U.S. Bank Cash+ Adds TV, Internet, Streaming Services as 5% Category [Replaces Car Rentals]
U.S. Bank Cash+ is notifying customers that beginning Q2 2019, car rentals will be removed as a 5% category to be replaced with TV, Internet, and Streaming Services.
New! TV, Internet and Streaming Services will replace Car Rentals as a new 5% Cash+ Category starting April 1, 2019. This category includes merchants such as Netflix, Comcast, DIRECTV®, Hulu and Apple Music. Registration opens February 15 for the second quarter at usbank.com/cashplus. Remember to register for your 5% and 2% categories to get MORE CASH BACK!
If you have an INK card which earns 5x on some/all of these, this new category won’t be very useful. Otherwise, it could make be helpful for some people. The nice part about the Cash+ card is that they offer the same categories the entire year, so you can set your Cash+ as the default payment method for all internet, tv, and streaming services, and always earn 5% on those. Just be sure to register every 3 months.
The new list of 5% categories will be:
- TV, Internet, and Streaming Services
- Home utilities
- Select clothing stores
- Cell phone providers
- Electronic Stores
- Fast food
- Ground Transportation
- Sporting goods
- Department Stores
- Furniture Stores
- Movie theaters
