Discover it Card Review and Unboxing [ Best Cash Back Credit Card ]

– Three months ago I applied for the Discover it card, and got approved. In today’s video I’m going to do an unboxing of the Discover it card and a full review, pros and cons. If this sounds interesting
to you, stick around. (melodious music) The subject of today’s video
is The Discover it card. First, we’ll do the full unboxing of the Discover it card, showing exactly what it looks like once you get approved, how everything comes in through the mail. After that, I’ll do a video review about my thoughts about
the Discover it card. What’s more, I have a full
review of this credit card offer. I have 13 pros of the Discover
it card and four cons. Not only does this review article have the 13 benefits and the four drawbacks of having the Discover it card, the video you’re watching
now is also embedded. So if you’d like to see the full review of the Discover it card,
unboxing video review, and written review, just
click right over here. I never had a Discover credit card, so I thought I would apply and
see if I could get approved. I had good credit, but
not very good credit, and I was happy to see that
they approved my application. So after waiting about a
week, this came in the mail. It’s more like a small package,
rather than an envelope. For me, it’s a lot of fun to open something that I receive in the mail. The Discover credit card
company puts more effort in packaging then with
other credit card companies. You feel like you receive
something really special. Here they just keep it simple, they say, “Thank you for choosing Discover.” Just like most credit
cards, Discover will send you the card member agreement. This is how my Discover
it card looks up close. I wasn’t exactly sure if the color would be gold or rose gold. As it turns out, it is
a light, shimmery gold. I like the way it looks. This is what the Discover it
card looks like from the back. It really has a very interesting design. The majority of all Discover credit cards start with the number 6011. The funny thing is that two days after applying for the Discover it card online, this came in the mail for me. What I remember from applying online, there were more color options. There’s only one shade of blue here, but I think there were about three online. So, if you apply online, there are more options for choosing a color online. What I really like about
the Discover it card, my favorite perk, is that
for new card holders, all your cash rewards get doubled at the end of your 12th month. So, if I were to make
purchases throughout the year, and I earn $300 cash back,
I will get that cash back, and I’ll have access to that after the billing cycle is complete. But then, at the very end of my year, first year, my anniversary
year, I will get a double bonus. If I earn $300, at the end of the year they give me another $300. One thing you can do to
get more cash back rewards is to buy gift cards, and
I would only buy gift cards for things that you need anyways. So a good example of this
would be, an Amazon gift card, or gift cards to your
favorite restaurants. So quarter one, and quarter two, quarter one was gas
stations and quarter two was grocery stores. If that store or gas
station sells gift cards, you can purchase them on
your Discover it card, and then you will earn a 10% bonus. Just so you know, this
doesn’t always work. I haven’t tried it at the supermarket yet, but I was buying gift
cards at gas stations. So what happened was,
the first gas station I went to, the woman
pretty much shut me down. She said, “We have gift cards,
but we accept cash only.” So I was very lucky at
the second gas station, the clerk had no problem
ringing up my gift card. I will repeat the process when
the second quarter starts, which is very shortly from now, and I will try to buy gift
cards at the grocery store. I did not think of this
myself, I actually got that tip from Ask Sebby, he has
done this and he explained how to do it, and everything
he said was correct. Not every place will do it for you, but there are a lot that will. One of the things I
really like about Discover is their customer service,
it is outstanding. Everything you see in
their commercials is true. It’s like you’re talking to a friend and they’re very knowledgeable. I had a couple of issues
that I needed to call on, and they handled them, no problem. Everything I needed they took care of, and that’s a really nice perk. It’s one of the reasons I like the Discover it card
over other credit cards. I basically prefer cash
back credit cards to all other reward cards
and the reason for that is there’s a lot of flexibility
with cash back reward cards. My favorite cash back
credit cards are, of course, The Discover it card, then there are two that I have that I really like. First, it’s Capital One, I
love the Capital One company, it’s just about as good
with customer service as, at least in my experience,
as Discover it has, and I like Quicksilver’s
1.5% cash back on everything, and then the other card
that I really like is the Citi Double Cash because you even earn a little bit more with
the Citi Double Cash. 1% on your purchases, and then 1% they give you back when you pay your bill. Many people also have
the Chase Freedom card, which is very similar
to the Discover it card, with 5% cash back category bonuses, and the Chase Freedom Unlimited card, which is 1.5% cash back just like the Capitol One
Quicksilver credit card. I highly recommend the Discover it card, even though I’ve been a
member only for three months, I’ve already seen the extreme amount of value being a cardholder is. They give some of the best rewards of any cash back credit card, and the redemption of rewards is so easy. So, I would recommend
taking a closer look at the Discover it card, and compare
them to other cash back credit cards to see if this
is the card right for you.
