Discover and Heartland Extend "On Us" Program

February 8th 2020


Discover On Us Program Extended to December 2020

In October 2018, we debuted a Discover promotional program called Discover “On Us” in an effort to motivate current merchants to accept Discover cards at their place of business. The program was such a HUGE success with over $2M rebated to participating merchants. Given the recent success of this program, Discover and Heartland are excited to announce the extension of the program through December 31, 2020. Eligible merchants enrolled in the “On Us” program will receive free processing fees on Discover Card transactions for twelve months. 


Merchants must be qualified by Discover and have had no Discover card transactions processed for the last six months in order to be eligible for this program. Discover determines each merchant’s eligibility.

How the Program Works

By accepting a Discover card transaction at their point of sale, the merchant expressly agrees to the terms of acceptance and will be able to receive monthly rebates on their Discover Card processing fees. The merchant will automatically receive a refund on all Discover interchange fees for a twelve-month period. These refunds will appear as a credit on their Heartland Merchant statement and will be a month in arrears. 

How Long is the Promotion Offered?

Originally, the program was scheduled to enroll newly qualified Heartland merchants until December 31, 2019. However, the program was such a huge success that Discover asked Heartland to extend the program until December 31, 2020. 

The promotion will not be offered for new merchants enrolled after December 31, 2020.
