How do you like it? Do you get any reactions from people who don't know what it is? I can't app because I live in Texas. Here are the cards available in the USA:

Yes, you can use your Discover card anywhere JCB is accepted.
With Discover's partnership with JCB (Japan) and UnionPay (China), and no foreign transaction fee, Discover is a pretty good travel card if you are planning to travel to Asia.

Tell me that does not sound tempting. So if you spend only $5000 annual that's 3.2%($160) cashback and it only gets better once your in that 3% zone.

For anyone who does not know the card can be used anywhere Discover is accepted.
If JCB can be used anywhere where Discover is accepted, can Discover be used anywhere JCB is accepted?
Correction, it can only be used at US retail store where Discover is accepted.
JCB-Discover alliance only covers retail acceptance (no mail order or online shopping), and only covers US portion.

Any foreign transaction fee? (since these cards are issued in the US) I have a Discover card though, so I guess I'm good on that for using it in Japan with no fee.
I'm just looking ahead since I might be going to grad school in the LA area where there are several Marukai stores. I shop at asian grocery stores a lot too so the Marukai card sounds like a good deal!
