Discover Card: Receipts Rewards

Discover Card: Turn Receipts into Rewards

Not a bad deal, if you were going to buy something anyway. For example, if you planned to buy something at Office Depot or Best Buy, you might as well do it at Parkway Plaza on your Discover Card rather than at a standalone store on another credit card.
