We Want It Wednesday: An Animal-Friendly Credit Card

When I was in college, I got my first credit card. I went with the recommendation of a co-worker and signed up for the Discover student card. (I actually still need to change over to the non-student version, since I graduated.)

It was a fantastic decision. I love love love my credit card and highly recommend it to all my friends. I’m only slightly motivated by the promise of my friend and I getting bonus cash when I refer them.  😉

Anywho, there are about a billion options for card designs. I choose a couple of Golden Retrievers. I am asked all the time if they are my dogs. It takes all my self control to not say “You kidding? My girl is wayyyy cuter!”  Except those Goldens are darn adorable.

ImageSo why do I want a new credit card? Because while poking around on Facebook today I saw a post from the Humane Society of the US. Apparently, they’ve teamed up with Discover to offer a credit card that donates to the HSUS with every purchase!

After I make the switch to the grown up card, and double check to make sure I’ll still get the same benefits with the new card, I intend to add it to my wallet. Best news? Discover is very cool about letting me have multiple cards. So, if for some reason I don’t want to use the HSUS card, I can use my Golden card!

So I’m sure you’re asking yourself if I’m getting paid for this little “advertisement”. The answer is: NO! Discover and the Humane Society don’t even know who I am! I just really like my credit card. And I like lazy ways of helping charities. Because I am both lazy and charitable. If you’ll notice, I didn’t even put in a referral code. See? I’m such a great friend, aren’t I? I’m doing this to help you!

  1. What a great idea. I try not to use credit (although I do have debt that I’m paying off), but I wouldn’t have a problem with a card like this. I would just pay it off monthly and feel great that I’m giving back to a cause I support.

    Thanks for sharing.

    • I pretty much use my credit card more than anything. I love it to death because I get a decent amount of cash back that I use on Amazon. I was always good about paying it off every month (glad I grew up with a mother who used to work for a bank!). I’ll admit that’s harder when I’m between jobs, though. =)
      And no problem! I’m always happy to share stuff like this. Thanks for reading. ^-^

  2. I love my Discover card. I had no idea they partnered with HSUS! Kimberly’s advice about paying it off monthly is definitely key! As long as you have a handle on your expenses, Discover has wonderful rewards!!

    • I think it must be a new thing, from what I understand some of the representatives at Discover didn’t know about it yet, either! I’m told we can call and add the HSUS card if we already have an account, if you’re interested.
      And yes, paying it off monthly is a great habit. You’re right, Discover is amazing with rewards. I always use my cash back on Amazon. =)
