Confirmed: Discover Deals Will Be Doubled (And Referrals)

Discover is currently having an amazing promotion for new and existing Discover it cardholders (including Discover it Chrome & Discover it secured, but excluding Discover it Miles) where all cash back you earn for the next twelve billing cycles (starting your next statement cycle). We’ve discussed this deal in depth in this post and I’d recommend reading that if you haven’t already.

What we weren’t sure about was whether Discover Deals cash back would be doubled, people had heard conflicting answers from customer service representatives (CSR) in the past and I’m always hesitant to rely on front line CSR anyway. I’ve received a response from the Discover media team and they confirm that it will be doubled:

Regarding Discover Deals; cash back earned through the portal is doubled. Whatever cash back a cardmember earns through 12-months (regular purchase, Discover Deals, Refer-A-Friend, 5% rotating categories, etc.) will be doubled.

This is great news and makes this deal even better as the Discover Deals shopping portal usually already has the best rates, if you double them then it’s even better. If you’re not already a Discover cardholder, then I’d recommend signing up for a card. Your best bet would be to use somebody else’s referral link, that way you’ll both earn a $50 bonus (which is doubled to $100). You can refer up to 10 friends per year which means you could earn a total of $1,000 in cash back from referrals alone. To refer somebody, log in here: https://www.discover.com/credit-cards/exclusives/sharediscover/.

Also keep in mind that you can have up to two Discover cards, your first card must have been opened for at least one year for your second. It’s also possible to have two Discover it cards (thus doubling the $1,500 you can spend per quarter in the 5%/10% rotating categories), I’m not sure if it’s possible to refer yourself but it is you’d basically be getting a sign up bonus of $200 which is pretty great when coupled with the 10% categories for the next year. If you’ve had any experience referring yourself, please let us know in the comments.

You can share your referral links in the comments, but if you do so then please try to contribute to the site by answering other peoples questions (on this post and others) and sending me any deals you come across in the future as that way everybody benefits.

As always, big thanks to the Discover media team for answering my query. The reason they didn’t answer earlier is entirely my own fault.

Discover is going to lower referral signup bonus from $100 to $50 on January 1. So click on my link ASAP please. It is the Student It card specifically, but you can make it a regular It card by changing the occupation during signup.
