CAP1 upgrade email

 

I also have an 'upgrade' to the cash reweards 1% and .5 bonus...  I can't see a reason that the miles card would be better then the cash.  I'll be honest travel cards don'

t make sense to me :/

Capital One Quicksilver- $5,000 (Thanks Cap1 Executive Office <3) | Chase Freedom - $7,100 | Chase Amazon -$1,000 | Priceline Visa -$10,000 | US Bank Cash+ - $18,200 (I know what an odd limit) | Fidelity Amex -$10,000 | Sallie Mae- $10,000 | Walmart $15,000 | DCU Platinum $12,000 | Discover IT - $7,500 | Amex EveryDay - $10,000  | Citi DoubleCash - $15,000

Re: CAP1 upgrade email

Travel cards are great if you travel, but the better ones are the ones that give you points to transferbto a FF program or hotel rewards. The ventureone is a joke imho, so is the regular venture. Wont let you use your miles unless you have enough to cover the whole charge.

The cash rewards card is great though, and I love it. The rewards post instantly and can be claimed however often you like. Im waiting for my anniversary bonus in june. It should be something like 70 or 80 dollars :-)

You're the first person I've heard of that got an auto PC email though. I had to use "chat now" to get my PC.

Congrats!

I think they realize that they help people grow and are not necessarily growing along with customers.  I think my current card is very valuable.  Their no FTF is HUGE.  Not many card issuers offer that with no annual fee.

Interesting.  So you can redeem as cash back at 1.25%?

I agree!

 

Ultimately it seems like a no brainer to do the 1.5 vs 1.25

 

I wish they'd let me upgrade to the 2pts per dollar venture :'(

Re: CAP1 upgrade email

With the venture(and ventureone) I'm pretty sure you get half value if you do it as a statement credit as opposed to against travel.

I truly hope that this is the case, I spent 5 years with a 500$ card and finally asked for an increase and they gave me another 500. A year later I tried for more and they told me no and that I should apply for another card, so I applied for another one and got a 1k limit on a cash rewards mc, finally found this forums and read about everything and ended up going the EO route and got a 1k push on my Platinum MC and they auto cli'd my cash rewards with another 500$ but honestly I do feel like it's pulling teeth with them when I apped for chase they gave me a 2500$ cl. I'll be back on Cap1 in November for my CLI's I really want their cards to grow with me, I've been loyal to them for almost 8 years now it's time they work with me I'd say.
