Discover Expands Free Credit Score Access to the General Public

Free Discover FICO ScoreNot so long ago, it wasn’t possible to get a copy of your credit score without paying for it. Fortunately, due to the advocacy of consumer watchdogs and agencies such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, it’s become easier than ever to access your score. Now, a number of banks offer this information for free to their customers.

Up to this point, however, nearly all credit card issuers required an existing relationship in order to get a free score. Discover is looking to change that, once again taking a leadership role in expanding credit score access. In 2013, it was the first major credit card issuer to provide free credit scores (from TransUnion) to their customers on their monthly statements. On Friday, it is announcing it will become the first credit card issuer to provide free credit scores from Experian to the general public.

Discover Double Cash Back Enrollment No Longer Available to Existing Cardmembers

Discover it CardHave a Discover it card but haven’t gotten around to signing up for the Double Cash Back promotion? Unfortunately, it appears that Discover has silently ended the enrollment period for existing cardmembers. As of today, the promotion, which doubles all of the cash back that you earn with the card for one year–including cash back earned on 5% category spend and Discover Deals–is now available to new cardholders only.

It’s a shame for those who missed out, especially for those who were looking to double dip on Discover it’s 5% categories next quarter, which include home improvement stores, department stores and

Discover it Card: Double Cash Back for a Year For New and Existing Cardmembers

Discover it® CardBeginning June 1, 2015, Discover is rolling out a new promotion for Discover it cardmembers. Reports from multiple customer service reps have been conflicting, but most are saying that cardmembers will be able to earn double cash back for 12 billing cycles once they have enrolled, with enrollment being open in June and July. The double cash back will certainly apply to all of your 1% purchases, but there is debate over whether 5% category purchases will also be doubled. At the minimum, though, this would turn your Discover it card into a 2% cash back card temporarily. The double cash back also should supposedly apply to Discover Deals cash back.

Now, it appears that Discover has decided that it is the right time to introduce a new card to the competitive travel market. The new Discover it Miles card earns an unlimited 1.5 miles on all purchases, which in itself is nothing special. What makes the card potentially attractive is that for the first year, all of your earned miles will be doubled, meaning that you’ll earn 3 miles per dollar on all your purchases.
