Capital One is clearly tired of being left out of the travel card conversation. No, their points can’t be turned into frequent flyer miles or hotel points – but they can take money off any travel you want to book. And now, they can get you more money back on any hotel you book – than any other credit card. Here’s everything you need to know about this major Capital One (learn more) development with Hotels.com…
Hotels.com is one of the best ways to book hotels, if you don’t spend more than 50 nights in the same hotel chain every year. The site offers a free night for every 10 nights you book. Now Capital One Venture cards (learn more) will earn 10X points on every hotel booking made with Hotels.com. So yeah, A $1000 purchase would receive $100 back. Simply use the /venture at the end of the Hotels.com website to access the special 10X points. If you already have the card, you’re good to go!
Surprisingly, this isn’t a super limited time deal. This 10X points is valid thru January, 2020 – at the very least. That means you could earn 20% back on all hotel purchases. You earn 10X points via Capital One and a free night from Hotels.com worth the average price you paid for your ten nights for an additional 10% back. This will work for two full years. You also get 2X points on all purchases, too.
Let us be clear here – we get nothing from this card. No ads, links, dough, crumbs or anything else. It’s just an undeniable value if you book hotels and want the best rate of return on your purchases. The card also offers a 50,000 point welcome bonus after spending $3k in 3 months. Those points are worth $500 towards any travel purchase. The annual fee is waived for the first year, so it’s hard to argue against!
