Capital One ended 2018 with huge news, adding airline transfer partners to its miles-earning cards. That means now is an especially good time to add a Capital One miles-earning card to your wallet.
Unfortunately, the Capital One Spark Miles for Business card’s amazing bonus of up to 200,000 miles (after a total of $50,000 in spending in the first six months) is no longer available. Now, you’ll earn 50,000 miles after spending $4,500 in the first three months. That’s a much lower bonus, but also a much more attainable minimum spending requirement. Based on TPG’s valuations, 50,000 Capital One miles are worth $700.
This card has a $95 annual fee that’s waived the first year, and it earns 2x miles on all purchases — equal to a 2.8% return based on TPG’s valuations. There are no foreign-transaction fees, and you can get employee cards for free. Check out our review of the card for more info.
You can transfer miles earned on the card to 12 airline partners, including Avianca and Etihad, at a 2:1.5 ratio, and to two others (Emirates and Singapore Airlines) at a 2:1 ratio. You’ll still be able to use the Purchase Eraser tool to redeem miles toward statement credits for travel purchases at a rate of 1 cent per mile, if you don’t want to learn the ins and outs of the partner airline programs.
Here’s the link to apply for the Capital One Spark Miles for Business card with a 50,000-mile sign-up bonus.
