  • Use your Discover card when you make these purchases at Grocery Stores
  • Promo ends June 30, 2018
  • Make sure to activate your card to qualify for this promotion. Go to your Discover account to activate.


This shows that I’ve earned 5% cash back in the second quarter.


Discover also gives us a view of what the next promotions look like for the next two quarters. In the third quarter, using your Discover card at restaurants gets you 5% cash back. In the last quarter of the year, perfect timing for all the holiday online shopping, you get 5% cash back when you shop at and Wholesale Clubs. Unlike Discover, Chase has not published their upcoming bonus promos for the third and fourth quarters. I expect to see that a few weeks before the next quarter.

I look forward to these promotions. In my family, we have quite a few Chase Freedom cards as a result of downgrading or product changing over the course of the years. We make sure to take advantage of these promotions every quarter. Especially for this current promotion, we made sure to use our cards whenever we buy groceries, or every opportunity where we could pay using PayPal or Chase Pay.

How about you? Which of the quarterly promotions have been easy for you to meet? Which ones do you look forward to?
