Discover 2015 Bonus Categories

Discover has released some of the details of their 5% quarterly promotions for 2015. Lets take a look at each quarter and what they have released.

Quarter 1

Discover 2015 Bonus Categories
Bonus 1st Quarter

This bonus is pretty self explanatory. We can definitely expect gas stations and ground transportation companies such as bus, taxi and trains should/may be included.

Quarter 2

Bonus 2nd Quarter

While this will most likely include restaurants and entertainment venues, they also talk about maximum amounts that can be earned. This could either be a GOOD or BAD thing.

Quarter 3

Bonus 3rd Quarter

Once again they include that language about the “maximum you can earn”. While I can’t speak to that, historically this type of language is referring to home improvement stores.

Quarter 4

Bonus 4th Quarter Bonus

This has historically included all online shopping, however the details here are vague.


While the details for some of the quarters are vague, Discover has released some of the 2015 bonus information. I find it most interesting when they mention “maximum amounts to be announced later”. Historically you can earn a 5% bonus on up to $1,500 per quarter. The “maximum amounts” language could mean they are making changes to that amount this year. Of course the change could either be positive or negative.

You should be able to see all of these details by logging in and clicking on the 5% cashback bonus link on your homepage. At this point it remains to be seen whether the changes in some of the terms are good or bad, so we will have to see. Either way it is nice to get a sneak peak at next year’s bonus categories!

  1. @milestomemories
    any suggestion for buying GCs at gas stations please?

    -no paypal… received warning letter.
    -VRs are discontinued.
    -greendots are discontinued.
    -OVs not accepted at WM?


    • Gas station MS is a very local thing. I haven’t found any gas stations locally that will allow the purchase of GCs with CCs. The only real way to find out is trial and error. What area are you in? Maybe another reader will be able to help.

      • thanks but im not looking for a gas station which accepts CCs. im looking for the actual producut to purchase.
        again… paypal warning, VRs & greendots discontinued, OVGCs not accepted at WM.
        suggestions for product to buy?
