Thank you Nathan in Okinawa in helping me getting me approved for my new USAA Limitless™ Cashback Rewards Visa Signature®! As you know this new 2.5% cashback card will over take my plated, Spinner Rimmed, Bling Bling, Flossy Gaudy, 24kt gold Barclay Gold Luxury Card which has forsaken us by discontinuation of the the annual $995 annual fee waiver for new members.
I applied while flying transcontinental from SFO to DCA using the United WiFi. Some exciting things happening for those below me in flyover country. For the those that are holding out, it looks like a bunch of states have been added to the list: AL, AZ, CO, GA, HI, ID, IL, IN, KS, LA, MI, NM, NV, NY, PA, RI, SC, TN, TX and WA.
Notice how any of the states that service members gravitate to like DC, MD CA, and FL have been added, good news is that they use your home of record as the resident state. I have a friend in Japan that has PA as his state that was able to get the card.
You can apply here.
The card’s 2.5% on everything is more than the 2.0% on everything from Barclays Gold. You would still get 6.25% on airline tickets on AmEx Personal Platinum dumping the MR points using the points via Charles Schwab. You still get 6% on the Blue Cash Preferred, and the gas at 4% using the Citi Anywhere from Costco. Next step is the 5% cashback on the Chase Amazon Card.
