Q: I have an Escape by Discover card and I’ve accumulated tons of miles over the past few years. Is there a certain airline I have to use to redeem them?
A: You’re not limited by Discover card company as to which airlines you can use with the miles you’ve earned by using your Escape by Discover card. If a particular airline does not accept them, that airline will tell you when you go to book your flight; however, we don’t believe you’ll have any trouble with any airline.
Discover card company also does not have any limits on which flight you take or which seat you prefer. This will only be dictated by availability through the airline itself.
Don’t forget that you pay for your flight first, using your Escape Card. After the charge shows up on your account, you can then redeem your miles. Just make sure you do so within 90 days after the date that the travel purchase was posted to your account.
Does that sound a little confusing? Maybe this will make it clearer. If you have 10,000 miles that you can redeem, and you purchase a $200 airline ticket, as soon as the $200 shows up on your account, then you take the steps to redeem them for your $100 travel credit. You do this by either logging into the Account Center or calling 1-800-DISCOVER (1-800-347-2683).
