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.

Simple but Limited Rewards Structure
jetblk3 Cardholder

Upgraded to the Venture from Quicksilver last year and I recently converted my account back to Quicksilver. The main reason is although you earn double points for every purchase with the Venture, the annual fee means you need to spend at least 8,000 to break even and start earning reward dollars. Secondly, when you want to redeem the points for something other than travel (or what Capital One recognizes as travel) you only get  50% of the value on your point redemption. Example: I take a trip and want to use reward dollars towards an expensive restaurant; if I have 20,000 points, and I redeem them for the meal, they are only worth $100 instead of $200 if I redeem an airline purchase. So, if you're not smart, you could be paying the $59 fee each year, spending less than $8,000 on the card, and redeeming your points for half of their value -- essentially losing money using the card instead of making money from the bank. If you stricly redeem for airfare purchases or train tickets, and spend a great deal on other purchases, it can be very simple. As for me, I didn't like to make airline purchases using the Venture to make airline purchases because I earn more points using the Amex Premier Rewards Gold. I would rather redeem Chase Ultimate Rewards or Amex Membership rewards points because instead of 1:1 value when using points, I can earn a 2:1 or 3:1 ration when transferring to certain airlines or hotel partners.

In the end, once I had accumulated substantial rewards, I converted the account back to Quicksilver and cashed out the points for 1:1 value. So now I have no annual fee but a guaranteed earning and redemption rate on my points.

In conclusion, the Venture card is good if you want no frills and use the card exactly the way Capital One advertises, for travel,

Nice card in comparison with others
Alex94ua Cardholder

Was approved for $10K with 749 (751) score. Spent $3000 and got my bonuses as long as miles on those $3000 spendings.

In total, I have got almost $500 in travel or $250 for regular purchases such as groceries and all. However, these five hundres will come in handy in summer for travel, or, at least, cover my NY MTA expeses and UBER (lyft, Gett,..). Overall, its nice card with unlimited 2 miles (2%) cash back. Planning to give a call and to try get rid of the annual fee in a year. Otherwise, will close it. 

P.S. During this month closed two credit cards becuase did not use at all. The credit score has benifed from it.

This card is amazing and the application was SO EASY. Not only is the 2% cash back totaly worth it, but  the sign up bonus gives you 2 round trip domestic flights, the annual renewal is only $59, and the website is SO EASY TO USE!! I had the R Us card (toys and babies r us) and it is not even close to comparable with the accessablity, accuracy, and ease of the website. Looking for cash back for purchases? The 2% also goes towards a HUGE assortment of gift cards you can get on the siite for the 2%, rather than getting 1% for actual cash. I mean, seriously, if you can go with this card with capital one, you should definitely do it. No matter what kind of rewards you are looking for.

Great Mid Range Card!
cacole1022 Cardholder

Capital One was the first bank to give me a chance when I started rebuilding my credit in 2015.  Started with the Platinum with a $2000 limit and worked my way up to the Quicksilver and then Venture with 23K limit. I only use this card as part of my rotation when the due dates on my other cards are too close.  The rewards are just alright due to low points earned per $ spent but I must say that I can always use a Walmart gift card because I am a self-admitted Walmart junkie!

Applied, received, canceled in 1 month

 I had a Capital One Quicksilver for about 14 months and decided to pair it with a Venture Card. Applied on February 12 and was approved. Received the card on the 20th of February and attempted to activate card but it showed that it was "Restricted". I contacted Capital One several times over the next few days and was told that Capital One believed that fraudulent activity was happening with the card. I was asked to verify my identity each time that I spoke with customer service and the fraud department. They asked me to send them copies of my Drivers Licence, SSN and a bill. I sent the information along with a copy of the Capital One bill that I recently downloaded (from my account of 14 months). I contacted them back on March 4th and was told that my documents were fraudulent and the new card was permanantly disabled. I had had enough of this now. I told them that I no longer wanted their Venture card and that since all of my documents were "fraudulent" then apparently even my Quicksilver card was. I canceled both cards at that point. If Capital One is not smart enough to understand that I complied with their security proceedures each time and that without DNA sampling, there would be no other way to verify that I really am ME! My top secret government background check at least allowed that I really am me.

13.49%?? Yeah, right.

I've had an 800+ credit rating for about 2 years. I was expecting the lowest interest rate offered. When I got my card with the 18% interest rate, I called & got some mumbled hem-haw blah blah blah about how I didn't qualify. I called the robot-in-charge and closed it immediately.

High credit line
afgmuscle Cardholder

I have been back and forth on here looking at this card and debating whether or not to apply for it since my credit isn't the greatest. I had bankruptcy discharged almost 2 years ago, since I applied for a Capital One Secure card, and then a few months after that I got approved for a Barclay card with a $500 credit line. I have had and used both accounts responsibily, making payments on time, and have not used a high % of my credit utilization. My fico is around 660, however CK and my Vantage Score are 700-709. I have student loans that are $15,000, however I do have another Chase card with a $8000 credit line that my mother had opened up for me and put my name on when I first turned 18. So that may have been a deciding factor. But I'm glad I applied. I just approved for a $10,000 credit line.
