MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--U.S. Bank will issue credit cards made from recycled plastic for the entire U.S. Bank Altitude® Go Visa Signature® and U.S. Bank Altitude® Go Secured Visa® credit card lines, as well as U.S. Bank Altitude® Go World Elite Mastercard®. In addition, cardholders can redeem points as a contribution toward a variety of nonprofits listed in the Altitude Rewards Center. U.S. Bank will match each point donation made – thereby doubling the value of donations to selected nonprofits.
For example, if you take your family out to a nice dinner at a cost of $250, and you use your U.S. Bank Altitude® Go Visa Signature® Card, you can earn 4X points on your dining purchase, which equates to 1,000 points. You can then redeem those points towards a monetary charitable contribution to one of eight nonprofits located in the Altitude Rewards Center: American Red Cross; Eco Challenge; Habitat for Humanity; Human Rights Campaign; National CAPACD; Operation Homefront; United Negro College Fund; and United Way. Thanks to the 100% match from U.S. Bank, your point redemption (1,000 points equals $10) will be matched at 100%, for another $10 donation from U.S. Bank – giving your selected nonprofit a $20 donation altogether.
“We know our key stakeholders – including our customers, employees and communities – care about the world in which they live, work and play,” said Steve Mattics, head of Retail Payment Solutions for U.S. Bank. “Issuing cards made with recycled plastic and making matching dollar contributions to organizations that people care about are additional ways in which we reflect our commitment to the communities we serve.”
