Retail stores and e-commerce websites make a ton of money each holiday season because people like you and me spend a lot of money on gifts. Amazon is, of course, the most popular place to shop online. You can find just about anything at Amazon, and if you’re a Prime member you can get fast, free shipping.
If you, like many Americans, will do some or all of your holiday shopping at Amazon this year, you will love this opportunity to get 10% cash back on your purchases.
Discover It credit card holders normally earn 1% cash back for all purchases, or 5% cash back for purchases in a particular category that rotates each quarter. For the 4th quarter of 2018, Discover is giving 5% cash back on purchases made at Amazon.com and wholesale clubs, just in time for your Christmas shopping!
But, here is where it gets even better. For new cardholders, Discover matches all of the cash back you earn during your first 12 months with the card. That match means that you can earn 10% cash back for purchases at Amazon and wholesale clubs during the 4th quarter of 2018 if you are a new cardholder! You’ll earn 5% immediately, and the match is awarded at the end of your first 12 months.
According to the details at Discover.com, you can earn 5% on purchases from 10/1/18 – 12/31/18 on up to $1,500 of purchases. The offer includes items sold by Amazon.com as well as third-party merchants. It also includes Amazon.com gift cards.
I signed up for the Discover It card earlier this year and I’m looking forward to doing a lot of my Christmas shopping on Amazon!
