RIVERWOODS, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 15, 2007--Discover Financial Services (NYSE:DFS) today celebrates the anniversary of ShopDiscover, an online shopping portal which allows cardmembers to earn 5% to 20% Cashback Bonus(R) when they shop through the website at top online retailers like Blue Nile, Overstock.com and Sears.com.

Through merchant offers, cardmembers have earned more than $1 million in Cashback Bonus when shopping through the portal. In order to take advantage of these deep discounts, cardmembers simply visit ShopDiscover's website at www.discovercard.com/shop, log in using their username and password, link to a retailer's website and make their purchases using their Discover Card.

"ShopDiscover has proven to be a truly valuable website for our cardmembers by providing them with significant savings at some of the most popular online retailers," said Dana Traci, Vice President of Prepaid & Partner Marketing for Discover Financial Services. "The website is a huge success, and its tremendous growth has exceeded our expectations."

In the past year, the website received the coveted LinkShare "Best New Affiliate of the Year" award that honors the achievements and tremendous growth of the program, as well as achieved Very Important Publisher (VIP) status by leading internet marketer, DoubleClick Performics Inc.

"By teaming up with Discover Card, we've had the opportunity to provide more value to consumers when they make their purchases," said Darrell Cavens, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Blue Nile. "In today's online marketplace, participating in programs that help drive loyalty gives us a competitive edge."

Discover Card's Cashback Bonus program offers cardmembers unlimited cash rewards that never expire and the most flexible redemption options. Cardmembers also have the ability to increase - even double - their cash rewards when they redeem for gift cards or e-certificates from an exclusive network of over 80 Cashback Bonus Partners.
