We have a lock down on Citi, Chase, and AmEx in waiving annual fees on their products. Now we need a depository of data points for US Bank. I want to have everyone put them here.
I got my U.S. Bank Altitude card May 2017. This was well before the MLA took effect on September 2017 so the $400 annual fee was not, and will not be waived for me. I continue to pay the $400 since I get $325 in travel credits, this makes my total cost of membership $75 which I can get back in the form of the in flight WiFi and Andrew Harper Magazine.
The O-4 specialist here got one under his own name three months ago and got the waiver no problem. He is currently enjoying $325 in credit every year. The most recent datapoint is the spouse of an O-3 that got the U.S. Bank Altitude card and received this letter in the mail:
She has not been charged the $400, and the letter mentions nothing regarding MLA. The service member tried for his own Altitude, but was denied due to too many new applications at other banks.
Please post your data points below if you got them.
