RIVERWOODS -- Discover announced it will begin issuing contactless-enabled credit cards over the next several months.

With contactless technology, Discover cardmembers can tap their Discover cards at card readers with the Contactless Symbol to pay at millions of stores and will continue to earn rewards on every purchase

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

"Contactless technology has become increasingly popular with our cardmembers and more accepted by merchants worldwide, and we want to deliver the best shopping experience to our cardmembers," said Szabolcs Paldy, senior vice president, marketing at Discover. "The goal of this digital technology is to make payments fast, easy and secure, and give cardmembers more choices in how they pay."

The rollout of contactless-enabled cards will start this month for most Discover it and Discover More cardmembers who need cards reissued or replaced. Beginning in December, contactless cards will start to be issued to new Discover cardmembers.
