Big Changes Coming to FlexPerks Points and Travel Redemptions

For the last few years a potentially valuable but somewhat under-the-radar credit card rewards program has been the US Bank FlexPerks program. Via this program and the US Bank FlexPerks Travel Rewards Visa Signature Card you have been able to get as high as 2 cents in value for points redeemed for flights. Not only that, but the FlexPerks Travel Rewards Visa Signature awards as many as 2x – 3x points per dollar in some bonus categories making it easier to rack up…

Earn More Bonus Points With Team USA Medal Wins!

It’s rare that a good credit card sign-up bonus takes four years to return, but such is the case with the US Bank FlexPerks Travel Rewards Visa. They have just brought back their sign-up bonus promo where the number of bonus points is tied to the number of medals the US wins at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games! They did this two years ago as well at the 2014 Winter Olympics, but the US doesn’t typically win as many medals…

The new rewards redemption option will allow you to get texts to your phone to redeem points for purchases ‘instantly’. I prefer to use my FlexPoints…

How to Get Free GoGo Inflight WiFi Passes

Rewards credit cards often can do much more for you than just earn you miles and points.  They can protect your purchases, your travel plans, and make your travel experience easier and more affordable.  Yesterday I saw a tweet from Rene’s Points about how the US Bank FlexPerks card now provides twelve annual GoGo Inflight WiFi passes!  That is pretty huge since inflight GoGo can go for $5 for one hour of access or $16 for the full day of…

How I Got a Free Club Carlson Night

For years my favorite rewards credit card benefit was from the Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature® Card as it awarded the “last award night free” on points reservations.  This means if you paid points for one night you could get the second night free – it essentially doubled the value of your points if you could manage to do two nights stays.  However, on June 1st that benefit not only ended, but around the same time the Club Carlson…

Why We Went Trash Diving Today

Over the last couple of days I have seen multiple reports of Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature® Card holders getting a letter in the mail informing them that they will receive an e-certificate for a free night at any Carlson Rezidor hotel as a token of appreciation for being a Club Carlson cardholder.  As you probably remember, the popular “last award night free” benefit of being a Club Carlson cardholder was cut back on June 1st, so I’m guessing…

The Four Things to Know About Club Carlson Card Changes

This morning I posted about big changes coming to the Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature® Card and the “last award night free” benefit effective June 1st, but as with any unexpected change there were some unanswered questions.  Now most of those questions have answers, and there is also a little bit of good news to share.  Here are the four things you need to know about the coming changes to my favorite co-branded rewards card perk. 1.  The changes kick…

Get 500 Free and Easy FlexPerks Points!

The U.S. Bank FlexPerks® Travel Rewards Visa Signature® card seems to offer more easy bonus points than any other rewards credit card that I have, which is ultimately what has kept it in my wallet this long.  They are now at it again offering 500 free bonus Flexperks points to many (all?) cardholders just for watching a quick video on FamDoo, a point based family allowance program that I wrote about before here. The value of 500 FlexPerks points is…

Earn 1,000 Free Bonus FlexPerks Points

If you have a U.S. Bank FlexPerks® Travel Rewards Visa Signature®, you can potentially earn 1,000 bonus FlexPerks points from US Bank if you enroll your FlexPerks Visa card in Visa Checkout between October 31 – November 30, 2014.  This doesn’t appear to be a targeted promo, but it is always possible that some accounts are not eligible. The 1,000 bonus FlexPerks points are worth up to $20 toward airfare, so it might be worth a shot to participate in…

Earn 2,000 Bonus FlexPerks Points Toward Airfare!

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…
