Updated at 6:30am PT on 10/1: My $50 ACH deposit from Earn just posted to my checking account on 10/1. This was 9 days after requesting the ACH deposit.
Good afternoon everyone, I hope your weekend is going well. A few months ago, Doctor of Credit wrote about SaverLife and how to earn up to $60 by saving money in an existing savings account. Free money? Sign me up! SaverLife is a non-profit funded by sponsors like Capital One, Chase and others that encourages members to save $20 per month to earn a $10 reward. I should have earned the full $60 reward, but I accidentally moved funds from my savings account to another account for a few weeks, so I wasn’t eligible for the $10 reward that month. Oh well, I am very happy with $50. If you were a member of SaverLife, you should have received the following email. Click the Claim Rewards button to get started. If you are interested in joining SaverLife, I think the $60 promo is still running. Here is my referral link.
This “don’t leave home without two of these” story began when I received an email from a friend. It was titled, “Big Request.” Let me start by saying my friend is an experienced traveler and spends six months a year in Mexico, yet still she made a big mistake. Here’s what she wrote:
“I have a big request for you: My Capital One Visa credit card was hacked, so I had to cancel that account. However, that is an important card for me to have in Mexico, because they do not charge a foreign currency exchange fee on purchases. So, they are sending me a new card in the mail, and say it should arrive in 4-6 days. Capital One does everything online and it was difficult to tell them to send it here to Mexico. Please check all mail from Capital One, find the card, and FedEx it to me here in Mexico. I am sorry to burden you with this, but there are levels of bureaucracy involved here that are daunting.”

Good afternoon everyone. A few months ago, I signed up for a Capital One 360 Money Market account with a $200 sign up bonus (thanks Doctor of Credit). The promo seemed simple enough, sign up for a money market account, using promo code SAVE200, and then deposit $10,000 before December 31, 2017. I even received the following email on November 27 confirming the details from DOC. I thought it was going to be smooth sailing, but after waiting 2+ months since the December 31, 2017 deadline, I got antsy and went in search of my $200 bonus…
Good morning everyone, I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s post on How to Redeem Capital One Venture Rewards “Miles” for Travel Purchases. In today’s post, I will show you how to book flights and pay with your Capital One Venture Rewards “miles.” This process is very similar to booking paid tickets using Chase Ultimate Rewards Points, Citi Thank You Points, and American Express Membership Rewards Points. To get started, log into your Capital One account and click your “miles” balance.
Good morning everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend (with the exception of the recent AMEX Membership Rewards Changes). My girlfriend and I are going to Greece and Malta this Summer, so we are busy booking flights, making hotel reservations, and researching things to see / eat / do in those countries. During the airfare booking process, we have been using my girlfriend’s Capital One Venture Rewards “miles.”
Before we started redeeming the “miles” for this trip, she had 122,435 “miles”, which is equivalent to $1,224.35 in travel. In this post, I will show you how to redeem Capital One Venture Rewards “miles” for travel purchases. In tomorrow’s post, I will show you how to book airfare directly through the Capital One travel portal and how to pay with Capital One Venture Rewards “miles.” Without further ado, log into your Capital One account and click on your “miles” balance.
