LOL... Me too.   I would guess this product has it's target market/demographic.


+2. I think if they have to advertise the APR as a major selling point (since it's the 2nd item on the list), it's likely that the rewards will suck (and they do).

Re: New US Bank CC

This card looks very lackluster. It's like a ghetto version of the freedom and bank americard minus the bonus categories...

I guess they are being overly conservative after the cash+ racked up quite a bit of losses for the bank.

I think all of you are missing the major selling point of this card:

   Redeem for real Rewards

 


When you think of all the cards you have that you either can't redeem for rewards at all, or have to redeem for imaginary rewards ("dinner for two on a magic carpet in the elves castle, 15,000 points"), this is a refreshing change!

The principle being, the rewards are lackluster for some individuals.  Think of CreditScholar's CC portfolio, lifestyle and spending habits.  This hardly stacks up.  Same for me.  However, that doesn't mean that this product (or rewards) doesn't fit someone's spend patterns or lifestyle.

Oh OK. An annual fee would suggest a card worth having for him I see. Thanks for clarifying :smileywink:

Re: New US Bank CC

For someone who PIFs, the rewards on Cap1's Quicksilver card are better than this one. 1.5% Cash back as opposed to 1 "reward point" per dollar, redeemable at who knows what exchange rate for cash back or whatever else.

Re: New US Bank CC

[ Edited ]

Aside from the low rate, why would anyone opt for this over the Cash+?

 

I guess, for the signup bonus, but $100 is hardly compelling.

 

*Edited*  PS - I see, the option to redeem 25,000 points for a $400 airline ticket.
