Because it’s a cash-back card, the more purchases you make with the QuicksilverOne card, the more value it will provide.
Beyond that, we also put together a list of some extra tips to help you get the most out of the card.
Quick Earning Tips
Tip #1: If you’re just using this card, put as many expenses on it as possible.
On the other hand, if your strategy is to combine cards, use the Capital One card to earn 1.5% when your other options provide a lower earning percentage.
Tip #2: Don’t leave cash-back on the table. Always pay your bill on time, or you risk losing your cash-back for that billing cycle. Plus, you may be able to increase your credit line when you make your first 5 payments on time.
Tip #3: You won’t accrue any foreign transaction fees with the card. Take advantage of this benefit and use the card for all international travel.
An added perk? The card has an EMV chip, which will make your transactions abroad hassle-free.
Tip #4: In some cases, you can transfer Capital One cash-back rewards between accounts. Putting all of your cash-back on one card may be beneficial.
You can request cash-back at any time, either as statement credit or in the form of a check. Additionally, you can even set a specific redemption threshold to receive your cash-back automatically when it reaches $25, $50, $100, or $200.
Another option is to select a date on the calendar to receive your cash-back. To set up a redemption schedule, go to capitalone.com or call the Rewards Center.
After setting these up, you’ll still be able to request cash-back when you want to. If you want to change your automatic redemption schedule, you can of course do that too.
You can redeem cash-back earned with the QuicksilverOne card for merchandise or gift cards by visiting capitalone.com or calling the Redemption Center.
However, we don’t recommend this because the value decreases considerably when you choose any redemption option other than cash-back.
Also, when your eligible card is linked to PayPal, you can checkout with PayPal and redeem your cash-back at a rate of $1 to $1.
