Discover Apple Pay Payout Data Points
Discover’s 10% Apple Pay cashback promotion was pretty amazing if you were able to maximize it. At first my plan was to purchase gift cards to reach the $10,000 spending limit, but they changed the terms and I thus had to spend money on real things. Thankfully I amped up my reselling in December and was very close to maxing out the promotion on both mine and my wife’s cards.
While it has been taking months for people to receive some of the 10% cashback, I do have some good news. The statement just closed on my card and among the cashback earned was the following:
This is great news and a positive data point. The vast majority of the Apple Pay spending on this card was done in the month of December and about half of it was done on the last statement cycle. This means that Discover seems to be paying out quicker now, or at least they did on my card. Then there is my wife’s.
My Wife’s Card
Unfortunately, my experience on my wife’s card is much different. She has only received a few dollars of the roughly $800 that they owe her for the Apple Pay purchases. Her statement did close five days before mine, so my hope is that their accounting just hasn’t caught up. Now that I know mine posted for December purchases, I fully expect that they will pay her on her February statement. If that doesn’t happen then I will be following up.
I know some of you are waiting anxiously for your money and are skeptical that Discover will payout without being pushed into it. Thankfully it seems that the money is posting as it should or at least it is on some accounts. At least with my cashback posting I am now more hopeful that everything will post without a hitch. With that said, this is Discover and they haven’t been the best bank to deal with in my experience.
Please share your data points in the comments. How much of your total Discover Apple Pay cashback has posted? How much are you waiting for?
