Discover Cards Removed from Apple Pay
Yesterday I received an email that is quite disturbing, so I thought I would ask if anyone has had something similar happen. Recently I purchased an iPhone for the purpose of using both mine and my wife’s Discover cards with Apple Pay.
When I received the phone about a month ago, it was quite simple to link both of the cards to the Apple Pay wallet. Since then I haven’t made very many purchases due to my travel schedule, but I have used Apple Pay a few times at places like Staples and even a few restaurants.
My family and I are in Hawaii right now and haven’t used Apple Pay on anything recently. Last night I received the following email for both of our Discover cards:
As you’ve requested, your Discover card has been removed from Apple Pay.
After receiving the emails, I went into the Apple Pay app on the phone and the cards are indeed gone. I can’t test whether or not it will work to re-add them since the cards are at home, but the whole thing is suspicious. Neither of our accounts are seemingly compromised and no new charges have been added to the cards.
To find out what happened I contacted Discover and was told that the cards were removed from the Apple Pay app. I asked my wife and she insists that she didn’t do it. Discover says there is no issue with my account and the cards should be find to add back.
Based on this information my guesses are:
- This was some sort of a glitch.
- My wife somehow deleted the cards without knowing it.
- My account was somehow compromised. (This doesn’t seem likely given that the cards have not been used.)
Has this happened to anyone else? If so, did you ever figure out why?
