A Good Credit Card, A Good Cause

Discover will donate $20 to Operation Homefront for each new Discover More credit card it issues.For each new Discover More Card it issues through July 24, the credit card company says it will make a $20 donation to Operation Homefront.

Operation Homefront is an organization that provides emergency financial aid and other assistance to troops and their families.

The organization was founded in February 2002 to help the family members of troops deployed abroad after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Operation Homefront provides:

  • Financial assistance
  • Food
  • Emergency home repairs
  • Critical baby items such as formula, food and diapers
  • Home and appliance repair
  • Furniture and household items
  • Local moving assistance
  • Wounded Warrior Transitional Family Housing

Discover says it will donate up to $125,000 to the organization.

In addition to helping out a good cause, the Discover More Card will also help out your wallet by providing a 0% intro APR on purchases and balance transfers for 15 months.

After that, you’ll pay a variable 11.99% to 19.99% APR (that’s the prime rate plus 8.74% to 16.74%) based on your credit history.

This card also has a great cash back rewards program, giving customers 5% cash back in rotating categories throughout the year and up to 1% cash back on everything else.

There is no annual fee.

I’ve written a lot lately about credit cards with pretty sweet sign-up bonuses.

A few hundred dollars here, a few free flights there, and issuers have attracted hundreds of thousands of new customers.

Discover has done something a little different here in an attempt to attract a different type of customer while giving to a very worthy cause.
