Apple Pay

What’s the scoop with Apple Pay?

Discover’s 10% Cashback Bonus promotion is enforcing the no-gift-cards rule, as shown by this reader’s email.

We let you know when Discover updated the terms to state that gift card purchases would be excluded from the promotion, but we still wanted to see how it would play out, as we know in the credit card world that there are often rules that aren’t enforced.

Tell me a little more about Apple Pay and Discover…

We told you about this excellent promotion in September, as until the end of the year, cardmembers who pay with their Discover card using Apple Pay will automatically earn an extra 10% cashback bonus for up to $10,000 of in-store purchases.

What else do I need to know about the Apple Pay Discover promotion?

While it’s a shame that gift cards are excluded, this is still a great promotion that you should take advantage of.
