After months of anticipation, the new U.S. Bank Altitude Go Visa Signature Card has made its debut and is now available for new applicants. The card is a no-annual-fee rewards card that offers impressive points potential on the types of everyday purchases Americans regularly make.
The new U.S. Bank Altitude Cards were rumored as far back as February, with the bank also revealing further details in March. The two new U.S. Bank Altitude Cards are the Go and the Altitude Connect, both of which replace the former FlexPerks credit cards. The card joins the Altitude Reserve Visa Infinite, U.S. Bank’s ultra-premium travel card.
All U.S. Bank rewards cards previously earned points through the FlexPerks program. These cards included the FlexPerks Select+ American Express, the FlexPerks Travel Rewards Visa, and FlexPerks Gold American Express – with the latter two having been discontinued. The partnership between the financial institution and the FlexPerks program ended in early March, meaning the bank needed new rewards cards to fill the void. Enter the Go, the first of these substitutes.
Features of the U.S. Bank Altitude Go Visa Signature Card
The Altitude Go features impressive stats – especially since it charges no annual fee. The card earns 4X points on dining (including takeout and delivery); 2X points on gas, groceries, and streaming services; and also 1X on everything else.
The card further benefits from 0% intro APR on purchases and balance transfers for 12 months and 20,000 bonus points after spending $1,000 on purchases in the first 90 days of opening an account. Other features include a statement credit for streaming service purchases each year and no foreign transaction fees.
The impressive features of the Altitude Go make it a direct competitor for several cards, with the most notable example being the Savor from Capital One. Since that card has an annual fee of $95, however, the Go is likely the more enticing option.
