Capital One® Rewards Credit Cards and Benefits

How to make the most of your rewards credit cards


Whether you’re a current cardholder or shopping around for a new card, credit card rewards and benefits have probably factored into your decision to apply for a particular card. Spotting bonuses such as cash back or travel miles may be obvious. But many rewards credit cards offer much more.

Anyone who’s examined a rewards credit card offer knows how much information there is to digest. As you compare rates, spending limits and annual fees, it can be easy to overlook other advantages.

Here are a few Capital One card perks you may not know about—and a few of the cards that unlock the potential of a rewards credit card.

The Obvious Benefit: Rewards

Rewards are one major benefit of many cards. Some rewards credit cards let you earn cash back. Some travel rewards can be redeemed for recent travel purchases. 

Capital One has rewards credit cards to fit your lifestyle—so you can get the kind of rewards that matter most to you.

A rewards credit card for travel

If you love to use credit card rewards for travel-related purchases, the Venture® card could be the right card for you. You’ll earn unlimited double miles on every purchase, every day. Tack on an introductory bonus—50,000 bonus miles if you spend $3,000 within the first three months of opening an account—and you'll be taking off on your next trip before you know it. The Venture card also offers up to a $100 credit for either Global Entry or TSA PreCheck if you use the card to pay the application fee.

A cash back rewards credit card for dining and entertainment

If you want to earn unlimited 4% cash back on dining and entertainment, 2% at grocery stores1 and 1% on all other purchases, try the Savor® card. Savor cardholders can also earn 8% cash back on tickets at Vivid Seats through May 2020.2

A cash back rewards credit card for everyday purchases

If you want to earn unlimited 1.5% cash back on every purchase, every day, check out the Quicksilver® card. The rewards offers don’t stop there. If you spend $500 on purchases within the first three months of opening an account, you get a one-time cash bonus of $150.
