Re: U.S. Bank Altitude Reserve - Bonus for Insurance Payments

Does the offer require any activation? If not, I'll just shift AR to the monthly payment for a while.  Nobody else gives a benefit for insurance other than my Gold card a few months ago.

Oct 2014 $46k on $127k 36% util EQ 722 TU 727 EX 727
April 2018 $18k on $344k 5% util EQ 806 TU 810 EX 812
Jan 2019 $7.6k on $360k EQ 832 TU 839 EX 831

There's no activation, but it seems to be targeted so if you're not targeted you probably won't get the extra points. Smiley Sad

Yes, quite likely no extra points. But adding basic points to my AR stash is no worse than most other cards I have.

Re: U.S. Bank Altitude Reserve - Bonus for Insurance Payments

They gave me the $10 offer on my Cash+

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."

- Rhonda Byrne

LOL... you would think so, right?  smiley-laughing021.gif

 

The truth is I don't (usually) use it for anything that's not at the 3x rewards rate, so you would think they wouldn't like me very much. 

 

That said, since I want to be sure to get the bonus this time I went ahead and made a payment to BCBS in addition to the State Farm payment they already get every month.  (State Farm is via Google Pay, and while that should 'count' I don't want to miss out on a technicality, LOL.)

 

U.S. Bank continues to be one of my most valuable lenders. Smiley Happy
