One of the great things about being a TPG contributor are the chance encounters I have with readers all over the world. That’s why I’m thrilled to announce that I’ll be hosting a reader meetup in my home town of Denver on Thursday, Jan. 10, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm.

Join us for a lively discussion of current award travel topics, and I’ll be on-hand to engage with readers and answer any questions you have while we enjoy complimentary hors d’oeuvres and refreshments. The event will be held at the Capital One Cafe at 1550 Wewatta St, and is sponsored by the Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card.

About the Capital One Venture Rewards card

If you haven’t heard, Capital One’s Venture card has added a new miles transfer benefit, which includes over a dozen airline loyalty partners. You still earn unlimited double miles on every purchase, and you can redeem miles as statement credits for any travel expense including airline tickets, hotel stays,rental cars, cruises and more.

But now, you can also transfer your Venture miles to a more than a dozen frequent flyer programs, most at a 2:1.5 ratio. That means you can earn up to 1.5 airline miles per dollar spent with Venture on all purchases! Currently, new cardholders can earn 50,000 bonus miles (worth $500 in travel statement credits), after spending $3,000 on new purchases within the first three months of account opening. You will also earn unlimited 10 miles per dollar on thousands of properties when you use your Venture card at through Jan. 31, 2020. Finally, this card also offers an up to $100 application fee credit for either Global Entry or TSA PreCheck.
