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…

How We Got Free DIRECTV and WiFi on United

This morning I tweeted out my shock and excitement that my United operated flight had not just DIRECTV, but also WiFi.  Having both options is a first for me on United since that airline has lagged behind the pack when it comes to inflight internet, especially on their Boeing aircraft.  The real kicker was that both the TV and the internet worked.  I’m either going to win big in Vegas this weekend with all this luck, or I just used…

Another Rewards Card Cans Foreign Transaction Fees + 3,500 Bonus Points!

Foreign transaction fees were once very common among rewards credit cards, which was kind of unfortunate especially in the realm of travel rewards credit cards since those cardholders (unsurprisingly) travel outside the United States with some regularity!  In recent years more and more credit cards have eliminated foreign transaction fees, which is great so that you aren’t hit with an extra 3% or so for each transaction that was processed with a foreign currency.  Canada tripped me up more than…

Final Total for FlexPerks Sign-Up Bonus Tied to Olympic Medal Wins!

The Olympics are over so that means we have a final total for the limited time sign-up bonus for the US Bank FlexPerks Travel Rewards Visa!  As a reminder, in addition to the standard sign-up bonus of 20,000 FlexPoints that you get after spending $3,500 in the first four months, you also get bonus points based on the number of medals that Team USA won at the Olympics in Sochi.  The additional bonus was 500 points per gold, 250 per…

More Olympics Medals for US = Better US Bank FlexPerks Sign-up Bonus!

Even if you couldn’t normally care less about the 2014 Olympic Winter Games, you should care how many medals the United States wins as more Olympic medals means a better US Bank FlexPerks sign-up bonus!  I got this card during a similar promotion after the 2012 Olympics, and scored a sign-up bonus of 33,150 points, which was worth over $600 toward airline tickets.  The sign-up bonus hasn’t been that high since then, but now there is a chance for a…

US Bank FlexPerks Card Promos Keep Coming!

The US Bank FlexPerks Travel Rewards Visa Signature is the card that keeps on rolling out some pretty decent promos in the last few months!  First, there was a 3,500 point bonus for spending $50 at Neiman Marcus, then I was targeted for another 3,500 bonus points by spending $750 on the card in September and October, and now my account has yet another promo for 2,000 bonus points if I spend $1,250 on the card from November 1–December 31,…

FlexPerks Visa Signature Increases Sign-up Bonus

I just got an email informing me that the sign-up bonus on the US Bank FlexPerks Travel Rewards Visa Signature has increased to 20,000 FlexPoints after the first $3,500 in spending in the first 150 days (which is roughly 5 months).  The previous sign-up bonus had a 17,500 point bonus after $2,500 in spending.  This clearly isn’t the largest sign-up bonus out there, but it is worth more than it sounds like at first glance. This sign-up bonus of 20,000…

Earn 3,500 Bonus FlexPerks Points WIth Promo

In my family, the US Bank FlexPerks Travel Rewards Visa Signature is the little card that keeps on giving.  We got it during a pretty good limited time promo last year when the number of sign-up bonus points was tied to the number of medals the US won at the 2012 Olympics.  The standard bonus that is available right now is 17,500 FlexPoints after you spend $2,500 in net purchases on your card.  If you hit the spending requirement, that…

Update on 3,500 FlexPerks Neiman Marcus Promo

I know many of us (myself included) participated in the recent FlexPerks promo that awarded 3,500 FlexPerks (worth up to $70 toward airfare) after spending $50 on your U.S. Bank FlexPerks Visa at Neiman Marcus on by May 19th.  I also know that many of us (again myself included) can be procrastinators that wait until the end of the promo to act.  In this case that meant that purchases made toward the end of the promo actually didn’t ship and/or…
