Discover Double Cash Back Enrollment No Longer Available to Existing Cardmembers

Discover it CardHave a Discover it card but haven’t gotten around to signing up for the Double Cash Back promotion? Unfortunately, it appears that Discover has silently ended the enrollment period for existing cardmembers. As of today, the promotion, which doubles all of the cash back that you earn with the card for one year–including cash back earned on 5% category spend and Discover Deals–is now available to new cardholders only.

Since you can have two different Discover accounts–provided you have had the first account for at least a year–if you already have one Discover it card, it is possible to apply for a new card with the promotion on it, but it no longer appears to be possible to add the promotion to an existing card. It’s a shame for those who missed out, especially for those who were looking to double dip on Discover it’s 5% categories next quarter, which include home improvement stores, department stores and Amazon.com.

Credit Hack: Getting Fees Waived On High Annual Fee Cards

PaperworkSometimes, it pays to know the letter of the law. In this case, if you’re in the market for a credit card with a hefty annual fee, you may be able to save yourself a chunk of change. As part of the Credit Card Accountability Responsibility and Disclosure Act of 2009 (CARD Act), a provision was added to the Truth in Lending Act that was intended to combat so-called “fee harvester cards” — cards that target subprime borrowers and charge excessively high upfront fees, coupled with low credit limits.

As it turns out, those with excellent credit can also benefit from this rule. In particular, in at least one instance, when applying for a specific premium credit card with a high annual fee, it’s possible to get the annual fee waived for the first year, though there are some risks involved.

Discover it Card: Double Cash Back for a Year For New and Existing Cardmembers

Discover it® CardBeginning June 1, 2015, Discover is rolling out a new promotion for Discover it cardmembers. Reports from multiple customer service reps have been conflicting, but most are saying that cardmembers will be able to earn double cash back for 12 billing cycles once they have enrolled, with enrollment being open in June and July. The double cash back will certainly apply to all of your 1% purchases, but there is debate over whether 5% category purchases will also be doubled. At the minimum, though, this would turn your Discover it card into a 2% cash back card temporarily. The double cash back also should supposedly apply to Discover Deals cash back.
