Overview

Ever since US Bank reduced the charity bonus on this card from 3X to 2X (and they stopped coding Kiva as a charity), this card has become less interesting to me.  With points worth 1.5 cents each towards travel, this card earns the equivalent of 3% back for its 2X categories. That’s good, but you may be able to do better with other cards.  See: Best Category Bonuses for many examples.

The one killer feature that makes this card worth keeping for some is that it offers 12 free domestic Gogo in-flight internet passes each year.  If you fly often enough, this feature alone can easily justify the card’s $49 annual fee.

FM Mini Review: This can be a good choice for a signup bonus, but other cards are more rewarding for spend. Card may be worth keeping for the Gogo in-flight internet passes.
