The first time I received a rebate from the Discover Card, my bank refused to accept the check for deposit.

It seems that the head teller had told all the branch tellers not to *cash* "Discover Checks" -- that is, the checks that Discover supplied to account holders that they could use to initiate cash advances.

The reason for this was that the bank was unable to verify that the account holder had sufficient credit. Apparently the bank was able to verify this with Visa and MC.

In any case, what I was depositing (not cashing) wasn't a "Discover Check"; it was Discover's ordinary bank check payable to me, and not a cash advance.

I returned it to Discover and asked that it be replaced with a credit on my account. Discover has issued all the rebates as credits since then, which is OK with me since I do use the card a bit.
