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 Venture or Spark miles for a $900 Marriott gift card.
