Through the end of 2020, dining purchases are a new bonus category for the card, earning 3 points per $1 spent. That’s in addition to the card’s existing rewards structure, which offers:
5 points per $1 spent on prepaid hotels and car rentals booked directly in the Altitude Rewards Center.
3 points per $1 spent on eligible travel and mobile wallet spending.
1 point per $1 spent on everything else.
What’s more, the card’s annual $325 travel credit — already one of the most generous such perks on the market — can now be applied toward dining purchases, also through the end of the year.
The moves from U.S. Bank are similar to those made by several other issuers in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Premium travel cards, such as the Chase Sapphire Reserve® and the Citi Prestige® Card, have made made similar adjustments to their ongoing rewards structures and travel credits to make their products more useful to cardholders who aren’t traveling nearly as much during the outbreak.
