Discover Enforcing Gift Card Exclusion for Apple Pay!

Update:  Discover is also sending out emails that give one time courtesies.  I don't really know what to make of that and who gets what.  I received both and only received one one time courtesy, though others report multiple one time courtesies.

Holy Cow!

I just got an email from Discover that said the following:

I assumed Discover would not have the ability to see what you purchased.  Apparently I was wrong!  It's a good thing I've been mostly doing merchandise reselling with it!

I have many such email from Discover.  I don't remember buying so many gift cards, but it is possible.  I will have to go back and look at my transactions and possibly submit receipts.  We'll see how this develops. It could be that they are sending emails to anyone who is consistently spending a lot of money with Apple Pay.  The logical explanation being they are buying gift cards.  Already some readers are saying that they received the email and never bought a gift card with Apple Pay.

You are hereby forewarned!  Keep your receipts when you Apple Pay!
