By far the best credit card I have ever had. Their customer service is outstanding and react very quickly to any problems you might have. If your looking for a new card you won't find a better one.

The best card ever they watch and protect their customers if you have questions or need service they are the there. The yearly fee worth every penny. I Travel a lot if you do then this is the card to use and the benefits are great.

I have used this card for years. It is very easy to redeem points for travel and getting 2 miles for every dollar spent allows quick reward. The only thing that keeps it from a 5 star rating for me is the annual $95 fee that some other cards do not charge.

I have this card and the miles rack up fast. Used it in Europe and Asia no problem. If suspicious transactions are made, you are notified immediately. You can redeem miles in several ways. Only thing I don't like is the amount for annual fee.

It's a good card, don't get me wrong. I've had this card for 3 years or so and I have used the miles earned to travel to see my family in Florida every year. I pay off the balance every month so I don't pay attention to interest at all. Bummer is with my excellent credit, using about $5000/mo on this card, paying it off every month... there are ZERO additional bonuses after the first initial one. ZERO, ZIP, NADA. I feel like I should get additional rewards and bonuses considering I've spent nearly $250,000 with them. I'm currently looking for another card that rewards great customers like me.

Curious if you have compared this to an airline specific card. I’m wondering if the $100 in waived checked bag fees between my husband and my self is worth switching. Our airline card is 2x miles on airline purchases and 1x in everything Else. This card is 2x on everything. Thoughts?

By: Violet Z. Schmid | Mar 1, 2018

I would use the one that gives you the 2 points per $1 spent. You can pay the airlines baggage fees with it, and still rack up more miles fast!

This card works for cheaper, within the US travel. Or if you never fly business class. But for comfortable overseas travel it's cumbersome.The model works like this...you price the flight you want on the open market, and add two zeros to the end to get the amount of mileage points required for the "free" travel.

I have this card for several years now. Love it. I think I redeemed roughly 6k from travel over the years. Excellent fraud protection too. They FedEx a replacement card for me overnight. I just wish they bring back the old reward program where you can earn points from checking/saving accounts and able to combine points from other capital one accounts

I like FedEx overnight card replacement. UA Mileage Plus takes about two weeks to replace lost card.
