US Bank Altitude Reserve Card

Looks like US Bank is getting into the Premium Card game.

- 50,000 Points worth $750 when you spend $4500 in the first 90 days
- Triple Points on Travel Purchases
- $325 Annual Travel Credit
- 12 free gogo wifi passes
- Airport Lounge Access, TSA Pre, black car and car rental service, Visa Inifite Concierge service and more
- Custom Engraved Metal Card

Not sure on the annual fee but this could be a promising card.

I can send the memo from an usbank employee but was afraid it violated the terms and didn't want to get anyone in trouble. I have a screen shot of it if anyone wants to see it. It looks the doc was available 4/4. Training employees starts 4/18 and the card is coming out in May.

See, with the original spelling error of "Attitude Reserve" it definitely seemed like an April's Fool joke

But "Altitude Reserve" I can see being legit.

In January 2017, US Bank has a trademark on Altitude for credit cards sales.

Does black refer to limousine service?

I googled and also saw the trademark for Altitude by US Bank.

Seems legit.

with the updated information coming in, I will admit that I was wrong and this seems legit

does custom engraving mean I can get my face engraved on the card ?

- $325 Annual Travel Credit
.
Amex needs to lose the specific airline designation for their travel credit, very out of market at this point.

Given the $325 travel credit, it will be interesting to see what the annual fee is. I would assume $450, but one never knows.

Is the point currency flexperks or something else? I assume flexperks, but unclear in the media. Any hangups w/ recent opened accounts or inquiries like Chase's 5/24?
