The ability to choose your own bonus categories based on your spending makes the card a competitive option for rewards maximizers. Other 5% cash-back options typically feature quarterly categories that are chosen by the issuer. But with the U.S. Bank Cash+™ Visa Signature® Card – NerdWallet Exclusive Offer, cardholders can choose two 5% cash-back categories each quarter, out of a list of 12 options. Additionally, also every quarter, cardholders will be able to select a 2% cash-back category from a list of three choices.

Note that you’ll have to opt into bonus categories online each quarter to earn the card’s 5% and 2% rates.
