Sears & Kmart 10% Cashback Through Discover Deals – Double Dip For Up to 50% Off


sears kmart 10 discover deals

Discover has doubled the cashback rate for both Sears & Kmart to 10% through their Discover Deals portal. For those cardmembers who are enrolled in Discover’s double cashback promotion that 10% would double at the end of their double cashback year.

Additionally, Discover is offering 5% cash back on up to $1,500 in purchases at department stores in the 3rd quarter which includes Sears. That 5% is also doubled at the end of the year for members registered for the promotion.

It may be possible to double dip the portal cashback by purchasing Sears eGift cards for a total of 50% cashback. For more information, see Double dipping Discover’s 3rd quarter categories.

Will logging into SYW just to earn those points affect portal earning?

[…] One of the greatest double dip opportunities lately has been to purchase Sears e-Gift cards through a portal to earn rewards and then earn additional rewards when you use those gift cards. I have covered this strategy before. […]

Ok… sorry in advance for the long post. My 21 year old water heater is finally dead and I was gonna buy a new one from Sears using my Discover IT card through the portal. With the possibility of up to 50% CB (I got in on the year end CB doubling as an existing customer in Jule) has me thinking about getting a hybrid electric model which I would never do otherwise. It is $700 more than a regular electric unit. But maxing the Sears CB and annual energy savings have me intrigued. So I would need to go through the portal and buy $1200 in GCs with my Discover card (the unit is $1140 but with tax will be over $1200) then go back through the portal and buy the heater with the GCs. Sounds easy enough! But people are having problems with Discover honoring the purchases using gift cards? So if they flag it then I would lose the second 10% through the portal (20% total after the year)? But still get all the original GC purchase CB?


Sears disappeared from Discover Deals yesterday. Anyone else seeing the same problem?


Can somebody confirm that they actually received the 10% cashback for a Sears GC purchase through the DD portal? I’m highly skeptical that Discover will honor these transactions.


I confirm.

Ordered Sears gift cards, did the security verification. E-mails came for the gift cards. I click the “redeem/print” button in the e-mails, I’m taken to No “secure site where you can view or print your gift card number or pin” as the e-mail states, link just takes me to Customer service are idiots and think I’m trying to scam them, won’t cancel/refund the order and want to send me physical gift cards in “7-10 days”.

Use chrome/win7. cleared cookies, disabled everything, ran incognito. Even tried in IE. Nothing loads.

Anyone else ever have this?


never had that problem with sears, but dealing with paypal digital gifts on a similar issue,


Tried again this morning and it worked as it should. Assume the security hold hadn’t properly been released on the order or something. What a waste of time that was on the phone yesterday!


I went through Discover Deals for the first time (new card) to Home Depot, and used a gift card purchased off a reseller site rather than the Discover card. No sign of the cash back. I used an incognito window in Chrome. My question is – are other people finding that this issue of no cashback if you don’t pay with Discover is applying beyond Sears?


I did same thing with home depot last month…. never tracked but I needed to return the item anyway. It’s possible that it’s the home depot that’s not tracking it correctly. Another data point… a week before this event I did the same thing but through topcashback and got the cash back. and as recent as couple weeks ago, I did same thing with Macy’s… buying an espresso machine with giftcards. cashback tracked in few days after receiving the package.

Is there any way to check the cashback from the portal, and also the cashback from the credit card?


What is the maximum amount you can load on a single sears physical gift card ? What is the max limit on online/printable gift cards ? Does Sears allow purchasing an item with multiple gift cards ?

Greg The Frequent Miler

$500 is the max. Yes you can use up to 15 gift cards in one order


So three questions.

#1 From your past experience can you confirm if purchases have qualified for 5% quarterly bonus ?

#2 Lets say this offer stays till perpetuity, how much gift cards can you buy before being shut down by discover ? Have there been any past experiences or cases of Discover shutting down cards ?

#3 How much do you personally spend on discover(for earning cashback) on monthly basis ?


I don’t think buying Sears GC count toward department store. On my posted transaction, it says:


Greg The Frequent Miler

My statement said something like that too, but I still got the 5 percent bonus


Discover deals doubling max? Bad taxi driver!


Spoke to a CSR(YMMV obviously) as my bonus cycle starts tomorrow and wanted to make sure the bonus was still on the card. Had him explain it to me and he said any bonuses, promotions, anything, all cashback at the end of the year earned was doubled. I went for broke and asked him if there were any spending promotions available, he gave me a $10 cashback on $100 spent in 30 days. Lol, gotta start somewhere!


Is there an annual max to the Didcover deals doubling?
