Extra Cashback on Movies and Dining with Discover

Add to Favorites:

With frigid temperatures outdoors, a night snuggled up on the sofa in front of the TV sounds pretty appealing—especially if it includes a cash back bonus. Discover card’s current rotating seasonal cash back category gives cardholders 5% back on online movie rentals and video store rentals, so there’s no need to leave home to get rewarded.

For those who do venture out, the 5% back is also good at movie theaters and restaurants, making a night on the town a little more affordable. Now through March 31, 2014, cardholders can get 5% back on up to $1,500 in movie and dining purchases, online or in person. That’s up to $75, after which the standard 1% back on all purchases will still apply.

To sign up for the extra cash back, members must long in to their account online or call 1-800-DISCOVER to opt in.

Valentine’s Day on the way

Discover card is also offering a few special deals to sweeten your Valentine shopping. At, the card issuer’s online shopping mall, cardholders get between 5% and 20% cash back on all purchases year-round. For Valentine’s Day, select categories are offering increased cash back, including flower shops, jewelers and department stores.

If you’re in the market for something sparkly, is offering 15% cash back instead of their usual 10%. 1-800-Flowers has upped their reward from 15% to 20% cash back. And Bloomingdales, Macy’s and Sears are all giving shoppers 10% cash back on purchases. All three normally give only 5% back.

Unlike the 5% rotating cash back bonus offered each quarter, extra cash back from is unlimited. There are over 200 retailers represented in the ShopDiscover, from automotive parts and hardware shops to travel, food and wine purveyors. All offer at least 5% cash back all year long on a wide selection of merchandise.

Cardholders can increase their cash back bonus by shopping through ShopDiscover and then paying for their purchases with their reward: the cash back bonus is accepted as a form of payment.

Manage your account from your phone

Discover also has an app so cardholders can manage their cash back bonus or shop at ShopDiscover from their phone or other mobile device. Texting “APP” to 347268 will download the Discover app directly to your mobile phone.
