Discover sent me a third card

Postby 432521 » Tue Jun 05, 2012 1:15 pm

so they sent me a third card that i will not be using because the second and third ones are the exact same design and its the one i want. All i have to do is cut the third card up and I should be good to go right? would i have to call them?

You don't need to alert then that you won't be using the card. If you haven't activated it then there's nothing to worry about. Either cut it up our put it away in a safe place and keep it as a spare in case your current card gets damaged our the mag strip wears out.

Make sure the card # is the same...if it is a different card #, Discover sent it because they may suspect fraud on your account, or they are just trying to prevent it...They sent me the same card design with a different card # and when I called to ask why they did it, that was their response.

Cut and make sure they remove from their system, even if the number is the same on the card each card has 3 digits on the back usually starting with 001, then 002 and so on to identify each card so make sure you call them , tell them the number in the back so they remove that
