Discover Card makes summer even better



Discover credit card is offering a 5 percent Cashback Bonus this summer on popular vacation categories.

From July 2007 through September 2007, Discover cardholders will earn 5 percent with their cash back credit card on select purchases of up to $400. The categories that will provide 5 percent cash back include gas, hotels and summer fun.

For the gas category, travelers will save when they fill up using their Discover credit card at any gas station. That 5 percent cash back should relieve some of the expense of summer driving trips.

Meanwhile, cardholders will earn 5 percent cash back on hotel stays when they pay the hotel for a room directly. That's something to consider against the savings offered by booking a hotel through a travel website.

And, summer fun also provides 5 percent cash back when paid for with a Discover credit card. That means saving on admission to theme parks, water parks, aquariums, zoos and museums.

Cardholders who take to the road can also make use of Discover's free Global Travelers Hotlinewhich offers help at any time, anywhere in the world.

Calling the Global Travelers Hotline can provide vacationers with such necessary assistance as valuable document delivery arrangements, medical referrals, weather reports and lost baggage tracking.

Even when summer is over the savings will continue, since the 5 percent Cashback Bonus is provided on rotating Get More categories all year long.
