The U.S. Bank Altitude Reserve Visa Infinite Card is a high-end travel card made of metal — stainless steel. It has a relatively high annual fee of $400, but comes with many benefits not found on cards with lower annual fees.

It provides 3X points on eligible travel and mobile wallet purchases (the mobile wallet category can be very useful because many merchants today accept mobile wallets). The eligible mobile wallets are Apple Pay, Android Pay, Samsung Pay, and Microsoft Wallet.

An introductory offer of 50,000 bonus points is available for spending $4,500 in the first 90 days after account opening, equivalent to $750 in travel redemptions.

Cardholders also get a $325 annual travel credit, a 12-month membership to Priority Pass Select for airport lounge access, and a statement credit for the application fee of either Global Entry ($100) or TSA PreCheck ($85), once every four years.

Some other travel perks are included as well, like special rental privileges and discounts at Silvercar and enhanced status at Relais & Châteaux hotels and resorts.

The Altitude Reserve has no foreign transaction fees. Additional authorized users will cost $75 per year.

This card is only available to people who have been a U.S. Bank customer for a minimum of 35 days prior to submitting an application. According to U.S. Bank, that’s defined as having a “Checking or Savings account, Certificate of Deposit, Mortgage, Home Equity Loan, Home Equity Line of Credit, Auto/Boat/RV Loan, Personal Loans and Lines, Private Banking account or Consumer Credit Card issued by U.S. Bank.”
