  • Click to Show/Hide How is U.S. Bank able to categorize card transactions into Market Segments and Industries?
  • Visa® has assigned every merchant to a specific category or classification. When you make a credit card purchase, U.S. Bank receives this classification along with information about your purchase, and we use this classification to categorize your transaction. If a merchant is a large company with many different departments, we cannot specify the department from which the item was purchased.

Other Benefits
  • Click to Show/Hide Is an EMV microchip card available for international travel?
  • The EMV microchip card is now available and offers increased security and better acceptance when traveling to Canada and overseas, while continuing to work with ease for payments within the U.S. This rapidly expanding technology is already in use or being implemented in 130 countries around the globe. If you’re an existing Club Carlson Visa Cardmember planning a trip to Canada, Mexico or any other foreign country and your card doesn't have the EMV microchip, call the Cardmember Service number located above the magnetic stripe on the back of your card (800-236-4012 Consumer or 800-236-7546 Business) to request a replacement card 30 days prior to leaving on your trip.
