Will you consider the Discover it card yes or no delta points blog

Now to the results. This was most interesting to me and here is why. The Discover it card is one I will personally go for next round of cards. Why, as almost 50% of you said it has some real sweet spots where you can crank up the cash back and make this one a small gem in your travel cash yearly play. I am with you guys there plus more importantly for me it is a card I have not had nor a bank where I have had almost all the other cards. This works for me.

The funny thing is one of the reasons I have NOT had one for a long time is the same reason a HUGE part of the other 50% responded about. So many have had a really bad experience with Discover; I can tell you I had a very bad one too. But notice that one of the key features of the Discover it card is US based humans at the other end! Translation to me is they are taking the customer service issues in the past and putting them behind them. But hey, worst case, you don’t have to love Discover to get some nice perks each year right? Just sayin’ 😉

  1. I just got the discover IT card because of no annual fee. I plan to just keep it to increase Average Age of Accounts in my credit score.

    The verification process was ridiculous. I was pending on the web application. I called in and they wanted to call my landline to verify it was me.
