Creditnet's Full Review

The Discover it card combines a lucrative cash back program with member perks not usually associated with cash back cards - think late fee forgiveness and no foreign transaction fees - for what is absolutely one of the best credit cards available today.
Cardholders earn 5 percent cash back on up to $1,500 in purchases made in rotating categories that change each quarter with free and easy sign-up, and a full 1 percent on all other purchases* with no expiration dates or limits.
Last but certainly not least is the 14-month intro period in which you pay ZERO in interest on new purchases and balance transfers. 
Nothing bad to say about this card - the Discover it card is an excellent option for consumers interested in earning some serious cash back...

Can't come up with any...

I just got off the phone with a customer service representative.  She was knowledgeable, friendly and got my questions answered immediately.  The weirdest thing, though, was that she was in Arizona, and I could actually understand what she was saying because the connection was so clear! It was a nice change to be speaking to somebody who wasn't just reading from a script on a customer service line for once.    But the customer service isn't the only good thing.  They have this spend analyzer that has helped me cut down in some categories and they have some other, under-advertised perks like purchase price protection, extended warranty and accidental damage protection.  I use the Discover for all online or high value purchases for exactly that reason.   The one downside is that Discover still isn't accepted at as many merchants as other cards, but it's pretty rare to run into one of those.  Nonetheless, I would highly recommend this card.
