Beginning July 1st, Discover it® cardholders can earn a 5 percent cashback bonus on up to $1,500 in purchases made at gas stations with free and easy sign-up. The offer extends through September 30th, and can take a little of the sting out of exorbitant gas prices you're likely to find on the road this summer. Cardholders will continue to earn 1 percent on all other purchases.
According to GasBuddy.com, the average gallon of gas currently costs $3.66. Considering that an average mid-sized car has a 14-gallon tank, you can expect to pay $51.24 (on average) for a full tank of gas. But if you pay with your Discover it® card in quarter 3, you'll save 5 percent on that same tank (again, up to $1,500 and if you've enrolled), which is equal to $2.56 in savings and over 18 cents per gallon.
