The extra earning is available for new and existing customers, and it will likely be extended past that ending date.

Capital One Savor Card Now Earns 8% at Vivid Seats

Back in December, the Capital One Savor Card received a Postmates perk as well. The card is already one of the best credit card for restaurants. The card was released last year, targeting foodies. It became much better once earning rate at restaurants was increased to 4% and a $500 bonus was added. But there’s also a $95 annual fee which is waived the first year.

Here’s what you get with the Capital One Savor Card:

  • Earn 4% cashback on dining and entertainment
  • Earn 2% cashback on groceries
  • 1% cashback on all other purchases
  • 8% cashback on all purchases made with Vivid Seats
  • Free Postmates Unlimited
  • No Foreign Transaction Fees
  • Price Protection –  Find a lower price within 120 days and you could be reimbursed for the price difference.
  • Additional warranty protection at no charge on eligible items that are purchased with your credit card.

  1. Capital One Savor Card Rewards
    At its inception, I applied for and received a Capital One Savor Card. I heavily relied on the fact that this card was conceived and promoted based on the fact that it provided it’s users the ability to earn 4% Rewards on purchases of “DINING and ENTERTAINMENT”. I have now found out that “category code” that the merchant supplies Capital One, determines the reward level of benefits that the Savor Card will pay the cardholder. Specifically, two of the merchants among many others, that I question are NETFLIX and DIRECTV. These items were classified as “phone/cable” not Entertainment ! My purchase of both Netflix and DirecTV were purchased directly from the merchant and included no phone or cable cost packaging. Both of these merchants now pay a rewards of 1% not 4% !

    After contacting Capital One, I was told that they had to go by the code provided by the merchant and felt “no responsibility” to evaluate that code as to it’s correctness.

    Finding that NETFLIX and DIRECTV are not classified as ENTERTAINMENT seems to be a valid error that needs to be changed, if Capital One continues to promote the Savor Card to reward its cardholders 4% on the Entertainment. I would assume that if this is not corrected, a Class Action suit will eventually would be pursued by cardholders.

    • Sadly that’s the case with many bonus categories. It really depends on the merchant code. I would have expected Netflix at least to be classified as entertainment.
