about any $50 bonus. I hope & expect I will still get the $50 however, I fully expect this to go "national" eventually with everyone getting the $50. So If I hadnt already opened mine, I would wait for some kind of "offical" invitation or something.
Simply because $50 is more than 4 years worth of 10 cent at a time cashback transactions.
Its a good deal just on 10-12 10 cent cashbacks per month alone. (Im only going to use it for small transactions and at Aldi where they dont accept any kind of credit cards, debit only)
The link doesn't indicate any $50 bonus offer. However, if you are eligible for this offer, you may see this note on the top of the page once you log in to Discover from that link.
"A special offer just for new Discover checking customers... Get an account opening bonus when you open a Discover Cashback CheckingSM Account."
Clicked link, clicked the open account button on the page, logged in, saw the "special bonus" message at the top, applied, had to call in to verify address, verified with the rep that I'd get $50. He said from July 31st, within 4-6 weeks I will get $50. Only requirement is that my initial opening deposit goes through, no direct deposit requirement, etc. No fees either.
Thumbs up and repped, OP. Easiest $50 I've ever made.
Edit: just signed my fiance up for one too, didn't have to call, auto approved. +$50!
Just talked to the lady from Discover Bank, after you log into your account (credit card) if you see "NEW! Cashback Checking - no monthly fees " under your credit card line then you were invited to this new debit card they are giving and will get the $50.
I am a card member, but I do not see the bonus at the links provided in the OP. So this might be not only for the members, but also for the members with discover card ending 9954.
lol, forgot to hide the 4-digit ending.
When I logged in, I couldn't see anywhere mentioned $50 bonus as well. However, in the top of the page, it shows "A special offer just for new Discover checking customers... Get an account opening bonus when you open a Discover Cashback CheckingSM Account." I guess you are eligible for the bonus if you can see it. FYI
One poster on the other thread said he signed up without an invitation but he got the $50 anyway after about a month and a half.
I signed up before I knew about the $50 and the rep I talked to suggested I wouldnt qualify for the $50. So we will see.
If I had it to do over again...Id wait for a personal invitation because $50 is 500 transactions.
They are really slow to fund your account. Future transfers in are slow and the card comes 3 days before the pin. And of course no interest but the cashback you earn is reported as if its interest to the IRS. (As opposed to cash back on the discovercard, that NOT taxed)
