The Capital One Venture Rewards card is a flexible option for those who don’t like spending with just one airline or hotel. You’ll earn 2X miles per dollar on all purchases, get some time and money saving perks, and through January 2020, earn 10X miles per dollar at hotels.com/venture.
The Capital One® Venture® Rewards Credit Card card offers 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.
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 the equivalent of 2% back when you redeem for statement credit. 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|
