No, the Capital One Savor’s $500 bonus is not available anymore. It was a temporary promotion that ended in May 2019. Cardholders had to spend $3,000 within the first 3 months after opening an account to receive the bonus. It’s not clear whether the $500 promotion will ever come back.
Although you can’t get a $500 bonus with Capital One Savor, the card’s current bonus is still substantial. Right now, you can get $300 for spending $3,000 in the first 3 months.
