This happened to me too. I then called in to ask them to convert it to the Discover It rewards program (rather than Discover It Chrome) and they told me the change would be effective next billing cycle.

ablang said: Did anyone get this new card in the mail recently? It offers a 2% cashback bonus on gas stations and restaurants and 1% cashback bonus on everything else. Unfortunately, I don't need this card as I have cards that give me 5% cashback bonus on gas stations and restaurants, and 1.5% - 2% cashback bonus on everything else.
BTW, "Open Road" featured 2% cashback bonus at every gas station & restaurant on the first $250.00 per month and 0.25% on all other purchases.
Discover outside the 5% categories has always been second string compared to the competition. Examples: AARP -3% unlimited ~~ cashback bonus on gas stations and restaurants and 1% cashback bonus on everything else. Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express~~ 6% at U.S supermarkets on up to $6,000 per year in purchases (then 1%); 3% at U.S gas stations; 1% other purchases. Santander Bank Bravo - ~~•Earn 3x rewards points on supermarket, gas station and restaurant purchases; Up to 15,000 points per calendar quarter; 1x point otherwise 1 cpp
There are several 2% flat rate cards on everything.
Restaurants 5% is seasonal on Discover and Chase. U.S. Bank Cash+™ Visa® Card lets you choose 2 of nine possible choices of at 5% and a separate 2% category out of three choices every quarter. I chose 5% back on fast food and cell phone service like Sprint.
I got this notice today. In addition to what others have posted, the letter said I'm getting the Cashback Match for 1 year, essentially making it a card that offers 4% on gas and restaurants and 2% on everything else (more with gift card redemption) for 12 months.
