Company Summary: Discover Financial Services is a financial services company in the US that owns and operates Discover Bank, which provides checking as well as savings account, personal loans, student loans, home equity loans, and credit cards. Discover Financial Services also owns and operated Discover and Pulse networks, and owns Diners Club International. Discover Card is one of the largest credit card brands in the US with nearly 50 million cardholders. Discover may be located in Riverwoods, Illinois.

Discover’s history began in 1981 when Sears purchased the Dean Witter Reynolds brokerage firm organization and Coldwell, Banker & Company as an effort to include financial services to their portfolio of customer services. But Sears realized several years later that having a one-stop financial services center in Sears stores was not as successful as they had hoped. In 1993, Sears sold off its financial services branch as a new independent publicly traded company called Dean Witter, Discover & Co. with Dean Witter Reynolds in charge. After several name changes in 1995 to 1999, the company rebranded itself as Discover Financial Services, Inc. and the Discover Network log replaced the old brand’s logo.

Discover strives to lead digital bank and payment services. They have a mission to assist people in spending smarter, managing debt better, and saving more to achieve a brighter financial future.
