ATM transactions, the purchase of money orders or other cash equivalents, cash over portions of point-of-sale transactions, Peer-to-Peer (P2P) payments (such as Apple Pay Cash), and loan payments or account funding made with your debit card are not eligible for cash back rewards.  In addition, purchases made using third-party payment accounts (services such as Venmo® and PayPal®, who also provide P2P payments) may not be eligible for cash back rewards.  Apple, the Apple logo and Apple Pay are trademarks of Apple Inc., registered in the US and other countries.

Say goodbye to fees.

No. Fees. Period. That means you won't be charged an account fee on our Cashback Debit account.

Outgoing wire transfers are subject to a service charge. You may be charged a fee by a non-Discover ATM if it is not part of the 60,000+ ATMs in our no-fee network.

The difference is surprising.

Comparison conducted by an independent research from and based on data compiled in July 2020 from company websites, customer service agents, and consumer checking offers.  In some cases, competitors assess and/or waive fees if certain criteria are met.  The non-Discover Bank service marks for Bank of America, Capital One 360, Chase, Chime, Citibank, Wells Fargo, Fifth Third, PNC, and U.S. Bank are owned by each respective entity.  Although the information by independent research firm has been obtained from the various institutions, the accuracy cannot be guaranteed.
