Discover it® Miles

The Discover it® Miles is a relatively new flat-rate card offered by Discover.

Cardholders will earn 1.5X miles per dollar for all purchases, and each point is worth 1 cent. That means you’ll be earning a cash back equivalent of 1.5% with this card.

You’ll also get the excellent Miles Match deal from Discover, which will double the total miles earned in your first year with the card. This effectively means you’ll be earning 3X miles per dollar for that first year, though you won’t have access to the extra miles until the end of the year.

There aren’t many perks with this card; the only real travel benefit is an annual $30 inflight WiFi statement credit, which will help offset the cost of inflight internet services.

The Discover it Miles has no annual fee and no foreign transaction fees.

Discover now offers a free credit monitoring service to anyone, even if you’re not a cardholder.
