Breaking new ground from day one

In 1986, we introduced our first credit card based on one simple, yet very important idea—that our customers deserve to feel appreciated; that we owe them the best experience possible.

So instead of having an annual fee like many cards at the time, there was no charge to carry the card and customers’ loyalty was rewarded with Cashback Bonus on purchases.

And since our introduction, we’ve continued to challenge the industry by providing benefits like 100% U.S.-based customer service, by pioneering innovations that encouraged responsible borrowing, and by improving card security with features like the Freeze it® on/off switch that can prevent new purchases on misplaced cards.

The energy of a startup and the confidence of a leader

An innovative spirit is in everything we do, and our focus remains steadfast when it comes to making it easier for our customers to achieve their financial goals.

In addition to our card and banking products, the Discover Network provides card acceptance at millions of businesses and cash access locations, we operate the ATM/debit network, PULSE; and Diners Club International has acceptance in more than 185 countries and territories.

We treat you like you’d treat you

Discover was founded on the principles of appreciation and rewards—and it carries over to our corporate culture. Every voice counts and every idea is heard, because the more diversity in backgrounds and thinking, the better. Successes, large and small, are celebrated and rewarded.

The Discover College Commitment provides a full-ride bachelor’s degree for all qualified employees. Books, tuition, required fees… everything is included. And every U.S.-based, full-time and flex part-time employee is eligible to apply. We’re proud to offer this level of comprehensive educational assistance, because it truly reflects our commitment to employee advancement and our corporate mission, “To help people spend smarter, manage debt better and save more so they achieve a brighter financial future.”

The Discover College Commitment is for our employees starting day one, and so is the rest of our benefits package. This includes medical, dental and vision coverage, a 401(k) with company matching, generous paid time off and programs designed to help you achieve better health, wealth and balance. Plus, there’s plenty of room for career mobility and growth—and it’s encouraged with regular career discussions.
