Update #2: This news was eventually confirmed. The partnership with Hotels.com is ending on 1/31/20.

Update: Gary from View From The Wing has contacted Capital One who confirmed that they haven’t made an announcement regarding this. The Hotels.com/Venture landing page lists the end date as January 31, 2020, but the partnership could be extended beyond that date. If anything is formally announced, we’ll let you know.

Just over a year ago, Capital One started offering 10% back on its Venture cards when booking stays through Hotels.com. They’ve now announced that this partnership will be ending on January 31, 2020.

In my opinion, this isn’t a huge loss as you were forgoing discounts and rewards worth far more than you were getting through this partnership. For starters, you had to book directly at hotels.com/venture which meant you missed out on portal rewards worth ~5%. Secondly, the 10% included the 1.5%/2% you already earned by paying with the Venture card, so you were actually only earning an additional 8.5%/8%.

Not only did the partnership limit your rewards, but it also limited your savings. That’s because you can frequently save 15%-20% on Hotels.com gift cards through all kinds of methods:

All these methods would save you more money than paying with a Venture card, so there’s no need to be too disappointed after January 31, 2020 if it’s a partnership you’ve made use of.
