Redeeming Capital One Rewards

To use rewards points, log on to your Capital One account and go to the rewards page. Your accumulated points and cash value will be displayed. Follow the prompts to redeem points. You can receive cash back, purchase gift cards or donate money to charitable organizations. You can use all of your points or just part of them. The No Hassle program also lets you set up automatic cash back payments whenever a threshold amount is reached. You can also redeem your points by calling Capital One at 800-228-3001.

Using No Hassle Miles

The No Hassle program works the same way if you have a Capital One account that awards miles instead of points. However, you can also use reward miles to pay for airline tickets, lodging and car rental. One way to do this is to book your flight, accommodations or car rental using your Capital One rewards card. Then go to your online account and apply your miles to pay for the purchase. You can also book travel arrangements through Capital One and apply your miles that way.
