CORRECTING and REPLACING Consumers Rank Discover in a Tie for Highest Customer Satisfaction in J.D. Power Study

Please replace the release issued August 28, 2014 at 4:03 a.m. ET with the following corrected version due to multiple revisions.

The corrected release reads:


Discover (NYSE: DFS) has achieved the highest customer-satisfaction ranking among U.S. card companies, tying for top rating in J.D. Power's annual nationwide study, which was announced today.

Discover ranks highest or second highest in every major category of the 2014 J.D. Power U.S. Credit Card Satisfaction Study SM, which is based on the opinions of more than 19,000 credit card users. Discover received the highest rating in the area of customer interaction, which focuses on how cardmembers perceive the service received through key engagement channels, such as website, call centers, automated phone system, online chat/email and mobile phone. Discover also ranked highly in the categories of rewards, credit card terms, benefits and services and problem resolution.

“As we seek to help cardmembers achieve brighter financial futures, Discover aims to make every single customer interaction a positive one,” said David Nelms, chairman and CEO of Discover. “We are so grateful for the honor of serving our cardmembers and for the recognition they’ve bestowed upon the 14,500 Discover employees who focus every day on providing them with the best products and service possible.”

Customer satisfaction is part of the company’s DNA. The Discover Card was introduced in 1986 as the first cash rewards credit card with no annual fee.
