hotel’s rewards program as most important. Lauren Liss, digital partnership and
rewards lead at Capital One, explained, “This partnership makes it really easy
for customers to book at the properties they want in the way that they want in
a really rewarding way.”
The fine print
While the promotion lets cardholders earn the bonus rate at
hundreds of thousands of properties – ranging from boutique hotels to worldwide
chains – there are a few caveats:
- The promotion is scheduled to run from Jan. 30,
2018 through Jan. 31, 2020.
- You must use a United States-issued Venture or
VentureOne card that is open and in good standing to book the reservation.
- Bookings must be made through the
hotels.com/venture portal by Jan. 31, 2020.
- You must pay online at the time of the booking
to earn the bonus rewards rate.
The offer is not valid for bookings made by phone or through
the Hotels.com mobile app. Bookings for groups, bookings that include flights
and bookings where payment is made at the property are also not eligible.
