I have been working with Capital One this summer on their amazing program around their Venture Card. If you’re a lover of summer family travel and travel in general, I’m super excited to share the importance and necessity of the Venture Card from Capital One.
This has been a summer of travel for our family. I mean, seriously… non-stop travel. Even though it seems like it’s been crazy for our family, we have absolutely LOVED every single second of it. Cape Cod. Nantucket. Hershey. And most recently, we JUST returned from a last-minute trip to Disney World.
As you can imagine, travel expenses for a family of 7 isn’t cheap.
Take our Disney World vacation. We had airfare for 6 people (Victoria is a lap child), we had taxis from the airport to the hotel and we had our hotel expense. The expenses of everything add up quickly. Since we are a family who loves to travel and seem to be somewhere different every single weekend through leisure trips, swim meets and basketball/baseball tournaments, it’s essential that we use a travel rewards credit card. I have absolutely LOVED using Capital One’s Venture Card.
If you don’t have it, I’m telling you… you need to get one.
Oh, yes… that’s double miles on every purchase, every day.
At the grocery store?
At the gas station?
Out to dinner with your family?
Grabbing a morning cup of coffee?
Buying Back-to-School items for your kids?
Purchasing summer essentials?
Whatever it is you’re buying, use your Capital One Venture Card. With every dollar you spend, you’re making it that much easier for you to redeem and stock up on some travel rewards.
I have seen first-hand the ease and practicality of the Venture Card.
Everyone keeps asking me, “But Audrey… what makes this different from other reward credit cards? What makes it so easy to use and how does it eliminate the frustration of redeeming rewards?”
Honestly, I loved getting asked these types of questions. 🙂
What makes it so different is that Venture cardholders get easy redemption with the flexibility to fly on any airline, anytime with no blackout dates, no advance booking required and no expiration of their rewards.
You read that correctly.
ANYTIME with no blackout dates.
NO advance booked.
NO expiration of rewards.
Sounds too good to be true, but it isn’t! They’re your miles, use them the way you want.
Take my Disney World trip for example. I didn’t have to worry about booking it last minute. We literally booked our airline tickets 8 days prior to leaving, with the Venture Card, I was able to look online for the very best deal and not worry about just booking with a particular airline with potential blackout dates.
I found an incredible deal on Southwest for $288/round trip/per person. When I was looking at other airlines, the prices were as high as $580 a ticket! I found an incredible deal at a Disney hotel, too.
I can be looking for the best deals for my family and not worry about paying a premium because I need to stay at one particular hotel chain. This helps me a ton because I always have to book 2 hotel rooms for our larger family or book a suite that will accommodate us. Since I’m ALWAYS looking for the best deal possible, using Venture Card Rewards are the best possible scenario for me and my family. In fact, rewards can even be redeemed for any travel related expense, including taxi, cruise line and rental car purchases. And, as with all Capital One cards, if you are traveling abroad, there are no foreign transaction fees with Venture.
So start now!
Apply for a Capital One Venture Credit Card and start racking up points for your travel! Finally a travel rewards card that lets you travel the way you want! 🙂
You will love it and will quickly begin to see how easy, practical and family-friendly the Venture Card is for you!
