Can you PC a US Bank card?

I wanted to add the US Bank Cash + card as my finale card but I noticed you can only apply for it in a branch. Is it possilble to apply for say the Flex Perks card and have it PC'd to Cash+ later on? Does US Bank allow this?

The truth is out there...

Yes, you can PC if your account is eligible.

 

I don't know what the criteria is, but I know you need a CL of $5000+ to get the Cash+, but other than that, I don't know what their rules are on PC-ing. 

 

I PC'd from the FlexPerks Select visa to the Cash+ Visa Sig a few months ago. I originally opened my FlexPerks account 2 years ago.

Discover IT $30K | FNBO Visa $25K | Citi Forward (grandfathered 5x Restaurants!) $14.5K | US Bank Cash+ Visa Sig $15K | Priceline/Barclays $15K | Chase Freedom $10.5K | Amazon/Chase Visa Sig $8.3k | Southwest Premier $7.8K | BoA Cash Rewards 1-2-3 Sig $7.5K | Fidelity AMEX $7K | Citi Double Cash $6.5K | BoA Cash Rewards 1-2-3 Sig $7.5K | Sallie Mae World MC/Barclays $5K | Capital One Cash Rewards $5K | Commerce Bank $5K | WF Cash Back Visa $3.6K | Younkers/Comenity $2.4K | AMEX BCE $3K | Target $1K | EX FICO (from AMEX): 762, TU08 FICO (from Discover): 763, AAoA: 4.3 years

Re: Can you PC a US Bank card?

Awesome! Thanks!

 

What's the standard waiting time before requesting a PC? I'd want to PC my card immediately. I know with the Cash+ you'd need a FICO in the mid 700s. I'll be seeing a big spike in credit once my new balances reports.

As far as I have heard there is no specific time frame.  Some accounts they make wait 6 months and others they put the request through immediately.  I would definitely call and ask.  The worst they can say is no.  It's not like they will take any AA against you. 

 

Now how about requesting a US BANK APR reduction?  Does anyone have any experience with that?

I got my Flexperks cash rewards card March of this year, called Wednesday and got it PC. Logged in today and they've issued me a new acct # and a link to add my categories.. New cards should arrive in about 8 days.. Make sure you have no derogs and that the limit on your US Bank card is at least $5,000..If it isn't, then wait six months and request an increase and then attempt the PC..

Re: Can you PC a US Bank card?

Standard wait time to change the terms of an account is 1 year, but I have never had US Bank refer to that. But per credit card laws they could not change your AF for 1 year, flexperks sig to cash+ is an AF change.

 

I have not had the flexperks sig for 1 year and US bank has offered to change it to the Cash+, so they don't seem to over interpret the credit card laws like some other banks.

 

Have you tried applying over the phone? Maybe you can apply for the cash+ that way.

 

US Bank switched it to an in person app because they want people to have a relationship with their bank before they get that card. They don't want people in states that don't even have branches getting that card. So they took it off their website.

 

If you do not have a branch near you, US Bank does not want you to have that card.

Too many INQs & low AAoA so I'm off to tend the Garden.     Age:23

You need to open at least 12 months for any PC.

Re: Can you PC a US Bank card?

I have the Flexperks card for about a year with a credit limit of $1000. I recently called them and requested for the credit limit increase, and also requested for PC to Cashplus. They couldnt do both at the same time. First, they increased the limit to $5000. I called back a couple of days later, just to thank them, and requested to speak to a supervisor. Thanked him again and asked him about options to convert to Cash Plus. He did ask me a few questions and then mentioned that I am eligible for PC to Cash+ right away. (now that the credit limit is at $5000).  After a week, I got the new card in mail.

 

I also bank at USBank, I think that has helped with my PC request.

Do you live near a US Bank branch? I'm not sure which US Bank credit cards, besides the Cash+, are available nationwide to apply for. I've heard of people getting denied for living outside their service area.
