Unboxing my US Bank Altitude Reserve Visa Infinite Credit Card: Card Art, Brochure & Welcome Letter

Good afternoon everyone.  I hope you enjoyed reading my post from this morning: My March Madness App-O-Rama Results: 3 out of 4 Credit Cards Approved.  In that post, I mentioned that I would be doing an unboxing of my new US Bank Altitude Reserve Visa Infinite Credit Card.  This credit card has a sign up bonus of 50,000 FlexPoints (worth $750 in flights) after spending $4,500 in 3 months.  This card has a $400 annual fee, but offers $325 in airline travel credits that mostly offset the annual fee.  There are a few other credit card perks that I will go over in this post.  But first, take a look at how beautiful this credit card is.  The card is a thick metal, similar to the Chase Sapphire Reserve Credit Card.  On the front of the credit card, it only shows your full name.  On the back, it has your full name again along with all the other credit card information.  Let me show you the rest of the items that came with this credit card.

I applied for the US Bank Altitude Reserve Visa Infinite Credit Card on Monday evening, was approved sometime on Tuesday and the package arrived via UPS Next Day Air on Thursday afternoon.  The credit card came in a white, nondescript box with an impressive folio on the inside.

Attached to the lid of the folio, the credit card was mounted and surrounded by soft black foam.  In the bottom of the folio, there was an information booklet, credit card terms, and a welcome letter.

Here are all the items that came in the bottom of the folio.

The large postcard has all the important features of the credit card, including the sign up bonus, the 3x earning on travel and mobile wallet (Apple Pay) purchases, the $325 airline travel credit, and $100 reimbursement for Global Entry / TSA PreCheck.

Here is the welcome letter that shows the credit card annual fee and extra charge for authorized users.

Here are the credit card terms (I didn’t look into these very closely).

Lastly, here is the booklet that explains all the credit card benefits and the sleeve that holds the booklet closed.

I took the booklet apart so I could easily scan all the pages.  You also get a Priority Pass membership and 12 Gogo Wifi passes each cardmember year.

Last but not least, my new US Bank Altitude Reserve Visa Infinite Credit Card automatically showed up in my US Bank online account.  I spotted it because it did not have a name I recognized.  Not to worry, it is very each to add a nickname to your US Bank credit cards.  Just click on the card, then click the Add Nickname link, enter a nickname, click the Save button, and you are done.  You will see the new nickname at the top of that page and also back in your main account page.

    Congrats on getting the USB AR card, Grant! You will love having this card. The ongoing 3x earning opportunities on mobile wallet payments are great – especially as we continue to see more places accepting mobile wallet payments here in the US. It has definitely been our go-to card for Euro travel since we got it. The real-time mobile rewards program has worked well for us, too. Note that the 3x travel category isn’t as broad as we thought it would be – doesn’t cover OTAs & tour agencies. Enjoy all your new cards!

    Mind if I ask what your pre-existing relationship was with the bank? I do not have one. Didn’t qualify based on location for checking and closed Radisson 2 years ago.

          I’ve had the US Bank Radisson Rewards Business CC for 3-4 years, before any of those rules were in place. I believe I was instantly approved, but I don’t remember exactly what happened.

    If you haven’t already, be sure to setup your card for real time rewards. Redeeming for travel and earning another 4.5% on the purchase has been incredible.
