RIVERWOODS, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Discover’s credit card mobile app, as well as its website, Discover.com, ranked highest in customer satisfaction among U.S. credit card companies, according to the J.D.

Power in both the Credit Card Mobile App and Website studies is a tremendous honor and is a credit to our loyal cardmembers who continue to engage with Discover at various touchpoints.”

The J.D. Power 2019 U.S. Credit Card Mobile App Satisfaction Study collected feedback from 3,243 credit card app users, measuring the level of satisfaction among cardmembers who had their primary credit card issuer’s app installed on their smartphone and had used the app in the previous 30 days. Discover cardmembers who used the company’s app ranked it highest in four of the five major categories comprising the study including; Ease of Navigation, Availability of Key Information, Clarity of Information, and Range of Services.

Discover’s mobile app provides cardmembers:

  • Apple Touch ID and Face ID to sign in, and Apple Siri support for Apple users
  • In App Messaging, a customer service option that enables cardmembers to communicate with Discover’s live U.S.-based customer service agents without having to stop and restart numerous interactions

  • Set up and management of alerts, either through text or push notifications
  • Account management, including on-the-go bill payment with just a few taps

The J.D. Power 2019 U.S. Online Credit Card Satisfaction Study surveyed 3,400 U.S. residents who had an online account set up with their primary credit card to access from a computer or smartphone, and had used the primary credit card’s website in the previous 30 days. Discover cardmembers who used Discover.com ranked it highest in all five major categories including; Ease of Navigation, Appearance of the Website, Range of Services, Availability of Key Information and Clarity of Information.

  • A recurring billing portal
  • Online conversion to help eligible cardmembers switch seamlessly to a different Discover rewards program
