US Bank has dropped their 5% BillPay option for the next quarter. I can't say I'm really surprised. What really irks me, though, is that I just went to their web site and as of August 10, 2013, they are dropping the .25% extra rewards on the card if you have the gold checking account and .50% extra rewards if you have the platinum. I checked and they are not grandfathering anyone in. Booooo US Bank. Bad play!

I am closing my US platinum checking account because it is not worth to pay $18 a month for benefits like free checks etc which I would be rarely using.

There goes one of the better cards on the market. I opened a US Bank checking account because of the bonus. I guess I'll be closing that. I haven't looked yet at the categories. I'm guessing they dropped Airlines too (my two categories).
