Rewards Redemption

There are several ways to redeem your cash back rewards. One option is to request a rewards redemption in the form of a statement credit or physical check. Another option is to set up automatic cashback redemption once you earn a certain amount of points or at specific times of the year. Alternatively, you can redeem points for gift cards.

Terms, Rates and Fees

The Spark Cash Plus Credit Card by Capital One is a charge card that comes with a $150 annual fee, a $3 or 3% cash advance fee (whichever is greater), and a 2.99% late payment fee of the unpaid amount. There is no annual percentage rate (APR) or interest rate.
This card does not allow for balance transfers or access checks, which may be limiting for some users. Although there’s no exact credit limit, users may only charge the card based on their credit profile, spending behavior, and payment history.
Users must pay off the full balance every month or else get hit with late fees.

Maximize Benefits and Avoid Fees

There are several ways to maximize your benefits with this card, including:

  • Refund the annual fee. An ongoing value of this card is that you can effectively skip the annual fee by spending enough money during the year.
  • Pay the full balance each month. Although there’s no APR, you’ll be charged for any remaining balance if you don’t pay it off on time.
  • Get the welcome bonus. A first-year value with this credit card is the one-time $1,200 welcome bonus. Spend enough money in the first 3 months to qualify.
  • Use Capital One Travel. If you make transactions through Capital One Travel, you can earn higher cash back rewards.
  • Use the card on everyday purchases. Another ongoing value with this card is the 2% unlimited cash back with regular purchases. As long as you can pay off the balance in full each month, these rewards can add up. Say, for example, you spend $100,000 a month on this card. Your estimated annual cash back rewards could be $24,000.
