Great Rates

Discover Bank is a premium online banking option. They have outstanding competitive rates for all of their banking products, including CDs IRSs, savings, checking, and money market accounts. The website provides online tools to check their rates against the most popular online banking alternatives. I compared CD rates from Discover Bank against Wells Fargo, Bank of America, and Chase. Additionally, there is an option to compare rates from US Bank, Citibank, and Capital One. Discover offered far better rates than each of the alternative online banking options. I was also able to enter an initial deposit amount, view interest rates, and see the amount of earned interest for terms from 10 years to 3 months. The website is clean and easy to navigate. Discover customer service is outstanding. I have reached out to them on several occasions with questions about their products and was very impressed. No long wait times and minimal automated interactions. The customer service reps were knowledgeable and friendly. I highly recommend Discover Bank for online banking.

Great online bank!

I have had a checking account and cd account from Discover Bank online. I had no issues opening either bank and the process was fairly painless. When I had my checking account, I had it set up so I could transfer money to an external bank as well as an auto pay come out. I received rewards for writing checks. When I went to close the account, they did not try and persuade me to stay, simply said we are sorry to see you go and will mail you a check with your balance. I have had a cd for a few years now. I can look online and see how much money is in it. Also they send out quarterly statements so I know when I check the mail. I got a very good rate from Discover CD.

Happy with the decision

I have an emergency savings (money market) account for emergencies, looking for the best interest rate, I turned to online banks. First I was with Synchrony Bank for several years, and they were fine, but then I saw that Discover Bank was among several that offered much higher interest rates - 1.50% to be exact. The most difficult part of the experience is the initial setting up of the account and transfer of money into that new account, but after that, everything's fine. I'm very happy with the website, it's easy to navigate and user-friendly. I was even able to combine online my Discover card credit account with this new savings account, so I can see everything together at once. All in all I'm very happy with Discover Bank!

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.
