Enjoy all the rewards and perks Quicksilver offers, with a $0 annual fee.

2. Unlimited 1.5% Cash Back

Make the most out of your everyday spending. Earn 1.5% cash back when you use your card on purchases like groceries, clothes and home improvement costs. There’s no limit on how much you can earn, and your rewards won’t expire for the life of your account. 

3. Rewards Redemption

Ready to cash in your rewards? You have plenty of options. You can redeem rewards as a statement credit or a check in the mail or use them to cover the cost of a recent purchase—or even use them to shop at Amazon.com. You can also use your rewards to get gift cards from retailers, restaurants, hotel chains and more.1

You can redeem rewards for any amount you want, and there’s no limit on how much you can earn.

When you’re ready to cash in, just sign in to your account or use Capital One’s mobile banking app.

4. Fraud Alerts

When you add your mobile phone number to your account, you’ll get alerts if Capital One notices potentially suspicious activity.

5. Save Money While Shopping

Why spend precious time searching for the lowest price for something? Capital One Shopping is a free browser extension that instantly searches for available coupon codes and automatically applies the best one it can find. It’s free and easy, and you don’t even have to be a Capital One cardholder to use it. 

6. Card Lock

Card lock is a handy feature if your card is ever lost or stolen. With just a few taps, you can easily lock your card from use.2 This can also be helpful if you misplace your card. And if you find your card or want to use it again, you can unlock it just as easily.

7. No Foreign Transaction Fees

With Quicksilver, you won’t pay foreign transaction fees when making purchases outside the United States. It’s one less thing to worry about once you’re comfortable traveling internationally again.

8. CreditWise From Capital One

CreditWise is a free tool that allows you to monitor your VantageScore® 3.0 credit score. You can access it from your desktop or from your phone, so you have it at your fingertips. Using CreditWise to keep an eye on your credit won’t hurt your score. And it’s available to everyone, not just Capital One customers.

9. Eno, Your Capital One Assistant

Eno looks out for you and your money around the clock, reaches out if it spots something unusual and then helps you fix it. That includes monitoring your transactions and alerting you about unusual account activity like duplicate charges.

Eno also lets you keep your actual card number private when shopping online. By adding Eno to your browser, you can pay with a virtual card number instead.

10. Add an Additional Account User

Adding an authorized user to your account can help you earn more rewards and keep track of spending all in one place. There’s no additional cost to add a user to your account, and you’ll just need a few of the user’s personal details to get them set up. Once they’re added, they’ll receive a card to start using right away. Just keep in mind that you’ll ultimately be responsible for the payments.

11. Tap to Pay

Pay at checkout up to 10 times faster without having to hand your card over to the cashier. The Quicksilver card is contactless, so you can simply hold or tap it on a contactless-enabled reader. Once you get a confirmation, you’re all set. Wondering how to tell if your card or the merchant terminal is contactless? Look for the symbol of four curved lines.
