One feature of the Capital One Venture X is that is comes with an annual anniversary bonus of 10k Capital One Miles. This is pretty incredible since the Venture X has a $395 annual fee and already yields a $300 travel credit in the portal. The 10k mile anniversary bonus is worth, at minimum, $100 in the Capital One portal, but could be transferred into any partner program and potentially used in their unique award charts. Let’s take a look at how it works.
The worst case scenario in year 2 of card membership is receiving $400 worth of travel credits in the Capital One travel portal on a $395 fee. Not too shabby!
When does the Capital One Venture X 10k miles anniversary bonus post?
I got my card in the beginning November of 2021 and I received my anniversary bonus in mid December of 2022. My first year would have completed around November 10th, so this is roughly 58 weeks after getting the card.
How can I use the Capital One 10k mile anniversary bonus
You can either use them to purchase $100 worth travel in the Cap1 travel portal or transferred into partners

What are the other benefits of the Capital One Venture X
