New Discover it™ Card 5% cash back categories go live today

Discover it™ cardholders can begin earning 5% cash back on Q2 categories today. Seriously, no April's foolin'! This quarter's categories include 5% earnings on up to $1,500 in purchases made at home improvement stores through June, 2013.

This comes as pleasant news to homeowners that just so happen to carry this Discover cash back card. With the weather nationwide finally taking a turn towards spring, it's that time of year where home improvement and spring cleaning move from the back-burner to a priority.

5% cash back allows Discover members to take advantage of the purchases they planned on making anyway, no matter what home improvement categories you're most sorely in need of. Today also resets the 5% cash back cap of $1,500, meaning cardholders that maxed out their 5% cash back opportunities in Q1 can re-enroll to earn up to $75 in cash back through June. Once they've reached their maximum cash back, cardholders will continue to earn 1% cash back on all purchases.

For more details on the Discover it™ card, choose the type of this card that best fits your financial situation and hit the “Apply” button to be redirected to their secure website.

Happy April Fools, everyone! (But again, all of the above is totally legit...)
