Capital One Rewards Miles and How to Use Capital One Travel

Capital One—like American Express, Chase and Citi—issues credit cards that offer cash back or flexible currency rewards. 

Capital One’s flexible currency, alternately referred to as Venture Miles on consumer cards or Spark Miles on business cards, can be used in different ways, such as buying gift cards, erasing previous purchases, purchasing travel through Capital One Travel or transferring to partners.

Capital One is spicing it up with some new changes to its rewards program. You’ll see a new transfer partner, elevated transfer bonuses and even new cancellation options to keep you feeling confident when booking flights.

New Transfer Partner

First up, Capital One is adding a brand-new transfer partner, Virgin Red. If you aren’t familiar with Virgin Red, it’s Virgin Group’s new rewards club program that launched in the United States last fall.

Booking economy flights with Capital One Venture Miles has become an important part of our travel budgeting strategy since they’ve added a suite of helpful transfer partners.

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.

U.S. Bank Triple Cash Rewards Card
