Discover Card Birthday Double Cashback Bonus Details
The birthday month double cashback bonus programs begins on the first day of your birthday month (or the date you sign up, whichever comes later) through the last day of that month. It would be best to sign up now even if your birthday isn’t anytime soon just so you do not forget about the promotion.
The 2% cashback bonus applies to up to $500 in purchases made during your birthday month, so the maximum cashback possible through this program is $10 (or 1,000 miles). It may not be a significant amount but it is still worth the few seconds it takes to sign up.
Purchases made as part of this promotion does not count toward the tier level calculation of your annual purchases. The qualifying credit cards do not earn 1% cashback (or 1 mile) per dollar spent until cardholders make over $3000 in purchases. Cardholders who haven’t met this threshold are still eligible for the birthday 2% cashback bonus.
For example, a Discover More cardmember made $2,500 in purchases (which earned 0.25% cashback) from January to March. If the member’s birthday is in April, the member earns 2% cashback on up to $500 in purchases during that month. The member has not reached the $3,000 threshold to earn 1% cashback on purchases made after April.
Qualifying cardholders simply have to log in to sign up. Visit the birthday month double cashback bonus promotion page at http://www.discovercard.com/birthday/.
