Since Discover was founded in 1985 you've been able to pay your bill in person through its fouder, Sears. The iconic American brand that's seen better days will discontinue Walk-in Cash Payments to Discover Cards today - July 1st 2014.
According to the Discover Card website...
"Effective July 1, 2014, Discover cardmembers will no longer be able to make payments to their Discover account with cash, cashier's checks or money orders at Sears locations. Cardmembers may still make payments towards their Discover account via personal check at Sears locations, online at www.discover.com, by mailing us a personal check, cashier's check or money order, calling us at 1-800-DISCOVER (1-800-347-2683), or by sending us a cash payment from any Western Union location. Please note, additional fees may be charged by Western Union or the business issuing your money order or cashier's check."
For almost 30 years cardholders have been able to pay their Discover Card bill with cash at Sears. This sudden change could put cash preferred, underserved, underbanked or as we like to say, self-banked Discover Card members in a bit of a bind when they need to make a payment.
Discover Card payment options are limited. One option is to send in a personal check:
Payment Address: Discover Financial Services
P.O. Box 6103
Carol Stream, IL 60197-6103Note: Please remember to always pay with a personal check...Please write your account number on the "memo" line, and to avoid late fees, always allow 7—10 days for your payment to reach us.
7-10 business days reduces the card's utility. Also, cardholders can no longer send a cashier's check or a money order to pay their bill. What if Discover Card members need to make a payment that posts quickly and/or with cash?
Fuze Network has a solution for Discover Card Members. They can pay in cash at any one of our retail parter locations. Payments post the next day! All you have to do is swipe your card and pay the cashier. Here at Fuze we believe everyone should have the ability to add cash to any card wherever and whenever they like. For many cardholders the reason they choose a particular card is convenience, and with this sudden change in Discover Card's payment policy, Fuze can provide that convenience.
