One launched the SavorOne Rewards for Students and Quicksilver
Rewards for Students credit cards, student versions of Capital
One's flagship credit cards designed to provide valuable rewards
and more choice for customers beginning their credit journey.
"Being new to credit and being able to enjoy rewards don't have
to be mutually exclusive," said Daniel

including access to credit and the benefit of rewards, we're paving
the way for a more inclusive and rewarding credit experience."

popular streaming services and at grocery stores, and 1% cash back
on all other purchases. Plus, cardholders can earn 8% cash back on
Vivid Seats through January 2023.
The Quicksilver Student credit card enables cardholders to earn
unlimited 1.5% cash back on every purchase, every day, just like
the flagship card. Both cards have no annual fees, no minimums for
cash back reward redemption, no rotating categories, and no
complicated sign-ups. Additionally, cash back won't expire for the
life of the account, and there's no limit to how much cardholders

overwhelmingly pointed to unlimited cash back on all purchases and
no annual fee," said Ralph Haro, Vice President, US Card, at

legacy of rewards offered with our flagship cards, and we are proud
to extend these best-in-class benefits to serve the financial needs
of students across the country."
