Option to ignore zero-dollar transactions (Discover)

I would love to find a way to configure my Discover Card account to ignore all downloaded zero-dollar transactions. There have always been zero-dollar transactions, some of which are just FYI messages like "see details of your next directpay" but recently I think there might be more.

Any transaction that shows up as multiple lines on my statement or on the Discover website gets downloaded as multiple transactions (one real transaction plus one or more "junk" zero-dollar transactions).

The unwanted zero-dollar transactions have been mentioned before:

    Hi Brett,

    I use Pocketsense to download my accounts for an older version of Moneydance. The developer wrote a scrubber into the app so as to disregard zero balance transactions from Discover.

    I inquired over on the Slack channel whether or not the developer could do something similar for Moneydance but I never heard back about it.

    What I've noticed is that this month's zero balance transaction will stop downloading starting with the next billing cycle. Of course you then get a new zero balance transaction for the current cycle.

    I am still getting unwanted "zero-dollar" transactions, maybe 5-10 per month, when I download Discover Card account.

    Using Version 2019.4 (1899) for Windows. Thanks!
