The US Bank Cash+ card has rotating bonus categories each quarter. You can choose two categories from a large list to earn 5% cash back and from a list of three categories to earn 2% cash back. All other purchases will earn 1% cash back. The nice part about it is that you get to select the categories that will help you most! You may now make your selections for the second quarter of 2017 by visiting the selection site. Here are the categories for the second quarter of 2017:
As a reminder, effective today, February 17, 2017, you can no longer earn 5% cash back for charity contributions if that was one of the categories you selected for the first quarter. As I mentioned last month, this is the main reason I got this card and I’m really disappointed US Bank is dropping this category. I’ll keep the card because it’s free and because I can get 5% back for my gym membership but otherwise I’d let it go. Hopefully they’ll change their mind at some point in the future.
