The Capital One® Venture® Rewards Credit Card card offers 10X miles per dollar at Hotels.com/venture, a great offer that lasts through January 31st, 2020. You’ll also get 2X miles for every other purchase, and a 50,000-mile introductory bonus for spending $3,000 in the first three months.
Capital One designed this card for people with excellent credit, but if your scores fall in the “good” range you probably have a decent chance of being approved, depending on other factors that affect your creditworthiness.
This card is issued at the Visa Signature level, which comes with shopping benefits and travel perks like the Luxury Hotel Collection.
The Venture Rewards has a $95 annual fee, which is waived the first year. There are no foreign transaction fees.
Miles are worth 1 cent each when redeemed for travel purchases, which means you’ll be getting 10% cash back at Hotels.com and 2% back everywhere else. You can also transfer miles to a number of other airline loyalty programs, where you might find more value for them:
|Airline Partner||Transfer Rate|
|Aeromexico Club Premier||2:1.5|
|Air Canada Aeroplan
|Air France KLM Flying Blue
|Cathay Pacific Asia Miles
|EVA Infinity MileageLands
|Hainan Fortune Wings Club
|Qantas Frequent Flyer
|Qatar Privilege Club||2:1.5|
