US Bank is running an Olympics-related promotion for its FlexPerk Visa credit card. The sign-up promotion is a variable number of bonus points based on how many medals the US Olympics team ends up winning. Since the US Olympics team did great in London, this promotion is a very good deal!
US Bank is giving 500 points for every gold medal, 250 points for every silver medal, and 100 points for every bronze medal. The US won 46 gold, 29 silver, and 29 bronze medals. That’s 33,150 points (read: $600 worth of airfare travel credit) since US Bank needs the redemption to be done in increments of 10,000 points, with a minimum redemption at 20,000 points. The best redemption would be $600.
The additional benefit of using this airfare travel credit is that the ticket purchased is mileage-earning. Earning miles for zero money out-of-pocket is the best kind of travel deal. This is different than mileage bonus sign-ups in that those flights are free but don’t earn miles. If you need paid travel to maintain status, this card will be good vs. just free travel. The team here will apply for this card to offset some of our paid travel for next year to help us maintain elite status.
Details of the offer:
- 33,150 bonus points or $600 worth of free air travel credit
- To receive the bonus points, you need to spend $2,500 within 5 months of approval
- No annual fee for the first year and $49 after
- Must apply by August 31st, 2012
If you are interested in applying for the card, go to the special US Bank FlexPerk site.
Standard disclaimer: We have no affiliate relationships with US Bank and do not make any money from your application. We simply think this is a good sign-up bonus and is a card that we will be applying for.
