What’s the deal?
The Capital One® Spark® Miles for Business has a one-time bonus of 50,000 miles once you spend $4,500 on purchases within 3 months from account opening.
What’s the catch?
There’s a $0 intro for first year; $95 after that. That’s fairly reasonable compared to some other travel cards that may have $450 annual fees.
Every point is worth one cent, so 10,000 miles gets you $100 in travel credit. That’s a pretty standard conversion.
How does it work?
You simply ‘erase’ travel purchases from your card any time you’d like. No need to use any special travel portals or sites. Just book your travel wherever you want with your card, and you can get the statement credit afterward. Miles can be used to ‘erase’ travel from any airline, hotel, or car rental company.*Redemptions must be made within 90 days from the date your travel purchase posts to your account.
Is it the best deal?
If your business requires you and your employees to travel often, the Capital One® Spark® Miles for Business may be a helpful card. In addition to the one-time bonus of 50,000 miles once you spend $4,500 on purchases within 3 months from account opening, the rewards rate is great. Earn 2 Miles per $1 on every purchase, every day.
