same here, I need to spent $500 still on my discover. Is Staples a department store? What else qualifies as a department store other than Macy's, JCP, Nordstorm, etc?

Paypal.com is listed as an online retailer. Will Kiva loans work?
Also how about just sending money to a friend/relative using paypal? Even with the CC fee, you would come out ahead.

I would be weary. paypal is fine, but if you do too much, they have been known to freeze an account for review!

I wouldn't consider this to be reliable because my Serve load was 10/2 and statement closed 10/5, but I did not receive 5% back on the statement. But it's been mentioned up thread that late transactions often carry over to the next statement.

Maybe that means you won't get 5% cash back.
I also bought something on ebay but it is category as service not Merchandise. Could I still get 5% for this?

Data point:
I got $75 cb on 1k AP and $500 AGC. There's nothing else that would have qualified for 5% cb. On my other discover card I got $50 for 1k AP. My online Geico payment did not earn 5% cb.
