Capital One continues to add value to its loyalty program. The Capital One Venture and Capital One Spark Miles cards . With the addition of Accor Live Limitless and Wyndham Rewards as Capital One hotel transfer partners, there are now 15 airline and two hotel loyalty programs to choose from. I love how Capital One keeps adding additional options to use our Capital One Venture Miles.

Capital One Venture Card overview

The Capital One Venture Card earns unlimited 2x miles on every purchase that you make. Cardholders also receive up to a $100 reimbursement for Global Entry or TSA Precheck application fees. There are no foreign transaction fees on international purchases and Capital One waives the annual fee of $95 the first year.

Small business owners earn even more Capital One miles with the Capital One Spark Miles card. This business travel credit card earns unlimited 2x miles on every purchase and 5x miles on hotels and rental car reservations made through Capital One Travel. The Spark Miles cardholder also receives reimbursement up to $100 for Global Entry or TSA Precheck application fees. The $95 annual fee is waived the first year.

Two new Capital One hotel transfer partners

Cardholders can redeem miles by “erasing” travel purchases at a value of one cent per point. People love not dealing with blackout dates when booking their vacations.

Since December 2018, Capital One has added 17 transfer partners as a way to redeem your miles. It started with 14 transfer partners, then added JetBlue as a transfer partner about a year ago. I love the flexibility of redeeming points for travel purchases or transferring to an airline or hotel loyalty program.

If you have the Capital One Venture, Venture, VentureOne, Spark Miles and Spark Miles Select, you can transfer your miles to these programs. The 17 airline and hotel loyalty programs you can transfer your Capital One miles to are:

  • Aeromexico (Club Premier)
  • Air Canada (Aeroplan)
  • Air France KLM (Flying Blue)
  • Alitalia (MilleMiglia Program)
  • ALL – Accor Live Limitless
  • Cathay Pacific (Asia Miles)
  • Avianca (LifeMiles)
  • Emirates Airlines (Emirates Skywards)
  • Etihad Airways (Etihad Guest)
  • EVA Air (Infinity MileageLands)
  • Finnair (Finnair Plus)
  • Hainan Airlines (Fortune Wings Club)
  • JetBlue (TrueBlue)
  • Qantas (Qantas Frequent Flyer)
  • Qatar Airways (Privilege Club)
  • Singapore Airlines (KrisFlyer)
  • Wyndham Rewards

Accor Live Limitless hotel loyalty program

Many Americans don’t know much about the Accor Live Limitless (ALL) brand name. Accor has more than 4,800 hotels in 100 countries around the world. When you join ALL’s loyalty program, you can receive 10% off your next cash booking.

Some of ALL’s brands include:

  • Fairmont
  • Sofitel
  • swissotel
  • Mercure
  • ibis

ALL has another promotion where you can earn up to 6,000 bonus points on your stays. You’ll earn 500 points on the first stay, 2,500 on the second, and 3,000 on the third. All of these stays require a minimum of two nights. Book by March 6, 2020, for stays from February 14, 2020, through June 7, 2020.

This is a great way to earn additional points to pair with points transferred at a 2:1 ratio from Capital One.

Wyndham Rewards hotel loyalty program

Wyndham is a much more recognizable brand in the U.S. The hotel has 20 brands and more than 9,000 hotels across 80 countries around the world. Some of the properties are not that appealing (Super 8, Ramada), but Wyndham also has some high-end brands that are very nice (Wyndham Grand, Dolce, Tryp). Wyndham also has connections with some of the Las Vegas hotels that we love to eat, drink, and stay at, including Caesars, Paris, and the Cromwell.

You can join Wyndham Rewards for free to create your account. Free nights start at just 7,500 points and discounted nights start at 1,500 points. Plus, you’ll earn 10x points per dollar or 1,000 points per stay, whichever is more.

Capital One miles transfer to Wyndham at a rate of 2:1.5. This means that 2,000 Capital One miles equal 1,500 Wyndham Rewards points.

The Bald Thoughts

Although I don’t have an immediate need to transfer points to Accor or Wyndham, it is good to know that they are now a Capital One transfer partner. There are now 17 airline and hotel transfer partners to choose from, giving Capital One cardholders even more options than before.

The kids and I have been traveling to a lot of ski resorts this year. I know that Fairmont has several hotel locations near the slopes, so I’m going to look into my options and try to stay at one the next time we go skiing and snowboarding.
