    Discover the Discover Card!

    Sunday, September 25, 2005
    Just some quick tips about Discover because I use my card more than any other, and this is why:

    1. Cashback bonus - through my link to the right, you can get 2% back on all purchases or 1% back on purchases and 5% back on gas purchases (through the gas link). With gas prices as high as they are, it is a great idea!

    2. They run additional cashback periods during the year - the latest was 5% cashback at restaurants. You would get that as well as the bonuses I explained above!

    3. They are offering (through both of these links to your right) the following:

    Platinum Card - gas or regular
    0% for ten months - that is almost a whole year of 0% interest
    no annual fee

    For example:
    In 10 months, the 0% could SAVE you around $500.00 - vs. a different card with an interest rate of say 10% that had a balance of 5000.00!
    You could SAVE almost $700.00 if you had $8000.00 on a card - in just ten months!

    4. I love to double the reward dollars I earn - we will take Sharper Image as an example because it is my favorite and it is fun!! It's as easy as just calling Discover and asking them to double your credits for Sharper Image. They will send you gift certificates right away, and then you can go shopping! (They are online - check out the link to the right!) It is a great idea for the holidays, and it is like you got the money for free - especially when you are paying no interest!
