After a long wait US Bank is finally releasing the Connect card that was rumored to first come out last year before the pandemic hit, then supposedly changed to January earlier this year. After that no show it was feared it was going to just be a legend told through the credit card stories of lore until now. Per DoC:

 

"Altitude Connect will launch on May 10, 2021. Comes with 50,000 points signup bonus on $5,000 spend within 120 days."

 

About time for me to step out of the garden now 🤫

Thanks for posting this @simplynoir.  I'm sure @Remedios will be pleased ❤️... or, maybe not 😄

I stayed clean for this thing for 16 very, very long months. Very long. 

Remember that giraffe that was supposed to give birth forever, that's me. 

Now I don't know if I want it, but watch me apply at midnight then complain about adding another useless card 

(Assuming it's approved).

@simplynoir  I don't see where they rescinded "in branch only" for launch.

Wouldn't that make you wait longer?

I guess the SUB will be similar for online applications.

Maybe the first-year annual fee waiver for in-branch applications only (like current CSP)?

@Remedios, unfortunately yeah since Texas has no branches 😐 so I'm counting on it being launched both online and at physical locations like the Go. Otherwise it'll be the ultimate chicken emoji block after all this waiting

 

@FinStar, I don't know if I would gamble a Texas Roadhouse steak on it her applying for it but at the very least my life lol

Re: US Bank Altitude Connect - May 10th Release Date

The point structure is very different from Go to Connect, i wonder if you're able to downgrade from Connct to Go if it's not working out for you? 

I know from experience that you cannot PC cards, espcially if co-branded. 

 

Might consider replacing my Gold with the Go anyways and save 130 a year, because it doesn't look like I'll be using my MR for a few years.
