Discover Bank Reviews – Intro

As a banking institution, Discover Bank offers services and products that are similar to those provided by most brick-and-mortar banks like Bank of America, Citi, Bank of the West, and Wells Fargo.

However, as an online banking firm, Discover Bank does not operate a lot of physical bank locations and relies heavily on online banking tools. Based on these factors, the bank is able to pass along “overhead cost savings” in the form of additional savings and high yields to its depositors.

How Safe Is Discover Bank?

Questions that are frequently asked by potential new customers include “Is Discover Bank safe?” and “Is the bank FDIC-insured?” Yes, Discover Bank is FDIC-insured. What this means is that your funds are FDIC-insured up to the maximum allowed by law (FDIC deposit insurance is $250,000 per depositor).

In addition, Discover has a “$0 Liability Protection,” which means that you will never be responsible for any unauthorized use of your Discover bank debit card nor would you be responsible for any fraudulent online/mobile banking transaction that is made on your account.

Overall, Discover Bank is safe (relative to other online banks) in that it provides the below free protection and insurance services:

  • Free Proactive Fraud Monitoring service
  • $0 Liability Protection service
  • Free Bill Pay Protection services
  • Military grade encryption protocol
  • Enhanced online protections__

Withdrawing Money from Your Discover Credit Card

What if you want to withdraw money from your Discover credit card account instead of your Discover checking or savings account? Are there any ATM fees?
