Capital One Venture Card’s New 50k Bonus Worth $500

Capital One issues a travel rewards card called the Capital One Venture Card. It comes with a newly elevated 50,000 bonus points offer for spending $3,000 on your new card within three months of account opening.

The Capital One Venture Card earns a type of reward they call a mile, but there's no outsized value to be found as they're not like an airline mile you can redeem on award space. One Capital One mile = 1 cent towards travel expenses.

I’ve Had My Arrival Plus For Almost a Year. Now What?

I already knew the answer to that question before I called Barclaycard last week. But I decided to call anyways for the sake of curiosity, and to possibly help out someone else that may be in the same position with their Barclaycard Arrival Plus that is actually considering keeping it open.

I want to be able to get the sign up bonus on the Arrival Plus again, and the general consensus is that you can, but your previous card must be closed for at least six months before applying again.
