Program Details

Discover Miles Rewards is the bank rewards program of Discover. It's a single card rewards program that operates like a cash back rewards program. Discover IT credit cards are primarily known for the excellent first year earnings you can acquire from their Discover Match benefit. Discover matches your first year earnings on all of their reward and cash back credit cards. This essential doubles the value of the cards the first year making them hard to beat with return ranging from 2% to 10% per $1 spent depending on the card. Discover also has Discover Deals which allows you to save money or earn bonus points on purchases made with select retailers similar to AMEX Offers and Chase Offers.

Rewards Calculators

Discover Miles are earned using the Discover IT Miles card. There are no other ways to earn Discover Miles outside of Discover Bank.

Discover Miles can be redeemed for travel, cash deposits made to your bank, and purchases made at Amazon.com. All redemptions earn you the same value so there's no figuring out the "best" way to redeem your miles.

Credit Card Rewards Calculators

The Discover Miles Reward program offers one credit card which is the Discover IT Miles card. It earns at a flat rate of 1.5 miles per $1 spent on all purchases making it equal to a 1.5% cash back card. The main draw to this card is the uncapped rewards that Discover will match during the first year giving you the equivalent of 3 miles per $1 on all purchases.

Compare credit cards side by side based on spend, benefits and fees.

The calculator will calculate how many Discover Miles you can earn and the cash value of the Discover IT card based on your monthly/yearly spend, how much the card benefits are worth to you, and the fees of the card. You can compare the results side by side any credit card featured on the site.

These calculators are already set up so you can immediately start calculating total rewards as well as the cash value of the compared cards based on your monthly/yearly spend, how much the card benefits are worth to you, and the annual fees.
