Discover Ranks Second In The Customer Satisfaction Survey
According to the 2017 Direct Retail Banking Satisfactions study, Discover is the second of the nine participating U.S. direct banks, scoring 869 points out of 1,000, being one in three banks topping the industry average for overall satisfaction.

Discover competed against such banks as Capital One 360, E*TRADE Bank and Nationwide Bank.
