I Successfully Converted My Discover It Miles into a Second Discover It Credit Card

Good afternoon everyone.  2 weeks ago, I wrote How to Convert an Existing Discover Credit Card into a Different Discover Credit Card Online.  In that post, I shared how I was able to convert my Discover It Miles Credit Card into a Discover It Credit Card.  I had an existing Discover It Credit Card before the conversion, so I now have 2 Discover It Credit Cards (useful if you can max out the $1,500 quarterly spending bonus categories on both credit cards).  The previous post ended when I received this confirmation email that my request was processing.  Fast forward to now when I received my new Discover It Credit Card.  I will share some insights into the process.  The process started on February 27.

When I logged into my Discover online account that night, the card name changed, but not the card art.

A few days later, I received a letter from Discover regarding the conversion process.  The conversion process would be effective March 5 and any leftover Discover It Miles would be converted to cash (1 Miles = 1 cent).

A few days after that, I received an email from Discover stating that my Discover “account has officially switched” from a Discover It Miles Credit Card into a Discover It Credit Card.  The email also stated that the new card would arrive in 3-5 days.  The card was sent out via USPS First Class Mail from Salt Lake City and arrived in 2 days.  The card came in an envelope, inside a envelope-shaped cardboard box.

I went to activate the new Discover It Credit Card, but I got an error message.  I believe this is related to having 2 Discover It Credit Cards, since the 3 digit A-### was already in use on my previous Discover It Credit Card.  I called the activation number and was able to activate the card over the phone.

When I signed into my Discover account, I saw 2 Discover It Credit Cards.  I then made sure to activate the Q1 and Q2 bonus categories for my new card.

The conversion process was pretty simple and pretty quick, but there were a few minor bumps along the way.  If you have any questions about converting or activating your card, please leave a comment below.  Have a great day everyone!
