As was the case in November, 2006, the Discover Platinum credit card (combined varieties) was the most popular choice for website visitors last month. Why is Discover Platinum so popular? Because Discover Platinum is still the best 0% intro APR credit card, plain and simple.
It's important to note (in case you've been wondering) that all varieties of the Discover Platinum consumer credit card have the same benefits. The only difference between one variety of the Discover Platinum consumer credit card and the next is the card art.
Since Discover Platinum is so popular, we've decided to add 2 more versions to this website, because everyone likes the idea of having plenty of choice, n'est-ce pas? So now, when it comes to the Discover Platinum card, you can choose from the following:
- Discover® Platinum American Flag Card
- Discover® Platinum Card
- Discover® Platinum Wildlife Card
- Discover® Platinum Sealife Card
- Discover® Platinum Clear Card
Discover Financial Services Is Being Sold
The Discover Platinum card is issued by Discover Financial Services (DFS), and DFS is owned by the investment bank Morgan Stanley. The word on the street (Wall Street, that is) is that Morgan Stanley wants to sell DFS. This news begs the question: if DFS is sold, will the new management change the features and benefits associated with the popular Discover Platinum card? I'm hoping the answer is no. Only time will tell.
