Capital One Lounge at Denver International Airport

The third location of the brand-new Capital One lounge portfolio is at Denver International Airport (DEN).

This lounge opens in 2022 in partnership with the Plaza Premium Group. Flyers can find respite in the 11,200 square feet enclave in Concourse A on the mezzanine.

Additionally, guests can enjoy these amenities:

  • Premium in-lounge food and beverage experiences
  • A ready-to-eat food station with curated snacks
  • Fully-stocked bar
  • Relaxation rooms with eye covers, blankets, and other luxury amenities
  • Shower suites with complimentary towels and custom toiletries
  • Family-friendly settings with kid-sized tables and chairs
  • Secure lockers for carry-ons and personal items

Additional Capital One Lounge Locations

The first two locations are at Dallas-Ft. Worth (opening in Fall 2021) and Dulles International (opening in mid-2022).

Depending on their card, eligible Capital One credit cardholders will receive special entry pricing for these locations.

Limited-Time 1:1 Capital One Miles Transfers

There are 15+ Capital One travel partners that Venture and Spark members can transfer their Capital One miles to. However, only a few of the partners offer 1:1 mile transfers.

In addition to the new Capital One lounge announcement, for the rest of summer, there are two limited-time 1:1 transfer partners:

  • Aeromexico Club Premier (July 12 to August 8, 2021)
  • British Airways Avios (August 1 to August 31, 2021)

The ordinary Aeromexico transfer ratio is already 1:1. However, during this promotion, cardholders get a 20% transfer bonus. This means every 1,000 Capital One miles become 1,200 Aeromexico miles.

For British Airways, the transfer ratio is 2:1.5 (2,000 Capital One miles equals 1,500 Avios) outside of the August promotion.

Additionally, international travel is becoming easier this summer. These mile transfers can make it easier to book an overseas flight. You may also be able to book a partner flight on a domestic alliance partner.

100,000 Miles Capital One Venture Signup Bonus (Expired)

The final tidbit is a reminder of the Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card 100,000 miles spending bonus. You earn the full 100,000 bonus miles by spending a total of $20,000 in the first 12 months. However, if this is a high bar to achieve, you can still earn the standard bonus of 50,000 miles ($500 travel value) by spending $3,000 in the first 3 months.

This bonus is worth $1,000 in award travel redeemable as travel statement credits or booking upcoming travel. You can also transfer miles to the Capital One airline and hotel transfer partners.

Plus, one additional card benefit of note is the Global Entry or TSA PreCheck fee credit of up to $100 for one applicant. The annual fee is a reasonable $95 and purchases earn 2x miles (5x miles for Capital One Travel purchases).
