To determine the rewards potential of the U.S. Bank Cash+ Visa Signature Card we have to consider what an American household might spend on a credit card each year. Forbes Advisor uses data from various government agencies in order to determine both baseline income and spending averages across various categories. The 70th percentile of wage-earning households bring in $100,172 annually and we base spending on that number.
Forbes Advisor estimates that the household has $26,410 in expenses that can be reasonably charged to a credit card. Assuming that $4,284 is spent in 5% cash back categories each year, a cardholder would earn $214.20 in cash back each year. Assuming an additional $5,687 is spent at grocery stores and earns 2% cash back, $113.74 more cash back will be earned. If remaining credit card expenses of $12,723 are charged, $127.23 of cash back will be earned, resulting in a total of $455.17 in annual cash back.
