The Discover Card, the U.S.’s third-largest credit card brand, was created by Sears in 1985 and went national the following year. Initially affiliated with Dean Witter, then Morgan Stanley, it became an independent company, under the name Discover Financial Services (DFS), in 2007.
The company never has stressed an interest in serving the small business community, but does offer a business credit card. Instead, its focus always has been on consumers, however they do offer a few products that are worth investigating. Their CD and savings financial products are enjoyed by consumers, along with their student loan products.
“I have always trusted discover to help me save and plan for my financial future” – Jane R.
