Discover It Credit Card: Free $150 Signup Bonus
Previously, I’ve discussed the benefits of the Discover It credit card, including the ShopDiscover cash back portal. The one big negative that I’ve pointed out, however, is the lack of a generous signup bonus. Well, Discover seems to be making an effort to gain market share, because they now offer a $150 signup bonus after you spend $750 within 3 months. This bonus is the largest signup bonus Discover has ever given on the Discover It credit card.
[Update 12/2/13] The Discover It credit card no longer offers a $150 signup bonus. The best signup bonus now is probably through Amazon’s link where you will get a $75 Amazon gift card.
The Main Point
To be clear, the Discover It card should not be the first card on your list to open, because so many other credit cards offer a much more generous signup bonus. The Barclays Arrival credit card, for example, gives you 44,000 miles worth roughly $440 towards travel for spending just $1,000 in 90 days. Nevertheless, the Discover It credit card is a great card to open and keep forever, which will improve your credit score. In addition, the card does not have an annual fee, offers 5% cash back on quarterly rotating categories, and provides great customer service. As a result, I’ve added it to my top credit card bonuses page. And now, you can get $150 cash back for opening the card.
