Discover will be releasing a black design soon, that's the one I am really waiting for!13126846_1724819904468909_705563200_n.jpg


HIlraious. It looks similar to my DIscover Classic card when I first opened it in 1999, minus the embossing, of course. Black, Gold...what is old is new again it seems. I like the new gold colour but I really love my retro Dawn Of Discover More card.

I love the look and feel of the new gold Discover It card. I got a lot of compliments when I used it this week

Re: New Discover gold design UPDATED WITH PICS

Will freezing a card to order a new design cause any problems with my account? I have also reached the maximum number of designs allowed I would love to get the pride one which has now only became an option since I switched over to regular it.

I hate calling in to any customer service reps no matter how nice they are, and that is what my account says to do if I want a new card color.

I got a new blue one 1-2 weeks ago even though I am over the limit by asking over chat but it seemed like it was a big process for the online rep because it took around 10-15 minutes with long pauses while they went to find info on requesting card designs.

Anyway I'd love to have a Black disco and the pride one to go in my collection.

That's a good question... I'll speculate that since deactivating a card (what I think you're referring to) is just temporary it probably wouldn't do the trick.  Keep in mind that with Discover if you deactivate a card some charges (like recurring charges) will still be approved, so it's not completely 'dead'.  

 

What they call a 'freeze' is when you stop most activity for the overall account for all cards, which doesn't seem like what you want.

All that said, unless there's a security concern nearly anything a Discover phone rep can do a chat rep can also handle.  I actually used a chat rep to request a APR reduction, and they were fantastic.  I agree that a chat isn't as good as 'self-service' online, but it's still not quite liking having to call, which for the record with Discover isn't bad, either.  Smiley Wink

Re: New Discover gold design UPDATED WITH PICS

Thanks Uncle B I had read earlier in the post that freezing a card worked for others.

 

I will chat up a rep; later on, to see if they scold me and say Dep you just requested a new card color 2 weeks ago what is wrong with you requesting another one?

 

CO-Native, do they really offer the old school looking card still? Or is it just something you have since you have been a member for so long? I love the look of the Dawn of Discover card!

Wow that card looks great! I think Discover's picture of this card looks awful.  They obviously didn't do it justice, because it looks awesome based on these pictures!

Yes, you can freeze an individual card.  I was able to do this online and on my app, too.  It appears that you can only have 4 active cards (and Apple Pay counts as a card).   If you're already at 4, you can (1) freeze an existing card and then (2) order another design.

Ahh... so it will work!  

 

This is great to know.  I'm still stuck on my original boring blue, but at least there are options for those who like to have a variety.  Smiley Very Happy

Re: New Gold Discover IT!

The chip looks silver in your picture. But the discover's image made it look like the chip was gold too. 

Still it looks amazing. 

 

Almost all cards with good rewards look horrible. And great looking cards have lousy rewards. Discover is an exception.
