Sun, 24 Jul 2011 17:33:38 +0000Tried to redeem for a gift card...Never got it...Cap One does not put tracking numbers on them. So now I'm Out 25,000 points or a $100 gift card to Toys R us...was going to be Christmas gift for kids. Man, I hate those guys.
Fri, 25 Feb 2011 22:24:18 +0000Well I earned 70,000 points and the reason I did was because I have elederly parents and wanted to be able to fly on a moments notice. Well when I needed to do that I found Capital One required (1) 14 days in advance booking (2) MUST stay over a Saturday night (3) MUST book a round trip ticket. what part of "no Hassle" is this?
Sun, 20 Dec 2009 02:45:48 +0000The comments by Gregg on the Capital One No Hassle Ultra Rewards for Professional card are good; I've had one of these for 6 months and despite two problems with their Customer Service fraud protection unit turning off the card after purchases that didn't fit their profile of me, the experience has been otherwise profitable and positive. Somewhat of a surprise because the bank doesn't have that good of a reputation. With this card, you can go back and ask for a credit for any travel purchases (on=line) for the past 90 days based upon the credits in your account. You earn the travel rewards at 2 cents per dollar for any purchase, but redeem credits at 10,000 points per $100 for anything that is classified as a travel transaction (hotel bills, airline tickets, baggage fees, etc.) It has to be a travel transaction to get that rate, but any trivial amount (e.g. 15 dollars for a baggage fee by an airline) can be credited, and it takes just a few days for the credit to show up after making an online request. So my strategy is just to check my online statement every month or two and ask for an immediate credit for any travel expense for which I have enough credits based upon past purchases to take care of. I think this is better than waiting around to pile up enough miles to take some dream trip. It does cost 39 dollars but that beats most airline cards and you get that money back after you have spent $1950 in a year. The lack of a foreign currency fee is another big plus.
Wed, 16 Dec 2009 19:25:26 +0000Has anyone ordered gift cards through the Capital One rewards and not received them?? I orded 2 $100 cards 29 days ago and I called on them today because I wanted them for when went home at Christmas. They told me they could not tell me anything because it had not been past 30 days yet. So much for using them when I go home to NY... Discover Card is soo much better!
Wed, 02 Sep 2009 22:43:30 +0000Part4(Cont.) As discussed by others, many current card holders have a tiered redemption calculation requiring a minimum number of miles depending on the tier your $ value ticket falls into. This means you may be using more miles you would like to and essentially â€œwasting milesâ€. This is true for the current and past standard "No Hassle Miles Rewards" cards. For example, if you buy a $400 ticket with these other cards, you will need 60K miles for redemption (see redemption matrix earlier in the thread). Thus you don't get the one-for-one (or 100 miles to $1 value) you may have initially thought when you bought into a 1 mile per $1 (or 1.25 miles per $1) program as described in the rewards accrual portion of the offer. You must read the disclosures carefully! The "No Hassle Miles Ultra for Professionals" and ""No Hassle Miles" - Excellent Credit have a more straight forward 100 miles for $1 redemption calculation, with apparently NO TIERS. Here a $400 ticket will cost 40K miles, not 60K. This is what I have confirmed through customer service and through the website disclosures.
