Capital One is Bringing More Choices to Students by Launching New Student Rewards Credit Cards
In the run-up to the new academic year, Capital One recently added two decent products to their line-up of student credit cards, giving college students more opportunities to build credit and earn valuable rewards at the same time: the Capital One SavorOne Student Cash Rewards Credit Card and the Capital One Quicksilver Student Cash Rewards Credit Card.
Two new cards are student versions of their rewards counterparts: the Capital One SavorOne Credit Card and the Capital One Quicksilver Cash Rewards Credit Card, but they are aimed specifically at students and will help them qualify even with little or no credit history.
The Capital One SavorOne Student Cash Rewards Credit Card offers cardholders who have an active lifestyle an opportunity to earn 3% cash back rewards on dining, entertainment, popular streaming services (like Hulu, Disney+ and Netflix) and grocery stores (excluding superstores like Walmart and Target) and 1% on all other purchases. Plus, cardholders will also have a chance to earn 10% cash back on tickets at Vivid Seats, where they can buy tickets for concerts, sports and theater through January 2023.
The Capital One Quicksilver Student Cash Rewards Credit Card enables cardholders to earn unlimited flat-rate 1.5% cash back on every purchase every day. For a limited time, new SavorOne Student and Quicksilver Student customers can earn $50 when they spend $100 in the first three months of opening an account. New cardholders then can redeem their cash reward by getting account credit, using rewards to pay via PayPal, shopping and paying for Amazon purchases, spending rewards on gift cards, getting reimbursed for your purchases and redeem cash rewards on the travel portal.
With the addition of two new student cards, students can now choose from three Capital One student cards that offer cash back on purchases with no annual fee: SavorOne Student, Quicksilver Student and Journey Student.
The Journey Student Rewards from Capital One is not new, but still serves as a solid option in the range of student cards from the issuer. The card’s rewards rate is 1% cash back on all purchases, boosted to 1.25% when paying on time.
Moreover, all cash rewards cardholders, including SavorOne Student, Quicksilver Student and Journey users, will now earn unlimited 5% cashback on hotels and rental cars booked through Capital One Travel, where they’ll have access to Capital One’s best prices on thousands of trip options and no foreign transaction fees.
All cards have no annual fees, no minimums for cash back reward redemption, no rotating categories, and no complicated sign-ups. Additionally, cash back won’t expire for the life of the account, and there’s no limit to how much cardholders can earn.
