Update 12/5/22: A Frequent Miler Insiders reaeder alerted us that this offer has changed yet again…and it keeps getting better. Now it offers $75 off flights to/from ANY US airport to/from any airport in Canada OR $75 off any hotel booking in Canada. The new offer is pictured below:
I tested it out and found that the discount could be used on hotels where the discount covers the entire nightly rate of the hotel (and the leftover is then applied to taxes and fees:
Being able to use it from any US airport or any Canadian hotel makes this an incredible deal…check for it if you have any travel to or in Canada in the near future.
Original post follows:
Capital One is out with something that looks new: offers specific to the Capital One Travel portal (and in this case it seems the offer is targeted to Capital One Venture X cardholders). While this specific offer is fairly narrow, I am particularly excited to see Capital One coming out with a new avenue to save, particularly since this type of thing might make the annual travel credit on the Venture X even easier to use for good value. Credit for this find goes to someone in our Frequent Miler Insiders Facebook group who reported it earlier this evening.
- Capital One Travel has introduced an “offers” section with a current offer that appears to be targeted to Venture X cardholders: Get
$40now $75 off any flight to Canada to/from New York, New Jersey and Texasany US airport when booking with Capital One Travel
- Alternatively, you can use the same offer for $75 off any hotel booking in Canada.
- Must be targeted and see the offer upon logging into Capital One travel.
- Expires 12/31/22
- Valid one time only
- Valid only on flights to Canada to/from
New York, New Jersey and Texasany US airport
This offer has a pretty narrow target: you need to be looking to book a flight to Canada from one of only three US states. That feels pretty random to me. I might have assumed that Capital One was targeting us by general region (New York and New Jersey), but the inclusion of Texas seems to debunk that theory. Still, I think it’s encouraging to see offers pop up specific to the Capital One Travel portal. That’s particularly true with a flight offer given that we just don’t often see ways to save money on flights apart from Amex Offers or the occasional discounted gift card.
On the other hand, I can’t help but wonder if Capital One is just making things too confusing with the multitude of different types of offers they have. There is the Capital One Shopping website, which is a public shopping portal (no Capital One card required), the Capital One Shopping app, which is an extension of that public portal but it often features targeted higher payout offer, Capital One Shopping targeted offers that come via email, and Capital One Offers that appear within a Capital One cardholder’s credit card login (that operate exactly like a shopping portal, but which are only found within a cardholder login. Adding yet another section of offers seems like it has the potential to confuse cardholders. Still, if it means another way to save, I don’t mean to discourage them — and in this case, the $40 discount will appear during checkout, so it seems pretty straightforward.
I noted that this targeted offer appears to be just for Capital One Venture X cardholders because while my wife sees the offer as soon as she logs in to Capital One Travel, I do not. I assume that this offer would stack with the card’s annual $300 travel credit. The card came out a year ago last week, so some people are likely coming up on their first anniversary. My wife opened her account within the first days of the card being launched, so her 1-year mark has passed, but the benefit tracker still shows her $300 credit has been fully used (and it says that the new credit will be available in November 2022). I assume it will renew after her next statement cuts and she would be able to stack here if we had a need to book a flight to Canada.
I’ll certainly now log in to Capital One Travel now and then to see if they have new offers — and I’ll count that as a win for Capital One for now — hopefully it’ll be a win for all of us.
Okay. This is bizarre. I saw the offer about ten days ago even with the Venture card. I didn’t pull the trigger because I was still planning out a few things. Plus I knew I had until 12/31 before the offer went away. Well I check today and this offer is GONE. I’ll be calling the CapOne travel number later and also changing browsers to see if that helps. Grrr…
Also not seeing it across 4 people now with Venture X…a shame we are never notified of changes or even when the offer comes up. They also pulled a fast one with the Priority Pass Membership no-restaurant change, found out through the blogs instead of Capital One
Just an FYI, I had the offer this morning (12/12) and searched for flights to Canada and when I logged back in this afternoon the offer was gone. I called customer service and they said they didn’t see the offer any longer either. I’m not sure why the offer went away, but the timing was definitely suspect.
Same, just finished trip planning this morning and went to book just now and the offer is gone. So frustrated…………
Where do you find this? I have a Venture X but it’s not popping up for me (and I was planning a trip to Toronto anyway) 🙁
Data point: I have a Venture but not Venture X and my offer is $60
Thanks for the heads up on this! My offer this morning is for $60 off…
I had the offer that said book any hotel, get $100 off. I used it for thanksgiving weekend. I have the $95 venture card. My husband had the same offer and he has a quicksilver card. I also see the $75 off offer on my account
I am a California registered account with Spark Cash Select card (no other CapOne card). I was targeted for $60 offer for NY/NJ/Texas last week. Today, that has changed to a similar offer to this article, but for $60
Mine has gone from $40 => $60.
(Venture X, based in NC)
Same for me. Hoping for the $75 offer to show up.
I am NY resident with Venture X. I do not see it in the banner and also don’t see it in my offers section. I have already used my new yar 300 credit. I could use this.
Nick, this is not just targeted at Venture X card holders. I see the $75 in my Venture X account, but my wife has a $60 offer in her regular Venture account. Also, we do NOT live in New York, New Jersey, or Texas.
I see this but it’s for $60. I’m in Houston.
Hey Nick, is this where you would see the offer in the Capital One Travel portal? https://travel.capitalone.com/travel-offers/
My offer section is empty, so I searched for JFK-YYZ but didn’t see any targeted offer appear.
I can’t login and check right now, but are you logged in to a Capital One account with a Venture X card? I wonder if it is targeted only to residents of NY, NJ, and TX?
Yes, logged in through my Capital One Venture X account.
I am targeted for this offer and that’s where I see it. I don’t have a Venture or Venture x. I have a Quicksilver and Spark Cash.
