Diners Club International
Diners Club began its proud history in 1950, all because a man named Frank McNamara had dinner in a New York restaurant but left his cash in another suit, leaving him unable to pay the bill without his wife having to bail him out. He resolved never to be embarrassed again and founded Diners Club.
Now, Diners Club International Ltd. is a direct banking and payment services company owned by Discover Financial Services (NYSE: DFS), one of the most recognized brands in US financial services. Diners Club provides a range of payment options, benefits and exclusive offers—in partnership with leading merchants, restaurants and service-industry brands around the world. Diners Club membership is for the select global citizen who wants to experience the best the world has to offer.
