    This card looks geared to revolvers and late payers ("Paying late won't increase your APR", "No late fee for your first late payment", "Pay your bill 'til midnight [ET] the day it's due by phone or online")

    I am really disappointed by how many people are going gaga for the IT card. It offers NOTHING of substance ("oooohhhh it is so pretty and the account number is on the back of the card!"). So they basically copied Chase Shapphire but without the great rewards and global acceptance.

    This kind of marketing is exactly why people go gaga over that lame Barclay's Bank Delaware Black Visa and why people pay $10K more to have a Lexus over a similar Toyota with leather, a V6 and a sunroof. Americans.....smh.

    Don't get me wrong, I like Discover, but of they are going to market a *new* card it should offer something of substance, like 1% cash from the start instead of tiered rewards and maybe a true Chip + PIN for use globally on the Diner's Club network....

    Getting off my soap box.

    This card seems like cross between freedom and is simplicity. Or a more card with simplicity benefits.

    I have the Discover More and still have yet to figure out why I would switch. Card design, while neat, isn't a valid reason to switch.

    Well, a year from now when Discover celebrates the one-year anniversary of the IT card by sending $1,000 checks to the first cardholders as a thank you for having faith in the little IT card, I suspect some of you will feel differently.
