Key points about: matching miles earned with the Discover it® Miles credit card

  1. With Discover Match we’ll automatically match all the Miles you’ve earned at the end of your first year. There is no limit to how much we’ll match.1

  2. Miles that are earned during your first year are eligible for matching.

Discover Match® will automatically match all the Miles you’ve earned at the end of your first year. There is no limit to how much we’ll match.1

How does Discover Match® work?

Once your new credit card account is approved, you’re automatically enrolled in Discover Match. And you get an unlimited Mile-for-Mile match of all the Miles you earn at the end of your first year, automatically. There is no limit to how much we’ll match.1

Miles aren’t the only type of reward you can earn with a Discover credit card. Every Discover card earns rewards on purchases. Choose the card that earns the type of rewards that are most valuable for you.

Discover Match starts the day your new account is approved and goes through your first 365 days or 12 consecutive billing cycles, whichever is longer.

All Miles earned while your Discover it® Miles credit card is enrolled in Discover Match for the first year are matched. Miles rewards are earned when they’re processed, which may be after the transaction date.

Rewards that are processed after your Discover Match ends are not eligible for matching. For example, if you make transactions towards the end of your Discover Match period, and the Miles rewards for those transactions are processed after Discover Match ends, they will not be matched. This also applies to Miles rewards earned from promotional offers you may receive from Discover outside of your standard rewards program. Additionally, statement credits and rewards transfers from Discover checking are not eligible for matching.

There’s no minimum spending or limit to how much we’ll match! You could turn 35,000 Miles to 70,000 Miles.

You can redeem Miles for cash in any amount, any time2 as soon as they are available in your Miles account. This will not impact your Match award. So, any Miles that you redeem prior to Discover Match ending will still be matched.

Within two billing periods of your Discover Match ending, the final amount is added to your Miles account.

If your account is closed when we calculate your Discover Match award, your rewards will not be matched.

While you’re in Discover Match, you can track how much you’ve earned by visiting the Miles Summary page.

Discover Match is only available for new cardmembers.
