Discover Credit Card

Discover Credit Card - Costs and Features

The Discover credit card is issued by the Discover Bank, owned Morgan Stanley.  There are over 50 million Discover card members.  As a Discover credit card holder, you will be part of the largest independent credit card network in the country.

Discover Credit Card - Advantages

The primary differences between Discover Card and others are as follows:

  • Discover Card does not charge an annual fee.

  • Discover Card actually PAYS you for using the card - called the Cashback Bonus Award.

  • Another key difference is that Discover Card is issued by one bank and one company (like American Express). This is fundamentally different from Visa and MasterCard, which are handled by hundreds of different issuers, each with their own unique version of the card. This can make it easier to deal with Discover Card because they are in a position to solve complex problems, resolve disputes over the phone, etc.
