How to Apply for the U.S. Bank FlexPerks Select American Express Credit Card

For those of you who love to travel and are searching for a rewards program that caters to your passion, the U.S. Bank FlexPerks Select American Express Credit Card might be perfect for you. With no annual fee and a decent APR (14.49%), the rewards program could earn you thousands of points that can go towards your next trip, or cash back towards statement credit if you prefer. However, we should warn you that if your credit score is poor, you could be offered an APR as high as 24.49% (APR is subject to change). If this is the case, it would probably be wise to check out other rewards credit cards offering a much lower APR. If you think your credit is up to par and you’re looking to do a lot of traveling, the rewards program offers 1 point per $1 spent on all purchases. A mere 20,000 points is the equivalent of a $400 ticket! You can travel on more than 150 airlines with no blackout dates or online redemption fees. If traveling doesn’t interest you, you can redeem your points for merchandise, gift certificates, cash back, or towards statement credit.
