NEW CASTLE, DELAWARE -- If you're considering getting a Discover Card, please reconsider. Discover was my longest held credit card until they recently closed the account.

Notice of CHANGES TO YOUR STANDARD RATE FOR PURCHASES. MY RATE WILL CHANGED BASED "ON THE HIGHER COST OF DOING BUSINESS DUE TO THE CHALLENGING ECONOMIC ENVIRONMENT". IT WILL NOW BE PRIME PLUS 8.99%. BESIDE BREATHING, THIS IS MY ECONOMIC REWARD FOR TRYING TO KEEP MY CREDIT INTACT? I WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE COUNTLESS PEOPLE WHO WERE PART OF INCLUDING ME IN REPAYING SOMEONE ELSE'S BAD CREDIT. FIRST I WOULD LIKE TO THANK JULIE LOEGER OF DISCOVER AND COUNTLESS OTHERS

Closing Your Account
I had paid my Discover bill in full and had a $29.00 credit on the account. I called the company and asked that they refund my $29.00 and close my account. (1st request) I was asked why I wanted to close ... read full review2 Replies - Latest reply on 08/01/2009
I HATE DISCOVER CARD. I have two charges on my Discover Card, and have asked that they be placed in dispute, only to discover (no pun intended) that the charges, which total $1,118.95 have been placed on my account again. I was NEVER provided an opportunity to present my case to Discover Card.

Does anyone know what I can do?
OK, I have to respond.
I have worked for Discover and some of the "reviews" are just so unfair and basically nothing but whining. I can tell you first hand that Discover trains its employees to take ... read full review4 Replies - Latest reply on 12/24/2008
HENDERSON, NEVADA -- On October 7, 2007 I accepted an offer for a $25.00 dollar gift card to RED LOBSTER restaurants for $20.00 out of my cash back bonus on my discover card. Sounds like a good deal, right? Well it is now April 28, 2008 and I have not yet received said gift card and they will not put my $20.00 back into my bonus plan. Can you say RIPOFF!

If anyone gets a call with such an offer just tell them to give you the CASH!!
COLORADO -- My father (who is elderly) had his Discover card come up for renewal. All other credit cards you can register your card online - but not Discover! He tried to call them and thought he'd gotten through ... read full review4 Replies - Latest reply on 05/01/2008
Discover Card lied
Discover Card flat out lied to me. One month I got my statement and the APR had all of a sudden gone down to 3.99%. I was happy that it was so low so I called them to find out what I had done to get ... read full review9 Replies - Latest reply on 05/01/2008
Never use discover card. They are nasty, mean, unfriendly...I've exhausted bad words to describe it.

I had a dispute for several months and it never got solved. I ended up paying the money I was not supposed to. They are giant, when you have a dispute with them, you can never win. Yes, they made some dirty money out of me, but they will have nightmares! And they no longer can because I have cancelled it. They will lose more money because of the bad reputation it has won!
After all the Discover Card bashing I read here I had to write a review demonstrating the opposite experience my wife and I have had with the company.
Discover Card's customer service has been exemplary for us - through theft, billing, charge backs, and every other contact we've had with the company the past 4 years. Through their cash back program we've received over $700 worth of products without a hiccup. I also think that Discover Card's website is one of the best. Easy on the eyes and intuitive to navigate.
Yes, the terms of service are difficult to find and read - but that's par for the course with just about any CC you find these days. If you don't do your homework, you won't pass the Credit Card 101 class!
GEORGIA -- Last month I was upset with Discover and wrote a review about the company. They had laughed at me when I asked to play the recording that would prove what they had told me during the conversation in which ... read full review2 Replies - Latest reply on 03/29/2006
OHIO -- My girlfriend received a phone call at 130 pm from one of the telephone solicitors. She explained that she wasn't interested and the call ended. At 830 pm, another solicitor called. When he asked me if I was interested in a Discover card, she told him no, that she was extremely busy studying right now, please don't call back anymore. He continued explaining the benefits of the card, ignoring her requests to take her off of their calling lists because she was not interested. The only way she was able to stop the harrassment was to ask to speak to his supervisor. His supervisor asked if she had any questions. She mentioned that she wasn't interested, to put her on a do not call list and wanted to know why the solicitor continued to persist. He mentioned that solicitor was trying to pay for college.

Because of how the solicitor and his supervisor represented your company, she will never consider a credit card, loan or any other financial service from Discover. It is disappointing to know that a company like Discover still employs these types of tactics.
