All You Need To Know About Capital One Point Transfers

Are your Capital One rewards points accumulating because you can't find ways to use them? You may be limiting yourself to only the redemption options available through Capital One, but there are other ways to use your points.

Capital One allows you to use your points with some of their travel partners, expanding your hotel and airfare options. If you want to transfer your points to a Capital One partner, DoNotPay can help you do it. 

Earning Points With Your Capital One Card

Capital One has four cards that earn rewards points:

  1. Venture Rewards
  2. VentureOne Rewards
  3. Spark for Business
  4. Spark Select for Business

All four cards have a new member bonus of up to 60,000 miles and earn between 1.25 and 2 miles for every dollar. Both the Venture and Spark cards have a $95 annual fee, though the fee is waived on the Spark card for the first year. That fee is offset by a Global Entry or TSA PreCheck credit every four years.

If you decide to change your Capital One points into cash, here is the typical point value:

Capital One Travel Partners

Most partners allow you to transfer miles for the same value. There are three exceptions to this:

  1. Aeromexico Club Premier
  2. ALL Accor Live Limitless
  3. EVA Infinity MileageLands

You will also find that most partners offer instant transfers. The following partners take between 24 hours and five business days to transfer miles:

  • ALL Accor Live Limitless
  • Cathay Pacific Asia Miles
  • Etihad Guest
  • EVA Infinity MileageLands
  • Qantas Frequent Flier
  • Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer

When accounting for the transfer value and flexibility of miles, these partners appear to provide the most value:

  • British Airways
  • Air Canada
  • Turkish Airlines
  • Etihad
  • Avianca

British Airways Executive Club

In addition to your Capital One spending, British Airways Avios can be earned with Oneworld partners and transferred to your account. Avios can then be used to book flights based on distance, with the cost of the flight usually less on American Airlines than directly through British Airways.

Air Canada Aeroplan

Air Canada points can be used with any Star Alliance member airline. One of the most promising points of the system is the fixed point cost of a flight based on its origin, destination, and ticket class:

  • Under 500 miles within North America: 6,000 points
  • US to Europe Economy: 35,000 to 40,000 points
  • US to Europe Business: 60,000 to 70,000 points
  • US to Europe First: 90,000 to 100,000 points

Turkish Airlines Miles & Smiles

Turkish Airlines miles can also be used with Star Alliance airlines. Depending on the airline you choose to redeem with, you may find a hefty fuel surcharge tacked onto the price of your ticket. United appears to be the best redemption partner in this regard.

Etihad Guest

The major benefit of Etihad Guest is the partnership with American Airlines. The conversion rate offers more value than going directly through American Airlines.

Avianca LifeMiles

Like Air Canada points and Turkish Airlines miles, Avianca LifeMiles can be used with Star Alliance airlines. In addition to this flexibility, you won't lose points to fuel surcharges.

How to Transfer Your Capital One Points

You can transfer your Capital One points from your account page using the following process:

  2. Click Transfer Miles next to the name of the partner you would like to transfer to.

Transfer Your Points Quickly With DoNotPay

If you'd like to take the guesswork out of transferring your points to one of Capital One's travel partners, DoNotPay can do it for you in just three steps:

  1. Search "points" or "rewards" on DoNotPay, and select the rewards program you're a part of / the type of points you have.

     

  2. Choose whether you want to check your points balance, transfer your points, or sell them for cash.

     

  3. If you selected one of the first two options, DoNotPay can check your points balance or transfer your points for you. Otherwise, we can help you find the best deal through third-party vendors.

     

For example, if you are also a Marriott Rewards member, you can transfer your points to airline miles or find discounted hotel rates to redeem the best value. If you want to sell your points, we can help you find the best deal through third-party vendors. Lastly, we can also help you check your latest points balance automatically!
