Discover it® Miles

The Discover it® Miles is a relatively new card offered by Discover. It comes with no annual fee, a decent APR, and generous rewards.

Cardholders will earn 1.5 miles per dollar for all purchases, and at the end of the year Discover will double the total miles earned. This effectively means you’ll be earning 3 miles per dollar for the first year, though you won’t have access to the miles until the end of the year.

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