Discover® Bank, a federally insured institution owned and operated by Discover Financial Services, offers online and mobile banking for a suite of deposit products. The bank has a checking account, savings account and money market account as well as a certificate of deposit (CD) and individual retirement accounts (IRAs).

The online bank promotes no monthly fees on any account and no insufficient funds or overdraft fees on checking, savings and money market accounts. In addition, customer service is available 24/7 at 800-347-7000.

A Discover Cashback Debit account earns 1% cash back on up to $3,000 in debit card purchases monthly. The account comes with access to more than 60,000 no-fee ATMs and fee-free overdraft protection. Other perks: You can get your paycheck up to two days early when you enroll in direct deposit, and you won’t pay for check reorders or expedited delivery of a replacement debit card.

The bank’s high-yield Online Savings Account earns an annual percentage yield (APY) of 4.25% as of June 7, 2024, and requires no minimum deposit. You won’t be charged for stop payments, returned items or excessive withdrawals.

A Money Market Account earns 4.00% APY for balances of less than $100,000 and 4.05% APY for balances of $100,000 or more as of June 7, 2024. The account features no minimum opening deposit and no fees for online bill pay or standard checks, returned items, excessive withdrawals and insufficient funds.

CDs come in terms from three months to 10 years, with a minimum initial opening deposit of $2,500. The 12-month CD earns a 4.70% APY as of June 7, 2024. Keep in mind that all CDs have early withdrawal penalties based on term length if you need to access your cash early.

Discover Bank also offers IRA CDs with terms from three months to 10 years and a minimum initial deposit of $2,500. Choose from traditional or Roth IRAs, or you can have both. Early withdrawal penalties apply, and the penalty depends on your CD’s term.

Discover Bank pros and cons

• Cash back on debit card purchases
• Competitive rates
• No fees on deposit products

• Steep $2,500 minimum to open CDs

Discover Is An Excellent Online Bank, GREAT Customer Service

Posted by: |

I have checking, savings, 2 IRAs, CD, and a credit card with Discover. The app works very well, customer service is some of the best I’ve dealt with at any financial institution, and the features of the checking account make it one of the best in the country. 1% cash back on debit card, free deposits of cash at Walmart, early direct deposit, free personal checks, no monthly fee (or really any fee except for wires!). The savings and CD APYs are not the most competitive out there, but still worlds better than your typical physical bank. If the merger with Capital One ends up going through, I hope they don’t make any big changes to the checking account or to the 24 hour customer service.

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.
