You can choose from a limited number of Discover Card designs when you first open an account. They include beach scene, cassette tape, daisy and skyline backgrounds, as well as solid colors. But you will have to request a replacement card if you want to pick from the full list of Discover credit card designs. They aren’t available for your original card. The good news is that getting a new card design is free and shouldn’t take more than a week.
You can change your card design: To change your card design, log into your account and select “Choose a Card Design.” Your new card will arrive in 4-6 business days.
You can’t submit your own photo: While some credit card companies will allow you to fully personalize a card by uploading a photo as your card background, Discover is not one of them. You are limited to the designs offered on the Discover website.
Your old card will still work: You’ll get a new card when you change your card design, but your account number will be the same. This means your old card will continue to work until its expiration date. You can deactivate it by calling 1-800-347-2683.
While a card’s rewards, interest and fees are all more important than looks, personalizing your credit card can be fun. Unfortunately, you don’t get to choose your Discover Card design until you’re actually signed up.
You get some pretty bland ones when you first get approved. If you care for that sort of thing, you can just go to their website, and request a replacement card, which will give you the chance to pick some flashy ones.
