1 A statement credit will automatically be applied to a cardmember's Account when the card is used for qualifying Net Purchases directly with travel merchants, up to a total of $325 in statement credits each cardmember year. Purchases qualify as travel based on the category code merchants select to classify their business. U.S. Bank cannot control how merchants choose to classify their business or transactions and reserves the right to determine which Purchases will qualify and in which category. Net Purchases during each billing cycle will be calculated and a corresponding statement credit will be applied to the cardmember's Account the next time it cycles. See footnote 2, below, for details on qualifying Net Purchases.
2 U.S. Bank Altitude Reserve Visa Infinite Cardmembers will earn 1 Point for every $1 in qualifying Net Purchases. Cardmembers will earn 2 additional Points for every $1 in qualifying Net Purchases during each billing cycle for transactions made directly with merchants who classify their business as a travel category transaction, and for transactions using a mobile wallet. "Mobile wallet" is defined as the method of paying for a transaction by use of a mobile device (in-store, in-app or online). If the transaction is an eligible mobile wallet transaction and an eligible travel category transaction, additional Points will only be awarded for one of the transaction types (Points will be applied as mobile wallet, not travel). Points are earned on qualifying Net Purchases. Net Purchases are purchases minus credits and returns. Qualifying purchases do not include Convenience Checks, Balance Transfers, Advances (including, but not limited to, wire transfers, traveler’s checks, money orders, foreign cash transactions, and ATM disbursements), Interest Charges and Fees, credit insurance charges, or transactions to fund certain prepaid card products. We reserve the right to adjust the number of Points for Purchases or to stop issuing Points for Purchases on the Account, upon notice to you. Refer to the U.S. Bank Altitude Reserve Visa Infinite Cardmember Agreement for full details.
