Was already familiar with the Discover 5% Cashback bonus for online shopping but was not aware that this included Amazon gift cards. Just saw a banner on shopdiscover site pushing this specific perk. I searched some of the 5% SD threads and didn't see this mentioned.

Discover's quarterly bonus is 5% for online shopping, so this includes amazon.com

Up to $1500 in purchase so the maximum cashback you'll get is $75.
The 5% for online shopping is also up to $1500 in purchase. I maxed that out a long time ago..

Btw Chase Freedom is still doing 5% cashback for Amazon until the end of December.

What? Not at all. Most cash back offers through online malls do (i.e. ShopDiscover) but I have never had any standard CC reward stipulate anything about gift cards. In fact I do it all the time to shift my spending through 5% back categories.

This is all extremely standard. Not sure why we need a thread.

I've never seen their 5% quarterly exclude anything except maybe apple or Bose??

Whenever they do 5% at restaurants or gas stations I max out by buying gift cards for the following quarters.

When they aren't doing 5% on restaurants or home stores, i go to the gas station or grocery store and buy those particular gift cards. Ie acme, shoprite, cvs and purchase a prepay gas card to earn the 5%. It doesnt tell discover what i purchased, just that i made a purchase at a gas station or grocery store. Been doing this for years, but I can see some people not realizing it so its a good reminder for people to pay attention. BTW department stores, purchasing prepay tmobike cards, apple iTunes gift cards etc earn 5%.

When does the 5% for online shopping end?

What's special with this one, any purchase on amazon is eligible for 5% CB, as it is a online purchase. I don't think here is any additional CB for purchase on amazon.

Special because typically cashbacks do not work on gift cards, and this does at 5%. Cool

Now the real question is does this work with the Chase 5% back on Amazon ? since I have zero APR I'd rather load that card so I have time to pay it off.

Thats online cashback portal. CC cashback works on everything including GC/prepaid card.

why bother......with amazon visa you get 3% anytime, chase freedom you get amazon 5% from time to time, as well as discover. Chances are you won't have any opportunities to use the giftcards if you get now.
