Credit card
Bonus Offer:

20,000 miles when you spend $1,000 within 3 months

Card Features and Benefits:

    This card offers 1.25x Capital One miles on all purchases (reduced from 2x miles on the Venture card, but with no annual fee).

    Use these miles as a purchase eraser at 1 cent per point for an effective 1.25% cash back, or transfer them to a range of airlines at the ratio of 2:1.5, which equals 0.84 airline miles per dollar spent.

    It also uniquely earns 10x points at Hotels.com through January 2020.

    The list of airline transfer partners is:

    Aeromexico
    Aeroplan (Air Canada’s program)
    Alitalia
    Avianca
    Cathay Pacific
    Etihad Airways
    EVA Air
    Finnair
    Flying Blue (Air France / KLM)
    Hainan Airlines
    Qantas
    Qatar Airways
    Singapore Airlines (2:1 ratio)
    Emirates (2:1 ratio)
    JetBlue (2:1 ratio)

    NOTE: Most people would fare better with the standard Capital One Venture card, despite its annual fee, because it earns at the rate of 2x per dollar instead of 1.25x.
