New Discover 5% cash back bonus category starts today

Just a reminder that starting today there is a brand new 5% cash back bonus category for the Discover It credit card. The first quarter of 2013 featured restaurants and movies. The second quarter of 2013 will feature 5% cash back on home improvement stores.

If you’re thinking that you don’t spend much money at Lowe’s or Home Depot, here’s a good article on how to get 5% cash back on many other categories such as gas, restaurants, Amazon purchases, and many others. Here’s a hint:

The 5% cash back is on the first $1,500 in purchases. After that (and for all other purchases at any time) it’s 1% cash back until a new category starts in September.

I’m using the Discover card strictly on bonus categories, and I’ve earned $56 in cash back only in the first 2 months of use. You can actually stretch out and increase the value of your cash back by exchanging it for some of these gift certificates.
