Update 11/15 - For people who applied and got the message that "Code successfully applied" - This offer is still good. i dropped a secure message to Discover and got this confirmation in writing. they confirmed that offer was applied to my account Since i met the requirement on 11/13, i got following reply - "As long as your account meets these eligibility requirements you will receive the bonus to your account by 12/13/2015. In the event that you do not see the $300 credit post to your account, please reply to this message or call us. We will need to escalate this to the appropriate department to investigate, which can take 4-6 weeks to complete."

UPDATE 12/03/2015

Hello I have met my direct deposit through my employer on 11/13 and contacted Discover through email below is the response from them....Everyone will get their bonus as long as they met requirement.

Promotional bonuses are credited within 30 days of meeting the requirements; therefore the bonus will be credited to your account balance on or before 12/13/2015. I have included the terms and conditions of your offer below: "


Update: 12/8

If it is true, then I will feel really sad as a current checking account owner of Discover...
How about closing current checking account first?
