Credit card designs and how to get a new design

You can personalize the design of your Discover credit card. Simply log into the Account Center and select a new design for yourself or anyone on your account. There’s no application to fill out or financial information to provide. Best of all, changing your card design is free.

What are the numbers on the back of my Discover Card?

The design on the back of your Discover Card consists of an area where you sign your name. You will also see three sets of numbers (see image below). These numbers are part of the technology that we employ to activate the card.

The cardmember ID number is used to verify transactions made when the card is not present, such as internet or phone purchases. It is also required when registering for the Account Center.

What to do with your current card after requesting a new card design

Since your account number will not change, your current card will remain active until the expiration date. Continue using it until the expiration date shown on the card or call us at 1-800-DISCOVER (1-800-347-2683) to deactivate the card. You do not need to return your current card to us. If you choose not to use your old card, please destroy it.

I changed my reward program, so why is my old credit card design still appearing on my account?

If you recently changed reward programs, the card designs associated with the old rewards program will continue to be active until the expiration date shown on the card. You can continue to use that card for purchases until it expires, and it will earn rewards towards the new rewards program.
