Or, consider other cards for 50,000 more miles or points that transfer into United miles with additional flexibility for your everyday spending.
Reward nights start at 10,000 points. Free anniversary night (no points needed) good at any IHG hotel (Intercontinental, Crowne Plaza, more).
$1,000 toward travel or transfer to United, Southwest, and more.
What’s the deal?
Now, you can earn 50,000 miles once you spend $4,500 on purchases within the first 3 months of opening a Capital One Spark Miles for Business card.
That can get you $500 worth of travel value when you use your card to make travel purchases.
What’s the catch?
This card works just like the Capital One Venture Rewards card you might be familiar with. It earns 2 miles for every dollar you spend, and you can use the miles to purchase travel anywhere, with any airline, hotel, or car rental company.
There’s no annual fee the first year and $59 after that.
Every point is worth one cent, so 10,000 miles gets you $100 in travel credit.
Capital One does have a habit of pulling credit files from all three bureaus when you apply, so if you’re sensitive to that, keep it in mind. But if you are sensitive to it, you’re probably already well aware of that.
How does it work?
You simply ‘erase’ travel purchases from your card any time you’d like. No need to use any special travel portals or sites. Just book your travel wherever you want with your card, and you can get the statement credit afterward.
Is it the best deal?
For this card, it’s the biggest intro we’ve seen. Though it’s not as lucrative as the 60,000 point Ink Plus deal that’s currently being offered, which gets you $750 in travel value, though when you redeem for flights like cash you need to book via a special Chase portal. But you also get the flexibility to transfer your points into several airline and hotel programs, including United MileagePlus, Southwest RapidRewards, and Hyatt Gold Passport.
There’s also a $500 intro deal with the same terms on the Spark Cash Business card, which also earns 2% cash on purchases with the same annual fee structure. So it’s nearly the same card but with a different look and name.
