Re: Bye Bye BB&T! Hello Truist. New Card Offerings What does everyone think?

this is great! Although I didn't see a place for pre-approval cards like we used to have for BB&T:-(   You have to cold app the new Truist cards

Important, 10%, 20% and 50% rewards bonuses based on relationship. I can't find that data on the mobile website, but if it's the same as SunTrust, 10% is for having an open account of any kind, 25% is for 25k in accounts, and 50% is for 100k in accounts. This makes these cards much more interesting.

 

The secured card has higher rewards than any secured card I've ever seen, up to 4.5% cash back on gas, albeit with a $19 AF.

Welp, I'm waiting for my newly approved BB&T "Bright" card to arrive by mail and am now wondering if it will have "Truist"    or "BB&T" name/colors initially ?


Keep us updated on that. It will be interesting to see how they'll handle new apps.

Truist CC Launch

It looks like Truist has launches their new suite of credits cards. I havent seen anyone here mention that. Could have missed it tho. 

 

The most interesting card for me is the "Enjoy Travel" that gives you an $85 TSA/ Global Entry credit for no annual fee, which idk any other card with No AF that offers that.

 

It looks like all cards will get a 25%/50%/75% bonus redemption rate based on relationship tier. 

 

Their Enjoy Cash will be same 3,2,1% as BB&T Spectrum Cash but you can also choose a flat 1.5% at time of application. Apparently no changing it once you apply. Meh. 

 

Launching a premium travel ""Enjoy Beyond" CC. 195$ AF, 30k SUB, $100 annual credit for ground transport, streaming services and ticket agencies. $100 credit every 4 year for TSA/GE

Oh I thought they would change cards over. I wonder if that will be an option as from what it appears the new cards they offer are a upgrade over their former versions.

Card came today it's in the old BB&T livery. Going to activate it in a few minutes but the bb&t/U Page is now truist, so we will see how this goes (being able to activate online).

Out of curiosity, what shows when you go down the •••more button at the bottom of the page on the mobile app and then select card controls. 

This is what mine shows, even though I still actually have the red BB&T card. 4F025E07-BDF4-4B38-9484-EA135F78D146.png

Re: Bye Bye BB&T! Hello Truist. New Card Offerings What does everyone think?

First, I want to thank the community here.  I've read through many articles over the past few years, but not commented much.  I've been fortunate to follow the guidance posted here to go from not having/using any credit cards to a Capital One Platinum card, to having a nice wallet full of premium travel cards and a few specific cash back options.

 

Now, onto these cards.  I'm pretty sure the non-travel BB&T cards had a foreign transaction fee.  I noticed none of these new ones list a FX fee.

 

Finally, I was waiting for the transition to decide on switching my banking.  The Truist Dimensions checking works for me, so I signed up.  I figure, while I was there, I'd go ahead and apply for the Enjoy Beyond.  I got the "we'll email you in 2 days."  With the bank holiday yesterday, I got the email today that I was approved!  $6500 limit.  I'll report more when I get the card.
