The Capital One Venture X card is one of the best all-round travel credit cards ever launched. Not only is it offering a tremendous welcome bonus, but cardholders can earn tons of miles on everyday spending and receive a 10,000-mile anniversary bonus to boot. Its annual fee is $395, but cardholders can count on up to $300 in statement credits toward travel booked through Capital One Travel each year and other valuable benefits like access to Priority Pass lounges and Capital One’s own growing family of airport lounges.
Excellent welcome offer worth 75,000 miles after you spend $4,000 on purchases in the first three months.
Up to $300 in annual travel statement credits toward bookings make through Capital One Travel.
10,000 bonus miles (worth $100 toward travel) each account anniversary.
The $395 annual fee might be expensive for some, but this card’s benefits provide much more value than that.
If you don’t travel frequently, this might not be the best card for you.
The Capital One Venture X is great for folks looking to get more from their travel experience. Capital One miles can be redeemed for one cent apiece toward travel, but they can also be transferred to 14 airline and three hotel partners including Air Canada Aeroplan and Wyndham Rewards, which can open up tremendous travel opportunities.
If you pass through airports a lot, the card will get you into over 1,300 Priority Pass lounges worldwide, not to mention Capital One’s own planned network of swanky lounges, the first of which opened at Dallas-Fort Worth in 2021.
The Venture X is also a fantastic all-round earner, accumulating up 10 miles per dollar on hotels and car rentals booked through Capital One, 5 miles per dollar on flights booked through Capital One travel, and 2 miles per dollar on other purchases. So you can rack up even more travel rewards on your everyday spending.
Thanks to the various transfer options, we value Capital One miles at 1.85 cents apiece. That means the sign-up bonus of 75,000 miles is worth a whopping $1,387.50 toward travel (not provided by the issuer). Apart from that, you can earn 2 miles per dollar on everyday purchases, and at higher rates on various travel bookings made through Capital One, all of which adds up to a great return on spending.
