Frequently Asked Questions

How Do You Calculate My Balance?
We use a method called “average daily balance (including new transactions).” See “How Do You Calculate The Interest Charge?” section below.

Are There Any Other Penalty Fees Associated With This Card That Are Not Listed In The Box Above?
No. There are no additional Penalty Fees associated with this card.

What Should I Put For Total Annual Income?
You may include personal income, which is income you have earned, including full-time, part-time, or seasonal jobs, self-employment, interest or dividends, retirement, and public assistance. You may also include shared income, which is money from somebody else that is regularly deposited into your individual account or into a joint account that person shares with you. If you are 21 or over, you may also include somebody else’s income that is regularly used to pay your expenses.

What Will My APR Be If I Transfer A Balance?
Any balances you transfer will receive a Transfer APR and post to your account's Purchase segment.

Can You Change My APRs?
If your payment is received late (3 or more days after your payment due date) twice within any 12 billing periods, we may increase your APRs to the Penalty APR disclosed above. If we increase your APRs for late payments, we may return you to your prior APRs if you make at least the minimum payment on time for 12 consecutive billing periods. In the future, we may increase your APRs if market conditions change. If we increase your APRs for any reason other than an increase in the Prime Rate or if you paid late as disclosed above, we will notify you in writing of your options in advance, including the right to opt out.

What About Any Other Terms Of My Account?
We may change any other terms of your account, other than APRs, at any time. If we change any of these terms, we will notify you in writing of your options in advance, including the right to opt out of certain changes.

How Do You Calculate My Variable Rates?
Your variable rates may change when the Prime Rate changes. We calculate variable rates by adding a percentage to the Prime Rate published in The Wall Street Journal on the 25th day of each month. If the Journal is not published on that day, then see the immediately preceding edition. Variable rates on the following segment(s) will be updated quarterly and will take effect on the first day of your January, April, July and October billing periods: Purchase APR: Prime plus 19.74%; Transfer APR: Prime plus 19.74%; Cash Advance APR: Prime plus 19.74%; Penalty APR: Prime plus 26.15%. Any increase in the Prime Rate may increase your Interest Charges and your Minimum Payment.

How Do You Determine My Credit Line?
We will determine your credit line after a review of your application and your ability to pay. If your application is approved, the minimum credit line you will receive is $500.

What Are The Daily Periodic Rates Used To Calculate My Interest?
The daily periodic rate for your Purchase APR is 0.06367%, Transfer APR is 0.06367%, Cash Advance APR is 0.06367%, and Penalty APR is 0.08123%. See “How Do You Calculate The Interest Charge?” section in the below Additional Disclosures.

How Do You Calculate My Minimum Payment?
If your balance is less than $15, your minimum payment will be equal to your balance. Otherwise, your minimum payment will be the greater of $15 or 1% of your balance plus new interest and late payment fees. We will also add any past due amount to your minimum payment. If your Account charges off, the entire balance is due immediately.

Does Capital One Report Credit Information, And Can That Build Business Credit?
We provide accurate and timely information about Spark Business accounts to business credit bureaus, and may also provide this information to consumer credit bureaus. This gives you an opportunity to build your business credit by showing that you pay bills on time and don’t go over your credit limit.

THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THIS REWARDS PROGRAM


How do I earn rewards?
You will earn 1% cash back on net purchases (purchases minus any credits or returns) only. Cash advances, balance transfers, and checks used to access your account are not considered purchases and will not earn rewards.

Will my rewards ever expire?
Your rewards are yours for the life of the account—they will not expire. But if your account is closed, you will lose any rewards you have not redeemed.

Is there a limit to the amount of rewards I can earn?
There is no cap to the amount of rewards you can earn on purchases.

How do I redeem my rewards?
You can get your cash back upon request in the form of a statement credit or a check. You can also set up an automatic redemption preference; options include: (1) at a set time each calendar year or (2) when a specific threshold ($25, $50, $100 or $200) has been reached. Just go online to capitalone.com or contact our Rewards Center. You can also redeem for credits for previous purchases, gift cards, and more. Rates for these redemption options may vary and are subject to change without notice. 

What happens if I do not set up an automatic redemption preference?
Until you set up an automatic redemption preference, you will receive your cash back upon your request.

How often can I change my automatic redemption preference?
You may change your automatic redemption preference at any time, but you cannot request an annual redemption to be fulfilled in the same month you make a change. If you have an automatic redemption preference, you may also make upon-request redemptions without interfering with your pre-established automatic redemption preference.

Is my account eligible to transfer rewards?
Your account may be eligible to transfer rewards. Please be aware that transfers are only permitted between certain Capital One rewards accounts. Not all rewards products are eligible for transfer.

THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THIS CARD

When Can I Request A Balance Transfer?
You may call to request a balance transfer 10 days after your account is opened. Balance transfers between Capital One accounts are not permitted. That means balances cannot be transferred to this account from any other credit card issued by Capital One including, but not limited to cards branded with, Kohl’s, Sony, GM, BuyPower Card, Union Plus, and Teamster Privilege.

How Do You Apply My Payment?
We will apply payments up to your minimum payment first to the balance with the lowest APR (including 0% APR), and then to balances with higher APRs. We apply any part of your payment exceeding your minimum payment to the balance with the highest APR, and then to balances with lower APRs.

How Can I Avoid Paying Interest Charges?
If you pay your statement’s “New Balance” in full by the due date, we will not charge interest on any new transactions that post to the Purchase balance. If you have been paying your account in full without interest charges, but fail to pay your next “New Balance” in full, we will charge interest on the unpaid balance. For cash advances and special transfers, we will start charging interest on the transaction date. From time to time, we may give you offers that allow you to pay less than the total balance and avoid interest charges to new transactions that post to your purchase balance. If we do, we will provide details in the specific offer.

How Is The Interest Charge Applied?
Interest charges accrue from the 1) date of the transaction, 2) date the transaction is processed or 3) first calendar day of the billing period. Interest charges accrue on every unpaid amount until it is paid in full. This means you may owe interest charges even if you pay the entire “New Balance” one month, but did not do so the previous month. Unpaid interest charges are added to the proper segment of your account. However, we reserve the right to not assess interest charges.

How Do You Calculate The Interest Charge?
We use a method called Average Daily Balance (including new transactions). Under this method, we first calculate your daily balance; for each segment, 1) take the beginning balance and add in new transactions and the periodic interest charge on the previous day’s balance, then 2) subtract any payments and credits for that segment as of that day. The result is the daily balance for each segment. However, if you paid your previous month’s balance in full (or if your balance was zero or a credit amount), new transactions which post to your purchase or special purchase segments are not added to the daily balances. Also, transactions subject to a grace period are not added to the daily balances.

Next, to find your Average Daily Balance: 1) add the daily balances together for each segment, and 2) divide the sum by the number of days in the billing cycle.

At the end of each billing cycle, we determine your Interest Charge as follows: 1) multiply your Average Daily Balance by the daily periodic rate (APR divided by 365) for that segment, and 2) multiply the result by the number of days in the billing period. NOTE: Due to rounding or a minimum interest charge, this calculation may vary from the interest charge actually assessed.

Are Unauthorized Use Or $0 Fraud Liability Claims Subject To Investigation And Verification?
Yes.

How Do I Get A Year-End Summary?
Your Capital One Spark Business Card account must be open and in good standing (not overlimit or past due) and must have had at least one transaction in the last calendar year to receive a Year-End Summary.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW ACCOUNT:

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means for you: When you apply for or open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
