Re: Discover IT conversion

I think I will fire a new application for IT other than PC, since too much conflicting informantion now and it is best to keep current More card.

Re: Discover IT conversion

Why is everyone so afraid to let go of the More card?  I'm seriously confused.  The IT card carries every benfit of the More plus some.  So why would anyone worry about it?

+1 I see no reason to go back unlesto having the option to choose a card is that important.

Re: Discover IT conversion

I just converted mine. It appears that you get more options with the IT card. I don't see any disadvantages

Re: Discover IT conversion

I'm not too worried because currently the IT is the best card Discover offers. With the exception of maybe design choices. If and when a better Discover card comes out in one, two, five years, by that time I'm sure we could PC to it. We will always have a back door number to call and absolute worst case we can app for a second card.  Don't see them locking us down forever. They probably want to phase out the More to some degree.

That's what I was thinking too. The IT is better than the more and most likely the perks were bumped up to try to compete with some of the other primes while phasing out the More.

Re: Discover IT conversion

I was approved for More last week, and PC to the IT yesterday before even recieving my More card. I will officially be switched to the IT after this bill cycle is over.

 

Honestly I switched to the IT based soley on the IT card design.

IT (11500 CL), Freedom (5000 CL), Zync (500 CL), PFCU (500 CL)

I don't want to be stuck with one card design. With the More I can order as many cards and designs as I want. Plus my favorite design is the Dawn of Discover. Here it is:
