Best Discover card design? Thoughts?

Postby Beyond Life » Mon Aug 30, 2010 2:06 am

(Updated 2013) I have the Discover More card with the sealife design and was thinking about changing it. What are the ones they are offering now that are good? What would you say the best Discover card design is in your personal opinion?

FYI you can see all of their 2013 designs here.

The best Discover card design would be the standard issue. It appears more professional than the designer versions.

I agree with fffresh. I like the standard design, especially the orange edge. However, I don't carry the card as I get better rewards elsewhere and when I did carry it I found too many places did not accept Discover -- still.
American Express: Blue Cash Preferred (groceries, 6%; gas, department store, 3%); Gold Delta SkyMiles (Delta Air Lines, 2 miles/dollar, free checked bag).
US Bank: Cash+ (utilities, phone, internet, restaurant, 5%; drugstores, 2%).
FIA Card Services: Fidelity Amex (everything, 2%); Fidelity Visa (everything, 1.5%).
Chase: Freedom (rotating, 5%); Amazon (Amazon.com, 3%); PriorityClub (IHG hotels, 5 points/dollar); Sapphire (not in use).

*All cards are registered with PriorityClub IDine program for 8 points/dollar at participating restaurants.

Black Glow

I like the black glow design - I get to have a "black card" without having a ridiculously expensive centurion or something.

Do you have the black glow design? I know Discover only recently started offering it. I haven't seen one yet but it also looks to be a clean design as is the standard version.

The NYC Skyline design is pretty nice IMO. Not too flashy but still nice looking. The see-through sky was cool too.

I haven't seen the NYC skyline Discover card design, is it still being offered? I had an underwater coral reef with a shark that also has a blue see-through background which is pretty unique.

Yes I have the black glow. I like it - it looks clean and "exclusive". I just use it in the 5% categories each month and put the rest on my USAA Workd Mastercard.

I have 2 cards but 1 account I have the Black. I also have the original Black with reddish color letters (I know back in the mid 80's the color was orange but they changed the color). If I was getting another card today, I would get either the red white and blue More card or the Motiva.

The link below is continuously updated with CreditCardForum's sponsored offer for the Discover it; at the bottom of the application you will find the current Discover card designs available. Some of the designs do change periodically so if you see something unique that you like this year, select it now rather than waiting. For example, the above mentioned underwater landscape featuring a shark is no longer available to new cardmembers.

Apply for the Discover it card and select your design

Good Luck!
