US Bank Reconsideration Line: 800-947-1444
Use this phone number to check your application status as well. US Bank does not send you an approval/denial email. Many data points show 8-10 business days for decision is normal. Add another 2-3 weeks after that to receive physical card.

U.S. Bank Fraud Department - 800-260-8469. This is the number to call if your card starts getting declined when you try to make a purchase.

Why is the balance due on my business card always shown as $0?
There are TWO account numbers linked to your business card: The card itself, which shows up in the same website account as any personal cards you may have. This will always show a $0 balance due.

There is a SECOND account - labeled the "Central Bill Account" - with its own account number. You must set up a separate website account with its own username and password to access the Central Bill Account. This is the account that will actually show the balance due and let you schedule a payment. Somewhere in the paperwork you received with the card or the first paper invoice, you should be able to find the Central Bill Account's number.

Setting up separate website account for business card:

These are the instructions that US Bank emailed me:

Angry I don't feel as if I've been upgraded.... US Bank marketing deception




So the Club Carlson / Radisson Rewards cards are dead....and here's the latest email I've gotten from US Bank about the substitute card. It's not an upgrade at all.

I rather liked the Radisson cards.

US Banks' contract with Radisson ended. Have you cancelled the replacement card?

It's not U.S. Bank's fault, but it still isn't an upgrade. Converting a specific hotel rewards card with specific benefits into a generic cash-back-masquerading-as-travel-rewards card is a customer-hostile decision. It says, "You are a number to us, and we think you're too stupid to realize what we just did." I'm not saying they had a better option, but all of their marketing is just putting lipstick on a pig.

A more customer-friendly change would have been to leave the US Bank Radisson cards alone until the Radisson-Choice merger completes and then sell these accounts to Barclays to be converted to Choice Privileges credit cards (assuming Radisson Rewards Americas is merged into Choice Privileges.)

It seems that US Bank is out of the affinity business. My remaining US Bank card, REI, is being converted to a Capital One REI card next month.

Ya, kind of like the post UA / CO merger: "There will be changes, and we thing you are going to like them."

NOT!

Can we convert the Go card(useless to me) to Cash plus card? I never had the Cash Plus card and the 5% rotating categories will be really useful.

Update: Chatted with support and they changed the account to Cash+ Visa signature, account number will change.

A new card #. Is that treated like a new account opening then on one's credit report?

It shouldn't, it should be backdated to the original card's opening date on the credit report.

That's what should happen at every bank when you change account numbers on an existing card account.

The problem is that the Radisson Americas purchase by Choice Hotels (a) had not been announced yet when US Bank ended its contract with Radisson cards, and (b) hasn't been approved by regulators yet, so it's not yet a certainty.

I'm pretty sure that a bank is legally not allowed to keep things going on a card for which their contract has ended.

In any case, them not doing that means that you can get a signup bonus on a Choice Hotels card from Barclays if you don't already have one. You wouldn't qualify for that if they had been able to convert it.
