Edit: a short time after receiving this offer on my Cash+ card, I received the same offer on my Radisson Rewards Visa.
US Bank is back with another limited time promo on their Cash+ card. This one is good through September 30, 2020.
The bonuses are limited by category but can total up to $90 as follows:
- 3% cash back on purchases at Gas Stations (up to $20 statement credit)
- 3% cash back on purchases at Sporting Goods and Bike shops (up to $20 statement credit)
- 5% cash back on Motorhome and RV Rentals (up to $50 statement credit)
This is a nice extra for folks who are hitting the road in an RV for a last summer fling or for those who may not otherwise have gas as a bonus category. While 3% is nice at gas stations, it’s not something I’ll be taking advantage of because the Chase Sapphire Preferred is currently offering 5x points at gas stations. Otherwise I’d be using my Citi Premier card that always earns 3x at gas stations and since each point is worth more that a penny, it makes more sense to earn points in this situation.
To register for this promo, look for for an email in your inbox. You must register by August 31st.
One other thing to note is that each quarter you have the option of selecting sporting goods as a 5% category with the Cash+ card. In reading the fine print it would appear the 3% earned here is in addition to the cash back earned otherwise. So if you selected sporting goods for this quarter you could earn a total of 8% cash back. That’s nice if you have a special purchase in mind.
