Reportedly, it is set at a maximum $5,000.
To be approved for this card, card applicants must have an average credit score. While Capital One doesn’t disclose credit score requirements, an average score is generally considered to fall between 630 to 689, although some report being approved with scores in the mid-500s.
Capital One does identify average credit as applying to a consumer who has defaulted on a loan in the past 5 years or has limited credit history. Limited credit history would include those who have “had my own credit card or other credit for less than 3 years (including students, people new to the U.S., or authorized users on someone else’s credit card).”
While the Capital One Quicksilver Card has no annual fee and a 0% APR offer, it earns the same cash back amount (1.5%) as the QuicksilverOne Card. Both cards share nearly identical benefits. However, the APR is higher on the Capital One QuicksilverOne Card, and it does have an annual fee. The QuicksilverOne Card requires an average credit score, while the Quicksilver Card requires a “good” score.
If you have good or better credit, the Quicksilver is the better option. If you have fair, average or limited credit, QuicksilverOne increases your odds of approval.
