Capital One Partners with Hotels.Com
(Note: The partnership between Capital One and Hotels.com is no longer valid)
Capital One and Hotels.com have partnered to offer travel rewards for Capital One Venture cardholders. Starting today, when Venture cardmembers pay for a room through Hotels.com/venture with their card, they will earn 10X miles, which is in addition to the double miles Venture cardmembers earn on all purchases. These miles can be redeemed for flights, ride shares, or hotel rooms, and there are no blackout dates.
This offer also works with the Hotels.com Rewards program, so after customers have booked 10 nights, they will earn a free night. Travelers will still be charged taxes and fees on their free night.
Lauren Liss, VP of U.S. Cards at Capital One said the partnership was made to make it easier for cardholders to earn rewards for travel. “Those who travel frequently are always looking for new and simple ways to earn rewards that are both genuinely valuable and fit into their lifestyle. That’s why we partnered with Hotels.com – to simplify the lives of our customers while saving them time and money. The new partnership will make it easy for people to earn rewards, regardless of the trip they are taking or the type of lodging they book.”
To use Hotels.com, travelers sign-up to see “Secret Prices,” which can be as much as 40% off the normal hotel rate. Additionally, when travelers download the Hotels.com mobile app, they will have access to over 20,000 mobile-exclusive deals every day.
“We know price is particularly important so we’re out there working every day to get thousands of deals from hotels, resorts, B&Bs and vacation rentals across the world onto our site and app to help travelers find the most rewarding place to stay that both meets their needs and their budget,” said Scott Ludwig, Director of North America for Hotels.com.
As always, to maximize your credit card rewards, you should strive to pay off your balance in full and on time each month so you are not accumulating any interest penalties.
