Review by

Not all credit cards are the same - and the Discover It card is proof of that. With a long intro period with no APR, a low rate for balance transfers and no annual fee. The application is available online and only takes about five minutes to complete. A credit decision is often provided in under a minute after submitting, which will also tell applicants of their APR and credit line if approved. There is expedited delivery of the card, giving cardholders their Discover fast to begin making purchases.

The card is accepted around the globe and online. Cash back is also earned on the account. The cashback rewards don't expire and there is no max to what can be earned in a year. 1% on all net purchases is earned and 5% within certain categories that change quarterly. The cash back can then be used for such things as a statement credit or a Discover gift card. The card is affordable to maintain throughout the year. There is no overlimit fee and no foreign transaction fees. There is also never a fear of the APR increasing if a payment is made late. Other features include online account management and mobile apps.
