Capital One Venture Card
In today’s travel environment, Venture offers unique value and unparalleled flexibility. Unlike many airline or hotel travel cards, the Capital One Venture Card earns unlimited double miles on every purchase, everyday, which can then be redeemed for all types of travel, including the kind of travel that people are taking right now. This is different from many airline or hotel cards, which typically only offer elevated earn in select travel categories.
Venture cardholders can use their miles in a way that best suits their lifestyle and needs. Unlike many leading airline or hotel cards, Venture customers can redeem their miles for any recent, travel-related purchase (such as vacation rentals, flights with any airline, hotels, rental cars, cruises, etc.). Plus, Venture is one of the only travel cards where you can use your miles to redeem for vacation rentals (Airbnb, VRBO, etc.)
In addition, Venture cardholders can transfer their miles to 19 different travel loyalty programs, including 16 airlines and three hotel loyalty programs. There’s also a Capital One Lounge network that is launching soon, with access for cardholders, although we need more details on that part with pricing.
One downside to Capital One cards in general, is that the issuer will normally pull all three credit bureaus when you apply. You should be able to limit this to just two pulls if you freeze Experian or Transunion.
We have seen a 100K bonus in the past with a $20K spending requirement. So this is probably a better option with only $4K in spending required within the first 3 months. The same offer is also available through referrals, so if a friend or family member has the card, they can refer and get a bonus as well.
Capital One Venture is also a good everyday card since it earns 2X miles on all purchases. It also comes with some additional travel benefits that make it well worth the annual fee, at least for the first year.
