Students Who Vote and Are Approved for a New Account Receive $50 Statement Credit1
Riverwoods, IL, Aug. 9, 2017 – Discover wants college students to make the final decision when it comes to the next Discover it® Student Card design. From Aug. 9 through Sept. 21, Discover is hosting a pun-inspired social media campaign through Facebook and Instagram asking students to go to www.discover.com/student-card-poll.html and cast their vote for which design should become the next Discover it® Student Credit Card. Discover also is offering a $50 statement credit for students who apply through the link on the poll, are approved, and make purchase within the first three months.
“A card’s design can be a reflection of a cardmember’s personality,” said Christine Forman, a marketing director for Discover. “This social media campaign allows us to engage with college students in a fun way on Facebook and Instagram, and ultimately gives students an opportunity to make a direct impact by telling us which design speaks to their unique style.”
Participants can choose from the following six card designs: a colorful sunset, a selfie-inspired moustache, a hand giving the peace sign, a Frenchie wearing sunglasses, a vintage vinyl record and an iridescent pattern.
Voting closes Sept. 21 at midnight Central Time. Once all votes are tallied, Discover will announce the winning card design, and make it available in early 2018.
