There’s a new credit card out this week, the US Bank Altitude Reserve card. The card has a 50,000 point sign up bonus worth $750 in travel and earns 3x on mobile wallet purchases (ApplePay, Samsung Pay, Android Pay, etc).
The new Altitude Reserve card from US Bank is available for current US Bank customers. Current customers include credit card accounts; we have a US Bank Cash+ and US Bank FlexPerks card, hopefully you do too!
It’s our Free Money Friday offer.

Redeeming Points. You can redeem the 50,000 points for $750 in travel: airfare, hotels, or car rentals.
Travel Credit Once Per Year. You’ll get a $325 travel credit per year. Note this is per cardmember year, not like other cards that have a travel credit each calendar year.
