We already know that Google Wallet has expanded its compatibility and now works with all major credit and debit cards, even if American Express isn’t too thrilled about that. In any case, most Google Wallet users are thrilled, myself included, and Discover has taken it upon itself to make it even easier to use the service with its credit cards.
Instead of logging in to your Google account online and typing in your Discover card number – or worse, typing everything into your phone – you can now simply head directly to Discover’s Google Wallet landing page at the link below, and sign in to your account there. Next, just follow the on screen instructions to sign in to your Google account, and the rest is taken care of automatically. After you confirm that you want your Discover card added to your Google Wallet, it’s done right away – you don’t have to type in the long number yourself, or type in your billing address, social security number, or other sensitive information.
The process really couldn’t be simpler, and once you complete everything, your Discover card will automatically show up on your phone, online, when making Play Store purchases, etc. Discover even gives you the option to automatically add your card to another Wallet, as well, in case you share the card with a partner or spouse, like I do.
And in case you’re wondering, Discover assures you during this process that you’ll still earn all your points or miles, just as you normally would. In my opinion, American Express needs to take a page out of Discover’s book, and jump on board, too – it’s better for consumers that way, and opens these companies up to a lot more potential business. What’s not to love?
