Capital One offers great bonus for the Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card

People who do not have the Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card may want to take a close look at it - it is offering a 75,000 miles sign up bonus.

Once you get your new Venture credit card, you can earn the welcome bonus offer: spend $4,000, within the first 3 months of having the Venture card and earn the 75,000-mile bonus.

What can you do with those miles? You can translate those miles into $750 worth of travel when redeeming for travel purchases made with a Venture card. Use earned miles to buy flights, book a hotel room, rent a car and for other kinds of travel.

The Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card cardmembers can also transfer miles to one of the 15+ travel partners to increase the number of their loyalty points or miles.

Earning double miles with Venture

With the Venture card, people earn double miles on all their purchases, while they earn 5X miles when booking hotels through Capital One Travel.

The card also includes a variety of benefits including:

  • Travel Accident Insurance
  • No Foreign Transaction Fees
