US Bank Cash+ Visa – A Great Credit Card for Business Travelers

The US Bank Cash+ Visa is probably the most lucrative credit card product that you haven’t heard about.

The card allows you to earn 5% cash back on three categories of your choice, 2% back on either gas, groceries, or drug stores, and 1% back on everything else. I find this product compelling for two reasons:

  • The amount of cash back you can earn is unlimited
  • The categories on which you can earn 5% cash back are extremely useful for business travelers

Business travelers can very easily have $1500 or more of hotel, rental car, and restaurant expenses per week. If you make these three categories your cash-back categories and charge these expenses to your card, you will net an easy $75 per week.

It gets better. If you redeem your cash back in $100 increments, you will receive a $25 bonus for each $100 redeemed. Oh, and if you have a US Bank Gold or Platinum checking account, there is an additional bonus. Play your cards right 😉 and you can get almost 7% back on most of your business expenses.

The categories available for 5% purchases are the following:

  • Department Stores
  • Restaurants
  • Home Improvement Stores
  • Electronics Stores
  • Airlines
  • Hotels
  • Bill Payment
  • Fast Food
  • Furniture Stores
  • Car Rental
  • Charity
  • Movie Theaters

The only catch is that you need to remember to enroll to earn your 5% cash back quarterly.

For more information, you visit the US Bank Cash+ Website. Unfortunately, you cannot currently apply for this card online; you must apply in-person at a US Bank branch.
