The Capital One Savor is a Mastercard, not a Visa; it is a World Elite Mastercard, to be specific. That means it offers the Mastercard network’s highest level of benefits. Notable perks include up to $1 million in travel accident insurance and $1,500 per trip in trip cancellation insurance. The card’s extended warranty benefit also adds up to two extra years to an item’s original warranty and gives as much as $10,000 in coverage. Plus, there’s rental car insurance, roadside assistance, purchase protection and more.
Frequent travelers will enjoy the Capital One Savor’s wide global acceptance. And there’s $0 foreign transaction fees. That means you’ll be able to use this card abroad without having to pay a surcharge on everything you buy. Cards with foreign transaction fees typically charge an extra 1% to 3% on international purchases.
The Capital One Savor provides plenty of its own rewards and perks to complement Mastercard’s array of benefits. For example, because it’s designed for people who like to go out on the town, the Capital One Savor offers 4% cash back on dining and entertainment purchases. It also gives 2% cash back at grocery stores.
Capital One Quicksilver could either be a Visa or a Mastercard. Capital One issues cards on both networks, but there is no way to choose which network your new card will be on.
The card network for your new card isn’t based on your credit score, card terms, rewards or credit limits either. A card network is simply the company that helps process credit card transactions and determines where a card is accepted. Having said that, both Visa and Mastercard benefit from the most extensive worldwide acceptance, so you’ll have no problems using your Capital One Quicksilver, regardless of its card network.… read full answer
