"Discover 10% to 22% cashback in qtr 4 up to 10k"

Recommended Posts

I hate Apple. But, what generation Iphone supports Apple Pay?

 

I'll buy a used I4S and throw it in a family plan...

You need a 6 or 6 plus.

 

The 5s works if you pair it with Apple watch or something.

Guess I'll buy a used i6, or a broken screen i6 and have the screen fixed in China for next to nothing.

 

Put it in a family plan for $20/mo

If you have all your purchases lined up, you might be able to link your card info with a friends phone who doesn't use apple pay and use their phone and avoid all this hassle

I busted the screen/digitizer on my GalaxyS4 and got it fixed for 20 USD last time I was in Guangzhou.

It's incredible how much the retail markup is for a screen

 

$20 for a screen replacement installed is fantastic

So do you think this counts with the double cash back as well?

I'll be on the lookout for any exclusionary language but I don't see why not. They aren't going to go broke on it, only x amount of customers have the double cash back year and x amount of customers will use Apple Pay and x amount (like us) that will max out 10k.

I'm very hopeful.

Confirmed by Discover social media team, this will also apply to double cash back year. Being called deal of the year by various sites we frequent, lol. (On Sept 10th mind you) Edited by NoPresetSnarkLimit

To all the iPhone haters, just know, your best value will be on the newest iPhone for resale (but I'm sure you'll post back when you decide to keep it :rofl: ) Now back to our regularly scheduled Discover discussion.

In fact I hate to throw this one at you but a crafty spender could preorder the 6s on the 12th, receive on the 25th, max out 10k within a couple of days and resell for higher than purchase price on eBay due to limited availability at launch.

Meh...my S5 smokes the iPhone 6...I used to buy iPhones, but switched a few years ago and never looked back. Don't get me wrong, they're sweet phones, and the fanbois keep the resale value up, but I just like Android better now.

 

Diff'rent strokes for diff'rent folks...

 

Oh, yeah...Discovery is subprime. :grin:

you could buy a Macy's or a BestBuy GC or a bunch of others for 10K and resell on eBay or some of these places like CardCash. (Many more to choose from)

 

You will probably lose 10% but then again, you will still gain 1K CashBack at the end of the day.
