We use the highest U.S. Prime Rate listed in the online The Wall Street Journal ( on the last business day of the month. For the purchase APR, we add from 9.74% to 18.74% to the Prime Rate based on your creditworthiness. When we evaluate your creditworthiness, we consider your credit report, all the information you provided and other information. Customers with the best credit profiles receive the lowest rates. Some customers may receive higher rates and may be offered an account with different rates or terms, including no introductory rates but the same cash back rewards offer. For the cash advance APR, we add 21.74% to the Prime Rate. Your variable APRs will never be less than zero or higher than 29.99%.

This offer applies to balance transfers that post to your account by 3/10/2024. It takes at least 14 days after your account is opened to process payments to your other accounts. You may cancel a balance transfer at any time prior to that by calling 1-800-347-3085. Continue to make all required payments to your other accounts until you confirm that the balance transfers were made. Balance transfers may not be used to pay any Discover accounts and do not earn rewards. You may transfer any amount, up to your credit available for transfers, which may be less than your total credit line. If your balance transfer request will exceed your available credit, we will process your transfers for less than the amount requested, in the order requested. You may only make balance transfers to accounts that list you as an accountholder. The minimum payment requirement can cause promotional balances to be paid in full prior to the end of the promotional period. There is no grace period on your balance transfers. If you take advantage of this balance transfer offer, you will be charged interest on purchases unless your purchase APR is at a promotional 0% APR. To avoid interest on new purchases after you transfer a balance, you must pay all balances on your account, including any balances you transfer under this offer, in full by the first payment due date. See your Cardmember Agreement for details.
We apply payments and credits at our discretion, including in a manner most favorable or convenient for us. Each billing period, we will generally apply amounts you pay that exceed the minimum payment due to balances with higher APRs before balances with lower APRs as of the date we credit your payment.
