Amazon and Discover open an exclusive digital storefront for the holidays

With the holiday season coming into focus, many will be looking for ways to extend warm feelings of nostalgia and shorten sinking feelings of holiday shopper’s anxiety. That means convenience can be a gift all its own. Discover and Amazon enter the spirit of giving by launching The Discover Store – offering Discover cardmembers exclusive Amazon discounts through December.

The promotion, which kicked off in October, gives Discover cardmembers access to:

  • The Discover Store on Amazon: A dedicated digital storefront on Amazon that offers exclusive access to discounts and deals on a curated selection of products from Amazon Launchpad.
  • Holiday Pop-Ins at Amazon 4-star and Amazon Books Stores: Discover will sponsor holiday pop-ins with curated selections of the season’s hottest gifts across select stores. On select days throughout the month of December, select stores will feature free gift wrap for purchases made with a Discover card.
  • 5% Cash Back at Amazon: From now through December, Discover it® and Discover More® cardmembers can earn 5% Cashback Bonus on up to $1,500 in purchases at Amazon stores, Amazon.com, and more, when they activate.

Szabolcs Paldy, Senior Vice President of marketing with Discover, described the offer. “This exciting endeavor aims to deliver a truly rewarding customer experience during the holiday shopping season. We’re looking forward to working with Amazon to make it easier for Discover cardmembers to shop and save.” 

This opportunity is no doubt a welcome option for Discover cardmembers, who can currently link their Amazon.com and Discover accounts to make purchases at a 1:1 ratio. Specifically, those who have the Discover it® Miles card in their wallet can do well to rack up some rewards for holiday travel.

But even if you aren’t a Discover cardmember, keep an eye out for issuer holiday offers coming down the pipeline. And if you’ve yet to redeem rewards from this previous summer, now is a strategically advantageous time to start deciding how and where to make some moves for the holidays.
