Great card with a little catch
Anonymous Cardholder

 opened the Venture account at the beginning of 2014. So far I have earned 40,000 points and that does not include 20,000 initial spending bonus. You get 2 points for every dollar spent. The only catch is, that when you redeem your points for rewards you will get 1 dollar for each 100 points only if you redeem for travel related purchases. Having that said there are many options to choose from: airfare, trains, coach buses, hotels, car rentals. So if you like traveling you will have no problem to reddem your rewards and get basically 2% cash back value. If you choose an acoount credit or check yopu will get only 50 cents for 100 points.

I think it is a great card. I have Capital One Quicksilver and with it I never came close to rewards that I earned with Venture. I calculated that with the $59 annual fee you will earn more than with 1.5% cash back card if you will spend more than $11200 annually. On the top of it customer service is great. In one instance I was short 800 points to erase a $250 airfare purchase. The missing points were given to me  y customer service! The card is a Visa Signature which gives you some extra deals here and there and there is never any wait to connect to customer service representative.

As far as APR I really do not care about it cause I never carry a balance. If you cannot pay your balance in full you shoudn't be getting this card. Your rewards will quickly be eaten by interest.

Not as good as it used to be
Anonymous Cardholder

I've had this card for about 6 years, and have always been happy with it until recently. The customer service has decreased dramatically. I used to call and chat with someone whenever I had an issue and they were always super friendly and helpful, answered all of my questions and basically just talked to me like I was an intelligent human being.  Recently, there were some fraudulent charges made to my card, so I called customer service to have them reversed.  Capital One definitely took care of the charges, that was not the issue.  The issue was that the people that they have managing the call center now don't talk to you like you are a person - they read from scripts and do that obnoxious placating thing where they just repeat what you have just said as if they "understand" but really have no idea what you are actually asking them. It took me 3 phone calls, 4 representatives and an hour and half out of my work day to get this figured out. It was very frustrating. One of the things I really liked about this card was that it was so easy to talk to somone in customer service and have a real conversation. It's obvious that they have outsourced their call centers, which would be fine, except now the reps talk to you like a small child instead of an adult person.

Let the fun began
Anonymous Cardholder

I just got an email my new venture card by capital one was on its way to 698 eq 702 with one other card under my belt I first paid down my other card and then waited for my new credit utilization to go down it take about a month or so to be reported then I applied I don't know the loan amount yet I choose venture card over chase because I felt I could get more points rather than jumping through hoops with limited categories with chase even if chase has partner affiliates because I have no categories I'll surpass the amount of points with with the venture card for capital one I gave it an overall rating of 4 stars only because I don't have it yet and really can't say anything good or bad

Don't count on CK recommendation. I was listed as Good. TU-692,EQ-702,ESP-710, FICO-695 and 8% CU with no derogatory remarks on my credit report. Cost me 3 hard pulls and 9 points off my current credit score. Trust your own judgment as CK isn't right all the time.

As Advertised!!!
geocrys Cardholder

Approval odds were "good" so I applied. TU 684 EX 693 After 5 years of rebuilding my credit with 5 or 6 cards with limits of $300 here and working up to $1200 there it was great to see that I could get back into mainstream cards. I applied and without hesitation I was approved for $20000. Obviously I haven't had an oppurtunity to use the rewards program yet but I will review it once I do. I highly recommend Capital One as I have had several of their cards and they have always done me right. Customer Service is great! Capital One will always be my first choice card. But now it will be my Venture Card!!!

I apped for this card based on the "Very Good" chances I had.  Not that I believe CK is always accurate with their predicitons, but I wanted to try this card for travels I have planned coming up.  I was approved for $20,000.  I thought I was going to pass out.  The letter states I will receive a "Welcome Kit" with my card soon.  I do not have "Excellent Credit" as the card recommends.  It was not an instant approval.  In fact it gave me the 7-10 day response, and I just knew it was goign to be a denial.  I received a letter in the mail about a week later (while the phone status check continued to say pending review).  I thought it was a statement, and did not open for a few days.  I read it while going through mail to trash and i couldn't believe what I was reading.  I've never had a card start this high, and my second highest card is HALF this limit.  At the time of app, I did get 3 hard pulls.  My TU was 687, EFX 667, and EXP 680 FICO 8.  CK 687 and EFX 664.  BK Ch 7 discharged 4/10, 2 collections paid 3+ years old, 3 recent accounts, 48% util.  One card is 98%.  I have a recently pc'd QS 1 MC 1500, and a QS Visa Platinum 2250 both had just received $1,000 and $1,500 CLI's within the last 2 weeks.
