Quick Thoughts

This is a targeted offer which doesn’t require enrollment, so keep an eye out on your emails to see if Discover sent you one. The email I received had the subject line ‘Don’t miss out on your $200 Savings Boost Bonus’, but there could be other subject lines.

When looked at in isolation, these savings bonuses aren’t overly exciting. Earning $150 for depositing $15,000 or $200 for depositing $25,000 is a 1% or 0.8% bonus respectively. However, there are two features that make this offer more appealing.

The first is that you only need to keep the money deposited with Discover through October 31, 2023. Depending on when you deposit the money, that’s only 5-6 weeks you need to hold the money there, so on an annualized basis the return is much higher.

The second thing to consider is that Discover is already offering a pretty good rate on their savings accounts. The account that I received this offer on is already earning 4.3% APY. There are certainly higher savings rates out there, but 4.3% is competitive especially when taking into account the $150 or $200 bonus for depositing more money for a short amount of time.
