Our Take

The Capital One® Venture® Rewards Credit Card offers flexible travel rewards to people with good to excellent credit.

What to Like

Cardholders get 2 miles for every dollar spent on purchases, and 40,000 bonus miles after spending $3,000 within 3 months of approval. As long as the card is open, the rewards don’t expire, and miles can be used for flights, hotels, car rentals, cruises and more.

Look Out For

After the first year, the card comes with a $59 annual fee and there’s no 0% intro APR for purchases or transfers.

Outstanding Customer Service!!!!!!!
CCJedi Cardholder

Wow, I am officially blown away. I missed a payment due to a quad accident requiring multiple surgery's recently. When I called in to discuss it with the Capital One folks they were super helpful, dropped charges and interest and wait for it ... they had an amazing metal tub of baked cookies sent to my house wishing me a speedy recovery. Never saw that coming.

This is a lesson for my own business. I can't explain how impressed I am. Count me a fan for life of Capital One.

Great rewards, terrible customer
Anonymous Cardholder

Love the rewards, website, and superlative iOS apps, but....

Hate hate hate having to talk to their support people, especially their fraud team. Chat agents are unable to perform many basic account tasks (like rushing replacement cards). Their fraud staff, just as far as language comprehension, tact, soft skills, are among the worst I've spoken with (think Comcast bad). Hold times are often quite long as well.

Definitely the worst of the financial institutions I have relationships with from a service perspective.

Best travel card
ArcherLover Cardholder

I love this card. I've already racked up some major points and booked a trip to england for free! Don't ever carry a balance with this card because of the interest rate. But service has been great. Loving the no international transaction fees too. Fiancé lives abroad so I'm traveling 3 times a years.

Switch to Quicksilver
burritomen Cardholder

Decent card with no annual fee (when I had it). Approved with 680 credit score for 1500 and upgraded to 4000 shortly after. I calculated the rewards to be about 1.3% back, and I switched to quicksilver after 6 months. However, they do have a double points version of this card that you can get after 6 months.

You must have the wrong card. The Venture is 2x miles on everything.

You have the VentureOne, not the regular Venture.

I get $500 in Free Travel every Year!
pbenbrown Cardholder

There's a $50 fee, but since I use the card for almost everything, including utility bills, insurance premiums, etc., I manage to spend about $25k/yr on the card. With double points on everything, that's 50,000 points, or $500 I can apply towards any travel-related purchase. Even cab fares and train tickets are reimbursable! The interest rates are high, so I NEVER maintain a balance, no matter how much I charge in a month. Between the rewards and the 30 day interest-free "float" you can't go wrong.

30 day interest free "float"? You meaning until statement date?

Good rewards, easy approval, high APR

One of the primary things I was looking for when reading these reviews were credit scores of those who applied. I wanted to see if I would qualify as well. So, let me cut directly to the chase:

According to my CK scores, I had 684 (TU) and 682 (EQ). FICO 8 scores were 671 (EQ), 631 (TU) and 685 (EX). I was instantly approved with a $15k limit and 23.24% APR.

Some of the surrounding factors that may have played a role in approval:

- I applied online even though I was not pre-approved by CapitalOne.

- I have an existing secured credit card with CapOne that has a two year history and all on time payments.

- Although I occassionally carry a balance on the secured card, I normally pay it off and it currently has $0 on it.

- I have an auto loan with CapOne that is one year old and all on time payments.

- I have a good salary, between $75-99k.

- I have no mortgage payment as my home is paid for.

I hope this helps others.

This is my "Go To" card, ..always.
ElGuapo15 Cardholder

This credit card is for the very "savvy"  credit card user and those that know how to spend only what is intended within the monthly budget.  This card I use for any and every purchase someone make without paying really high card fees.  Also, the card miles can be used in various ..hotel , airline trip, credit toward purchase and gift card purchases.  I'm really glad I acquired the card and seriously the customer service agents are great, no problems at all.  Pay your charges right away and you will not pay any charges in interest.  Thank you Capital One.
