$0 transactions

It appears that almost every charge I make with my Discover card generates
a $0 transaction in addition to the actual transaction. What I've been
doing is one-by-one deleting them from the downloaded transactions so they
don't clutter up my register. Is there some way to make them
automatically just "go away"?

I know of no way to automatically avoid those $0.00 transactions.

I should have added: you don't have to delete them one-by-one.
You can select all the $0.00 transactions in the account register as you would select multiple files in Windows Explorer. Then right-click a selected transaction and choose "Delete" (or press CTRL+d).

I know that -- instead of deleting them one by one I could "accept" them and then once it a while sort the register by "amount", delete all the zeroes, then sort it back by date. [I don't think that if I do a "find" for amount = 0 that I can then easily delete the transactions it finds. Can you? 'cause that'd be even easier]

If you Accepted all the $0.00 transactions together after processing all the non-zero downloaded transactions), you could group the $0.00 transactions together at the end of the register by sorting on "Order Entered". But the pre-processing might be more trouble than it's worth.
A "Find" will only find one transaction at a time, so not very useful.
A "Find All" will find all transactions in all registers (and you can sort the "found" results by Account). But you can't delete transactions from the "found" dialog.
You can create a Banking > Transaction report for the account in question. On the Advanced tab of the Customize dialog, you can elect to display only transactions with an amount of $0.00. Then you can select all the transactions (IN THE REPORT) as you would select multiple files in Windows Explorer. With all the $0.00 transactions selected in the report, you can either: click the "Edit" button (IN THE REPORT) and choose "Delete transaction(s)", or right-click a selected transaction (IN THE REPORT) and choose "Delete transaction(s)".

You don't have to accept the downloaded transaction. They can be deleted directly from the downloaded transaction list. Just right click on them.

But they can only be deleted one-at-a-time from the downloaded transaction list.
Once they have been Accepted, they can all be deleted at one time.
