Discover Card Complaint - Consumers Be Aware Discover Card Bogus 5% Cash Back Scam
RIVERWOODS, ILLINOIS -- Discover Card users, please do not believe in your Discover Card 5% cash back reward program. I just called customer relations to check on my cash back rebates on all the charges I booked through that card and just found out that they don't consider a lot of charges that should deserve 5% cash back. For example, hotels booked through travel agency sites such as Priceline, Expedia, Travelocity are not eligible for 5% cash back, hotel must be directly booked through the hotels themselves in order to be considered for 5% cash back. They do not consider Target, Sears etc as department stores, they consider them as discount stores and are therefore not eligible for 5% cash back even though any normal person would consider them as department stores.
Any smart shoppers out there, please do not get lured into applying for Discover Card by thinking that you can get all these bogus 5% cash back they advertise. Worst of all, they don't even disclose all these restriction upfront in a small print somewhere until you make all your purchases through their card and start wondering how come your cash back reward is still so small.
