Or, consider other cards for 50,000 more miles or points that transfer into United miles with additional flexibility for your everyday spending.

A lot of credit card enthusiasts are raving about a new card from US Bank – the no annual fee Cash Plus Visa. The reason why is simple – it offers one of the most innovative ways to earn spending category bonuses in a no annual fee card. Here’s how it works:
Here’s where it gets interesting.
Aside from some unique 5% categories like Amazon.com that sometimes show up in the Chase Freedom rotation, and some more widely used categories like gas or groceries, the US Bank card is the superior one. But the good news is both are no annual fee cards, so you can keep both in your wallet to maximize any time.
However one way the Freedom can handily beat the US Bank Cash Plus is the ability to convert the points you earn into Chase Ultimate Rewards points. If you have the premium Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card that means you can transfer these points into several airline and hotel programs like United, Hyatt, Southwest, British Airways, and more. If you get the right redemption (like a business class ticket to Europe) you can earn much more than 5% value from your points.
But if it’s straight cash you’re after the US Bank Cash Plus should be part of your no annual fee card rotation, along with the Citi Forward (5% cash back on restaurants / movie theaters) and Chase Freedom (for those occasional unique 5% categories).
The good news for you is you don’t have to carry just one.
