Gas It Up, At Least for this Quarter

For those who carry the Discover More credit card in their wallet, remember to sign up for this quarter’s 5% cashback bonus award (if you haven’t yet).  From now until September 30, 2009, you can earn 5% from purchases at stand-alone gas stations, hotels (booked directly by you via the phone or the hotel’s website, not through other online travel websites), zoos, theme parks, and bookstores.  These are the perfect categories for your summer activities.  Just remember that Discover is capping the cash back bonus at $300 in purchases (or $15 in cash back).  After that, any more purchases made within these categories will only earn you 1% cash back.

Tip: Per our post yesterday, one way to triple dip, for example, is to use your Discover credit card with your Borders card and a Borders weekly coupon when you make purchases at Borders.  This week, Borders is offering a coupon for 25% off your entire store purchase.  Thus, you will be able to earn a discount off your purchase, Borders Bucks for future purchases, and 5%  cashback on whatever amount you pay.
