  1. Unfortunately “Bonus is considered interest and will be reported on IRS form 1099-INT.” kills it for me. Not enough bang for the hassle.

    • Something to also consider. One might have to earn $160.
      to have $100. in your hand. Think about that.
      # 2. All of your interest in your checking and saving accounts are tax-reportable NOW, you can’t get around it.
      # 3. Probably your accounts are not earning .95 %. And you will earn the lower interest rate.
      # 4. If you can fund part or all of the $15K with cc
      you are earning more than $100.

  2. Another point to consider is that Discover Savings yield 0.95% APY compared to 0.01% from other major banks.

    • Plenty of banks pay 0.95% and up. Barclays is 1% and UFB is more than that I believe. But it’s good because at least you won’t be forfeiting the interest you could have earned elsewhere.

      • Yeah but not plenty of banks give you $100 up front!
        .95% is a pretty good value for a savings account and the $100 is more than what Barclays would give you for at least 13 1/2 years if you had the Discover the same amount of time at their present rates…Just the first year w/ 1% interest, BCY is only $7 ahead considering monthly compound.
