Discover It Cash Back Rewards, Bonuses & Fees

5% cash back is good amount. However this depends on your purchases at all. For example grocery is a good opportunity for every consumers. However I don’t think other options are good enough. Why? Personally I have no business with Amazon.com, Gas Stations and Uber & Lyft. Besides I don’t visit restaurants very often. You should calculate your annually purchases well and decide to get/use the card or not. If this card is going to be beneficial for you just 3 months, it won’t worth it at all.

You are going to earn 1% for all purchases other than bonus category in a quarter.

There is not any sign up bonuses on Discover It Cash Back.

The foreign transaction fee of the card is unknown since there is not any statement about this fee from the company. We recommend you to call Discover It to learn rates of foreign transaction fee. It is important for you if you are purchasing from abroad very often.

Balance Transfer fee is 3% and this is very good. However cash advance fee is 5% and this is very high. $10 for minimum cash advance fee is also high too.

You will not pay any annual fee for Discover It Cash Back card.

Thoughts

This card can be profitable for you if your purchases are are regular on Grocery, Gas Stations, Uber & Lyft, Restaurants and Amazon.com or 3 purchase categories. Otherwise it won’t worth to get this card.
