So in order to get this "deal" you have to be a Discover card holder. If you are already a cardholder then the email is automatically sent out to card members. So this is definitely targeted.
And unnecessary to post, since cardholders get it already. And it's in the wrong forum. This isn't a deal. It's not even a freebie.

I just want to notify the folks if they missed an email. It's not a freebie., but it can save few bucks if planned properly.

Costco takes discover. I'm looking at it being shown as an option during checkout right now. You thinking of American Express?

how many credit cards do you guys have? I own 4 and it's annoying to manage them. I'm thinking about canceling two of them.

Agree, NOT a deal. Discover cardholders are well aware of what their 5% categories are, and are bugged to activate when the time rolls along anyway.
