Discover and Chase are rotating their cash back categories just in time for the holiday season. From now until December 31, Discover it® Cash Back cardholders can earn a 5% cash back bonus when they shop online and in department stores. Chase is offering 5% back to Freedom cardholders when they shop at Amazon, Zappos, Macy’s, Sears and others.
‘Tis the season for cash back
Discover also recently announced the launch of Discover Deals, a shopping site where cardholders can earn additional cash back rewards or get instant savings on in-store and online purchases.
Discover cardholders can save on everything from electronics to clothing, by logging into their accounts and opting in. They can also call 1-800-DISCOVER to register for offers.
Cardholders who want to opt-in to the Chase Freedom cash back categories can do so by phone, at an ATM or in person at one of their branches. They can “like” Chase Freedom on Facebook to activate their cash back rewards. People can also sign up to receive text or email alerts letting them know when its time to activate a new category. A full list of the eligible stores at which people can earn the cash back bonus is posted on the Chase Freedom website.
People can earn cash back on up to $1,500 in merchandise with both cards, which translates into $75.
