*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

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 got the $50 checking acc bonus invite today via email. I already have 2 checking accounts elsewhere though. Wondering whether I should take up on this offer...

Same here - and I came to SD to see what the feel for it was. I'm not a fan of a debit card and I put virtually everything on my Discover card that I can already. The no-fee ATM is cool, but I have that thru an online bank already. But there is that $50 part dangling out there. yummy

My account has now been open a month and a half and I have not gotten the $50.

Of course, I hadnt heard of the bonus when I signed up. Im still crossing my fingers that I get it anyway. One poster said he did.

But, if I hadnt already opened it, I would wait for a bonus.

I think it will go national with some kind of cash incentive after they work the kinks out of it.

I havent even gotten my first reward despite 2 cycles but the rep says I should get my first rewards after my next discovercard closing date.

I use the card for all my small purchases, all my Aldi purchases and for small bill pays.

I have bought 1 item at the dollar store with it and a number of $3-4 purchases at Aldi but thats as far as Im willing to push the envelope as far as gaming the system.

But, $50= 500 transactions so the cash bonus offer is worth waiting for.

If I dont get the $50, it will probably take me over 4 years to earn $50.

I keep very little cash in my discover account because it doesnt pay interest and I replenish that cash via ACH from Ally Bank. Discover forces you to deposit a minimum $25 at a time, even after your account is open. And their transfer in is a day or two slower than ideal.

But, I like earning 10 cents when i shop at Aldi because in the past, I earned nothing.

Most Aldis do not accept credit cards of any type. Cash, debit or the Guvment EBT/food stamps card only.

Why? I wasnt entitled to the bonus.

I think my chances are greater by just waiting & hoping it shows up. But, its not looking good.
