Mysterious $25 Cash BONUS OFFER Posted to My US Bank Cash Plus Credit Card

Good evening everyone.  A few days ago, my US Bank Cash Plus Credit Card statement closed and as I was looking through my statement, I noticed a $25 cash bonus listed in the rewards section.  Similar to finding money in your back pocket, I was immediately excited.  Where did this $25 come from?  Why was it given to me?  I tried to rack my brain, but couldn’t remember.

4 Flavors of Club Carlson Credit Cards (High, Medium, Low & Biz)

Good morning everyone, happy Friday!  A few days ago, I wrote How to Redeem your Club Carlson Domestic Free Night Certificate ($10,000 Yearly Spend Required). While working on that post, I was reminded that there are not 2, not 3, but 4 US Bank Club Carlson credit cards. I only have the US Bank Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature Credit Card and the US Bank Club Carlson Business Rewards Visa Signature Credit Card (the 2 best US Bank Club Carlson credit cards, in my opinion), but I wanted to take a closer look at the other 2 US Bank Club Carlson credit cards to see if there was any reason to consider product changing to those credit cards.  To learn more about all of the US Bank Club Carlson credit cards, click here.

How to Redeem your Club Carlson Domestic Free Night Certificate ($10,000 Yearly Spend Required)

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  Yesterday, I redeemed my Club Carlson domestic free night certificate and wanted to share the process with you. A few years ago, I wrote How to Book your Club Carlson Worldwide Free Night Certificate, but I did not have the opportunity to earn and redeem a domestic free night certificate until just recently.  Fun fact, there are 4 different Club Carlson credit cards currently available, all with different perks, elite status, free anniversary points, and annual fees.  But the one thing that is the same on all the credit cards is the ability to earn a free night certificate valid at any domestic Club Carlson property after spending $10,000 or more on the Club Carlson credit card during your card member year.  For the record, I currently have the US Bank Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature Credit Card and the US Bank Club Carlson Business Rewards Visa Signature Credit Card.

Targeted Spending Offers on US Bank Club Carlson Business & Cash Plus Credit Cards

Good morning everyone, happy Friday!  By the time you read this post, I will be on my way to Denver for a short weekend trip (with a Sunday travel meetup in Denver).  My love affair with US Bank continues as they continue to shower me in gifts (in the form of targeted spending offers) on my US Bank Club Carlson Business Credit Card and US Bank Cash Plus Credit Card.  Let’s go through the offers and see if there are any winners.

First up, I have a targeted spending offer on my US Bank Club Carlson Business Credit Card.  After spending $2,000 on the credit card, I will earn an extra 5 Club Carlson Points per dollar, up to 5,000 bonus Club Carlson Points.  To maximize the offer, I would need to spend exactly $3,000.  I would receive $3,000 x 5 points per dollar = 15,000 Club Carlson Points + 5,000 bonus Club Carlson Points = 20,000 Club Carlson Points.  20,000 Club Carlson Points is worth ~$100 (each Club Carlson Point is worth 0.5 cents to me), so $100 / $3,000 = 3.33% return.  Not bad, but I really don’t want any more Club Carlson Points, so I will pass on this offer.
