Discover Cards Can Now be Used at PULSE ATMs
RIVERWOODS, Ill. - Discover cardholders can now use PULSE ATMs to access cash, a move that the card brand said would allow Discover members to access cash at 58% more ATMs nationwide than they had previously. "Discover Cardmembers now enjoy broader ATM acceptance than ever before," said Jan Martin, vice president with Discover Card. "This is part of our ongoing efforts to make our Cardmembers' lives easier by providing greater access to cash, more convenient payments options and innovative, new products and services that meet their financial needs." Discover Cardmembers are able to access cash through ATMs, via cash access checks or by presenting their Discover Cards and a valid ID at participating financial institutions. The introduction of PULSE ATM acceptance for Discover Cards demonstrates the continued business momentum and synergy resulting from Discover Financial Services' acquisition of the PULSE ATM/debit network in January 2005, the card brand said. The expanded acceptance was made possible by Discover Bank joining the PULSE network, which links cardholders with almost 250,000 ATMs and approximately 3.4 million POS terminals at retail locations nationwide. "This is another way Discover Financial Services is leveraging its unique business mix to further grow our business, expand service, drive usage and build greater value for our Cardmembers," continued Martin.
