I think the vast majority of GE products are meant to be PIF cards, no one in their right mind would want to carry a balance Smiley Very Happy

Who doesn't accept Discover nowadays? I remember when I was younger it seemed like some old person type card, not quite an Amex, but definitely not a Visa or MC... Now being older and having it be my number one prime card with excellent limit for my current status in life I don't have any issues...

I always stick my head out like REALLY? But it's all good.. Better for my health.

I actually have two balances with GE. Hehee. But they are both NO INTEREST for 12 and 18 months furniture purchases. I have until mid 2013 and early 2014 to pay before the interest kicks in. I hate interest. Never paid it and don't intend to start now! LOL!

I went to Pacific Theatre and wanted to charge my Discover and the guy was like "I'm sorry we don't accept Discover!" I was like "NOOO but what about my cashback bonuses? The quarter is almost over!! Pleassee??" LMAO I've run into at least 5 places so far that are like NOOPE to discover. So I end up charging my stupid Cap1 Visa...

A lot of places don't, and if you travel internationally many places don't accept Amex either. Where I'm at, about 80% of the merchants don't accept Amex and nobody accepts Discover.

The only exception that comes to mind is japan. Also all discover cards are no ftf,  so it's too bad that they have a limited international presence
