The Capital One Platinum Secured Credit Card cash advance fee is 3% (min $10) per transaction, whichever is higher.

If you take out a cash advance on a secured card, you are essentially borrowing the cash from your own deposit, with fees and interest.

Your Capital One cash advance limit is a portion of your card’s credit limit, usually 30% to 50% of your total credit limit. These limits are individualized, however, so you may have a different portion allotted for cash advances than other Capital One customers.

Unfortunately, no credit card offers free cash advances. All credit cards charge interest on cash advances, at least. And that interest always starts accruing the moment you take out the advance. But if you get a card with no fee and pay off the balance right after doing a cash advance, you shouldn’t have to deal with much in the way of extra costs.
Some of the best cash advance credit cards also offer some excellent rewards. For example, the PNC Premier Traveler card offers 30,000 miles for spending $3,000 in the first 3 months. And it gives 2 miles / $1 on all purchases.
The PenFed Platinum Rewards Visa offers 5 points per $1 spent on gas and electric vehicle charging stations, 3 points per $1 at supermarkets and restaurants, 3 points per $1 on cable, satellite and other pay television/radio/streaming services, as well as 1 point per $1 on all other purchases. And it gives a 15,000 points for spending $1,500 in the first 3 months. Only PenFed members can get the card, but anyone can join PenFed, all you need to do is simply fund a savings account with at least $5.
