February 16, 2023

This “road warriors” card provides up to 5x rewards for business travel purchases

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 16, 2023-- U.S. Bank, an industry leader in payment and banking services for small business clients, and Mastercard announced today the launch of the new U.S. Bank Business Altitude™ Connect World Elite Mastercard® to maximize rewards for business travelers. With benefits including 5x back on prepaid car and hotel bookings via the U.S. Bank Rewards Center and a 4x reward for other travel expenses – such as airfare and hotels, plus gas and EV charging – this card is specifically designed for growing small businesses planning frequent and ongoing travel, from flying to driving.

As an added bonus, the card allows cardmembers who have a personal U.S. Bank Altitude® Go or Altitude Connect® card to transfer points to or from their Business Altitude™ Connect World Elite Mastercard. The ability to transfer points gives cardmembers the option to accelerate earning potential via rewards for business or pleasure.

“U.S. Bank Business Altitude Connect World Elite Mastercard was created with ‘road warriors’ in mind – those people and companies that are going places with a mission to grow their business,” said Steve Mattics, head of Retail Payment Solutions for U.S. Bank. “We expect that business travel will continue to bounce back in the coming year, and as business travel continues to accelerate, ‘road warrior’ companies will appreciate a tool that can help them earn accelerated rewards on travel spend. This card, along with our full suite of integrated payments and banking solutions, truly powers the potential of our business clients.”

Beyond frequent travel rewards, the U.S. Bank Business Altitude™ Connect World Elite Mastercard also provides a 2x reward for dining and cell phone service expenses, plus 1x return on all eligible purchases, as well as additional benefits such as no foreign transaction fees, airport lounge access through the Priority Pass network, auto rental damage coverage, lost luggage insurance & travel assistance services.

The U.S. Bank Business Altitude™ Connect World Elite Mastercard® carries no annual fee the first year and a $95 annual fee thereafter. Plus, there is no fee for additional employee cards.

With the U.S. Bank mobile app, cardmembers can track spending for their business, easily add and manage employee card accounts, and set account alerts to help their companies manage fees, statements and potential fraud activity.
