I've preordered the iPad 3, but I may cancel and reorder on the 17th for the extra $10. I was able to sign up via live chat.

Discover called me yesterday to tell me about this promotion. But when I told the rep that I planned to use my 5% Visa card on the 17th, he said he'd throw in an extra $5 CashBack if I used my Discover card instead. I said, "Sure, why not."

The moral of the story: never jump at the first offer.

(For the Delivery Date to the utility though, ChargeSmart says 3/19-3/22, but that doesn't matter to me.)

So, if I go to the movies today will I get 2% or 7%?

For the Valentine's day promotion like this, my purchases were on the qualifying day, but posted the next day. Discovercard still paid the extra 2%. So Transaction day controls for the 2% promotion.
==========================================================
Movies will be the extra 2% and 5% separately. Total rebate will be 7%.

Thanks. Does Fandango count for movies? I believe Shop Discover is offering 20% off for them.

Awesome time to go buy some gas with my discover card.

A CSR told me that ShopDiscover purchases will also earn the extra 2% Cash Back.

I went ahead and bought a Fandango GC today via ShopDiscover (they are 10%, not 20%). We'll see...
