Credit Karma partner Capital One recently rebranded two great travel rewards credit cards, the Capital One’s No Hassle Miles Excellent and No Hassle Miles Ultra for Professionals, into the new benefits and sleek look of the Capital One® Venture® Rewards Credit Card and Capital One® VentureOne® Rewards Credit Card.
The Capital One® Venture® Rewards Credit Card is replacing the No Hassle Miles Ultra for Professional while the Capital One® VentureOne® Rewards Credit Card replaces the No Hassle Miles Excellent. The two preceding No Hassle cards that have long been two of the best value travel rewards cards, so what can we expect with these chic changes?
If you are willing to splurge extra for the Capital One® Venture® Rewards Credit Card, the better mileage earning power and customer service upgrades may appeal to those who travel often and in luxury. But if the price tag is too steep, the Capital One® VentureOne® Rewards Credit Card is still a great alternative with no annual fee and a better mile-to-dollar ratio than its predecessor.
One thing to keep in mind is that both cards require excellent credit, especially with these excellent travel benefits and rewards redemption. While there aren’t huge changes to the new Venture line, the two new cards are still a welcome step up in luxury, value, and mileage earning power than the No Hassle line. These credit cards are designed with jet-setters in mind, who will love earning miles faster and at a better redemption rate with these two new cards. We definitely can’t complain about better cards and better customer service. While it’s R.I.P to No Hassle Excellent and Ultra, Capital One® Venture® Rewards Credit Card and Capital One® VentureOne® Rewards Credit Card are poised to take their place as our favorite travel reward cards.
