I’ve had a Discover card for a while now, and I absolutely love it! I get great rewards, low APR, and no yearly fee!
I have had a card for many years now. At first didn't like how much the APR was but after comparing them to Citi Visa card they had a better rate. They have rolling 2% cashback categories that keep you incentivized to use your card.
Low percentage rates. Credit Limits are decent. Good perks with the cards.
I would advise you to be careful when going with Discover. High rates and I didn't have a good experience with their staff at all.
I started as a secured card with a $500 limit and just after a year graduated to an unsecured with a $2,000 limit. As long as you're responsible with the card they will convert you to unsecured. Highly recommended
My experiences with discover has been good thus far, I have only been with them a few months but I have had no issues whatsoever. Applying for a discover card was a very easy process, hopefully after 6 months or so of keeping my account in good standing I’ll qualify for a credit increase. The whole purpose of me getting a credit card was to help improve my credit score and in the short amount of time I have seen a big improvement in my score.
Outstanding costumer service, couldn’t be happier.
seem like good cards but a some places still don't take them, so that is annoying. Otherwise they seem good.
It used to be the best credit card in my wallet but not any more. With recent changes in the customer benefits, I am no more incline to Discover. They have reduced a lot of benefits including Purchase Protection and extended warranty. There is no use if my credit card cannot protect me on my purchases. Also, recently customer care have changed a lot and have become more pain when contacted.
I've had good experience with Discover except how they handle a dispute...it's terrible. I've had to file a few disputes after I hit a dead end with the merchant. Discover doesn't appear to investigate, the just side with the seller, even when there is an obvious fraud problem. I guess they don't want to make waves? So much for "the customer is always right". Discover's motto is "the customer is always wrong".
Always polite fast service. Willing to do waterver it takes to make customer happy
good take what you get and be happy it's my omly answer to this quesrion
I got behind when my husband passed away and made payment arrangements that were paid in full and on time. When I applied again they denied me bc of that previous account that I worked with them.
Willing to offer rewards to those rebuilding credit
I always get prompt, courteous and reliable service from Discover. I had credit cards from other companies, but Discover is the best.
I had an account with Discover for 21 years; they were the first card I received as a freshman in college. Received an email out of the nowhere telling me my account had been closed because they could no longer meet my needs. I had a stellar payment history. My balance was less than 15% of my total credit limit. Repeated attempts for a more informative cancellation reason were met with repeated, "A business decision was made". Their business decision left monthly auto payments unpaid due to the lack of forewarning that my account would be terminated. The reason they get a two out of five stars is that they were my primary card for 21 years prior to the rude and sudden termination of services.
Great card, interest ridiculous. I've been a loyal, credit worthy customer for years, but still pay a high interest rate
Pay in full, so don't care what interest rate is, like cash back bonus
My card has been hacked three times. Last month, I called and told them I would be traveling in the Caribbean and they sent me emails every day telling me it was used on an international charge. The day I left the cruise, my card was denied for no reason. The card is thru Synchrony Bank with Sam's Club.
They have always been very quick in response to my questions and concerns.
Accepted everywhere. US- based customer service which actually answers questions and helps resolves issues. Good cash back experience.
Discover discriminates against [email protected] I was told after I was approved for my card, that I had to go through security process, which basically they asked me to proof that the social security number I provide them it was mine and I had to proof that I had the legal right to live in the US. The true all american credit card company is racist and by its discriminatory policies furthers aggravates the current political issues in this country.
Discover has great people working for them! They’re helpful and patient. They truly value their customers. Great company to be a part of!
Love their Rewsrds Program - they make it easy to redeem points.
They have been great about changing dates and increased credit and cash advances.
Because they cut make changes to your card without letting me know .
Never had a problem, excellent customer service
Prompt customer service. Reasonable interest rate.
Money back with purchases is a plus and helps customers on using the card.
I love the cash back bonus, and they have increased my limit to an amount that is a wonderful cushion if an emergency arose.
Great cash back rewards that change monthly so you're not always trying to find one place to earn the rewards
0 interest for 12 months cash rewards and matching credit rewards
accepted everywhere, great terms, easy to read statements
Their cash back rewards. You get actual cash, not points applied to something else.
Fair good pricing and reliable. outstanding customer service,
they added over $800,00 in charges this is the biggest rip off company. They should be wearing masks
I have had this card for years and called to review my interest rate and no changes were made. Didn't seem like the operator even looked into it. The card has been paid off for years and won't being using it anytime soon.
GREAT customer service - great cashback deals
Good customer service products are very very good Thank you
Useful everywhere, lower apr rates.. 0% for a year
