One of the things I like about Capital One is how many new partnerships they’ve had over the past few years, which adds value for cardmembers. Over the past couple of years we’ve seen valuable partnerships with Uber, Spotify, and hotels.com.

Now Capital One has announced a useful partnership on one of their great cards.

Basics of the Capital One Savor

Capital One recently introduced the Capital One® Savor® Cash Rewards Credit Card, which is the premium version of the Capital One SavorOne Card.

The card offers a welcome bonus of $500 cash back after spending $3,000 on purchases within the first three months. The $95 annual fee is even waived for the first year.

The Savor has some great bonus categories, especially for those who dine out a lot. The card earns unlimited 4% cash back on dining and entertainment, 2% at grocery stores, and 1% on all other purchases

Capital One Savor & Postmates partnership

Beginning today (December 11, 2018), Capital One Savor cardholders receive a complimentary monthly Postmates Unlimited membership through December 2019. You simply have to pay with the Savor Card and then you’ll get a statement credit for the $9.99 monthly fee.

The card already earns 4% back in dining, which includes Postmates, so this is an opportunity to earn 4% back and get a further awesome benefit.

For those of you not familiar, Postmates Unlimited is a monthly membership that offers free delivery from more than 200,000 merchants. With Postmates Unlimited, customers get $0 delivery fees on orders over $15. They also never pay blitz pricing or get hit with minimum basket fees.

Bottom line

As I’ve written about in the past, I’m a huge fan of Postmates, and use it all the time. I’m a Postmates Unlimited subscriber, and find it to be well worth it. So personally I’d consider this to be a ~$120 value over the next year, which more than covers the annual fee on the card even after the first year.

Personally I don’t have the Capital One Savor, and that’s simply because I value airline miles and hotel points over cash back. Here’s a post with what I consider to be the best cards for dining.

I like earning 3x points on dining globally with the Chase Sapphire Reserve®, and 4x points on US restaurants with the American Express® Gold Card.

What do you make of the new Capital One Savor Postmates partnership?

  1. @Lucky haven’t you felt more inclined towards cash back cards recently? I get that 6.8>4 and don’t get me wrong, miles are probably still a better deal than cash back, but over time it seems that it has become increasingly difficult to redeem them. Add significant devaluation of hotels and FF programs into the equation and I get the feeling that cash back will sooner rather than later make more sense than earning miles and points with credit cards. Curious to know your opinion

  2. I am with Ben Holz. Miles have more potential…but tons of risk. Random devaluations. Lack of availability. Sudden partner changes.

    Cash back is cash back. 4% every time is pretty damn attractive, and Im thinking of ditching my Prestige when renewal comes back and just sitting back and enjoying the free cash.

  3. @jjj well if you’re talking about the Prestige I’m thinking of which soon will have 5x on dining, certainly that exceeds 4% CB any way you slice it

  4. @St, I was a fan of prestige when it had a great transfer to AA. With that gone, the points are worth much less and I would rather have the cash going forward. Of course, I will use the Prestige at 5x until my renewal fee hits in April or May
