Discover it® Cashback Match™ Is an Amazing Cashback Card (For the 1st Year at Least)!

Also see: 

My new Discover It card came in the mail this week, in very nice packaging.

I activated it online and got about to exploring Discover Deals now that I have full access.

And I might have to change my tune now.

I’ve long heralded the Fidelity AMEX as the best cashback card.

But now I’ll refer to it as the best ongoing cashback card. Because, the 1st year at least, the Discover It has it beat by a mile.

I’ll still get great use out of the Discover It card the 2nd year, albeit much reduced.

The 1st year, this card is good for an easy $600, at least. And I’m even thinking this no annual fee card has the potential for over $1,000 back.

Sorry if that headline sounds clickbait-y but I’m seriously considering getting the Discover It card.

Update: I got “it!”

I’m not crazy about the name of the card. It’s hard to refer to “It.”

I might discover... It

I might discover… It

– Where’s my “It”?

– Your what?

– My “It!” Discover “It!”

– You’ve lost your damn mind.

But no for reals when I looked at the categories and did the math, I thought how lucrative this no annual fee card could be.
