Discover Card’s Rewards Are Very Generous

In addition to that, I was clicking through the site and noticed that you can use a bill pay feature on Discover and earn 1% back. This feature is identical to US Bank’s online bill pay. If you don’t have a US Bank and have Discover this would be an excellent alternative.
