Many credit cards cover rental car insurance rather than purchasing insurance offered by rental agencies as long as the rental cost, taxes and fees for the rental car are applied to the Discover It card. Does Discover It have that more

After reading the FAQ on the company's site it seems that the Discover it card doesn't offer rental car insurance.

I chose the Discover IT card five years ago. I primarily did this for the cashback benefits and low interest rates. I use the 5% cash back for my Christmas gifts each year. It winds up savings me quite a bit of money in the long run. However I really like their fraud prevention and customer service too. I like that I can get a friendly representative at nearly any hour of the day.

I chose the Discover It card a few years ago. I had had a Capital One Card before and HATED dealing with Customer Service. The first time I called Discover, I was hooked. The customer service representatives speak English clearly. In addition, the cash-back perks are great! I think one of my favorite things about the Discover It is the fraud protection. Overall this is a great card.

This is by far my "go to" credit card. My personal favorite feature is that if I misplace it, without having to call anyone, I can instantly freeze it so nobody can use it. The customer support that comes with this card is next to none, I rarely ever have to wait to talk to anyone. Also, I spend a ton of money on Amazon, and near Christmas time you get 5% cashback, which is a large amount.

I think my only real problem with this card (and the thing that stops it from getting 5 stars out of me.) is that there are quite a few places that do not more

I have this card, and I think most important factor for choosing , Discover it credit card, 5% cash back bonus, and double all cash back at the end of your first year. Most important, 100% us based customer service. I used have other card before, and whenever I called, it used to go to Philippine, ad it was awful, they could not resolve anything, except talking in buttery language.. You can earn cash back, shopping on line with amazon or with other sites. As long as you pay off every month, i think this card is perfect. Only thing about the card that I do not like is, it more

For years I had not gotten a credit card. I'd had a bankruptcy and thought I'd never get a decent card again. A friend suggested Discover and am glad she did. I was approved without any hassles and received my card within a week. The interest rate is pretty decent (not like that 25% the store cards charge) and I'm earning some cash back rewards on some of my purchases. I haven't had to deal with customer service yet, so I can't rate that aspect of the card service. I'm happy. My discover card is accepted everywhere and the FICO feature helps me keep track of my credit score.

This is one of the best credit cards out there! I really love using the Discover It credit card since it had no annual or over limit fee making me safe to make purchases over my limit. The security for this card is also high protected my data since I remember once I got a message of unusual activity but I just ignored it since my son took my credit card to make a grocery purchase. The only thing bad about the card is that you can't use it everywhere.

Not a while ago I had been getting a lot of offers from discover to try out their new card and so I gave it a try. I have been using it for about 2-3 months now and it is absolute garbage. Their customer service and online website is even more horrible. The thing I like about it is that it has no over limit fee so if you buy something really expensive that is over your limit you won't have to face a penalty.

I do not like this credit card at all. I am actually considering paying off the balance and canceling the card. My normal interest rate is way too high for me to comfortably pay especially when I have so many other options when it comes to using credit cards.

I love this card! The minimum payment is low, the cash back is excellent, and signing up for the bonuses is easy. I'm a young adult trying to improve my credit score, and using this card makes that a lot simpler. I have also received fast, excellent customer service every time I've had to call them.

I was getting a lot of "preapproved for a card" mail from other places, and I would usually check them out but none of them looked as appealing as the Discover It card. They often had too many stipulations or they weren't transparent with their rewards policies. I like that this card offers 1% all the time because I can use it for large purchases or big bills, and I really like the 5% back system. Being able to use the cashback was a little confusing when I tried to apply it to my Amazon bill. Apparently if you want to use it, it will not show as being applied more

Discover has been fairly good to me since receiving my Discover IT card.

I originally purchased the card because I had moved to a new state and needed float money while I searched for a job. The card came super quick with a reasonable limit on it. It helped while I found a new job and the cash reward bonus was very good too. When I first purchased it I was unable to throw the Cash Back into the card, recently that changed and I am very appreciative of it. I was able to get an additional $50 payment to the card while I pay it back.

Last year the more

I love this credit card. I first got it about a year and a half ago and it had a 0% APR introductory period of 12 months. Initially, when I was looking for a new credit card, I wanted something that didn't have any annual fees and I also wanted to be able to earn rewards with it. We recently built a house and this credit card has literally saved us THOUSANDS of dollars. It offers quarterly reward boost months in which you can receive 5% cash back on all purchases at specified retailers. Thankfully, when we were building, we were able to get 5% cashback on all our appliances, more

I really love having a credit card through Discover. Not only do they have outstanding customer service and are willing to work with you if something unforeseen happens, but they just are some of the friendliest people I've dealt with when asking general questions. The cashback feature is great and helps a lot. I try to use credit as little as possible, but Discover is the one card I feel safe using.

I have had this card for almost 8 months now and have loved having it from the moment I got accepted. I enjoy the benefits of having 100% human based customer service 24 hours a day. It is nice knowing that 1% of every purchase I make gets cash back, and on some items I get 5% depending on what the specials are that quarter. I have made a lot of money back using the card. It is a very sound choice for credit card due to its great support, and amazing perks. I definitely would suggest this to anyone who is in the market for a new card.

I've been a Discover Card holder for more than 20 years and it's the best card ever. I get 5% Cashback just for using it which adds up on gas. It's also nice to know I can call and speak with a human representative 24 hours a day in case I need to inquire about anything I need to know on my purchases. A while back I had erroneous purchases placed on my card and was alerted by phone immediately to make sure the purchases were authorized. In addition, the no annual fee is a huge plus as well as the no overlimit fee. It's the best card to be more

I love my Discover card. They are very understanding and willing to help. It was my very first credit card and I would never go with another company. The card has great benefits and the credit limit is reasonable. Their customer service is the best in the area.

I am very happy with my Discover card. It makes it easy to get cashback rewards and the quarterly extra cash back categories are accessible and realistic (not obscure categories that I'm not going to make purchases in). I only occasionally have trouble with places not accepting the card, but that hasn't happened for awhile.

I really love my discover card. I like the cash back rewards that I get from it, and I like the updates that they send to my email. The only thing I don't like about it is that it's not accepted everywhere, especially abroad. I do love that there is no fee though. I would recommend this card.

The Discover It card is a great card to have. One benefit is the first time you are late with the payment, there is no fee. Also the customer service is great, any time I have any questions or need help with anything they are very friendly and are quick to provide a solution. I would recommend this credit card to anyone.

I have been a discover card holder for the last 14 years and like their 0% balance transfers and low interest rates. I don't think there are many cards out there anymore that offer rates in the 7% range like Discover does.

Discover It is a great card to have. The benefits of having the card are great! One of the benefits that you get with Discover It is not having to pay penalties on your first late payment, they forgive it for the first time. Customer service is great too! Don't have to wait on the phone talking to a robot. Plus, they will even lower your APR if you lose your job! Overall it is a great credit card to have!

The cashback awards are great, 1% with additional percentage off in certain categories. I received a 0% line of credit to pay off another card. The customer service is excellent as well as the fraud prevention services. On more than a couple occasions, I have received a call from them asking if I had attempted certain purchases. One time it was me, and the others they had caught a frauduIent transaction and reversed charges immediately. The dispute charges section on their website is flawless, and has saved me a LOT of money. am waiting for a card from them with the smart chip embedded as 'swiping' the magnetic strip is more

Love that it is accepted all over and no matter what I use it for, there is always some form of cash back. Even certain categories will have periodic levels of higher cash back. Like, for a bit there was 5% cash back on gas. Also, customer service has been great. I had to dispute a charge and they were beyond helpful through the whole process.

I have the discover card. I love this card. The first thing that is great is the online support and options, I also get cashback, up to 5%, on so many things that I use and I love that it changes. One time I can choose to use it for gas and another time for restaurants, the options seem to be available during peak times I would use them most for example for the Christmas season last year I received cash back for on line shopping it was very helpful and I was able to get more because of the points. The thing I like most about the cash back more

Love this card.. Great rewards program offer up to 5% of specified purchases every 3 months and 1% on everything else. Awesome customer service was there when i needed them when i lost my card. shut it down and sent a new one out within minutes. And when i had a some business trying to charge me after i had cancelled they told me not to worry about it and that they would take care of it.. And to top it off Monthly FICO score updates included at no charge.. Discover the possibilities for yourself.

I have not had any issues with my card. I have had issues in the past with other cards. Discover has not harassed me by calling even when I have paid. Also I get great cash rewards on purchases. This is the kind of card that is perfect to use over and over to make money off of my purchases. I love that each month I get an updated FICO score so I can closely monitor my score.

We've never had any issues with this card. We were accepted immediately, received the card in good time and were given a very high credit limit compared to some of our other cards. We loved the 5% cash back, although we were a bit disappointed that it was only in certain stores, at certain times of the year. Should have read the fine print, I guess. At least you can make 1% back if you forget to sign up for the cash back bonus. Our other cards have a free FICO credit score on them so that didn't make a difference.

My discover card is great! There is no monthly fee, no interest for 12 months, and as long as you make the minimum payment, there are no problems. I also like that every time I receive my statement, I get a credit score, very helpful and easy to use!

Well it's a credit card first and for most. So obviously it has interest rates. Whats really nice though is this whole 14 month zero percent interest. We we're having some trouble with bills, so we got online and applied for the Discover Card, waited about seven days and received it in the mail. We activated the card and it helped us out so much in the past couple of months. I will say though, one downside is trying to pay your rent in cash with a credit card. A lot of older people don't know about things like the Square Card Reader, so we had to try and get more

I really like having this credit card because I can get cash back and sometimes the rewards are higher depending on the promotions that are going on. I remember I think I got 5% back on gas for a three month period. The only issue with the cash back I have is that it has to reach twenty dollars before it is available to be used. A feature I really love is that I can see my FICO credit score online when I log in or on any statements I receive in the mail. Overall a great credit card and I have never had any issues or hassles with Discover.
