Turkey day is over and now we're all trying to decide how to spend money in order to save it.

Activate Your January to March 2014 5% Cash Back Categories from Discover Now

The Discover it® card offers 1% cash back on all purchases and 5% back on rotating categories every quarter.

You have to register for the rotating 5% cash back categories each quarter, and you can do that here.

Future 5% Categories in 2014:
October – December: Holiday Shopping (my guess: department stores and online shopping)

While most non-MileValuers love the Discover it® card for its simplicity (no annual fee, no overlimit fee, no foreign transaction fee, 0% balance transfer fee for 18 months, 0% APR for six months), there is also value in the card for people who understand rewards

Execution

My first cards couldn't have been easier! While I did hit a couple of snags, none were very serious, and I am treating them as learning experiences.
