Good afternoon everyone, I hope you had a great Father’s Day Weekend. 2 months ago, US Bank sent out letters to cardholders who had personal and business Radisson Rewards credit cards alerting them that their credit cards were going to be changing in June. A few days ago, we learned that Choice Hotels will acquire Radisson Americas for $675 million, which explains why US Bank is changing the credit cards.
My US Bank Radisson Rewards Premier Credit Card became the US Bank Altitude Go Credit Card and my US Bank Radisson Rewards Business Credit Card became the US Bank Triple Cash Rewards Business Credit Card. The new credit cards arrived over the weekend, so I wanted to share the card art, welcome letters, brochures, and activation process for both credit cards. First, a moment of silence for the retired personal and business Radisson Rewards credit cards…
Here is the front and back of the US Bank Altitude Go. I’m not a fan of the vertical and horizontal text on the front of the card, but the rest of the card is very simple and clean.
Here is the welcome letter that highlights the 4x and 2x categories and the $15 streaming service credit.
This credit card has no annual fee and no foreign transaction fees, which is great for a no annual fee credit card.
Here is the brochure that explains the bonus categories and $15 streaming credit.
Up next, here is the front and back of the US Bank Business Triple Cash Rewards. Did I mention that I’m not a fan of the vertical and horizontal text on the front of the card? The back of the card seems like it is missing some information, but it is very simple and clean.
Fun fact, it looks like US Bank replaced the MasterCard version (on the right), with the new Visa version (on the left). As far as I can tell, the earning categories and redemption options are the same. Having both a Visa and MasterCard could come in handy, so I plan to keep both credit cards open.
Here is the welcome letter. The thing that caught my attention was the “Destroy your Radisson Rewards Visa Business Card.” The language seemed harsh to me, I’m not sure why.
This credit card has no annual fee, but does charge a 2-3% foreign transaction fee.
Here is the brochure that explains the 3% bonus categories and the $100 statement credit for certain software transactions.
Activating both of the new credit cards was easy on the US Bank activation website.
I then signed into my US Bank online account and saw the old credit card names were still listed.
Clicking on the old Radisson Rewards credit card, I then clicked the Edit Account Nickname button and renamed the card to Altitude Go. The new card art shows up on the Card Number tab.
Clicking on the old Radisson Rewards Business credit card, I then clicked the Edit Account Nickname button and renamed the card to Biz Triple Cash. The new card art shows a generic card and sometimes shows the old Radisson Rewards Business card art.
Last but not least, US Bank stated in their previous letters that they would prorate the annual fee refunds for both credit cards. I haven’t seen those prorated annual fee refunds yet, but they should post soon. With that in mind, I would not recommend product changing or closing either of these credit cards until you receive your prorated annual fee refund first. If you have any questions about either of the US Bank Altitude Go Credit Card or US Bank Triple Cash Rewards Business Credit Card, please leave a comment below. Have a great day everyone!
