How to use your Capital One Venture Miles
Capital One credit cards may be divided into four groups: Credit-building cards, Cash Rewards cards, Business Rewards cards, and Travel Rewards cards. On Capital One’s website, prospective clients can easily choose which credit card to apply for by checking which best applies to their lifestyle. The benefits and recommended credit levels for each card is listed on the website.
The Venture Rewards card is unquestionably one – if not the top – credit card of Capital One. This is a “traveller’s card” – best suited for those who’d rather have miles instead of cashback. Although, you also have the option to redeem your miles for cash back, or gift cards, but travel redemptions get you the most value per mile. There are two types of Capital One Venture Rewards Cards: Venture Rewards and VentureOne Rewards. Both offer a consistent number of miles per dollar on every purchase you make daily. One key difference is that the latter has no annual fee.
Capital One’s Venture Rewards may be redeemed several ways. You can choose to cover your travel purchases with it, purchase gift cards, redeem cash and so on. Plus, there is no fee for the transfers of Capital One miles to an airline or hotel travel partner.
