As a matter of fact I own this credit card and I believe that this is one of the most underrated 5% cash back credit cards out there. So that’s we’re going to talk about in this particular video the US bank cast plus credit card. But before we get started I have a quick message.

Okay so u.s. bank actually has quite a bit of credit cards from which to choose. If you’re interested in getting a credit card from u.s. bank I would encourage you to go to the website and fill out the pre-qualification specification and see if your pre-qualified to get a credit card from us bank.
That’s what I did before I applied for the us bank cash plus credit card. And I would advise you to do the same thing because you don’t just want to submit an application if there’s a pre-qualification that you can fill that out and if you’re pre-qualified you can know and if you’re not then you may you don’t want to reconsider applying for a credit card from u.s. bank. Okay so I actually did an application process for this particular credit card the u.s. bank cash plus card and I’ll go ahead and link it at the top right of this video so you can check that out if you’d like. However US Bank has a reputation of being a hard credit card to get. So in case you apply for the card and you don’t get approved for it they do have a reconsideration line that I would encourage you to call. They’re pretty helpful at least that’s what I’ve experienced before I applied for the card I called and spoke with them and I also was thinking about getting a secured card with US bank because I didn’t want to be rejected.
And they’re the ones that told me hey you can go ahead and fill out the pre-qualification and see if you’re qualified to get a credit card and kind of work from there. And they were like well if you don’t get the card definitely give us a call and we’ll see what we can do as far as working with you to get you approved for a US bank credit card. Okay so there are three reasons why I was drawn to the us bank cash plus credit card. The first reason that I was drawn to the credit card is the fact that there is no annual fee and I’m in love with credit cards that have no annual fee so that was the very first reason.
The second reason I was drawn to the us bank cash plus credit card was the fact that it was easy to meet the minimum spend which is $500 in order to get 150 dollars cash back. That’s super easy to do and the third and final reason why I was attracted to the US bank cash plus credit card was the fact that they have 5% cash back. But you’re actually able to choose two categories where you’re able to get 5% cash back and one category where you’re able to get 2% cash back and then of course you get 1% on everything else. So for me personally I chose to get 5% cash back on utilities and my cell phone. And then I chose to get 2% cash back on groceries or gas I’m not sure which one it is I have so many credit cards but I don’t really worry about the 2% aspect of this particular credit card.
I totally utilize this credit card the us cash plus credit card to get 5% back on like I said my utilities and my cell phone bill. So that’s actually cool that’s unlike a lot of 5% cash back credit cards that that’s out there that give you the ability this one does to give you the ability to choose the categories that you’d like to get 5% cash back. And there are quite a bit of categories from which to choose. So once again that’s another thing that attracted me to apply for the US bank cash plus credit card was the fact that I was able to choose two categories that I can get 5% cash back on in one category where I can get 2% cash back on. So that’s why I applied for this particular credit card from us bank.
