Bought 2 Grocery Everywhere, no double discount. Bought 2 Style Everywhere on a different day, nothing doubled either.

I have purchased gift cards 4 times so far, only time I received double dip was when I did 1x GE and 1x DE. Will try again today.

11 transactions across 3 stores, no rewards number, 10 of 2x ge and one that had 1x GE 1x se. None have triggered double bonus, I'm very jealous of those of you that have gotten it...

I have gotten 399.90, 389.90, 379.90 across about 40 transactions so far. 389.90 is the most common and it seems to be triggered by rewards number but not always.

I did 4 sets of 2x SE and used my phone number. The first 3 sets rang up at $389.90 and then needed an override for the 4th set and that one rang up at $399.90. Maybe there is a limit of 3 sets per store and once an override is needed the discount won’t apply anymore?

I compared transactions with DH and he got a several triple treats on five transactions, I got double dips only and it's from the same store. Haven't cracked the code for these random surprises but we're not complaining. DH didn't give phone#, when total came up he pressed print receipt and then told cashier he wanted to enter his acct number so cashier had to go back, pressed continue, the total then was down $389.90 and pressed another button, it went down to $379.90! Same thing for five b2b transactions of GE and DE. I came next and tried to duplicate his luck (GE, DE, SE) but got double treats "only" but nevertheless very satisfied with this run. Store was quiet, we were the only ones in the front register, cashier was glad to ring us up and chat a bit since most people may be waiting on tax free days for school supplies that's we're the ones shopping. Big thanks to OD/OM for the treats that made up for disappointments in July.

Got my first "double" after 25 transactions on a set of Five Backs. I have not put my phone number in for any of these transactions.

This has to be a regional blessing for some. From what I've heard, some regions haven't seen a single 'bonus' discount, just the normal $10 which of course only pays the fee on 2 cards (so without a 5x type card it's not worth it for most).

Found on Reddit, double comes when the cashier enters your rewards number after getting rung up. Triple comes when they enter it after you select how you want your receipt. Use that information how you want...
