Credit Record Needed:
Based on the FICO score recommendation, applicants should have a fairly solid credit record, with no recent negative marks on their report. A FICO credit score of 650 to 715 is recommended for a higher chance of approval, but this is not required. There are a number of other factors that this issuer may also consider when making decisions for approval. While your FICO score is usually a very important factor, you may want to consider other areas that may affect a decision for approval. For example, your debt to income ratio, recent credit inquiries, 30+ day delinquencies, or current credit accounts nearing the maximum amount may affect a credit decision.
FICO scores/credit scores are used to represent the creditworthiness of a person and may be one indicator to the credit type you are eligible for. However, a credit score alone does not guarantee or imply approval for any U.S. Bank product.
The grace period listed for the U.S. Bank Visa® Platinum Card is at least 24 days*. So interest charges will not be applied for new purchases during this time. Be aware that some issuers will begin charging interest on cash advances and balance transfers on the transaction date.
This card contains the brand of Visa, where acceptance is global. Most businesses that accept credit cards will accept Visa as a form of payment.
Annual Fee: $0 the first year and every year that you charge at least one purchase to the account, otherwise $40
