Discover™ functions as an Internet bank with no retail branches. In addition to its trademark credit card offerings, it features a range of depository banking and loan products. Discover’s deposit rates are usually competitive with other Internet banks on Savings, Checking, Money Market, CD, and IRA CD accounts because of the lack of infrastructure costs associated with physical locations and branches.

Discover Bank offers checking, savings, CD, and Money Market accounts on its depository banking side. It offers three different types of personal checking accounts and one business checking account. Its personal checking accounts feature an interest-bearing account, a standard checking account, and a 55+ account. It offers a competitive online savings account that usually offers one of the top interest rates in the depository banking market. It offers Certificates of Deposit for terms ranging from 3 months to 10 years, which can be funded online from any existing bank account. It also offers a Money Market account that pays interest at rates similar to its savings account offerings.

Discover offers multiple web-based platforms to its customers that facilitate easy account management. Through the Discover smartphone app, customers can transfer funds, pay bills, deposit checks, and monitor account balances. Discover online banking offers a sophisticated platform through which customers can manage their accounts and get help from online banking specialists.

Discover Bank’s headquarters are located in Greenwood, Delaware, just blocks away from where it originally began as the Greenwood Trust Company. Since acquiring the Greenwood Trust Company in 1985, Discover has grown to be one of the largest financial services firms in the country. It provides its customers access to cash at over 750,000 ATMs worldwide through its Discover and PULSE ATM networks, including over 415,000 ATMs across the United States. The firm receives awards yearly for different aspects of its business from customer loyalty to workplace environment.

Discover lowered rate on savings to 4.30% was 4.35%. This is a bad sign. I thought higher rates would hold longer based on Fed statement.

Good Place For IRA CD's

Posted by: |

I called Customer service and opened an IRA CD funded by my Discover Savings Account in one phone call.
Then I logged into my account and signed all the documents same time. IRA CD was funded within 1 hour of the first and only call. Love Discover Bank. Concerned about the talk of buyout by Citi Bank.

Great Bank

Posted by: |

I've been a Discover customer for 5 years with credit cards and banking accounts, and I've always had a great experience. Their customer service is US based and has always been helpful with resolving any questions or concerns.

Nasty Change To Bill Pay

Posted by: |

Discover Bank just made a nasty change to their Bill Pay. A new rule prohibits scheduling a payment for more than the current balance in my checking account. I have always entered bill payments as soon as I get a bill, scheduling them for the due date, and transferred money out of savings a day or 2 before to cover them. Now I have to either transfer the funds into checking when I get the bills (losing interest), or wait until a couple of days before the due date and hope that I remember to schedule the payment and that nothing prevents me from accessing my account. I've been happy with Discover for 3 years, but this bone-headed change cramps my style & really irritates me.

Open IRS CD’S Somewhere/Anywhere Else

Opened IRA CD account on-line, but was not allowed to fund it with Discover Bank Savings Account funds. Tried for a week to fund it from other sources with no success. Email inquiry response was wrong and a bunch of BS and the same with the secure message inquiry. After a week, called customer service, after 20 minutes of run around, found out all the forms I filled out on line were for naught. Discover is sending a “Welcome Packet” of 20+ pages to be filled out and signed and returned with directions on how to fund. (This would have been nice to know a week ago.) Once received by DB, “someone” is supposed to call me to get further funding instructions. Maybe some of this info I got is true, the last info I got from customer service wasn’t. I’m checking the mail. Not sure about someone calling and saying they are from Discover Bank and wanting my banking information. Good interest rate, but not worth the pain and suffering. I will purchase future IRA CD’s elsewhere.
