What are the current cash back categories for Discover and their percentage cash back? Do the categories change and if so how often? If they change please tell me what they are. Is the only difference on the Discover it cards the 18 month transfer?

Using Discover it cards you can earn 5% cash back bonus on categories that change during the year. For 2015 the categories are:

  • Gas and ground transportation from January to March
  • Reataurants and movies from April to June
  • Home improvement stores, department stores and Amazon.com from July to September
  • Holiday shopping from October to December

To receive this 5% cash back you will need to sign up each quarter. Also you will earn general 1% cash back on all other purchases.

The 0% interest introductory periods are the only difference between the Discover it consumer cards. You may choose a card with 14 months of no interest on purchases and balance transfers. Or you can transfer a balance from another card and get 18 months of no interest. Note that when the introductory interest rate of the Discover cards is over, the ongoing APR will apply.
