Re: impulse.

While on vacation I recently lost my wallet with my Disc More Dog Bones card in it.  I called to report it lost/stolen and was a bit freaked because I was left with ZERO cards, except my Discover2Go keychain card.  The CSR was able to deactivate JUST the Dog Bones design and let the 2Go and the Blue Circles (sockdrawered) stay active.  This was a relief because I  at least had a CC with me -- even if some cashiers weren't sure how to use it.  LOL
 
Just another reason why I love Discover.  Smiley Wink

As I understand it, you can have several cards simultaneously, all with the same account number.




This is very true. My GF has 2 Discover cards with separate designs. Both are functional.

Re: impulse.

Huh, I was picturing a typical shaped keychain card with paywave or something similar.  I haven't seen those on Discover's site, though I have gotten emails about it.

Thanks Peas! It does raise a couple of concerns though. Like if you lose your keys, someone may gain access to your CC, likewise if you were to get carjacked.

Is it simply for the convenience of not having to dig through your wallet every time? Does it do blink transactions?

Convenience.  I often forget I have it, tho.  It's much easier for me to just drag out the wallet.  (Well, it was when I had one, lol.  I'm living out of a little pouch at the moment.)

Lost your wallet in Vegas? I understand, paying back the cash advances can get old quick Smiley Wink

J/K of course.

LOL, different vacation - just a quickie trip to visit a former co-worker.  Am I a jet-setter or what?
 
I only took ONE cash advance, sheesh!  And that was directly from my money market acct!  Smiley Wink
