Huge new 200K / $2K Capital One business offers for big spend

Yesterday, we published a post comparing the big public welcome offer on the Capital One® Spark® Miles for Business card with a targeted offer from Chase on its marque business card (See: 160K Ultimate Rewards vs 200K Capital One “Miles”: Which is the best big bonus?). However, it just occurred to us that we hadn’t yet published a standalone post to quickly alert readers to the two huge bonuses now available on the Capital One®…

160K Ultimate Rewards vs 200K Capital One “Miles”: Which is the best big bonus?

Last night on Twitter, a reader posted the question: Which offer is better for $50K in spend: the 200K offer available at the time of writing on the Capital One® Spark® Miles for Business card or the targeted 160K Ultimate Rewards points offer that’s available on the Chase Ink Business Preferred card (by targeted mailer only)? I’ll admit that for a second, I almost said Ultimate Rewards without thinking about it. Then I quickly thought…

Capital One Miles Sweet Spots

Capital One long had a fixed-value rewards program that did not offer the kind of opportunities for outsized value that one can find in transferable points programs. However, that changed with the introduction of transfer partners in late 2018. These days, Capital One “Miles” (earned via the Capital One® Venture® Rewards Credit Card or Capital One Spark Miles for Business card) have many valuable uses in addition to the traditional ability to use Capital One…

Redemption remorse: Great deal or terrible mistake?

My job? I blog

Last year, I wrote about what at the time seemed to me like an awesome redemption: some people have the ability to redeem just 64,250 Capital One “miles” from cards like the Capital One® Venture® Rewards Credit Card or Capital One Spark Miles for Business card for a $900 Marriott gift card. That makes the effective return on everyday spend on a Venture or Spark Miles card 2.8% when used towards Marriott – one reason…

The best hotel credit card ever

What is the best hotel credit card there has ever been? If you’d say the old SPG card, I’d have been with you until the early hours this morning. If you’d have said the Hilton Aspire to me yesterday, I might not have argued with you much. And if you’re ready to call me a soulless shill for the credit card companies when I tell you that it is neither of those cards, just do us…
