Credit Card Offers

Published on April 15th, 2018 | by William Charles


[Targeted] Capital One Venture 60,000/100,000 Point Bonus

Update: Some people got even bigger offers for up to 100,000 points.

The Offer

No direct link, sent out via snail mail

  • Capital One has sent out a targeted offer for 60,000 points after $3,000 in spend within the first three months from card opening on the Capital One Venture card.

Card Details

  • $95 annual fee; fee is waived the first year
  • Card earns 2x points everywhere (the equivalent of 2% everywhere)
  • No foreign transaction fees
  • Visa Signature benefits

Our Verdict

The standard bonus on this card is 40,000 miles. There is currently a public offer of 50,000 miles. Points are worth 1¢ each when redeeming to offset travel costs or in gift card redemption (e.g. Amazon). The downside to this bonus is the card is issued by Capital One and they do a hard pull on all three credit bureaus. Keep in mind, you can freeze your Experian or Transunion and limit the pulls to just two, plus a lot of us don’t care about hard pulls much anymore.

I thought I saw on TV that they’ve teamed up for 10x the points with… do you know anything about that Doc? Jesus walks with me!!

Yes. They have ended Spotify affiliation and replacing it with HOTELS.COM. You can refer to this post

Anyone over 10+/24 get approved for this? – but all the linked pages have been taken down from what I can tell.

Check the card match tool to see if you’re pre-qualified. I’m lol/24 and am pre-qualified.

Got approved several months ago with 10+ hp on both EX and EQ

So tempting. Would be really useful this summer for a few $100 hotels. But I’m approaching return to 5/24, this would allow me only 3 slots once I get there. What to do. ..

I think I only want / need 3 or 4 chase cards under 5/24. I can only get 1 swa card and I have sapphire within 24 months, so it’s just a swa, a United, a freedom, and maybe the new Marriott (if I can get approved twice at the end).

I got this in the mail but with $4000 spend to get the 60k

FWIW: I was denied for this card 2 months ago at 15/24, got the targeted offer in the mail for 60k and figured I’d have better odds after being targeted and applied again and was denied again. Oof.

I just got an offer in the mail yesterday for 100,000 bonus miles with $5000 spend within 3 months. Says to apply by 6/1/18.

whats your existing relationship like w cap1? this wasnt after a mortgage was it? usually the 100k venture was for new loan people but anywho… yeah. id actually be just fine with capital one venture if its 60 or 100k points!

I still think that the underwriting seems to be quite more different than just a basic cold app. Ive seen about 10 personal acquaintances with stellar credit get denied for the 750 spark and 1k spark cards…….yet…3 of them ended up getting approved a month later with a regular version! AND 1 of those who was denied for the non targeted 1k, was approved for the non targeted 750$ spark! OK……………….

Anyone ever have luck going to a cap1 bank branch to push for something like this????

jf, I don’t have any relationship with them. Didn’t apply for a mortgage either. It just randomly came in the mail. I don’t recall ever getting an offer even close to that in the mail from them before. Maybe they’re trying to compete with the other larger card issuers?

I’m wondering if these mailers have a reservation number system like the Spark 100k offer. We can easily alter the reservationNumber in the Spark’s URL to get working applications.
Please alter the last few digits of the reservation number and share it with us! Thanks.

I got 75,000 points for $5000 spend. Debating if I should use a 5/24 slot.

Is the bonus once per life?

No, cap one are churnable, but that offer is not public.

Are these transferable? My SO got the offer and when I put in the info online, the application came up blank

Does anybody know the redemption rate for Walmart gift cards? 1:1?

Why do a lot of us not care about hard pulls much anymore?

I’d love to join that club, please convince me not to care 🙂

That’s what I’m wondering as well. (Actually the only reason I was reading comments).

I care about hard pulls as long as the banks care about hard pulls. I would also love to be convinced not to care.:)

100k offers!? My wife has been getting the 50k offers (before it was public) and just received the 60k offer. Zero relationship with Cap1. I was going to jump on it but now I wonder if we should hold out.


Chatted with Cap One to see if they can find an offer for me. No dice. I’ve had a Quicksilver with them for a while and find zero use for it. Oh well. $1,000 would be sweet though.

I was just approved for this card last month for the 50k point bonus. Is it possible for them to match the bonus?

Highly disappointing: got the prescreened 75k offer in mail, have a 815+ score but still got declined … this is really bad since they did do 3 agency pull just for declining the application.

Stay Away.

Reason given by the bank in letter:
1. no checking or savings account at the bank
2. you pay off your balance in credit cards too early and maintain low average balance …

this is disappointing.

Wow those reasons seem stupid. Will think again about applying for this card

‘We will give you a card, but only if you maintain big balances and pay us juicy interest’
