You can earn 50,000 bonus points for opening a US Bank Altitude Connect Visa Signature Card and spending $3,000 in 120 days. Those points are worth $500 cash back!
This card is a step up from the US Bank Altitude Go Visa Signature Card which offers 20,000 bonus points, but has no annual fee.
The $95 annual fee is waived for the first year with the intro offer
- 4 points per dollar on travel
- 4 points per dollar on gas
- 2 points per dollar on groceries and grocery delivery
- 2 points per dollar on streaming
- 2 points per dollar on dining
- 1 point per dollar elsewhere.
- There are no foreign transaction fees.
You can redeem points at a value of 1 cent each for statement credits or cash sent to US Bank checking or savings accounts.
You can also redeem points to offset the card’s annual fee at a value of 1 cent each.
If you enroll in real-time rewards you’ll get 500 bonus points and you can then choose to instantly pay yourself back for purchases at a value of 1 cent each.
Alas, you can’t transfer these points into miles, so this card won’t be part of a spending and redemption strategy like the Chase Quinfecta. Essentially it’s a cash back card, but with some unique perks and categories for a cash back card.
Global Entry/Pre-Check Fee Refund:
It costs $85 to apply for a 5 year TSA Pre-Check membership which makes flying pleasant again. Shorter lines, no need to remove your shoes, belt, jacket, or hat. You can keep your laptop and small liquids inside your carry-on. And you go through a good old fashioned metal detector instead of assuming the position in the body scanner.
It costs $100 to apply for a 5 year Global Entry membership which lets you bypass the customs line. If you have Global Entry you also get TSA Pre-Check for free.
If you charge either on your card the fee will be refunded, once every 4 years.
My whole family has Global Entry and it sure makes traveling a whole lot easier!
$30 Annual Streaming Bonus:
Put a streaming service on your card for 11 consecutive months and you’ll get a $30 statement credit. You can keep earning this $30 bonus by continuing to charge a streaming service on your card.
Plus, you earn double points on streaming.
