Capital One has increased the sign-up bonus for the Capital One® Venture® Rewards Credit Card to earn 50,000 miles (worth $500 toward travel) after spending $3,000 in the first 3 months. Previously, the bonus was 40,000 miles with the same initial spending requirements. At the same time the annual fee, which is waived for the first year, was increased from $59 to $95.
The $500 sign-up bonus alone is a good reason to consider seizing this offer. Since the Venture card earns 2% toward travel on all spending, many people may also want to use it as their daily driver. If you’re wondering how the Venture® card will stack up against other cards over various timeframes, you can use our tool for finding the best reward cards for your spending and preferences.
Keep in mind that Capital One seems to have a limit of two personal cards per person. They also seem to limit people to one new Capital One card every six months. So if you’ve opened a Capital One card account within the last six months, it would be advised to wait until you’ve got at least a six month gap.
