Discover it® Cash Back review: Earn up to 5% cash back each quarter

If you are a new card member, Discover matches all the cash back you earn, dollar for dollar, at the end of your first year! With no annual fee, no foreign transaction fees, and amnesty for many of the situations that cause most banks to hike their rates and fees, this card could prove a lucrative addition to your wallet.

CardRatings Editor's Analysis: Pros & Cons

  • Earn 5% cash back on everyday purchases at different places each quarter like grocery stores, restaurants, gas stations, select rideshares and online shopping, up to the quarterly maximum when you activate.
  • The card features bonus 5% cash-back categories on a rotating basis (up to $1,500 spent and only when you activate), but if you know you spend a lot in a particular category, you might be better off with a card that features a constant higher cash-back percentage in that category. Or, if you know these are the best categories for you, but still want 5% back in rotating categories, see if Chase Freedom® would be a good fit for you.

    This card is amazing. All the other CC's harass my mailbox daily, but then offer me a credit limit $3000 less than Discover did. How is that even possible? I love the free FICO score checker I can use when I log in too. The other day they emailed me a $5 starbucks card for being a member. It really seems like they're kissing my ass but I don't care I love this card!

    card has many "NO"s but beware. If you're not planning on carrying a balance, you should find most of those things useless anyways.International fee is ZERO. rewards are at least 1% cashback but gifft card redemptions bumps the reward $$ to a higher percentage (redeem at 10% disc or 6% disc). Rotating categories are also helpful. effectively raising rewards rate on discount stores (walmart, target) to above 1%CON: no solid CB on supermarkets (gocery stores) gas only rotating. discover is not as accepted as Visa and MC, but sams club take them.
