The Fine Print

The personal cards and business cards are virtually the same, personal comes with $1,000,000 in travel accident insurance and business comes with $500,000.

    • 2x miles per $1 spent on all Korean Air ticket purchases
    • 1x mile per $1 spent on all purchases
  • Receive 2,000 miles on card renewal
  • Valid until June 30th, 2015
  • No foreign transaction fee (based on credit worthiness)

Our Verdict

I believe that the highest sign up bonus on this card was 40,000. Some people have reported recently being targeted for that 40,000 offer, so make sure to check to see if you have it before considering applying for this offer. The main problem with this offer is that the card is issued by US bank who are notorious for being difficult to get approvals for.

One way to increase your odds is by freezing two reports (from companies you probably haven’t heard of before). Given all the recent negative news from Club Carlson (the devaluation and removal of last night free benefit) a lot of people will be looking for a replacement card. This could be an option, but I think I prefer the U.S Bank Cash+ card personally.

30,000 Korean miles also won’t be able to be redeemed for too much, but keep in mind Chase UR & Diners Club both transfer to Korean. This card only makes sense for the sign up bonus, as the earning rates suck. They also offered this same 30,000 mile sign up bonus last year in April.

I got pre-approved for 40k offer, already have the card. i don’t think i’ll be putting much spend on it after i meet the min… it’s just easier to earn UR points.
but i may sign up for the biz card… do you know how much longer the offer will be around for?

my experience with US bank is that it’s difficult to get the first card approved… but after that they approved me for anything i wanted, with super high credit limits too. i even canceled club carlson personal card very recently and they didn’t care. i’m thinking i’ll cancel club carlson biz card too and get korean instead.

Thanks for the heads up. I’m wondering if US Bank combine the credit pulls if I apply for both personal and business on the same day using two browser method trick?

[…] bonuses of 40,000 miles on this card before (check to see if you’re targeted) and often offer 30,000 miles (15k after first purchase and another 15k after $2,000 in spend). 15,000 miles isn’t really enough to do anything, but you can transfer from SPG, Chase & […]

Thanks for this post. Has anyone had any luck applying for the person and business at the same time? 60K would go allot further than 30K.
