Things to Know about U.S. Bank Cards:
US Bank isn’t necessarily known for their credit card sign-up bonuses, but when it comes to their credit card perks and offers, they may be worth taking a look at. Before checking out U.S. Banks credit cards, I definitely recommend you give this Things to Know list a run-down!
- Minimum spending requirement starts as soon as your card is approved. && Only spending on primary card counts for minimum spending requirements
- Before applying for any US Bank credit cards, I recommend that you freeze your IDA (Safestream) & ARS credit reports. You will need to have these unfrozen when you sign up for a US Bank checking account. You don’t need to really freeze when applying in-branch.
- You can view your pre-approved offers online.
- It’s not possible to change your product brands, but if you want a downgrade to a US Bank branded card, then the Cash+ card is a great options with the 5% your choice category.
- They do match-ups when it comes to increases in sign-up bonuses.
- There is no hard limit to the amount of US Bank credit cards you can hold. But keep in mind that the more cards you have with them, the more difficult it is to get approved.
- Credit utilization is based on what is listed on the first of each month.
- US Bank merges multiple inquiries into a single hard pull within the same day.
- Sometimes, you’ll get a pull from a different credit report if you have the one they want to use but it’s frozen. You can’t give them a PIN to access a frozen report.
- If you are denied for a credit card with US Bank, try calling their reconsideration department.
- When it comes to credit limits, for an increases they’ll run them as a soft pull if under $1,500 and a hard pull if over $1,500.
- For reallocation, they do a soft pull but you need to get a financial manager to approve it.
- When claiming retention, Annual fee on FlexPerks cards will usually be waived. They give you points to balance the annual fee. You could pay the fee in cash and use the points to get travel redemption options.
- US Bank says that they don’t report business credit cards to the personal credit bureaus which is useful for keeping your credit report cleaner.
- If you cancel your card within 30 days of the annual fee posting, they’ll refund it for you. Can be useful if you forget to cancel the card before the annual fee hits.
- You can change your statement closing date.
- US Bank will waive fees on their checking if you have a credit card from them. Personal credit cards will waive the fees on personal accounts and business credit cards will waive the fee on business accounts.
