First to Offer Cardholders the Ability to Save Cards to Google Wallet Through Online Account Center

Discover announced today that it is partnering with Google to allow cardmembers to save their credit card directly into Google Wallet by logging into the online Account Center at discover.com/googlewallet.

This will give Discover cardmembers the ability to tap and pay for purchases in-store in conjunction with the Google Wallet application on a compatible Near Field Communication (NFC) smartphone, as well as make purchases online, for a simpler, more convenient shopping experience. Cardmembers using Google Wallet to pay for items with their Discover card will continue to earn Cashback Bonus® rewards.

"Our cardholders regularly use their Discover card to make purchases and payments online, in-store and now more frequently through their mobile devices," said Sanjay Gosalia, Director of Mobile at Discover. "By offering the ability to join Google Wallet through our Account Center, Discover is providing our cardmembers with even greater flexibility and convenience when it comes to paying for their purchases."

Once logged-in to the Discover Account Center, a simple click-to-add-process allows cardmembers to add their Discover card and make it their primary credit card in the Google Wallet. The credit card will automatically sync to the Google Wallet application for those that have a compatible NFC smartphone. Additionally, Discover cardmembers can add their credit card through the Google Wallet mobile application on their smartphone, or by adding their card through their Google account online.

"We're excited to partner with Discover to make it even easier for cardmembers to pay for their purchases," said Robin Dua, Head of Product Management, Google Wallet. "By providing a simple way for cardholders to securely add their credit card to Google Wallet directly from the Discover website, we're extending the opportunity to pay with Discover through Google Wallet at hundreds of thousands of merchants."
