Awesome card design...

I was on the Discover website looking at the card designs they offer and I decided to add the Ducks Unlimited Mallard design to my wallet and I must say...

The second I tore open the envelope I was instantly impressed by the cards visual appeal. It has an awesome sparkle, the website doesn't do this card justice.

I'm not sure how but the paper says that this card "supports Ducks Unlimited with every purchase" I don't know if it is an affinity card.

Does anybody know?

Cool looking card. I looked at 3 diff webpages - both Disc and DU, and don't see an answer to your question. It looks like a co-branded card that DU offers its members, but I don't see how it "supports" DU. Here's a page from DU: http://www.ducks.org/news-media/discover-and-ducks-unlimited-announce-new-affinity-card?poe=homebutt...

 

and here's info from Disc: 

https://www.discover.com/credit-cards/help-center/faqs/co-branded.html

 

it looks like you can "support" DU by giving them your rewards, but that's it. it is a card that you're not going to see coming and going, though! :smileyhappy:

Yeah, the card on the center is the one I'm talking about.
A Google search yielded this information...

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/05/30/idUS129217+30-May-2012+BW20120530

Based on this article one could assume it is an affinity card.
