MINNEAPOLIS, Dec 21, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- The U.S. Bank FlexPerks Travel Rewards Visa Signature(R) credit card has
been named the "Best Credit Card if You Want Travel Perks" by Kiplinger's
Personal Finance in its December 2009 "Best List" issue.
FlexPerks was chosen for its compelling travel rewards that allow
customers to earn points toward free flights - which can be redeemed
with as few as 20,000 FlexPointsSM for airline tickets valued
up to $400 on over 150 airlines with no blackout dates, capacity
controls or award e-ticket redemption fees, plus baggage allowances.
Cardholders earn one FlexPoint for each dollar spent, simply by using
their FlexPerks Travel Rewards card. Double FlexPoints can be earned
automatically for gas, groceries or airline purchases - whichever is
highest for the customer during the month.
Customers have the flexibility to choose the rewards they want with
FlexPerks. In addition to travel, customers can earn cash back,
merchandise or gift cards when they use their FlexPerks cards.
Cardholders also enjoy the universal acceptance that is available to
Visa card customers.
