Pros and cons

Pros
  • High rewards rate

  • Bonus categories

  • New cardholder bonus offer

  • No foreign transaction fees

Cons
  • Has annual fee

The U.S. Bank Altitude® Connect Visa Signature® Card is a good option for frequent flyers and road trippers.The card earns 4 points per dollar spent on travel and at gas stations; 2 points per dollar spent at grocery stores, on dining and on eligible streaming services; and 1 point per dollar on all other purchases.

However, unlike comparable cards, it doesn't allow for transferring points for outsized value. And if your spending habits don’t lean heavily toward travel, a different Altitude-branded or cash-back card might be a better option for you.

The U.S. Bank Altitude® Connect Visa Signature® Card has an annual fee of $0 intro for the first year, then $95, but its sign-up bonus and annual streaming credit can make up for the cost to carry the card, over a number of years.
