Would this card also be accepted anywhere "JCB" (Japan Credit Bureau) is accepted in Japan, similar to some other Discover products?

Oh and China. We ARE the most accepted American credit card :) plus no international trans fee.. If I traveled, I would love an escape card. Even miles by discover as well. Bottom line... Discover is a great for China/ Japan. Yeah Bro! :)

It would be accepted everywhere Discover is accepted. JCB is a different card. In New York city I've seen someone use a JCB card and the Visa logo was on the card. The escape card would only be accepted in places that accept Discover.

It is a straight 2%, however the first $3000 spent earns $60 in rebates, which equals the annual fee.

If there was no fee I'd think about switching to it from my open road card (which only gets used for restaurants, cable and phone expenses these days)

well I'm not sure how that works or if they have their own network in japan because discover cards are accepted in japan under JCB network. ill have to research this.

escape is a good card. the AF is the only reason i don't have one. i do like my more card but escape is a nice program as well. i personally dont like AF's. i didn't wanna pay mine on the zync but oh well. that one i don't mind :)

I'm iffy on the annual fee too. My Miles card doesn't have one and I get good bang for my buck.
