Your credit score is one factor we consider when making a decision about your Discover Card application. If you have excellent credit or good credit, you'll likely be interested in a card like Discover it® Cash Back or Discover it® Miles Card. If you're working on your credit score, we may still be able to offer you a Discover it® Secured Card.

Should you have to pay a fee to keep your credit card account open? Should you expect to lose your first $50, $100 or more in cash rewards to your card issuer as an annual fee? Do you want an extra charge each year that have to pay or finance? Or do you want to keep more money in your pocket by not charging any annual fee? We prefer the latter.
