Has anyone else checked their Discover Deals recently? This is the first time I've looked in August, but the 5-10% off at the many online stores which I had been used to since ShopDiscover seems to have been significantly reduced (I mean number of stores, not percentage offered). I know even last week, I was still seeing Sears, Tigerdirect, etc. Which would be a pity, because that was a big reason I was using my Discover card so often. Possibly as a reaction to the double cashback bonus for the year they were offering? Here's hoping it's a temporary thing...

Edit: Ah, nevermind, perhaps. It's probably because the 5% category for this quarter is "department and hardware stores" (+ Amazon) which would cover a lot of those stores already.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

As of last night, most of the cashback offers were still there. This seemed to have happened this morning.

I did a chat with Discover and was told " Currently our Discover Deals specialists are aware of an error that is causing the merchants listed to no longer be showing. We are working on a fix to get them back up as soon as possible! I am very sorry for the inconvenience, it is recommended to check again in a couple of days to see if it is back up. "

Ah, thank you for doing what I suppose I should have done first. Good to know!

The quarter category should have no effect on the Discover Deals site (as double dipping is encouraged). Hopefully this is just an error.

This scared the heck out of me. It was the main reason I still bought anything from Best Buy or GameStop. I wanted the bonus via Discover. Likely would drop all three brands if the deals were gone for good. I certainly appreciate Apple.com being one of the deal stores too. Hope they all come back.
