At Forbes Advisor we review hundreds of credit cards. For what it’s designed to do, which is elevate your travel experience while earning rewards on everything you buy, Venture X may be one of the best cards we’ve ever reviewed. That may sound like hyperbole, but see if you can disagree after you see all the features the card has with an annual fee significantly less than the closest competitor.
First, the welcome bonus speaks for itself: Earn 100,000 bonus miles after spending $10,000 on purchases within the first six months of account opening. In addition, for a limited time new cardholders can receive up to $200 in statement credits for vacation rentals like Airbnb and VRBO.
Earning rewards on the card couldn’t be simpler: Earn 2 miles per dollar on all eligible purchases and 5 miles per dollar on flights and 10 miles per dollar on hotels and rental cars when booking via Capital One Travel. No opt-ins, worrying about categories or shopping with a specific vendor.
Redeeming miles is just as easy. You can apply miles towards any travel purchase made on your card. You also have the option to transfer to travel partners if you want to up your redemption game.
