Good Card
2014-05-13
The card is good for someone who wants their first credit card such as a college student. The benefits are great but the only thing is that the 5% cash back program which switches every 3 months or so is limited. There are a lot of other things you can get cash back on don't get me wrong but its not as much.

Discover for College
2014-05-13
As a college student, the It Card is the only card I could get. I don't have credit being so young, Discover gave me a chance to start building. However, I still had to have my parents co-sign for it. I love my card, the online account allows me to track everything I buy. I haven't used any other services yet, but so far so good.

Great Starter

This is a good card for young people just starting off and learning about credit. The free credit score at every statement is super convenient.

Great starter card
2014-05-12
This Discover card is great for students who want to build their credit history. It has a lot of tools to track expenditure, your FICO credit score and more and also has 5% cashback on various stuff depending on the time of the year.

Great Credit Card Company
2014-05-12
I have had no problems with Discover except the FICO credit score, I received my score the when I applied for the card but I have not seen it on my statements since. This is not a big deal except that it is in the commercials as one of their big perks for monthly FICO scores.

Wow, What a Card!
2014-05-12
Honestly speaking, I can say without a doubt the Discover It card has been the best card I have ever used (I have had it a full year). The customer service is phenomenal, with real people picking up the phone! The online features are incredible with Spend Tracker being one of my favorite ones! And I have recommended this card to several of my friends over other cards because I feel Discover really did me well with this card. I gave this card 5 stars for a reason, because I feel it truly is deserving of such a score. I don't believe anyone could go wrong with the Discover It card, and I would recommend it to anyone!
