Mobile is the latest of a string of products and services Discover Card has introduced to help cardmembers stay in control of their finances. The company recently launched the Spend Analyzer, an online personal finance tool that allows cardmembers to see exactly how and where they are spending their money through graphical charts that organize their purchases into broad categories. Also, the newly-launched Paydown Planner gives cardmembers a customized look at how long it should take to pay down their balances over a specific timeframe, while the Purchase Planner helps them understand how a large purchase could affect their monthly payment. Mobile can be accessed by visiting from any mobile device that supports web browsing functionality. To log in, Discover Cardmembers simply use their existing User ID and password.
