Immediately Rewarding Card

USAA emailed me a prescreened letter that promised $200 after approval as long as I spend $500 on qualified purchases within first 90 days. Having been approved for 7 different new credit card accounts within last 2 years, I strongly considered the negative impact my credit rating would take after another hard inquiry but the "bait" of $200 was big enough to risk that temporary credit rating drop. I got approved and was ecstatic over my credit limit. The generous $10500 credit limit will more than make up for the negative hard inquiry hit by creating more overall available credit. I also appreciate the USAA app giving card owners the option to lower credit limit. This USAA Rate Advantage Visa Platinum Card has quickly become my favorite card next to my Discover Cash Back Card.

I forgot to mention that you have to go USAA site, Experian site or other site to apply in order to get the $200 welcome bonus because Credit Karma isnt advertising it on their site.

I have been a member now for over 10 years and cannot day enough good about them. As a bank and car insurance they’re outstanding but couple in everything they offer their members and it’s a no brainer to go with them.

A very good card!
JCUrban Cardholder

As a USAA member since 2013, I have nothing to complain! Got a notice when I logged into my account that I have been pre-approved. Looking at the 0% APR for any purchase unti December 2020 and $200 rebate after spending $500 on any qualifying purchases, I can't see why not apply! So I did and it took less than 5 minutes to get approved. Though, I wish USAA approved me for lesser amount because the reality is, I will never spend the amount of money they approved me of. USAA, thank you, for being so awesome! I have been a grateful member since 2013!!!
