In some cases, the best course of action may be to spend a bit of time improving your credit score before applying for the Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card. You need good credit to satisfy the card’s credit score requirement. But barely passing that test probably won’t give you great approval odds overall.
Having said that, keep in mind that all Capital One credit limits ultimately depend on your annual income and overall creditworthiness, so it’s hard to say what anyone’s limit will be without knowing those things first.
