New Discover It Bonus Offer. (Details below.)

New Discover It Bonus, Softcard $20 Deal, Dubai, Staples Gift Card & More

Here are a few items for you this Sunday including a new deal I haven’t mentioned on the site before and a new sign up offer from Discover. I am trying to work out ways to post smaller deals that I see without making full blog posts out of them. Stay tuned!

  • As you may have seen at the top of every post on the site, I am holding a huge reader appreciation giveaway. To enter, simply head over to this post and leave a comment with a tip for other readers. It takes less than 30 seconds! The contest ends at 11:59pm Pacific on 10/20!
  • Softcard, is offering a $20 Amazon gift card when you link and use a credit card on your account. Apparently there is no limit as to the number of cards which can be used. You can see the offer here and see strategies for maximizing the deal on Slickdeals. Offer ends 10/31/14.
  • I started the morning by getting free water and Visa gift cards at Staples. In case you haven’t heard, Staples is offering a $20 rebate with the purchase of Visa gift cards starting today. The promotion runs through 10/25/14.
  • Yesterday I covered a really unique and relatively unknown way of seeing Dubai from the water. It is incredibly cheap too. Take a look!
  • Tired of hearing about the Chase Ink cards? The 70,000 online offer is supposed to expire today. Remember that this offer has already available in branches for a couple of months. Most likely you will still be able to get it at the bank after the online app goes dead. (Although that is not guaranteed.)
  • There is a new Discover It bonus sign up offer through Amazon. (Direct, non-affiliate link.) The new Discover It bonus includes a $100 Amazon gift card after your first purchase along with 0% APR for 14 months. Currently the public offer doesn’t have a sign up bonus (other than 0% APR), so this may be good for someone looking to get a Discover It for the 4th quarter bonus. From time to time Discover does have a cash bonus offer (up to $150) for signing up, however it hasn’t been around for awhile. This is the best offer currently available as far as I know.

That is it for tonight. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  1. Thanks for all the info. Got in on the $20 Staples rebate. Unfortunately they apparently had a huge run on totally free water on Saturday – gone within a couple hours. Pretty funny.

    I’d been meaning to ask you about the Softcard/Amazon deal. I have 6 cards set up on my LG phone that I bought to sign up for Serve, but tempted to have my spouse do it to. Just hope that Amazon gift cards actually come through. Looks like on SlickDeals that nobody has gotten theirs yet.

    Also in for my second Ink Plus. Hope I get approved, given that my first was over a year ago and is a MC (not Visa). Also hope that referring myself (from MC) works. 🙂

    I’m not sure what I think about Discover. $100 sign up (Amazon) isn’t much, but better than nothing. The 5% bonus category is nice (ALL online retailers in 4Q?), but is it enough for me to get excited about (relative to other options)?? Maybe their shopping portal deals are enough to push me over the edge? Are they that good compared to UR portal and others?

    • I believe the Ink referral says you can’t refer yourself, but who knows if that is enforced or not.

      As for the Discover, I often find their portal has the best cash back rate. Add to that the ongoing 5% deals and bonus promotions like their “Pick a Store 5%” going on and I think it is definitely a good card to have.

      I signed up for a $150 offer early in 2014 and have never seen it go higher than that. If you are looking to take advantage of the 5% 4th quarter online purchases bonus, then it may be a good time to apply since we don’t know if/when the $150 cash back is returning.

      This is not the best offer ever, but it also is pretty close.

  2. can this be clubbed with referral bonus ? I have a discover card and planning to refer my wife so we both will earn 50 (100 in total).

    • No. By applying for the Amazon offer through their link you won’t be receiving the referral bonus. It is one or the other. If you can get cash back, then that is probably better.

  3. Good find on the Discover It card, I signed up last year when the offer was $150 statement credit. It’s too bad the card doesn’t have a regular/decent sign up bonus since it is a great rotating cash back card with access to the Shop Discover portal which has some great offers.

    As a blogger, I like doing “random news” posts that encompass several small deals/promos/stories so I don’t post several small posts. Good luck with the reader giveaway. 🙂

    • Yeah I signed up last year with the $150 offer as well. The best I can tell it hasn’t been around for six months or so. I am sure a lot of people may want to sign up to get the 4th quarter bonus, so $100 at Amazon is better than nothing.

      As for the deals, I have been thinking about that, but I often see really short term deals that may not warrant a blog post and may be gone by the time I do a daily recap. I’m still thinking over options, but I want to do a better job of sharing.

      Thanks Grant!
