New Capital One business credit monitoring tool

Capital One has launched a new tool for businesses to monitor their business credit. The tool looks like it works similar to existing free consumer tools, but provides a glance at the business side of your credit. To my knowledge, this tool is the first of its kind to give access on the business side, and it is open to all US business owners (not just Capital One customers). As with other free tools, the…

Transferable Points Programs: Amex vs Chase vs Citi vs Capital One

Amex Transfer Partners

In my opinion, transferable points programs are the most valuable points to accumulate.  These points can often be used at better than 1 cent per point value to book travel.  Even better, points can be strategically transferred to airline and hotel programs when valuable awards are available.  If you’re at all interested in free travel or luxury travel with points & miles, then you need to understand the basics of each of these programs. In this post,…

Capital One “Rewards miles” post w/ purchase (no waiting for statement)

With the recent enhancements to Capital One’s Rewards miles programs (with the Capital One® Venture® Rewards Credit Card and Capital One® Spark® Miles for Business cards), which now transfer to airline miles, can be combined easily with your other miles-earning cards or even with other Capital One customers, and might even make these cards even better than the old SPG cards), I’ve been putting more spend on my Capital One cards than I had in…

Booking Delta flights with Capital One miles

Capital One has long touted that their Venture card earns 2 miles per dollar everywhere and with no blackout dates.  That’s technically true, but a bit deceiving in that Capital One “miles” are not airline miles at all.  Instead, they’re basically pennies that can be used only for travel.  When you incur a travel expense with your Venture card, you can erase that charge with your “miles” at a rate of one “mile” per cent…

Now share Capital One miles with others

This morning, Capital One added the capability to transfer your Venture Rewards or Spark Miles to airline partners. What I also noticed — and perhaps this existed before and I hadn’t noticed, but it was new to me for sure — is that you can now combine your miles — both between your own cards and combine with other people. I’m told there are no caps and you can transfer between business and personal as long as both are miles-earning…

Now transfer Capital One miles (and 2 more partners added…at a poor ratio)

Last month, it was widely reported that Capital One would be adding transfer partners to its Capital One Venture  Rewards and Spark Miles cards. That capability has come live today. There are even a couple more transfer partners than we expected — though I’m very disappointed to see that those additions (Singapore Airlines and Emirates) do not transfer at the same ratio as other partners. While Capital One indicates that they intend to add more partners in the…

My thoughts about the big Capital One news

Yesterday we learned that Capital One “Miles” will soon be transferable to airline miles.  This is big news because it’s finally possible to get better than one cent per mile value from those “Miles”.  We also learned that Capital One is offering huge signup bonuses for their cards, but with huge spend requirements.  For more on both of these topics, see: Wow! Capital One miles now transfer & a huge bonus. Below you’ll find my…
