Via Reddit, through July 31, 2016, you can earn 30,000 LAN miles with the US Bank LANPASS Visa Signature card after meeting minimum spending requirements.
This could be an interesting option for folks who already have a lot of cards, need miles for short-haul flights, or are planning a trip to South America.
But this is NOT a good card if you’re new to the hobby of miles & points. Because there are better cards that offer higher sign-up bonuses and more flexible miles and points.
