While the card comes with a pricey $400/ year annual fee, its offset by a $325 annual credit good on travel and dining purchases. The credit essentially makes the card $75 per year and well worth holding onto.
US Bank sent out an offer with a very easy way to earn 1,000 points.
To earn the bonus, all you have to do is “set up automatic monthly phone bill payments with your US Bank Altitude Reserve” card. Simple enough if you ask me!
To earn the bonus, new auto-payments (recurring) have to be set up by August 31, 2021.
- Points award will be applied to your account 2-3 billing cycles after the end of the promotion period
- Your account must remain open, have available credit, and be current (no minimum payment past due) to qualify
- This oﬀer may not apply if your credit card has changed to a diﬀerent card within the last 12 weeks or changes before the points award is applied
It doesn’t state how long you need to keep your card enrolled in auto-pay but I guess you can switch it to another card once the 1,000 points bonus posts.
Will you switch your mobile phone bill to auto-pay with the Altitude Reserve? I am not sure if I will since I’m already earning 5X points with my Chase Ink card.
