*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.

Two links get from the flyers:

DiscoverBank.com/RewardsAreIn50 [DiscoverBank.com]
DiscoverBank.com/GetMoreFree50 [DiscoverBank.com]

Highlights of this new checking account:

FREE ATMs
FREE checks
No monthly fees
No minimum balance

Earn rewards:
10¢ on debit card purchase
10¢ on online bill pay
10¢ on checks written

http://slickdeals.net/f/5810796-Upcoming-Cashback-Checking-from-Discoverbank?v=1

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 looked into opening an account but didn't see anything about the bonus. The cashback bonus might be useful. For me on a given month I probably have like 5 bills to pay and could easily do 10-15 debit transactions. Its not much but it would add up.
Which link did you use to check for the bonus?

Presumably anyone that opens an account will get the $50 bonus. One poster on another thread did. Primarily because it was a by email offering rather than a national offering.

Eventually, it will go national and the $50 bonus will probably still be there.

I opened mine prior to hearing about the $50. So I hope I get it but if I hadnt already done it, I would wait to be sure.

Because $50 is probably 50+ months worth of 10 cents at a time.

They dont pay any interest. Your 10 cents is considered interest for the IRS.
(As is the $50)
And they sit on your deposit for a few days before giving it to you. I think my initial deposit was not available for 7 days despite being an ACH transfer in.

Exactly as Ive been saying all along.

That said, another guy got the $50 and he wasnt invited.

Im crossing my fingers I will.

And after 7/31 ? A new date and more invites.

This is going to go national but they want to work the kinks out without getting slammed first.

They sure send a bunch of checks out. Got 5 books in the mail. Took the leap of faith hoping I get the $50.

I have signed up for this using the link for the $50.00 bonus. ( and I had an invite on my Discover Card account )

I am wondering about any mentions of limitations regarding the cashback part of this account. I have received the initial welcome package and I didn't see anything about that. While I realize they might be ok with unlimited from the use of the debit card, ( Discover will clear about 1 billion this year from interchange fees, even after rewarding card holders ) However, I cant possibly imagine there wont be some kind of monthly limits on the bill pay and check writing part of the promotion.

Looking for any solid info anyone may have.

No limits but abusers will get letters and eventually their account closed per a CS Rep.

I did not get the offer on my account, but did sign up through the link provided in this forum thread. Does anyone know if I would still be eligible for the bonus? If not, at the very least this account is worth it with the .10 per transaction bonus you get for using the card.

Based on my own experience, I didn't get my invitation with $50 bonus, but it turned out that Discover gave me $50 bonus afterwards (to be more specific, around one and a half of a month. It was on a weird day because it's not on any of my statement dates). So probably you'll still get your bonus!

I just noticed the invitation link was for applying discover credit card rather than checking account. I apologize, links removed.
