I have thought about this issue before, but never was motivated to mention it online before today: I buy something on shopdiscover.com with my Discover Card (promising, as an example, 5% back), the billing arrives, but I receive nothing but the normal points for that item. When I call and ask about it, the scenario is always the same--they say it can take 6-8 weeks for those points to post. Well, as far as I know they have never posted in the past, because there is never a breakout in the later statements that the points are for earlier purchases on shopdiscover.com. I really think this is a poor way of doing business; if there is a delay, they can at least document in those later statements that x points are for shopdiscover previous billing periods. When I point this out to the phone rep, she simply says, "that's how it's done." It sounds to me like a good way of evading points posting problems.
