I recently signed up for the U.S. Bank FlexPerks Visa credit card during the Olympic Promo. Card holders were awarded bonus points depending on the number of Olympic medals won by the US team in Brazil in addition to the regular signup bonus of 20,000 points. Reports on reddit indicate that some have been receiving their bonus points upon the statement close date this month. I can indeed confirm that this is the case.
I signed up for the FlexPerks Visa alongside the FlexPerks Gold Amex to combine pulls. I was also approved for that card and received the bonus this past week too.
These two bonuses combined with the FlexPerks Amex (non-Gold) bonus I received a few months back put my running total of FlexPerks points at almost 100,000! These points will definitely go a long way towards our travel expenses. Julie and I are planning on chasing status with Alaska Airlines in 2017 and a big premise of our blog is our goal of gaining Million Miler with Alaska as quickly as possible! A potential redemption we had in mind was SEA>FLL since this is one of the longest domestic flights in the United States and it is one of the longest direct flight paths that Alaska Airlines flies.
