*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

Terms of the cashback are changing for the worse. Must accumulate $20 worth before it can be added to your other discover cashback.

Got is private message from Discover Bank last week. It appears they are going away from adding our 10 cents per transaction every month and only allowing us to cash in when we accumulate $20 worth.That's 200 transactions. I only use it 4-6 times per month which means over 3 years before I can cash in.Im not sure it worth bothering with so Im considering closing the account.I did get the $50 opening bonus and the 10 cents per since the account has been opened.I guess I might shoot them an email telling them Im considering closing my account because of it.It doesn't appear to be account specific although I did have to log into my account to read it.That is, I haven't been abusing it in any way. I mostly just use the card when shopping at Aldi or the dollar store.---------------------Thank you for choosing a Discover Cashback CheckingSM account.

I got a promo for this account I think offering $100 or $50 for a recurring direct deposit of over $250.

I don't have a paycheck so I did a paypal transfer in for $250 and will just cross my fingers that it works.

Im still using the account for some billpays and debit card transactions at Aldi and the dollar store.
