i A statement credit will automatically be applied to a
cardmember’s Account when the card is used for qualifying Net Purchases
directly with travel merchants, up to a total of $325 in statement
credits each cardmember year. Purchases qualify as travel based on the
category code merchants select to classify their business. U.S. Bank
cannot control how merchants choose to classify their business or
transactions and reserves the right to determine which Purchases will
qualify and in which category. Net Purchases during each billing cycle
will be calculated and a corresponding statement credit will be applied
to the cardmember’s Account the next time it cycles. See footnote 2,
below, for details on qualifying Net Purchases.

transactions using a mobile wallet. “Mobile wallet” is defined as the
method of paying for a transaction by use of a mobile device (in-store,
in-app or online). If the transaction is an eligible mobile wallet
transaction and an eligible travel category transaction, additional
Points will only be awarded for one of the transaction types (Points
will be applied as mobile wallet, not travel). Points are earned on
qualifying Net Purchases. Net Purchases are purchases minus credits and
returns. Qualifying purchases do not include Convenience Checks, Balance
Transfers, Advances (including, but not limited to, wire transfers,
traveler’s checks, money orders, foreign cash transactions, and ATM
