Get cash back when using your Discover Card. I am not talking about the Discover Card Cashback bonus that you earn for making purchases on a Discover Card. Rather, I'm talking about using the Discover Card in a supermarket, and then choosing cash back as a option during checkout. Here in Silicon Valley, California, I have gotten cash back from Safeway and Nob Hill Foods. You can get up to $50 from Safeway, and $30 from Nob Hill. This works out to be a nice interest free loan, as I pay off the card every month. It also saves me a trip to the ATM. And, I earn cashback on the cash back since it goes on my statement as being a purchase.
Of course, I do not recommend this strategy to people who run a balance on their credit card, and end up paying interest charges on the money.
Does anybody know of other supermarkets that allow you get get cash back on a credit card purchase?
