Just received my first extra $25 rewards card on my Cash+ card, ( for letting rewards add up to $100 ), for the previous month of Sept.  In Oct., I have already spent $2000 on home improvements so that will get me another $100 in rewards.  In addition, I have a platinum account so that will get me another half percent and since I have gone over the $100 saved amount I will receive the additional $25 card.  So, my rewards will be $135, or  a 6 3/4% return. That is not bad.  I love the card, and US Bank. 


Congratulations on gaining great rewards.  I too have been getting a great return in rewards. I am however convinced that this card is not sustainable for US Bank. I predict in the not too distant future the reward parameters will change. They are already practicing a bait and switch tactic by not issuing the Cash + to all who apply. I fully expect there will be a lowering of cash reward opportunity in the future. I will use it extensively until that sad day arrives.

I felt that as soon as I noticed the card. I am just hoping it will still be around in 6 months.

 


I don't know, this card is getting advertised on their website. My guess is for them to get new customers in to their branches.  The card is a good deal and is putting US Banks name on the map for once on the credit card market. From an advertising prospective it would not be a good choice for US Bank to change this card or stop issuing it.

Re: US Bank Cash + Visa Signature

I realize this is a little late posting, but just giving my input. I have had the Cash+ Card for about 5 months and I love it. The rewards cash back you receive I think is great, there may be other cards out there, but this one is definitely good from my perspective. 

 

I also bank with US Bank, so I have been satisfied, I would recommend it.

This card is very interesting.  If the Cash+ went away, I would go for this.

Remember Citi Forward is a 5 point per dollar card, and not really a 5% unless you got the Citi Preferred in the mix.  

 

Citi Forward is really 4 points (4 cent value) per dollar spent. If you also have a Citi Preferred it'll equal 5 cent value. If you have a Citi travel card ($120 annual fee or $495) you can get upto 1.33% for travel.

 

Also don't forget Amazon.com is still considered a bookstore :smileywink: Nice getting 5 points for buying a $800 projector :smileywink:

Walmart Discover $10,000... Chase SW $8,500... Freedom $7,000... CSP $6,000... Amex Delta $3,000... Amex BCP $2,000... Local CU $1,500...

I use it all the time on Amazon.  I may go ahead and switch my Rhapsody and Hulu to the Cash +.  The total is about 23 bucks for the bill, so I might not go through the hassle.  Every other bill is paid through there.

 

Does the 5% for bill pay count if I pay my insurance lump sum?
