FM Mini Review: Many no-fee cards offer better rewards, so there's no point in using this card after collecting the signup bonus.


Card Type: Visa Signature or Platinum

Earning rate: 1.25X everywhere

Noteworthy perks: ⚬ Earn 10x miles on hotels when you pay with your VentureOne card at hotels.com/venture ⚬ Redeem miles for travel at value of 1 cent per mile.

Overview

The Capital One VentureOne Rewards card earns only 1.25 miles per dollar. Miles are worth 1 cent each when redeemed for travel. In other words, this card effectively earns 1.25% in rewards. That's not very good.

10X for Hotels...

One area in which this card shines is when booking hotels through their special link. Earn 10x miles on hotels when you pay with your Venture card at hotels.com/venture. In other words, you get the equivalent of 10% back for all hotel bookings made this way!

Bottom Line

Good choice for a signup bonus, but an awful choice to use for spend with one big exception: Earning 10X miles on hotels is excellent.
