The Capital One hotel discount is 10% for reservations booked on hotels.com/venture with a Capital One Venture or VentureOne card, plus 1 free night after you’ve paid for 10 nights. The 10% Cap 1 hotels.com discount isn’t really a discount, though. Rather than paying less upfront, you get 10 miles per $1 spent, which works out to 10% back when you redeem your miles for a travel purchase. This promotion is available through January 31, 2020.
You must pay online when booking to receive the bonus miles. Payments made through the hotels.com mobile app are not eligible.
Here is how to get the Capital One hotel discounts:
- Use your Capital One Venture or VentureOne credit card to book a room at hotels.com/venture before January 31, 2020. You can also redeem Venture miles toward your booking. Any other form of payment is not eligible for the 10x bonus miles.
- Select the “Pay Now” option at checkout. You must pay at the time of the booking.
- You will receive 10 bonus miles for every $1 you spend on your booking. This includes any taxes and fees.
- Bonus miles will post to your account within two billing cycles from when you’ve paid for your stay.
- You will earn a free night every time you book 10 stays on Hotels.com/venture with your Capital One Venture or VentureOne credit card. The nights don’t have to be consecutive.
The Capital One hotel discounts are not immediate or traditional. But they can get you up to 20% off. When you book on hotels.com/venture you pay the full price but receive 10 reward points per $1. That’s like getting a 10% rebate on your stay. And when you’ve booked 10 nights with either Venture card, you get a free night. The value of that free night is the average of your previous 10 paid nights. In other words, the free night is worth 10% of the total price you paid.
So if you book 10 nights and get both the points and the free night, it’s essentially a 20% discount on everything you spent.
Just so you know, you will not get Capital One hotel discounts if you cancel your booking. You won’t receive any miles, nor will you get credit toward a free night. That makes sense since otherwise, it would be easy to abuse.
