US Bank has released a new rewards credit card, the Altitude® Connect Visa Signature® Card, which gives cardholders a welcome bonus of 50,000 points ($500), provided that they spend $3,000 on eligible purchases within 120 days upon account opening.

Most credit cards provide a shorter time frame to meet the spending threshold required for the bonus. The US Bank Altitude® Connect Visa Signature® Card allows for an additional month. Bonus points don’t have to be claimed right away since they will not expire. Cardholders only have to keep their account open and in good standing.

The number of points awarded depends on what users are spending on. For spending on traveling and at gas stations, cardholders earn four times more than on other eligible purchases and two times more on dining, streaming services, grocery stores, and delivery. US bank has a convenient calculator that will help you assess how many points you can earn in a month on average.

US Bank waives the annual fee for the first year, while a $95 fee applies for each subsequent year. However, there are additional perks available for US Bank customers. Netflix and Spotify users can look forward to a $30 credit for an annual streaming service subscription. Travelers will appreciate that the card includes a $100 reimbursement for TSA PreCheck® or Global Entry® application fee once in four years. Additionally, there are no foreign transaction fees for purchases made outside of the US. If their phone gets damaged or stolen, cardholders are entitled to up to $600 reimbursement for cell phone protection. Contactless payments are also available.

Like any other Visa card, the US Bank Altitude® Connect Visa Signature® Card includes signature Visa benefits common for credit cards for users with a fair credit score.
