The Capital One Venture Rewards Card has doubled its sign up bonus from 20,000 to 40,000 bonus miles after $3,000 in spend within the first 3 months and the $59 annual fee is waived the first year.

Capital One Venture Rewards miles cannot be transferred to other rewards programs. However you can use them to directly purchase hotels and flights through their site. Because you are purchasing your hotels and flights you also receive reward points or miles for any programs in which you are a member. For instance, if you use 30,000 Venture Rewards miles to purchase a $300 flight with American Airlines you will earn Advantage miles on that flight even though you purchased the flight with reward miles.

The Venture card earns 2 miles for each dollar spent in all spending categories.
