How to manage your spend limits on the Discovery Bank app


Did you know that you don't have to visit a bank branch to set up or change your spend limits? You can easily control your spending by managing your limits on the Discovery Bank app.

Your Discovery Bank app is a bank branch in the palm of your hand. It gives you the power and control over where and how you spend your money, which is important if you want to achieve your savings goals.

The best way to save money is to set spend limits for yourself. Decide how much money you can spend on your card daily and monthly, and then set those limits for each of your cards.

You can set and change your limits for each of your Discovery Bank cards easily on the Discovery Bank app, anywhere, anytime.

You can set your overall monthly spend and budget limits - and choose daily and monthly limits for each purchase and withdrawal type. Plus, you can customise your limits for in-store and online transactions, local and international transactions, purchases, ATM withdrawals and more.
