Just spoke to a CSR, and she said that this applies to new AND existing cardholders, and that if I use the card at a supermarket today I will get 6%.   Since CSRs always know and speak the truth....

 

I will try it soon.   If it is as she said, for the last 3 months this will be quite a card, 6% uncapped on groceries, and 3% everywhere else.

Yeah, losing the 3% a the end of this year was already known, as stated in prior comments, this would have gone to a 2% card, but they went a different direction. Actually the 6% on groceries from now until the end of 2023 seems like a great deal for my current lineup. I'll have to see if Costco codes as Grocery.


Have a Walmart and Target on my rewards sheet that did not code for 6x.

I will bet $100 fico dollars Costco is the same.

The rewards did start on 9/1, had a grocery the day before (3x) and on the 1st (6x), same store.

Re: USALLIANCE Visa Signature (Groceries)

Went out to USAlliance web page to re-read the fine print today.

Discovered that depending on which path of entry you get two different sets of rewards (fine print)

 

Main
   Borrow
       Credit Cards
      (Blue banner to learn more about Visa-Signature 3%)
      https://go.usalliance.org/signature-card-rewards

Gets to (3/2) wording
*
Points accrue at 3 points per dollar as of 04/01/2021.
Point accrual rate is subject to change at the discretion of the Credit Union.
3 Points per dollar accrual rate is a promotional value and expires on 12/31/2022,
at which time points will accrue at 2 points per dollar.

Because I am getting the 6% (Grocery), I think they have just missed changing one of the pages.

It could be misleading to new visitor however.

Yes, I had just checked that my first three grocery transactions had indeed earned 6x when I got the email!   Glad MyFico alerted me first.

 

For those of use with heavy grocery spend, this really is amazing (for 15 months or so) especially on a no AF card.   And, unlike BCP, no cap.

 

I don't mind the loss of 2%, as I wasn't planning on using it as my 2% card because of the $25 increment redemption structure, and the FTF (though it's smaller than many).   Now wait to see what happens after 12/31/2023!

Agree 6% grocery > 2% flat.

* However (IMHO) *

3% flat > 6% grocery

 

It shows they want to play the rewards game for awhile.

I also will be using it for grocery spend.

I agree with that.  But, once the 3% goes away, I want to calculate the impact!   With PPMC giving 3% on Paypal transactions, BCE giving 3% up to $6K on online, and AR giving 3/4.5% on mobile, much of the flat 3% is covered.  The exception seems to be my vet, who don't take mobile pay...

Re: USALLIANCE Visa Signature (Groceries)

I chatted with a live agent and she checked for me...The 6% on groceries (unlimited) applies to end of 2023...The 3% on everything else will revert to 2% (Not 1% as some here thought) after end of December 2022...However she did mention that if they change their mind and decide to keep the 3% then the members will be notifed before year's end...
