This 100,000 point offer is now expired. The current offer is now “Earn 75,000 bonus miles once you spend $4,000 on purchases within your first 3 months.” 

When Capital One launched the Venture X card, waves were made. The Venture X has a hefty annual fee, however, the introductory “early spend bonus” offer provides a minimum of $750 in rewards and cash back (100,000 75,000 points) and the card features and benefits cover the fee on their own.

Frankly, it’s lasted longer than expected but if you haven’t hopped on this train yet, the time is now. Heck, even I have been sitting idle on it but I will apply myself before the offer ends as it’s just too solid of an offer to pass on.

The Capital One Venture X credit card has the following earn rates and benefits:

  • 2X miles on every purchase
  • 10X miles on hotels and rental cars booked via Capital One Travel
  • 5X miles on flights booked via Capital One Travel
  • Up to a $300 credit annually for bookings made on Capital One Travel
  • 10,000 bonus miles every account anniversary (equal to $100 towards travel)
  • Unlimited access to Capital One Lounges and also to 1,300+ Priority Pass lounges internationally + two guest passes (Notably, I verified with Capital One that this is “full” Priority Pass access, meaning that it includes airport restaurant locations like Chase and Citi (and unlike Amex.)
  • Up to $100 in statement credits for either TSA PreCheck or Global Entry
  • Complimentary Hertz President’s Circle status (top tier!) for primary cardholders, authorized users and account managers
  • Car rental collision damage waiver is primary.
  • Visa Infinite level Trip Interruption / Cancellation coverage.
  • Authorized Users can be added for no fee and they also get their own Priority Pass membership.
  • Cardholders can earn up to 100,000 miles per year for referring friends, who can then experience the unparalleled benefits Venture X has to offer (up to 4 referrals per year; 25,000 miles awarded per referral)

If you are still on the fence, please read my full review of the Venture X credit card.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at the South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.


  1. I don’t see it listed as a perk above, but when I got the card in November there was a one-time $200 credit on a vacation rental. Your readers might want to consider using that in Ukraine … and not going, of course. It’s a way to help put cash in people’s hands directly.
