Discover it Doubles Down

New Discover it cardholders can now double their cash rewards at the end of their first year. With this new offer, cardholders can earn throughout the year because there are no limits and points never expire. When it comes to redemptions, they can cash in any amount they want at any time.

This new initiative is part of Discover’s ongoing effort to give consumers more perks. “This is a great way for new cardholders to test drive Discover and experience the generous rewards and industry-recognized customer service,” said Ryan Scully, vice president of marketing. “Doubling cash back complements other recent innovations that customers genuinely want,” he added.

Miles and more

People who use Discover it, as well as the other cards in Discovers portfolio, earn 1.5 miles on every dollar spent on all purchases. When they use miles to book a flight there are no blackout dates and they can book on any airline. Discover will also reimburse cardholders for in-flight purchases whether it’s a sandwich, a beer or Wi-Fi. There is no annual fee for Discover it or any other Discover card.

Security, security, security

Discover recently launched Freeze It, which lets customers turn their accounts off and on with their smartphone. If they think the card is lost or stolen, they can turn it off without having to contact Discover. If they find it ten minutes later, they can turn it back on.

While the account is frozen a person can still manage it, whether that’s checking a balance or making a payment. Freeze it can be turned on via the Discover app, online or by calling the toll free number 1-800-DISCOVER.

Discover also offers customers access to their FICO credit score for free, giving them another layer of security on their account. Cardholders are also not responsible for fraudulent charges.
Discover Financial Services was founded in 1986 and while they issue the Discover card, they also offer consumers other kinds of financial products including checking and savings accounts, personal loans, home loans, private student loans, certificates of deposit and money market accounts through its direct banking business. They also run the Discover Network, PULSE, and Diners Club International.
