Interesting to see another potential 4% no-annual fee card for dining after the devaluation of the Uber Visa (to 3%, only redeemable as Uber cash). Curious to see how long US Bank keeps it - even in the past when they took a bath (e.g. the US Bank Cash+) they tended to put in quarterly spend limits for earn rather than just cut the reward rate on the whole.

$15 streaming credit seems pretty usable - doing the math against the 5% streaming categories of the discover It/Chase Freedom (assuming you stack both for six months of these categories), math is nice unless you subscribe to a ton of services. Very easy to get the 12th month free with a Netflix 4K or Spotify Family subscription at $15/$16 a month.

It was back in Feb/March on doctor credit site. I think eventually they'll make changes to reserve card since it's annual fee is $75 after credits and the coming altitude connect will be $95.

With a lot of personal knowledge on the high multiplier dining cards (all the way back to Citi MTVu Forward at 5x), I don't see 4x on a no AF card lasting long (as noted with Barclays Uber). Perhaps in the short-term, but what happens on these cards is there is just not a lot of 1x spending to offset.

The $15 streaming credit is interesting because it doesn't require that you spend a certain amount per month as I read it (but you need to have a participating charge every month). So, you can subscribe to a low cost service (Hulu $1.99 or Disney + standalone or a participating music service).

Great to see new cards come in the market and for people to get in with a new issuer.

No iTunes or Apple TV Plus? If buying a movie from Vudu counts you'd think that buying a movie from iTunes would.

Note that it's $15 once annually not per month.
