New Discover It Miles Card Combines Flexible Travel And Unlimited Miles With The Features Of Discover It Card

February 19, 2015

RIVERWOODS, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 19, 2015-- As Americans start putting their travel plans in motion for 2015, Discover announces the launch of the new Discover it Miles® Card, a no-annual-fee1 credit card that helps travelers get where they want with exceptional value and service.

Building off of the Discover it® Card’s heritage of innovative rewards and award winning customer service, some of the major features of the Discover it Miles Card include:

  • Fly any airline any time. Just buy a ticket and use Miles to credit your statement.
  • 1.5x miles for every dollar spent on purchases
  • An annual credit up to $30 for in-flight Wi-Fi charges
  • Miles never expire2
  • No foreign transaction fees1
  • Overnight shipping of a replacement card to any U.S. street address upon request
  • A $0 fraud liability guarantee where you are never responsible for unauthorized purchases on your Discover card

“There are a lot of travel cards out there, but the collective benefits Discover offers stand out from the competition,” said Julie Loeger, senior vice president of brand and acquisition. “Our rewards are easy to understand and simple to earn. If someone loves traveling, and especially wants the freedom to choose any means of travel at any time, and the ability to rack up miles through everyday purchases, the Discover it Miles Card provides that and so much more.”

Discover it Miles cardmembers can redeem miles at any amount for cash, or as a statement credit toward their travel purchases, including commercial airline tickets, hotel rooms, car rentals, commuter transportation and taxicabs.

As an introductory offer, Discover it Miles cardmembers will now receive double the amount of miles they’ve earned at the end of their first year – with no spending cap. That gives travelers using the Discover it Miles Card the opportunity to determine for themselves the amount of bonus miles they receive in that first year.

As a cousin to the Discover it Card, it Miles cardmembers will receive the same great benefits, such as:

  • No annual fee
  • Mobile account management
  • 100% U.S.-based customer service representatives available any time
  • Free FICO® Credit Scores online and on monthly statements3
  • Ability to pay bills online or by phone up to midnight (Eastern time) on due dates
