My Favorite Credit Card 2017-09-10

I love this card way more than my Visa. It is simple to gain and redeem Cashback. Yet my favorite feature is all the extra security. I am alerted every time a charge is made to my card, and I love the freeze feature if I should ever lose my card. So happy I switched! Also, wonderful customer service! Thank you Discover!

Great Credit Card 2017-09-09

I am highly satisfied with discover credit card. Hope I will continue with discover for long ....

First foreign credit card in my life 2017-09-04

The Discover card is super easy to apply for, especially for someone who has no credit score before(I am an international college student.) As soon as I got my SSN, I applied for this card and got approved. All the transactions I made were easy and convenient. The balance amount was also ok. The stuffs are very polite and considerate. Whenever I had any question, I just asked them. More importantly, there are a lot of discounts and coupons in this card, not to mention the cash back. I really like this card and hope you will like it, too! Thank you.
