US Bank

Question... Are you required to have an account with US Bank to apply for their cards?

Don't sound the ERT alarms.  LOL!  I'm just asking for future reference.

Awesome!

I've read lots of good things about them on the boards so I am adding them to my future list.

Re: US Bank

So you know they usually give the 7-10 day message. Unless your credit is stellar. So don't necessarily take it as a denial. I got it for both my cards.

Re: US Bank

Got my first US Bank Affinity Credit Card (Visa Signature) from an in the mail pre-selected offer. No banking relationship at the time. Since then I have added a second US Bank Credit Cash+ Visa Signature Card and a Premier Line of Credit (the PLOC does require a bank relationship and I moved my business to them becuase of how well they treated me).
