Application Process: Apply online for a near-instant decision, or call (800) 347-0264. You typically need credit in the good to excellent range to get approved, so take some time to fix your FICO if you aren’t quite there yet.

Fees: Cardholders appreciate that this Discover card has no annual fee and no monthly maintenance fee. Balance transfers carry a 3% fee per transfer, and cash advances cost $10 or 5% of each cash advance amount, whichever is greater.

Discover kindly waives your first late payment fee. After that, expect to shell out $37 for late payments. There’s also a $37 fee for returned payments.

Rewards: Reward amounts vary with this Discover card, but you’ll always earn at least 1% cash back on qualifying purchases. Each quarter, there are rotating categories that reward you with 5% cash back for eligible purchases.

Bonus Offers: If you have multiple credit cards, you may want to focus on this one for your first year. Discover matches all cash-back rewards from your first 12 months as a cardholder.
