This posts include everything you need to know about US Bank’s FlexPerks program. It is a program that isn’t talked about often, but there definitely can be value in the program. As you’ll learn more in the detailed posts below, FlexPerks has a fixed tiered program. That means that you redeem the same number of points regardless of the price of the flight within a tier. The best value is when you use your points at the top of the tier which will allow you to get close to 2 cents per point.

US Bank FlexPerksOne if the nice aspects of this program is that the airlines treat the reservations as a paid ticket. This means you’ll earn the regular points or miles as if you booked directly through the airline. Your flight will also count towards earning airline status. In my opinion, this makes points worth a little bit more than airline specific points. This is also similar to when you book through the Chase Ultimate Rewards travel portal and American Express Membership Rewards travel portal and use your respective points.

To primary way to earn points with the program is to use the affiliated credit cards for your everyday spend. They do run various promotions as well, but it will only give you small quantities of points here and there. As with many programs, the best way to earn points fast is with their credit card sign up offers.

These individual posts make up an entire series on the US Bank FlexPerks program and will help you earn and maximize your points.

Overall, Chase Ultimate Reward points can be a very strong especially currency. My personal favorite transfer partners overall are United, British, Airways, and Hyatt. The best part of the program is that unlike American Express Membership Rewards it does not cost you anything to transfer your points. And when you use the “pay with points” option you earn points while redeeming points. The one downfall is that they never have transfer bonuses like American Express Membership Rewards.
