From the CompareCards.com Editorial Team

With the Discover it® Cashback Match™ credit card you can earn a solid 5% cash back at different places each quarter like gas stations, grocery stores, restaurants, Amazon.com, or wholesale clubs up to the quarterly maximum each time you activate. 1% cash back on all other purchases. The strong earnings categories change on a regular basis, but they typically include popular products and services related to travel, dining, groceries, and gas. As an exclusive offer, Discover will automatically match all of the Cashback you earn during your first year of cardmembership.

The cash back you earn won't expire as long as your account is open and in good standing, and it's very easy to redeem the cash back you've earned as a statement credit towards your account. You can also redeem the accumulated rewards by making a charitable contribution of your liking, or by converting them into purchase power for merchandise or gift cards.

The Discover it® Cashback Match™ credit card additionally offers new card members an introductory APR of 0% for 14 months from the date of account opening. There is also no annual fee and no foreign transaction fees, as well as a free FICO® credit score available online and with your monthly statements.

The Good
  • There is no limit to the amount of cash back you can earn with the Cashback Match offer, so you could earn a huge sign up bonus in your first year.
The Not so Good
  • If you don't want to have to think about the rotating bonus categories, this might not be the best card for you.
The Bottom Line

The Discover it® Cashback Match™ credit card is an excellent cash back card that currently offers one of the best sign up bonuses on the market. With cash back, no annual fee, and a nice intro APR, this card is a good fit for just about anyone.

Love my discover credit card. The cash back reward is exactly what they say and even better. Not only do you get the money at the end of the year, but you can also transfer the funds over to your checking account for cash. Customer service is excellent - never had any issues with them - even when I used the card overseas when I travel to Africa.

Customer Service IS GREAT!! Discover has been very good to me. They have really helped me reestablish my credit. Plus the 5% reward categories are nice! You just have to remember to activate them online. Very easy to do. 1% back on regular every day purchases, would be even better if they had 1.5-2% back on purchases? No annual fees. Many card designs to choose from and generous credit allowances. Overall, I have enjoyed using it. I LOVE this card!!!

A top 3 cash back card, and the best cash back card for online shopping. 5% cash back in practical shopping categories throughout the year (Changes categories every 3 months). Great online shopping cash back deals in their additional shopping portal. Also they have a very low redemption minimum ($0.01). Only weakness is that Discover It is not accepted everywhere; especially outside of the USA or small mom & pop stores.

This card is for real! At the end of my first year just like it says. Got a match amount of rewards cash in excess of $600. I was blown away by it. Try it you like it. You have to go in to look at your account as with any charge card and thats when i check off the rotating rewards that I want. Its very simple and takes no time at all.

I have used the Discover it Cashback Match card for the past 2 years and have been nothing short of satisfied with this card. I consider myself pretty thrifty--I use coupons regularly, I recycle my children's clothing and buy nice used clothing, but NOTHING beats cash back on my everyday purchases. Literally nothing. I was shocked to read some of the other reviews for this card to see that people claimed that they had a high interest rate. Definitely call them if that's the case, mine is relatively low and while I don't have bad credit, I don't have perfect credit either. I've never had a need to contact their customer service but I have a friend who has and was very happy with the level of service she received.

I have used Discover Card for many years. Because I do pay in full each month (and on time) by the designated date I have enjoyed quite a number of years of enjoying the bonus that accumulates until I am ready to redeem any part of my bonus that has accumulated. Yes, I am one happy camper!!!

Have been with Discover for 25+ years and have been very satisfied with this card. Never have not had a problem with the service. I use my cash back rewards for gift giving. I also enjoy received my credit score each month. It is a good way to keep track of credit activity. I five this card a 5 star rating easily.

You get an email long before the next quarter activation is required. I use the cash back bonus on discounted gift cards for Christmas gifts. I think it is the best card. Disputed charges are handled with ease.

I will have to give thanks for Discover Credit card. The only hold back is that the interest rate is a bit high. But unlike BofA, they will genuinely work with you when things go wrong. I've been with Discover for almost ten years. when I lost my job, they really worked with me, they enrolled me in a lower payment program which also resulted in a lower interest rate. their customer service is also excellent.....they waived my interest from the previous month. it happened in a time when I really needed it.
