Crapital One Venture Rewards?

* 2 miles per dollar on every purchase

* 10,000 bonus miles when you spend $1,000 in the first 3 months

 

Seems like another carrot and stick shenanigan, just like Citi's waiver of it's $60AF "IF" you spend $2400 annually. Instead of annual fee waivers, they are rewarding with miles to encourage more purchases.

CITI's B.S. also applies to non-rewards cards. An AF on a rewards card is not unusual.

True. AF's on rewards cards (esp. mileage programs) are the rule.

 

However, this venture rewards card is using different tactics than citi, yet the end game is the same; using "their" card for most of your purchases.

Hey, such rewards or FF cards make sense when the first year's AF is waived, and you're given bonus miles. For those who have the time and inclination to use the cards for only one year before cancelling, the deals are there to be had. I'm just not into the game..........

If the miles are equal to 0.01 per mile, I will likely go for this card since my current cap one 2% cash back ends in may. After the first year the AF maybe reduced\ removed if I call in.

+1 It's still Crap1.

 

Even if the deal is on the level, this is Crap1 we're talking about.

You'll get it for a few months, then the shenanigans start. Remember.

 

This. Is. Crap. One.

I have to agree with that GEORGE, but Crap1 has become known

for letting your limit rot and/or CLDs. Not what I would call a stellar review.

I'll never do business with Cap. 1 again. Low limits and substandard rewards, and frequent changes to rewards structure and redemptions.

 

Looks to me like lipstick on a pig. I wouldn't apply for it.

+1 its CrapOne

 

My card has been stagnant for 5 years with no CLI. I called a couple of times asking them to convert to a different card, but same "unavailable" crap. My FAKO is 760+.

Crap1 is the same company that "started accepting Customer Initiated CLIs on April 1st",

but also is still not accepting customer initiated CLI requests.

 

Do you want THESE people to have fangs into your finances?

 

May as well go with BOA and KNOW youre going to get the shaft...lol

Let's not forget that in addition to it being Crap One, it's also a definite THREE HARD PULL APPLICATION.

 

They are barely worth one hard pull, let alone three.....

Not a myth for me and everyone that I know that made the mistake of applying with them.

 

Roll the dice and take your chances with the myth......

FOR A FACT...I GOT 2 HARDS

 

Did not even have EXPERIAN FROZEN at that time

 

Might have changed since I last applied

 

I have no idea

 

A few people even got only 1 HARD and didn't have any FROZEN

these days crap1 is always 3 hards all the time.

 

the main reason I am curious about this card is the zero percent FETF.

You should know you can't say "all the time" around here without "someone" saying "it didn't happen this one time". We all know that if you don't get all 3 hit when applying for cap1 it's a fluke but some won't admit it.

 

I apped for 2 cap1 cards, 3 inq's each.

DW apped for 1, 3 inqs

DS applied for 1, 3 inqs.
