|U.S. Bank FlexPerks® Gold American Express® card||30K after $2K spend in 4 months|
The FlexPerks Gold American Express card is a good choice both for its signup bonus and its value for spend at restaurants. The card earns 3 points per dollar at restaurants and each point can be redeemed for 1.5 cents per point value towards travel. Taken together, that means that cardholders earn 4.5% in travel rewards for their restaurant spend. That said, it’s tough to justify this card’s $85 annual fee when considering that the no-fee Uber Visa Card earns 4% cash back at restaurants.
