Platinum MC Upgrade to Venture 1....push for Venture 2?

I sent a secure message to Capital One and asked if I was eligible to upgrade my Platinum MC to the Venture 1 and found out I'm eligible! I had no idea that was even possible and wouldn't have ever known if it wasn't for this forum. 

 

Anyway, within their message it said I could perform the upgrade myself, however, when I went to check under the 'my features' section of the accounts tab it said i wasn't eligible for an upgrade. Called the CSR and found out that I am eligible for a Venture 1 and a QS. I already have a QS and was interested in the upgrade to the Venture 1 for the travel points. Unfortunately I called pretty late and the department I need is closed until tomorrow morning so I'll call then.

 

I know I'm going to inquire about the Venture 1 upgrade, but should I ask about the Venture 2 or not push it? Would asking for the Venture 2 require a 3x HP?

 

I didn't app for the Venture because I already had a major app spree last month and my scores tanked a bit from all the inquiries, but they're starting to rebound as accounts are reporting...though still fairly low anyway. Just took a shot in the dark asking about an upgrade since I never heard of it before.

 

Any insight would be appreciated.

Venture....2?

 

No. Don't PC into that unless you like throwing away signup bonuses and paying for the privilege.

LOL - I saw somewhere that someone referred to the Venture with the 2 miles rewards as Venture 2 so wasn't sure what I should call it to differentiate. That's what I was wondering too as I wasn't sure if they would honor any sign-up bonuses if I PC'ed my account. 

 

Thank you!

This is Capital One we are speaking of... Smiley Indifferent

Best way to acquire the Venture is to apply for it. The signup bonus makes it worth it.
