Capital One Transfer Partners: Airline Partner Introduction

Most experienced points and miles enthusiasts agree that transferring flexible currency, including Capital One Miles or Spark Miles, to partner loyalty programs often provides the greatest value. In recent years, Capital One Miles have become significantly more valuable, as Capital One has added transfer partners and improved transfer ratios.

In a related article, we provide details about how to transfer Capital One Miles to partners, address factors to consider in evaluating transfer options, discuss common questions and describe how to obtain Capital One Miles.

The Capital One Venture Rewards Card Bonus

If you’re looking to score some serious credit card reward points, you're in luck. The Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card comes with an impressive welcome bonus of 75,000 Capital One Miles. After spending $4,000 in the first three months, you can take to the sky with a fresh batch of rewards points.

Capital One’s 18 transfer partners give you plenty of options for booking a dream getaway.

New Benefits for Capital One Cards

Capital One is introducing some meaningful update to cards across their portfolio.

Let’s take a look at the details and how it impacts you.

Expanded Lounge Access

Capital One is expanding lounge access by adding access to an additional 100+ lounges worldwide.

Best Ways to Earn and Redeem LifeMiles

LifeMiles is a frequent flyer program of Avianca, Colombia’s biggest and oldest airline. Avianca is one of the Star Alliance member airlines so when you earn or redeem LifeMiles, you have access to the biggest airline alliance in the world and its extensive networks. Theoretically, you can get anywhere in the world with LifeMiles. 

The program has lots of fans, but it’s not the easiest to use. Airlines don’t grant all of their partners the same access to award space, and LifeMiles’ website also leaves a lot to be desired.

The Capital One Combo: One Of The Best Tools For Earning Miles

I’ve been a huge fan of card combinations that can really sweep you off your feet at the ability to rapidly earn tons of points without chasing a bonus. Combos like the Citi Premier® Card and the Citi® Double Cash Card, or the Chase Sapphire Reserve® and the Chase Freedom Unlimited®.

For the past few years, the Chase Sapphire Reserve® and Chase Freedom Unlimited® has been my absolute go to combo. However, with some recent updates I think another bank may be wooing me in.

No, it isn’t American Express, Bank of America, or Barclays.

6 Best Ways to Use Turkish Airlines Miles&Smiles

Similar to Disney’s “Big Hero 6” film, Turkish Miles&Smiles is easily one of the most underrated loyalty programs out there.

A Deep Dive into Emirates Skywards

I bet you 100 dirhams you’ve heard of Emirates, the flag carrier of the United Arab Emirates. I bet you 1,000 dirhams you haven’t heard much about Emirates Skywards, the Dubai-based carrier’s frequent-flyer program.

Ironically, Emirates continues to deliver the highest levels of service and therefore earns the highest levels of praise.

Best Ways to Australia with Points and Miles

Many travelers have Australia on their bucket list. There really is something for everyone, from the snorkeling and diving at the Great Barrier Reef to wineries, cool cities and spectacular beaches. 

The competition for the very limited number of award seats to get there, however, is fierce. Airlines’ frequent miler programs certainly don’t make it easy and finding award space on the nonstop flights from the U.S. could be quite a challenge.

Best Ways to Save Money on Airbnb

Right now, if you sign up for Airbnb through this link, you’ll get $50 off your first qualifying booking.

Many moons ago, Airbnb started as a home sharing platform and turned into a full-fledged hospitality behemoth. Sure, you can still get a room in someone’s house, or even a bed in a shared room, but most travelers are now using Airbnb as an alternative to a hotel stay.

You get more space, a kitchen, a separate living space and whatever amenities your pocketbook can afford.
