Discover 5% on Amazon in Q3 in Addition to Restaurants – Check if you were Targeted

[Originally posted 5/4/17. Reposting 6/15/17 since many more are getting the email offer now.]

Some people are being targeted on their Discover card to get 5% back on Amazon for Q3 2017 on top of the standard 5% that everyone gets at restaurants as the Q3 category. Perhaps they are targeting those who’ve been known to spend money on Amazon with their Discover card.

Sounds to me like the 5% Amazon is separate from the 5% restaurants in which case you’d be able to get the 5% on $1,500 in Amazon and another 5% on $1,500 in restaurant purchases.

Check your Discover accounts to see if you were targeted, and activate the offer. No luck for me, but check the main page, under pending activity). If you were targeted, there’ll be a box that said Click to Activate Amazon for Q3.

Not targeted. 🙁
I guess you need to be actively using your discover card at least in the past few months. Discover It was my go-to card (particularly for Amazon) till February until I started churning. I’ve barely used it since then and ended up not getting targeted.

I put 2500 on my new discover so far in 2017 and was not targeted. Was anybody who has double-cashback targeted?

Well, if you have the double cash thingy, you already have a 10% category. It probably makes sense for them to not hand out two 10% categories to someone lol.

Yeah, I’m wondering if that affects who gets targeted.

I got targeted in my DC CC which is 2 years Old (Beyond double Cash Back Bonus), but was not targeted in my Wife’s CC which is still within the Double Cash Back Bonus. May be they are just targeting those CCs, which are beyond Double Cash Back Bonus, and did a lot of Amazon shopping.

I’ve spent $80 across 3 transactions since September 2016 (when my double cashback year ended) and I was targeted.

I got it on my old discover, that is past the double cashback. The new one w/ double cashback wasn’t targeted. Still, nice 5% with salliemae card dead.

looking over the terms it’s interesting…it specifically INCLUDES amazon.com gift cards…

Dee

it’s even better cos it includes marketplace orders as well making it better than the store and prime cards…wow this is turning out to be better and better.

Both the Amazon/Chase card and Discover gave 5% to gcs and marketplace orders before. That’s nothing new.

Of Course they will include GCs, as Amazon is there in the Bonus Category any way in the Q4. But yes, you can Buy GCs for your friends and families.

I wasn’t targeted, but Discover is one of the coolest CCC’s out there.

No luck on either account, have hardly used either for a while now.

if you have an INK+ or INK Cash, don’t bother. just buy Amazon GCs for 5X at Staples/etc. Unless, of course, you’ve already hit your annual limit for 5x spending.

I’ve used Discover recently on Amzn. Not targeted. Grrrrr.

I got the cashback match at the end of the year notification there instead of the amazon.com 5% cash back bonus notification in that section.

Do you think that this 5% Amazon cashback Q3 bonus is targeted only to some of the folks who are no longer in the cash back match first year promo?
