  • Call the Rewards Center and redeem your points within 90 days of when you made the travel purchase. The redemption will be posted to your account.

Terms, Rates and Fees

The Spark Miles for Business Credit Card by Capital One comes with a 25.99% variable APR on all purchases and transfers, regardless of credit score. Cash advances have a 31.99% APR and come with a 3% or $3 fee (whichever is greater).

There’s a 34.40% penalty APR that occurs if you make a late payment. There’s also a late payment fee of $39.

For the first year, this card comes with no annual fee. After that, you must pay $95 each year.
With this card, you have a minimum credit line of $5,000. The maximum credit limit depends on creditworthiness. The monthly minimum payment amount is $15 or 1% of your current balance plus any fees or interest (whichever is greater).

Maximize Benefits and Avoid Fees

  • Take advantage of the welcome bonus. Spend at least $4,500 within 3 months of opening the account to get 50,000 bonus miles (estimated: $500). This is a first-year value.
  • Prioritize your miles reward. For an ongoing value, this card comes with 2x unlimited miles on any business-related purchase and 5x unlimited miles on purchases made through Capital One Travel. For example, if you spend $100,000 a month using this card, you could earn up to 2,400,000 miles rewards that year. This is roughly the equivalent of $24,000. Actual redemption value may vary.
  • Pay off the entire balance. Although the variable APR can be high, paying off your balance every month can prevent interest charges.
