Capital One is in a state of perpetual motion with their rewards credit cards right now. Once fairly simple and plain offerings, many cards now feature incredible benefits or best in class rewards in an ever expanding variety of categories.

First it was a foray into dining perks, then the launch of miles transfer partners with top airlines and airport lounges not long after.

The premium Venture X Card was avery big deal too. And now, there’s a new way to redeem Capital One Venture Miles and also gain VIP access to events, effortlessly.

Today, Capital One officially launches Capital One Entertainment, the new platform built with VividSeats.com to unlock access to sports, concerts and everything worth seeing.

Capital One Entertainment is the new digital rewards platform for cardholders to use their points and Venture Miles for seats at more than 500,000 events across sports, live concerts, theatre and more — with special access to curated VIP experiences.

The program is now live on the Capital One app, and also on the web.

Exclusive Access

Among the marquee initial offers, there are some neat seat opportunities for things people tend to get pretty emotional about, like college sports. Here’s how Capital One describes what’s up for grabs.

Capital One Entertainment also gives cardholders access to a collection of premium packages at upcoming events. Specifically, Venture X cardholders can redeem the following ticket packages for 100,000 miles (a great redemption option for Venture X customers, especially those who have earned their 100,000 mile early spend bonus):

NCAA Men’s Final Four Weekend in New Orleans (April 1 – 4, 2022) including 2 suite seats, passes to Capital One JamFest and Men’s Final Four Fan Fest presented by Capital One.

iHeartCountry Festival in Austin, TX (May 7, 2022)  including premium tickets and access to a sound check with headliner Thomas Rhett.

Other exclusive experiences will be added throughout the year including events like the iHeartRadio Music Festival, Capital One Orange Bowl, the College Football National Championship, James Beard Foundation events, the MICHELIN Guide culinary events and more.

More Appealing Rewards And Easy Access

For travel junkies, converting Capital One Miles into airline miles with top airline partners, or using purchase eraser to wipe travel purchases off the account is always going to be a go-to.

But one size fits all isn’t a thing in travel, nor is it a thing in credit card rewards. Having more opportunities to use points in ways that appeal to more people is a great thing, particularly when it’s done right.

As a huge sponsor of arenas, events, pro teams and award shows, Capital One has access few people can attain. Using that access to share it with cardmembers and offer up opportunity for aspirational rewards is sure to be a great recipe for success. In fact, t usually is!

Will you use your points for tickets?
