There’s even a travel category, which includes offers for car rental agencies, travel websites, cruise lines, and more.

To take advantage of online discounts and boosted rewards, you simply find an appealing offer and log in to your Discover account. From there, you proceed to the retailer’s website to make your purchase and earn a discount or rewards.
To get coupons, you log in to your account to access a coupon code, which can be used at checkout online or in-store.
To give you an idea of what deals are available, Discover is currently offering an additional 5% cash back bonus at Walmart and Macy’s, a $25 in-store gift card for Sam’s Club, and 5% off Overstock.com purchases.
How Can You Access Discover Deals?
Discover Deals is available to anyone with an active Discover card, and you don’t need to create a separate account. To find a deal, you can search Discover Deals by merchant or browse the merchant categories. Once you’ve found the deal you want, you simply log in to your account and proceed from there.
Discounts are immediately applied to your purchases, and any extra rewards you earn are added to your regular rewards. Coupon codes can be saved for later use.
However, keep in mind that you must use the Discover card that’s linked to your account to pay for your purchase.
How Can You Use Discover Deals to Your Advantage?
Discover Deals is excellent for online shopping. Whenever you consider an online purchase, check Discover Deals for applicable offers. If Discover doesn’t feature your favorite retailer, you can try to find a participating merchant that does carry your desired product or service.
If you’re heading out to do some in-store shopping, check the Discover Deals website for any applicable coupons.
Remember, increased rewards and discounts won’t always make up for price discrepancies. Make sure to do the math—if you can find a much cheaper option elsewhere, you should shop there if Discover can’t match or beat that offer.
