No Annual Fee

FM Mini Review: Decent welcome bonus for a fee-free card, but other cards offer better rewards for ongoing spend.

Card Type: Visa Signature or Platinum


Earning rate: 1.25X everywhere. Through 1/31/21: 5X Uber Eats.

Noteworthy perks: Redeem miles for travel at value of 1 cent per mile ⚬ Convert "miles" to airline miles at a (mostly) 2 to 1.5 ratio ⚬ No foreign transaction fees


The Capital One VentureOne Rewards card earns only 1.25 miles per dollar. Miles are worth 1 cent each when redeemed for travel. In other words, this card effectively earns 1.25% in rewards. That's not very good.

Things get a little more interesting now that Capital One Miles are transferable to airline miles. Since the transfer ratio is 2 to 1.5, you can think of this card as earning your choice of 1.25% everywhere OR 0.94 airline miles everywhere. That's NOT a good earning rate, but it's worth noting.

More information about Capital One transfer partners can be found here.

Bottom Line

Good choice for a welcome offer, but an awful choice to use for spend.

Application Tips

Capital One Application Tips

  • 6 month rule: Must wait 6 months after applying for a Capital One card before applying for another one.

  • 2 card limit: Conventional wisdom and user experience has been that you can have at most 2 Capital One consumer cards, but according to application terms it may be possible to have up to 5. You may be limited to 2 of their rewards cards. Note that this limit does not apply to Capital One co-branded cards like the Kohl's charge card.

  • Get Same Card Again: There is no known rule against getting the same card and bonus again even if you still have the card open.

  • Hard inquiries usually get issued through all 3 credit bureaus
