A New Way to Use Your Venture and VentureOne Miles
Now those miles you’ve earned can work from home, too. Redeem them on restaurant delivery, takeout and streaming services
With the spread of COVID-19, you’re probably spending more time at home and putting travel plans on hold. But to make sure you still have flexibility with your Venture and VentureOne rewards miles, you can now use them to cover more than just travel-related expenses.
From now until June 30, 2021, you can redeem your miles for eligible restaurant delivery, takeout and streaming service purchases. Simply make a purchase, then use your miles to cover the cost within 90 days.
What Counts as Restaurant Delivery and Takeout?
Whatever cuisine you’re in the mood for, your miles can help pick up the tab. That includes food from restaurants, cafes and fast-food chains.
Even while you’re staying at home, you can still support your favorite dining spot by ordering takeout or delivery. Food subscription boxes, premade meal kits and grocery delivery don’t qualify. But restaurant delivery services like DoorDash®, Uber Eats® and Postmates® do.
What Counts as a Streaming Service?
Whether you’re craving new music or want in on the latest series everyone is bingeing, your Venture and VentureOne miles have you covered.
Just a few of the eligible streaming services include Netflix®, Hulu®, Spotify® and Disney+. Some subscription services—like those offering audiobooks or fitness programming—are not eligible.
How Does Capital One® Determine Which Purchases Are Eligible?
Eligibility ultimately comes down to category codes, which are assigned by the merchant when you make a purchase. Capital One isn’t responsible for the codes merchants use. But if the merchant you make a purchase from is categorized as a restaurant, restaurant delivery service or streaming service, you should be good to go.
Keep in mind: Purchases made through third-party payment accounts, mobile or wireless card readers, mobile or digital wallets, or similar technology may not be eligible, depending on how the technology is set up to assign category codes.
How Do I Redeem Miles in These New Categories?
You’re already earning unlimited double miles on every dollar you spend with Venture—or 1.25 miles if you have VentureOne. When you’re ready to redeem those miles in these new categories, it’s simple:
- Make an eligible purchase for restaurant delivery, takeout or streaming service.
- Sign in to your account, go to “Rewards” and tap “Cover Your Purchases.”
- Select a purchase made in the last 90 days, and use the slider to redeem your miles.
- You should see a credit on your account in 2–3 business days.
Remember, This Is for a Limited Time
Ready to start using your miles from home? You can redeem them for purchases in these new categories through June 30, 2021. So find your favorite place to order from, cue up your streaming service of choice and enjoy knowing you can cover the cost with your Venture or VentureOne miles.

This limited-time offer is non-transferable and open to eligible Venture and VentureOne accountholders. If you upgrade or change your account to another credit card product, or if your account becomes delinquent, closed, restricted, over the credit line or otherwise not in good standing, you will not be eligible for this offer.
Eligible accountholders are able to redeem miles for an account credit before 11:59 p.m. ET, June 30, 2021. Miles may be redeemed for eligible restaurant delivery, takeout and streaming service purchases that post to your account in the 90 days prior to redemption (Redemption Eligibility Period).
Purchases that post to your account outside of the Redemption Eligibility Period, cash advances, transfers and checks used to access your account are not considered eligible purchases. Purchases may take 2 to 3 days to post to your account. Account credits lower your account balance but do not count toward your minimum monthly payment obligation.
