Issue with Earning 5% at Costco.com with Discover
Numerous Reddit members noticed that their Costco.com purchases on the Discover IT card are no longer showing up as Wholesale Clubs and earning 5%, as per the Q2 2017 category. Since around April 20, they’ve been showing as Merchandise and not earning 5%. Other wholesale clubs like Sam’s are not effected.
Discover is apparently aware of the issue and trying to fix, but it’s worth the headsup to make sure you get credited the cash back. Personally, I’d notate on my calendar to check back in a month with the hopes that it’ll self-correct. Others had success chatting and getting an adjustment right away.
Addendum: A reader notes that homedepot.com is also coming through wrong and not automatically triggering 5% on Discover IT as part of Home Improvement.
