The U.S. Bank Business Cash Rewards World Elite™ MasterCard® is now offering a heftier sign-up bonus.

The updated offer is as follows: Earn a new cardmember bonus of $500 after you spend $4,500 in eligible net purchases on your card within the first 150 days of account opening.

The previous bonus offered $200 after you spent $1,000 in eligible net purchases within the first 90 days of account opening.

The card's $0* annual fee and incentives will remain the same. Cardholders can expect:

  • Rewards: Earn 3% cash back on eligible gas station, office supply store and cell phone/service provider net purchases; and 1% cash back on all other qualifying purchases.

  • An annual cash rewards bonus: On your anniversary, get a bonus of 25% of the cash back you earned in the previous year (up to $250).

  • An introductory APR offer: 0% Intro APR on purchases and balance transfers for the first 15 billing cycles, and then the ongoing APR of 11.99% - 22.99% Variable APR.

The U.S. Bank Business Leverage® Visa Signature® Card has also changed its sign-up bonus, which the issuer now phrases this way: Earn 75,000 points worth $750 cash back. Just spend $7,500 in eligible net purchases on the Account Owner's Card within the first four months of account opening.

Previously, the card let you earn up to 100,000 bonus points in the first 365 days of account opening with an additional point per dollar on all eligible net purchases. Points are generally worth 1 cent each, so while that was a higher potential bonus ($1,000), you had to spend $100,000 in the first year to get the full amount. For many business owners, the new offer will be easier to snag, given the much lower required spending threshold.

All other features on this card remain the same, including its $0 intro for the first year, then $95 annual fee.
