Last update: March 10, 2015


The Capital One® Venture® Rewards card is a rewards card that offers consistent mile earning potential, as well as flexibility and protection as key components in its miles redemption and benefits programs. Here are the basics:

  • No expiration date on rewards
Annual Fee

  • Auto rental insurance—use your card to rent a car and you're covered for collision, damage and loss

Special Notes:

  • There is no balance transfer fee, however, there's also no introductory APR, so you'll only want to transfer your balance if Capital One's APR is lower than the rate on your existing balance. If you're looking for a Capital One card with an intro APR for balance transfers, check out the Capital One Card Finder Tool here!
  • The card comes with a $59 annual fee, which is waived for the first year. Keep this is mind when reviewing the card perks and rewards.
  • Miles earned as rewards through the Capital One® Venture® Card are fixed in value and not transferrable to your frequent flyer or frequent guest programs at airlines and hotels.

The Final Word:
The Capital One® Venture® Card is a great travel rewards card that allows you the freedom to redeem miles in a flexible manner, without expiration dates, earning limits, or blackout dates. As long as you're comfortable with a self-contained rewards program that does not give you option of transferring miles, the Capital One® Venture® Card is a worthy contender for your wallet space.
