“This year we earned 100,000 Capital One miles,” McCarter told us. “We spent all of those miles in the past month.”
This isn’t an unusual year for McCarter and her husband—in fact, they’ve earned around six figures’ worth of Capital One miles nearly every year since applying for the Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card. This year, their Capital One rewards not only offset the costs of holiday gifts, but also enabled McCarter to book a solo trip to Mexico. “I have taken a solo trip every year since 2018, always or partially funded with points.”
So how does McCarter fund her holidays with credit card rewards? And can you do the same thing? We asked McCarter to share her story, and added our own expert advice to help you earn the rewards you need to have the holiday you want.
