Quick Tip: Discover claws back portal purchases made with non-Discover cards


Big Habitat shares a reader report that Discover is clawing back some Discover Deals portal purchases paid for with cards other than Discover cards.  In the comments of the post, the same reader says that he hasn’t actually seen any rewards taken away from his account yet.

The letter read, in part:

During a recent review of your account we found that one or more of the purchases you have made through Discover Deals recently were no made using a Discover card as the method of payment.  As a result, any rewards you received in connection with purchases made using a card other than Discover were erroneously added to your account.  These rewards have now been identified and removed from your account.

Discover Deals claw back letter

Discover Deals overall seems to have paused notifications of portal rewards since early to mid October.  Perhaps they’re closely reviewing all such purchases before awarding any?

Personally, I’m going to back off using the Discover Deals portal for a while unless I plan pay directly with a Discover card.
