Capital One Improves Savor Cards

Capital One just upgraded the bonus earning rates for two of us most popular cards.

Capital One Savor 

The Capital One Savor Cash Rewards Credit Card previously earned:

  • 4% on dining and entertainment
  • 2% on groceries

However, it just got upgraded to the following rates:

  • 4% on dining and entertainment
  • 4% on streaming services, including Hulu, Disney+ and Netflix
  • 3% on groceries

Streaming is a category where most people have pretty limited spending so the 4% back can only go so far. But with so many streaming services now out there the savings could add up over the span of 12 months to help you offset the annual fee.

Let’s say you are spending $100 a month on streaming services. That’s $1,200 a year and 4% of that comes out to $48. The annual fee is $95 so with that bonus category alone you can offset about half of the annual fee. Not bad.

But of course the real value with this card is the 4% back on dining and entertainment. Purchasing expensive tickets to one event could get you some dramatic cash back savings (sometimes up to 8%) and foodies who eat out a lot will quickly accumulate tons of cash back month after month.

Capital One SavorOne

The Capital One SavorOne Cash Rewards Credit Card is also getting an upgrade in the bonus category department.

The Capital One Savor One previously earned:

  • 3% on dining and entertainment
  • 2% on groceries

However, it just got upgraded to the following rates:

  • 3% on dining and entertainment
  • 3% on streaming services, including Hulu, Disney+ and Netflix
  • 3% on groceries

Getting 3% on all of those categories is really good for a no annual fee credit card. It’s definitely more of a strong contender with the Chase Freedom cards with the increased bonus earnings.

Final word

A lot of times when you see new bonus categories come in and get increased there is a bit of a shuffle and some bonus categories drop. That is not the case this time with Capital One so that is a major plus for the new changes.
