Discover Bank 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.

Great Place for an Emergency Fund

My family has had our emergency fund at Discover Bank for over five years without a complaint. It is nice to have an emergency savings account in an online bank as it will be there when we need it, but it also is just a little more inconvenient to draw from it for everyday expenses or needs. The account offers competitive rates of return, far outperforming my brick and mortar banks, and allows easy transactions to and from the account though these usually take 1-3 business days to transfer. There online interface is user friendly without too many bells and whistles to confuse the customer. We have also held CDs in the past with Discover Bank without a major issue or incident and are considering utilizing the service again in the near future.

Happy with Discover Savings.

I opened a savings account with Discover a little over a year ago. I was searching for an account that had a comparatively high interest rate to other savings account options. We have an account with Capital One that was initially opened when it was ING. At the time we opened the ING account, their rates were among the highest around for savings accounts but Capital One's rates are not very competitive. Discover's rates were among the highest i could find and since we already had a relationship with the bank with our credit card, I thought this would be a good choice. It was incredibly easy to set up the account and to transfer and withdraw money. Customer service is always pleasant and helpful, but mainly, I'm in it for the interest rates.

Good bank but there may be better options.

I have been using this bank for the past year and so far am satisfied with their online service and user friendliness of the website, but overall I am not happy. I had an unauthorized purchase that I called in to open a chargeback fraud claim on and it took many more steps and explaining than past experiences with brick and mortar banks. The representative was accusatory and it offended me that they would show the level of incompetence with such a well-known company. I told them repeatedly it's not hard to look at the charge description to see it was accessed by someone in China which then obviously proves it's not me, and this is the job for their investigative team and not the person opening the claim. Based solely on this experience I am looking to change banks.

They Fail To Honor Their Promotional Offers

Posted by: Bigrob8 | Jun 5, 2018

Discover Bank is clearly not ready for prime time. I opened an online savings account with a promotion offer, but they refused to honor the promotion even though the delays in transaction posting were their fault which they acknowledged. They may very well count on such "failures" to ensure they don't actually have to honor their promotional offers.

Totally disgusted by this corrupt organization and would never consider doing business with them again.
