    So, that cap would come to $1500 x.05 = $75 per quarter.

    The 10% Double bonus earns you $150 per quarter which is not too shabby.

    Then there's the 10% bonus up to $10,000 on purchases with the double cash back promotion.

    It's the perfect time of the year to have this category for gas stations unless you're an serious activist pounding the table for cleaner air.

    Well, wait a minute. If the electric charging stations cost money to charge your car, will that count for Discover?

    I am not a fan of the $1500 cap. That is holding me back for sure.

    I should have included this in the original post. But just so you know, here were Discover's bonus categories for last year. Until all the 2016 categories are available in February, these will serve as a good guide as to what will be in store for Discover cardholders next year.

    2015 Bonus Categories (in case you were interested):
    • January - March: Gas and Ground Transportation (sound familiar!)
    • April - June: Restaurants and Movies (or what I like to call Parents Night Out)
    • July - September: Home Improvement Stores, Department Stores, and Amazon
    • October - December: Amazon, Department Stores and Clothing Stores

    Remember that last years list is only a guide as to what Discover will do in 2016. But so far I definitely see a trend.

    Not yet - I think Discover intends to reveal them in February.

    The remaining categories and calendar quarters are not yet available.

    What's up with the slow reveal? I don't recall them doing this before.
