Earn Up To 100,000 Miles On The Capital One Venture Card!

Signup bonus:

For a limited time only, you can earn 50,000 Capital One miles for opening this card and spending $3,000 in 3 months. You will get an additional 50,000 miles for spending another $17,000 in 12 months.

As you earn 2 miles per dollar everywhere, that’s a potential 140,000 miles for spending $20,000 in a year. 140K miles can be used for $1,400 of travel, dining, or gift cards. Or it can be transferred into 105K airline miles.

The previous signup bonus offers on this card was 50K miles for spending $3,000 in 3 months.

Note that Capital One pulls and reports to all 3 of your credit reports. Capital One typically awards signup points even if you have the card in the past. It can be difficult to get approved for more than 1 Capital One card every 6 months.


Annual fee: 

There is a $95 annual fee for the primary card and no annual fee for additional cardholders.


Card earnings: 


Spend Threshold:

You’ll need to spend $3,000 on this card within 3 months for 50K miles or $20K in a year ($1,667/month) for 100K miles.

You can pay your federal taxes for a 1.87% fee. If you overpay your taxes you can request a refund or apply it to your next year’s taxes.

My local natural gas company allows me to prepay up to $1,000 on a credit card for a $1.65 flat fee. That’s a great way to earn miles and help meet a spend threshold. My electricity supplier allows me to pay with a credit card for free as long as I am enrolled in autopay.


Card benefits:

  • Rental car CDW insurance
  • Extended warranty
  • Lost Luggage Insurance
  • Travel Accident Insurance
  • Purchase protection for items damaged or stolen within 90 days

Global Entry/TSA Pre-Check Credit:

You can reimbursed for those Global Entry/Pre-Check Membership fees ($85 for Pre-Check or $100 for Global Entry and Pre-Check) every 4 years. Membership lasts for 5 years, so you will be able to renew before your membership lapses. Global Entry/Pre-Check make flying so much easier. I got Global Entry and Pre-Check for free for my entire family via credit cards that offer free membership!

Can the points be redeemed for any useful gift cards with a decent rate?

A

anyone?
can we buy an amazon gift card @ 1 mile per 1 cent?

FYI, due to corona you can also redeem miles on takeout food and streaming services. I was able to pay for a whole year of Amazon Prime using Venture miles, and also most restaurant charges seem to be eligible for redemption.

where do they pull from? what is typical score required?

Shawn

Declined. 3 CCs in the last 12 months. Pulled all 3 credit bureaus

Sionsam

If it’s 29k flying blue miles from NYC to Tel Aviv can you book a round trip for double that? Seems like this is the best option.

i

just signed up a few weeks ago think they will let me have the offer?

Girshh

You can redeem over and over for the same travel transaction. So it’s essentially 2% cash back as long as you have a single eligible transaction!

Denied, spotless long credit report with cards reporting balances. Around 7/24 give or take. Last Cap1 card was over 15 years ago. Looks like Cap1 will stay in the realm of irrelevance for another 15.

Same thing happened to me. I do have two other Capital One cards. Spark Cash and Spark Miles. High credit score, etc. Going to put my dollars from the Cash card into miles and onto Miles card and cancel the Cash card in response.

Given Capital One is known for their subprime business, I firmly believe they only approve applicants that have less perfect credit and carry a balance. Customers who pay their bills on time are just not profitable business as the late fees and interest fees generated from the subprime side.

Annoyed

Same here, been getting offers from them forever. Actually got a pre-approved email from them with reservation and access code. Still got denied.

The Value Traveler

I also got this and got denied mths back. Never again….but boy this is tempting.

When does this offer expire? Thanks Dan & Have A Gmar Chasima Tova!

genius

Anyone know When does this offer expire?

CK

It’s still on

I have this card but for cash back it’s only .50 of a cent cashback for every dollar spent so for 140,000 miles cash is only $700.
