The Capital One® Savor® Cash Rewards Credit Card offers 4% back on dining (and entertainment), 2% at grocery stores, and 1% everywhere else.
That’s a great initial bonus and it’s really strong rewards for eating (and going) out. There’s an intense competition in the card rewards space for dining, and this is one of the stronger entries.
Resy is a lower cost alternative for restaurants than OpenTable, but they tend to have newer trendier spots that are filling up on their own; places that don’t need to pay for OpenTable’s eyeballs and just need software to manage reservations so customers don’t have to call in and no one has to stand by answering the phone.
Now there’s another addition in the entertainment space to balance out the new benefits: 8% back at the Vivid Seats online ticket marketplace for buying and selling tickets to concerts, sporting, and theater events.
It’s great to see how aggressive Capital One has been, adding benefits to their Capital One® Venture® Rewards Credit Card like TSA/Global Entry application fee credit and even adding transfers to airline frequent flyer programs.
Here’s another great example of adding something without taking anything away, something we don’t see enough of these days.
