Discover only bought its network so that it can expand Discover international acceptance. Discover does not have issuing rights of Diners Club.

Diner's club is more for corporations than personal use these days.

 

The truth is out there...
FICO scores: 764 (EQ) 732 (EX) 757 (TU) 9/14 | Goal score: 750+ (all 3)

However, that may be about to change.  Judging by this article, they may have a rebranding in the works that would be accompanied by a push back into personal cards.
