Do I have to start using Discover it - Cashback Match at a specific time to earn cash back?

Postby Marlen » Thu Nov 16, 2017 7:31 pm

I would like to know if I have to start using the credit card next year for me to get the cash back or I can start using it next month.

You can begin using your Discover it - Cashback Match as soon as you receive it, and you will earn a standard 1% cash back on all purchases no matter what. If you want to earn 5% cash back, you will need to make sure that you have activated the current cashback categories. The final quarter of 2017 is nearly over (Dec. 31), but if you received the card today, you could activate those categories and begin earning 5% cash back at Target and Amazon.com almost immediately. Regarding the cashback match bonus, you will earn that based on a year from the date when you first open your account -- so if you open your Discover card in December 2017, you will receive your cashback match bonus sometime around December 2018.
