Earn big‑time cash back that never expires.
Tool Kit for Their First Home
If your new graduate is moving out of a college dorm or fraternity/sorority house and into their first “grown-up” apartment, they’ll need a few basic tools. Look for a starter tool kit that includes hammers, screwdrivers, pliers and wrenches, and maybe even a cordless drill. Keep your costs down by taking advantage of the current Home & Garden deals. Depending on the merchant partner and the deal, you may enjoy a discount and/or earn Cashback Bonus® rewards at checkout when you make the purchase with your Discover card.
Life after college often involves more cooking at home, which means lots of options for kitchen supplies as gifts for recent grads. Find discounts and online savings on basics like dishtowels, dishes, cutlery, glasses and small appliances (toaster, kettle, coffeemaker, electric can opener) through the Home & Garden section.
New Tech for a New Job
That first job after college is definitely something to celebrate. Help position a college grad for success with a new tablet or laptop. Before heading out to shop, look online at the current Electronics Deals to save.
Golf Clubs or Other Sports Equipment
Now that cramming for finals is over, college graduates should have more time to pursue their favorite pastimes. When thinking of gifts for college grads, don’t forget favorite sports or activities. Golf clubs, a new baseball glove or a fitness tracker may be the perfect gift — and you could save big with Discover Deals from the Sporting Goods & Outdoors category.
Luggage for Travel Adventures
Whether your new grad is heading off on a post-graduate travel adventure or a first career, a new set of luggage can help him or her enjoy their journey. Browse the Online Shopping and Fashion & Accessories deals to find current savings and rewards on luggage.
