RIVERWOODS, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Discover today announced the launch of the Discover it® Business credit card, the latest addition to the Discover it family of credit cards. The new card offers unlimited 1.5 percent cash back on all purchases, as well as free business and security features, all with no annual fee1.
“The Discover it Business card is a smart, simple and rewarding credit card that puts all the features and benefits that Discover cardmembers love and rely on in the hands of business owners,” said Andrew Hopkins, senior vice president of marketing at Discover. “We’re looking forward to providing Discover’s unparalleled customer experience—from rewards, to security and customer service—to business owners so they can focus on the things that matter most, like serving their customers and growing their businesses.”
Business owners have a lot on their plates, and according to market research by Discover, one in four small business owners cite keeping track of expenses as a top worry or concern2.

Plus, employers can get free employee cards with spending limits for each employee and the ability to earn rewards on all of their purchases.
The new card also makes it easy for business owners to be rewarded for their hard work.
