Discover Refer-A-Friend Program $100 Bonuses for Both Parties with Discover Credit Cards

The Discover Refer-A-Friend program offers $100 bonuses for both parties when current Discover card members refer a new Discover credit card applicant.

Update: Because of the Double First Year Cash Back promotion, new card applicants who receive the $50 referral bonus will have it doubled to a $100 bonus after the first 12 consecutive billing periods that your new account is open. Current card members who are within your first 12 billing periods of card membership will also have your $50 referral bonuses doubled to $100 at the end of your first 12 billing periods.

If you have a Discover consumer card, you can get a $50 cash bonus for each friend that becomes a card member for up to 10 referrals per calendar year.

Plus, new Discover card applicants can get a $50 bonus when you sign up through a current Discover card member’s referral and make 1 purchase within 3 months (doubled to $100 after your first 12 billing periods).

Discover it Card $100 New Member Bonus

You can sign up through this Discover it Card Referral Link that was provided by a reader to earn a $50 bonus with your new account.

You’ll get the $50 Cashback Bonus after you make your first purchase within 3 months of being approved.

The bonus will be applied to your account within 8 weeks.

The $50 bonus will then be doubled to a $100 bonus (extra $50 added) after your first 12 billing periods.

Discover it for Students $50 New Member Bonus

Please note that the Discover Student Card referral link is currently not available.

You can apply through this Discover it for Students Referral Link that was provided by a reader to get a $50 bonus after your first purchase within 3 months.

This is a great deal if you are interested in the Discover it for Students card, as the highest bonus that you can earn otherwise is only for $20, and the referral program more than doubles that incentive.

    Hello Bing,

    Thank you very much for providing your link to the Discover student card $50 referral bonus offer.

    I didn’t realize that the referral program was available for both the consumer card and the student card.

    We’ve added your student referral link to our above article, so that readers can access the $50 bonus for either the consumer or student card.

    Thanks again, really appreciate you helping out. Max

    They are actually offering $100 cash back when you spend $500 within three months of opening the card. You do need to use a specific referral link and can find a bunch here:

    Hello Bob,

    Thanks for mentioning that offer.

    I reviewed the links at the site you listed, and I did not see any mention of a $100 bonus, just the $50 bonus (you can click on one of their links and then review the terms page all the way at the bottom where you’ll see the $50 bonus listed and not $100).

    If you have a direct link to the $100 offer, you may feel free to list it here.

    Here is the direct link to the $100 bonus offer that I have:

    You can see the $100 offer displayed at that promo page.

    Appreciate your comment and good luck to you. Max
