Is the Discover it card a Visa or Mastercard

Answered By: Harry King Date: created: Jul 15 2021

Discover is neither a Visa nor a Mastercard. It’s more like an American Express card, but they’re not exactly the same, either. Discover is similar to Visa, Mastercard and American Express in the sense that all four are card networks.

Which is better a Visa or Mastercard

Answered By: Steven Wilson Date: created: Oct 27 2021

As far as most consumers are concerned, there is no real difference between MasterCard and Visa. The two are both widely accepted in over two hundred countries and it is very rare to find a location that will accept one but not the other. However, neither Visa nor MasterCard actually issue any credit cards themselves.

What is the difference of Visa and Mastercard

Answered By: Kevin Sanders Date: created: Dec 30 2021

The only real difference that stands between Visa and Mastercard is that your card works on the payment network that the company operates. A Visa card won’t work on Mastercard’s network, and vice versa. Not all Mastercard cards are the same, and not all Visa cards are the same.

Why American Express is bad

Answered By: Gregory Ward Date: created: Apr 05 2021

All credit card issuers charge a fee, but not all issuers charge the same fee. Because of this set up, merchants can choose which credit cards they want to accept. The different fees often make or break a deal for a merchant. This is why many merchants, especially small businesses, don’t accept American Express.

Why is the Discover card not accepted

Answered By: Jordan Hayes Date: created: Sep 21 2021

The Discover card is also like American Express in that they both charge a bit more to store owners to accept their cards. Transaction fees are often the reason some small retailers require a minimum amount to be spent for a customer to use a charge card, so that the fees don’t exceed the small profit made in the sale.

Why is AMEX better

Answered By: David Nelson Date: created: Dec 06 2020

In general, Amex cards offer better rewards, because Amex charges a higher discount rate and passes some of that extra value back to its cardmembers. In particular, the Membership Rewards program is considerably better than any comparable program offered by other issuers.

The short answer: you should have at least two – ideally each from a different network (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, etc.) and each offering you a different kind of rewards (cash back, miles, rewards points, etc.). How many credit cards is too many?

Is a Discover card worth having

Answered By: Lucas James Date: created: Dec 11 2020

The Discover it® Cash Back features a high cash-back rate in rotating quarterly categories — but you don’t get those rewards automatically, activation is required and spending caps apply. Even so, for people who prefer cash back and don’t mind putting in a little work, this $0-annual-fee card is well worth it.

Why do people use American Express

Answered By: Joshua Johnson Date: created: Sep 29 2021

Most people I know who have an American Express have a Visa or Master Card as a backup. The reason to use them is, if accepted, they frequently offer better rewards such as 2 to 3% on restaurants, supermarkets, and gas. A lot of other cards have caught up, but you get a card that works best for your life style.
