[Update: Now $75] Capital One Travel Offer: $75 off flights to Canada from NY / NJ / TX

8

Update 11/27/22: I logged into Capital One Travel last night and saw that this offer increased to $75 off. as pictured below. 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.

The Deal

  • Capital One Travel has introduced an “offers” section with a current offer that appears to be targeted to Venture X cardholders: Get $40 now $75 off any flight to Canada from New York, New Jersey, or Texas when you book through Capital One Travel. Again, this offer appears to be targeted so make sure you see it upon login.

Key Terms

  • Expires 12/31/22
  • Valid one time only
  • Valid only on flights to Canada from New York, New Jersey or Texas

Quick Thoughts

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.

Mine has gone from $40 => $60.

(Venture X, based in NC)

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.

Brett

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.

Andy

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.

Grant

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.
