Review by

The Escape by Discover Card is a credit card specially intended for consumers having good or excellent credit. Accepted members will receive purchase and balance transfer APR based on credit worthiness.

All members are privy to a card rewards program earning double miles per $1 spent on all purchases. There is no limit to miles earnable within a yearly period and those earned will not expire unless the card account becomes inactive. Members can redeem miles for cash, travel credit, and gift certificates.

Online account management is useful to card members who'd like to monitor spending and card balance over a period of billing cycles.

Other benefits for members to avail of include zero fraud liability, fraud specialists, customer support, travel delay insurance, lost luggage insurance, auto rental insurance, and online bill payment.

Email reminders are delivered to remind members against late payment.
