"As both a mom and a frequent traveler, I want to earn as many miles as I can and I don't want any issues when I'm ready to redeem them. Venture gives me double miles and I don't have to worry about things like blackout dates or any of those other annoyances."Capital One Venture has been recognized as one of MONEY® Magazine's "100 Best Money Moves" for two consecutive years. With Venture, cardholders earn double miles on every purchase, every day, without the restrictions commonly found in other rewards programs. Additional Venture features include:The flexibility to fly on any airline, anytime, with no blackout dates or restrictions; The ability to redeem miles for any travel purchase ? airline, hotel, rental car and more ? before, during or after travel; No foreign transaction fees. Other cards charge up to 3% or more when cardholders use their card to make purchases outside the United States; No limitations on how many miles can be accumulated and no miles expirations; Easy redemption as cardholders can simply make their travel purchase (by whatever means they prefer) using their Venture card, then call Capital One or go online to reimburse the charge with their miles.  The cost of the transaction is refunded on the next statement.  "When people look back at their holiday vacations with family and friends, they should be reminded of happy memories, not stressful or problematic travel road blocks they encountered along the way," said Sukhi Sahni, spokesperson at Capital One. "Venture helps you earn miles twice as fast, which means more free travel for the whole family. And you can book your holiday trip on any airline at any time ? after all, where's the sense in earning miles if they can't be redeemed?"  Official rules and guidelines are available at http://www.travelingmom.com/home/capitalone.html.
