- U.S. Bank is offering some cardholders targeted spending bonuses: Spend $xx amount [insert amount like $350, $2,900, $4,400, $6,200, whatever] and all spend beyond that will get an 20% bonus points per dollar spent.
The Fine Print

- Must enroll in this promotion by March 31st, 2019
We just posted the same deal for the Fidelity card. Looks like this is being offered on other U.S. bank cards as well, it’s not entirely clear if the 20% bonus applies to just the base rate or if it will apply to things like the 5% categories on the Cash+ card. Not sure if these are annoying to get to actually post like the Fidelity card deals or not.
Deal is worse than normal, normally you earn an extra point per $1 spent after meeting the spend requirement. Whereas this time you earn an extra 20% bonus (or 0.4 points). Readers usually report getting the actual bonus is very slow or doesn’t happen at all with manual intervention so need to add that level of hassle to deciding if it’s worth it, personally I just pass on these deals now.
