A card I don’t use very often, but still keep around, is the U.S. Bank FlexPerks® Travel Rewards Visa Signature® card. It has helped me purchase a few airline tickets with points, and has some okay bonus categories of 2x points on gas, groceries, or airfare (whichever you spend the most in that month), 2x on cell phone expenses, and 3x on charity expenses. You can redeem 20,000 points for an airline ticket that is selling for up to $400. It isn’t the most straight-forward rewards program out there, but it has worked for me from time to time.
I don’t use it enough in my everyday life to rack up many points (though some do quite well with this card and Kiva.org), but when promos come around my points balance shoots up quickly. I am finishing up a promo to earn 3,500 bonus points and now another bonus worth 2,000 bonus points for holiday spending has been announced.
This promo is likely not valid on all accounts and will likely vary somewhat from account to account, but it is going to help some of you and is worth a check in the promos section of your FlexPerks account.
While I was reading about this offer in their promos section, I saw a couple of other promotions available on my account that I wanted to mention here. Again, these many be somewhat different from account to account.
Enroll in Visa Checkout between August 28 and November 30, 2014, and you’ll receive 1,000 bonus FlexPoints. Sign up today and shop online worry-free with Visa Checkout and your FlexPerks Visa card.
FlexPoints are earned automatically when you use your FlexPerks Travel Rewards Visa Signature® card to book a stay of two or more nights at participating Hilton’s Waldorf Astoria and Conrad properties between October 1, 2014, and December 31, 2014. Stay must be completed by April 30, 2015. One award per cardmember. Qualifying stays are determined by total spend at checkout: $400 for Conrad and $500 for Waldorf Astoria, paid with a registered FlexPerks Visa Signature card.
I probably won’t make use of all of those promos, but I should be able to find a way to earn the 2,000 bonus FlexPerks via $1,250 in spending later this year.
Do you have any good promos in your FlexPerks account?
