Discover Financial Services today announced the national launch of Discover it TM, a no annual fee credit card which offers cardmembers the rewards and service for which the company is known, while providing a unique combination of features, benefits and an enhanced customer experience.
Cardmembers can expect the best of what Discover offers and more with this new product, as the Discover it card promises to be:
- Fair: No annual fee. No overlimit fee. No pay-by-phone fee. No foreign transaction fee. And no fee for your first late payment. Plus Discover won't raise a cardmember’s APR for paying late.*
- Safe: Discover ranks among the industry’s highest in identity fraud resolution, according to the Javelin Strategy & Research Eighth Annual Card Issuer’s Safety Scorecard Report (June 2012). Plus, Discover’s $0 Fraud Liability Guarantee means cardmembers are never responsible for unauthorized charges on their account.
- Generous: Cardmembers can earn 5% Cashback Bonus in relevant categories that change throughout the year, up to a quarterly maximum, when they sign up for each 5% program. Cardmembers automatically earn 1% Cashback Bonus on all other purchases, not points. Cardmembers also earn 5-20% Cashback Bonus through the company’s online shopping portal, ShopDiscover, and can use the new Cashback Concierge, a free service that guides customers through a one-on-one online tour that helps them get the most from their rewards based on how they use their cards.
- Flexible: Cardmembers can choose their own due dates and pay until midnight (ET) online or by phone. Free online management tools, mobile apps and e-mail reminders keep cardmembers on top of their accounts.
- Human: Cardmembers have the option of immediately being connected to a live, U.S.-based customer service representative to discuss their accounts at any time. If cardmembers lose their jobs, Discover will find a way to help.
