They also don't have AUH or DXB. Yet they have Seychelles (SEZ). Was hoping to use points to book AUH-SEZ. What makes it even worse is that they have AUH as an airport when looking up hotels :/

Portal = fail

I was also initially excited about using points to buy air ticket from portal. But after my experience with Merrill+ (dont allow mixed cabin awards e.g., cannot be business class in departing segment, economy in return segment) , Go Far Rewards, and now hearing abt what happen with US Bank's, it is as if they are trying to make it difficult for us to purchase.

Perhaps calling CSR to complain will lead to something else.

None of my Apple Pay transactions denote them being Apple Pay like they do on my Amex cards either. I guess we'll see when the first statements cut!

My first statement actually posted today...not sure why so early. I had 1 Android Pay tx at staples that posted in time. No indication anywhere that it is a mobile wallet payment, however I did receive the bonus points in the statement.

Looks like you can't set the cash advance limit to 0 on this card

Most issuers will only set the CA limit to a minimum of $20 now. Unclear why.

when I called in to customer service, they said the CA limit could not be lowered period.

If if you find a way to lower yours, please post how.

Looks like my card got shutdown.

I am able to login but can't access reward portal anymore, also card removed from Android Pay and can't be added back again.

Only 3x500 ms last week from wfm(paid with phone), cvs and safeway(chip), mixed with regular spendings.

My card was just shut down also, I called they said "suspicious activity" regarding CVS and using to bypass cash advance fees. I got the 4,500 spend in but wonder if i will ever get a single point.

I currently have both personal and business Flex Perks and Club Carlson cards I applied for the Altitude card and was declined. I called the recon line and they said I had too much existing credit with US Bank. We lowered one card by $20,000 and she resubmitted it saying that would do the trick. Called again today and was told I was still declined Wasted a hard pull

Any other USB cards? Total shutdown? Did you only use mobile pay or did you swipe any GCs?

The vast majority of my brick-and-mortar spending is in restaurants, which I already earn 3x pts on with CSR, so I don't care too much about getting extra points for contactless payment.

What I am interested to see is what happens when Android Pay/Samsung Pay integrate with Visa Checkout, likely later this year. Will those payments count as mobile wallet payments? If so this could get interesting. I have no desire to use an Android phone, but if it codes as mobile wallet I'd be willing to buy a cheap Android device just to use at Visa Checkout sites...

Radpad has a feature that allows Apple Pay to be used, triple points for most likely your biggest monthly expense (if you rent), that's no bad at all. I just opened a US Bank account, so I have to wait at least 35 days before even attempting to apply. Fingers crossed though.
