  6. You can’t use this debit card outside North America.
  7. Discover almost have no physical branches (more accurately, it has one physical branch in Delaware).

  2. Direct Deposit (DD) requirement: at least two Direct Deposits of $250 or more must be received within 90 days of account funding. There’s no DD requirement for the double cashback sign-up bonus.

The 1% cash back seems to be low compared to the cash back rate by credit cards, but this is a debit card, and may be useful for those places that do not accept credit cards.
