I wrote before that you could use Discover card to pay bills with Evolve Money to get 1% cash back.

But now you can NOT use your Discover card with Evolve Money to pay certain bills like:

  • Mortgages
  • Car payments
  • 529 savings accounts
  • Retail store cards (like Kohls, Sears)
  • Student loans

Folks got an email from Evolve Money about the change.

You Can Pay Your Utility Bill With Your Discover Card Through Evolve Money

And in 2015, you’ll be able to use your Visa and MasterCard with Evolve Money.

I hope the same bill payment restrictions aren’t applied to Visa and MasterCard!

Bottom Line

You can no longer use your Discover card with Evolve Money to pay bills like mortgages, car loans, 529 savings accounts, retail store cards, and student loans.

But you can still pay your utilities and other bills without fees using your Discover card to get 1% cash back.

The news isn’t all bad because in 2015 you’ll be able to use your Visa and MasterCard with Evolve Money.

I just stopped accepting Discover Cards at my business. I have no idea what the motivation for Evolve to drop them was, however for me it was the fact they allow customers to dispute charges over and over. Usually, once a merchant proves a customer made a disputed charge and wins the case, that is the end of it. Discover, however, allows a cardholder to keep filing a dispute. This is an easy few clicks online for them but generates a lot of work for the merchant. Sometimes they even suddenly find in the cardholders favor after a few times when nothing has changed. Eventually you give up and file a lawsuit to get paid. Perhaps Discover has done the same thing to Evolve. Nice perhaps for the cardholders, but Merchants are not going to continue to put up with it.

Correction….not a Vanillla Reload but a OneVanilla Prepaid Visa card.

I was using a Vanilla Reload card to pay bills through Evolve in November and December.

That’s because these guys are scam artists!

That’s kind of a funny email message from Evolve…

“Our goal is to provide you the best service and flexible payment options! Now let’s talk about how we are making our service less flexible!”
