Not really, the 10% is only up to 1500 like the regular 5% categories. The 2% is not worth abusing to much.
then you missed the boat (with both feet i must add)

Starting June first you can get double cashback. That's 10% in the rotating categories. http://www.doctorofcredit.com/discover-double-cash-promotion-double-rewards-for-12-months-10-rotating-categories-2-everywhere-double-shopdiscover/

Promotion live, includes 5% categories not sure on Discover Deals but I doubt it as the promo looks the same as Discover it Miles and that isn't included. Call 800-347-3085 to enroll, keep in mind you won't receive the double rewards till your 13th statement and you won't start receiving double rewards until your current statement closes.

I believe this is for discover deals as well but you need to wait a whole year to get the extra cash back. The regular cash back is paid as it regularly does

Very interesting idea.  Just called to check.  Unfortunately, it is AUTOMATICALLY activated when the account is opened in June or July.  It appears that if we want the July quarter bonuses of department stores, Amazon and home improvements stores, we need to wait to APPLY in July. 

Too bad.  I wanted to do an AOR today.  How is Discover on approving an application a month after a big AOR?

I wonder how it works if I have the card already - can I wait to activate until July?

Otherwise I'll just have to eat out a lot this month :)
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Don't think so. You might have to fight for it but the T&C's are pretty clear.

8. Double First Year Cash Back:After the first 12 consecutive billing periods that your new account is open, we will double all the cash back rewards you've earned and apply them to your account in the next billing cycle. You've earned rewards when they have posted to your account by the end of the 12th consecutive billing period. You will not receive Double Cash Back if your account is closed or no longer in the cash back reward program as of the award date. This promotional offer may not be offered in the future.
