A few months ago, Capital One overhauled their Spark Miles Business credit card and their Spark Miles Select Business credit card to earn 5X on Hotels and Car Rentals (which applies only when you book via Capital One’s own travel service).
On the Capital One Venture, though, the “big deal” has been the 10x miles on hotels.com (it earns 2X Capital One miles on everything else).
We didn’t know until very recently that the 10X miles on the Capital One Venture wouldn’t be extended past January 2020, though I had my suspicions due to the promoted end date.

I then thought – surely they will start to offer the same 5X on hotels and car rentals booked via the Capital One travel portal starting Feb 1.
So I reached out to a contact at Capital One who advised me… the Capital One Venture *already* earns 5X on hotels and car rentals when booked in the portal.
I of course believed her, but I was confused. I Googled and could find just one lone CNBC post mentioning it. Even the Capital One landing page for Venture doesn’t mention the benefit.
It’s in the Terms and Conditions…
But tucked away in the Terms and Conditions you agree to on the application page (i.e. click through here and then to the application and then click on Rates and Disclosures), you will see this:
