Swagbucks Adds Capital One Credit Cards To It’s Portal

Swagbucks has recently added an interesting offer to it’s portal.  They have added several Capital One cards to their list of offers.  By clicking through these links you are able to get a kickback in Swagbucks if you are approved for the card.  Depending on which card it is you can get anywhere from 5,000-7,500 Swagbucks which is essentially $50-$75.  It seems that they only have the personal cards available and not the amazing $2,000 Capital One Spark card bonuses.


Per Doctor of Credit the payouts are as follows:

  • For the Quicksilver, SavorOne, and VentureOne (all cards you should be passing on) you get 5,000 Swagbucks.
  • For the Venture and Savor card you get 7,500 Swagbucks.

I would go for the Savor card since the Venture card recently dropped from their 75,000 point offer to 50,000 points.  I would wait until the offer is increased again.

Be warned that Swagbucks does have it’s tracking issues from time to time.  I have had issues in the past but I still use them sometimes when the deal is just too good to pass up.  This may be one of those times and no one knows how long it will be available.

If you currently do not have a Swagbucks account you can use Shawn’s referral link to sign up if you would like.

Capital One Issues

A couple of things to remember about Capital One credit cards.  They pull from all 3 bureaus for each application.  I don’t tend to think that much of this but others like to make a big deal about it so be aware of that.

Capital One is VERY inquiry sensitive so many of us struggle to get approved.  They only allow 1 application every 6 months. Be mindful of that timeline if you have recently applied for a card.


If you had your eye on a Capital One Savor card and think you can get approved then now may be the time to go for it.  There is a chance you could snag $75 on top of your $500 welcome offer.  I would hold off on the Venture card until the better bonus returns. The other cards are not worth the hard pull.  Remember that the Capital One Spark cards’ increased offer is only around until the 28th if you were considering that 200,000 point offer.

  1. Has anyone actually gotten paid by Swagbucks? I completed this offer and was approved for a card 9 days ago. But still nothing from Swagbucks.

    • I have not heard any data points on it. Have you reached out to them? They have issues on tracking from time to time.
