Miles by Discover Card is a low interest credit card reserved for consumers having good credit. It's a travel rewards card offering numerous benefits including an enticing intro period.
The introductory APR period takes charge of interest on purchases and balance transfers. The intro period covers purchase interest over a long term while balance transfers are covered throughout a mid term period.
Card members are not required to pay an annual fee.
Online account management keeps card members in charge of their finance with up to date card transactions. An optional feature lets members opt to receive immediate alerts with each purchase for greater security.
Online transactions are made more sure when using secure online account numbers specially created for that purpose. Just in case, Discover still offers zero fraud liability to card members who fall victims to fraud and identity theft. A fraud specialist hotline assists those card members who need specialist assistance.
Travel accident insurance helps protect members against accidental dismemberment. In event this occurs, a spouse or other beneficiary is compensated. Auto rental insurance comes at no extra cost. Those card members who qualify will have rental cars insured on their behalf.
Card members who take advantage of the fee free travel rewards program will earn miles with every purchase. During the first 12 months in charge, card members earn 1,000 miles whenever they purchase an item for the month.
The first $3,000 in travel and restaurant purchases earns double miles, while everything else earns a single mile per $1 spent. Grocery purchases within a specified period also earn double miles. There is no limit to miles accruable and miles already earned do not expire.
For more miles, a card member may shop from Shop Discover, an exclusive online shop selling goods from reputable merchants.
Miles earned are used to redeem travel credit, cash, merchandise, and gift certificates. Members are allowed to book with any travel agent and there are seat restrictions or black out dates.
Miles by Discover Card could just be what you need. Timely email reminders help you stay away from accumulating card debt while avoiding late payment fees.
Interested persons are advised to go through card agreement before applying.
