Program Rules

U.S. Bank Cash+ Program

Rewards Program

Participation in the Rewards Program (“Program”) is restricted to U.S. residents who are 18 or more years old (“Cardmember”, “you”, and “your”) in whose name U.S. Bank National Association (“U.S. Bank”, “we”, “us” and “our”) maintains a Credit Card Account (an “Account”). Subject to the Program rules, you may redeem Rebates earned in the Program for cash reward in the form of a statement credit to your Account, a deposit into a U.S. Bank Savings, Checking or Money Market account or for a rewards card. Program administrative services are provided by third party vendors.

Program Participation

To participate in the Program, your Account must be open and in good standing under the terms of your Cardmember Agreement. We may alter, change, or terminate the Program at any time without advance notice. We may also disqualify Cardmembers who have violated any of these terms and conditions or the terms of their Cardmember Agreement with us. Determination and payment of tax liability is the sole responsibility of the Cardmember. The Program is void where prohibited by federal, state, or local law.

Earning Cash Rewards

You may only earn Rebates (defined below) for Net Purchases on your Account. "Net Purchases" are determined by totaling all new Purchases charged to the Account during a billing cycle, then subtracting credits posted to the Account during the same billing cycle for returns, chargebacks and/or other adjustments. Rebates are not earned for Advances (including wire transfers, travelers checks, money orders, foreign cash transactions, betting transactions, lottery tickets and ATM disbursements), Convenience Checks, Balance Transfers, and Fees, credit insurance charges, transactions to fund certain prepaid card products, U.S. Mint purchases, or transactions to purchase cash convertible items.

Rebates include 1% Rebates, 2% Rebates and 5% Rebates (collectively, "Rebates"). "1% Rebates" are those Rebates for which you will earn 1% of Net Purchases. "2% Rebates" are those Rebates for which you will earn an additional 1%, for a total of 2%, of Net Purchases as described below. "5% Rebates" are those Rebates for which you will earn an additional 4%, for a total of 5%, of Net Purchases as described below.

  1. (1) 2% Rebates are those Rebates for which you will earn 2% of Net Purchases made in 1 designated Purchase Category (as defined below). You must select which Purchase Category will apply for your 2% Rebates. If you do not make the designation you will earn the 1% Rebate in that Purchase Category. You must choose your designated Purchase Categories on a calendar quarterly basis, as described below.

  2. (2) 5% Rebates are those Rebates for which you will earn 5% of Net Purchases made in 2 designated Purchase Categories. You must choose your designated Purchase Categories on a calendar quarterly basis, as described below. You must select which 2 Purchase Categories will apply for your 5% Rebates. If you do not make the designations, you will earn the 1% Rebate in those Purchase Categories. During any calendar quarter in which you exceed $2,000 in Net Purchases in your combined two 5% Purchase Categories, you will earn the 1% Rebate for any additional Net Purchases in your 5% Purchase Categories during that quarter.

You must choose your designated Purchase Categories on a calendar quarterly basis online at usbank.com/cashplus. Merchants who accept Visa/Mastercard credit cards are assigned a merchant code based on the kinds of products and services they sell. To offer 2% and 5% Rebates based on purchase type (for example 5% cash back for Department Store purchases), we group similar merchant category codes into purchase categories (the “Purchase Categories”). Net Purchases which fall into the eligible Purchase Category will receive the stated Rebate. We make every effort to include all relevant merchant category codes in its listed Purchase Categories. However, even though a merchant or the items that it sells may appear to fit within a Purchase Category, the merchant may not use the merchant code that will fall within that Purchase Category. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that a Net Purchase will qualify for 2% or 5% Rebates as any purchase where a merchant uses a category code outside of the eligible Purchase Category will not qualify for the stated Rebate.

You must register on a calendar quarterly basis online at usbank.com/cashplus to be eligible to earn 2% Rebates and 5% Rebates. You will be able to choose designated Purchase Categories applicable for a calendar quarter's 2% Rebates and 5% Rebates beginning 45 days prior to the start of the upcoming quarter until five days prior the end of the quarter. Same day changes to registered categories are not available. You will begin earning 2% Rebates and 5% Rebates as of the start of the calendar quarter, or the date your registration is effective, whichever is later. Allow up to 3 business days for registration to take effect before you will be eligible to earn 2% Rebates and 5% Rebates. If you do not register for your Cash+ Categories each quarter, all your eligible net purchases will still earn 1% cash back. Cash+ Categories are subject to change quarterly.

We will show on your monthly Account statement the accrued Net Purchases potentially eligible for redemption as Rebates as of the statement billing date. Your 1% Rebates earned will appear on your statement as "Cash Rewards", and the additional rewards you earn for 2% Rebates and 5% Rebates (1% and 4%, respectively, in excess of the 1% Rebate) will appear on your statement as a "Bonus". We reserve the right to adjust or reverse the number of Rebates that were awarded, or Net Purchases potentially eligible for redemption, for unauthorized Purchases.

Rebates may be redeemed as a statement credit, rewards card, or a deposit to a U.S. Bank Savings, Checking or Money Market account. Complete terms and conditions for the Rewards Program, including rules regarding the redemption, expiration, loss or cancellation of Rebates, award thresholds, eligibility, participation, and our right to amend or terminate the Rewards Program, are set forth in our Rewards Program Rules (the "Program Rules") that you can access online in the Rewards Center.

The Account must be open and current to be eligible to earn Rebates. You may not redeem Rebates, and you will immediately lose all of your Rebates, if your Account is closed to future transactions (including, but not limited to, Program misuse, failure to pay, bankruptcy, or death) and as set forth below. Generally, there is no maximum annual cash rebate, but we reserve the right to cap certain 2% Rebates and 5% Rebates, in addition to limits already described in the Program Rules. Rebates are not transferrable and have no cash value until you request and receive a Rebate. Cash Rebates will expire at the end of the calendar month 36 months after the billing cycle in which they were earned.

The Account and these Rebates are provided for personal, family and household use. We reserve the right to disallow or remove Rebates awarded for Net Purchases made for other than personal, family or household use.

We reserve the right to change or cancel the Program at any time, with or without notice to you.

Visa Branded Prepaid Rewards Cards

Cash rewards for Visa-branded rewards cards (“Rewards Cards”) are redeemed when a Rewards Card is requested by Cardmembers.

U.S. Bank National Association will use its best reasonable efforts to issue a Rewards Card within 7-10 business days of your request. Rewards Cards lost in mail will be replaced at no cost to the Cardmember if correct address information is provided at the time of redemption.

Rewards Cards are mailed only to the Cardmember’s billing address. Rewards Cards will be personalized with the Cardmember’s name and cannot be exchanged or refunded. Rewards Cards can be used at any merchant that accepts Visa debit cards.

Cash Rewards as a Statement Credit or Account Deposit

You can choose to redeem rebates for cash rewards in the form of a deposit as a statement credit or to your U.S. Bank Savings, Checking or Money Market account. Cash reward redemptions are deducted from the cash rewards balance when the cash reward redemption is requested by a Cardmember.

Statement credits are issued via a credit to your Account by accessing the Rewards Center at usbank.com. A credit will be applied to your Account within 6-8 weeks. Rebate dollars redeemed for a statement credit will reduce the account balance but will not count toward your minimum payment due.

Account deposit redemptions may be issued via an electronic ACH deposit only to your U.S. Bank Savings, Checking or Money Market accounts. Account deposit redemptions may not be deposited to an international account. Redemptions to a U.S. Bank checking or savings account will be applied within 7 business days of your redemption request.
