One of the best reasons to keep a Discover it Cash Back card in your wallet is its rotating quarterly cash back bonus calendar. There’s no annual fee to hold the card, and the bonus categories tend to be ones that people actually use.

Discover card members can register now to earn 5% cash back at gas stations, Uber and Lyft, in a promotion that runs from April 1 to June 30, 2019 (enrollment required). The 5% bonus applies to your first $1,500 in purchases across the three categories. Purchases made at gas stations affiliated with supermarkets and supercenters may not be eligible. Purchases made through Uber Eats don’t qualify, and purchases of Uber and Lyft gift cards may not be eligible. The card also offers 1% cash back on all other purchases.

Purchases made using tap-and-pay, mobile or wireless card readers, virtual wallets or similar technology will not be eligible if the technology does not provide sufficient transaction details for rewards qualification.

Rewards will be added to your account within two billing periods.

This card is similar to the popular Chase Freedom (No longer open to new applicants) in that it earns 5% back on your first $1,500 in purchases at rotating quarterly categories (upon enrollment). You still have time to register for this quarter’s bonus category (grocery stores), and you can look forward to earning 5% back on restaurants between July and September, then on between October and December.
