Discover it® Cash Back vs. Discover it® Chrome Gas & Restaurant Card

Two solid cashback credit cards with no annual fee.

Updated

Fact checked
The main difference is that the Discover it® Cash Back offers accelerated cash back on rotating categories each quarter, while the Discover it® Chrome Gas & Restaurant Card offers accelerated cash back only on gas and dining. However, the cashback rate of the latter cannot match the rate you earn with the Discover it® Cash Back. Otherwise, these two Discover cards have many similarities, including a $0 annual fee and a long 0% intro APR period on purchases and balance transfers.
