Everyday Purchases: 4 Ways to Save Money or Earn Cash Back with Discover Deals
It goes without saying that major purchases â€” a new TV or kitchen appliance, for example â€” warrant a thorough discount search before buying. But too often, the ordinary, everyday purchases you may buy on a regular basis might not seem to have the same savings potential as some discounts to be found on larger purchases.
That need not be the case for Discover cardmembers. Discover Deals gives cardmembers the chance to save or earn extra cash back on purchases at a host of partner retailersâ€”many of which may already be in your regular rotation of stores and websites. Here are five ways to make sure you’re using Discover Deals to save on everyday purchases.
Earn bigâ€‘time cash back that never expires.
1. Don’t rule out food.
Americans spend an average of $7,023 a year on food according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. 1Â Depending on your income, that’s a potentially significant portion of your budget. Discover Deals can save you money â€” whether you’re buying a quick snack or weekly groceries â€” with deals in the Grocery, Food & Treat category. Get Cashback Bonus rewards and/or discounts when you buy online or at checkout. The program is available to any cardmember, and the extra cash back you earn accumulates on top of the regular rewards you’d earn on the purchase.
2. Check Deals before buying clothes â€” especially the basics.
If you’re like the average American family, you’ll spend just over $1,800 annually on apparel, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics â€” unless you find ways to cut your clothing costs. 2Â Save money on everyday clothing like socks and underwear by browsing the Fashion & Accessories Deals.
Â 3. Save on routine home maintenance expenses.
Regular home maintenance and repairs might not be as much fun as a home renovation project, but Discover Cardmembers can still save money on everything from light bulbs to cleaning supplies. Take a look at the Home & Garden Deals to find the latest discounts and Cashback Bonus specials on home-related items.

Plus, using Deals to take good care of your car, truck or SUV can even save you money down the line, if only because a well-cared-for car is a less likely source of trouble as it ages.
