Discover card is pleased to announce that they have improved the cash back rewards program and made it a little easier and more fun to use. Discover  is a great credit card to have as it offers 3% cash back and you get rotating rewards that offer up to 5% cash back every quarter. I use this card for most of my purchases and then use it strictly for gas during the summer as the rewards on gas are the highest at that time.

The biggest changes come in the form of :

  • Improved Navigation
  • Quick Find
  • Recommendations For You
  • More Redemption Options

The site has been laid out to make it much easier to navigate through and get what you want quickly. This means you can just go straight to the category you want and find exactly what you need.

With the Quick Find option you can locate the different rewards that you need with just a few clicks. Looking for restaurant gift cards? That is available in a few clicks! Looking for online gift cards? Well you can find that too with the quick find on the site.

Based on your shopping habits and what you have redeemed in the past, Discover makes personalized recommendations for the types of rewards you want to redeem. This is a great way to save time because you do not have to scroll through pages of rewards to find something you like.

There have also been more redemption offers included in the list from gift cards to ipods and other merchandise. And the best part of it all is that unlike some other rewards programs they ship FREE to any US street address!!!!

I love my Discover card and although I was using it to only get Red Lobster and CVS gift cards I might just start checking out the other options available in the prizes section.

Remember, to make the most optimal use of your Discover credit card you need to:

  • Have a zero balance
  • Pay the card in full every statement
  • Sign up for the rotating rewards

Another great option of the Discover cash back program that I forgot to mention is that when you choose a gift card (of a certain amount) you get a bonus $5.  So every time I redeem $45 in rewards for a CVS gift card I end up getting a $50 gift card, while a $20 redemption at Sally’s gives me a $25 gift card!!
