Capital One No Hassle Rewards Card - How are the rewards?
As part of my preparations for the overseas assignment, I just signed up for a Capital One No Hassles Reward Card.
I decided I was going to use a Capital One card as my new primary card while away since it doesn't charge a foreign currency fee unlike most other cards. Discover card is the only other card I know of that doesn't charge a fee, but it is accepted at few if any places in China.
I already have a Capital One card from a previous 0% balance transfer, but it doesn't have a rewards program. I called Capital One to see if they could change the account to enroll in their rewards program so I would not have a "new" credit card on my credit score, but they said I had to actually apply for a new card. I figured I might as well take as much advantage as possible of the company $ being spent on my assignment.
How is the rewards program?
This seems pretty stright forward. I earn a 1% cash back with a 25% bonus each November. The money builds up in a balance I can easily check online in my credit card account. To redeem I just need to register at https://nohasslerewards.capitalone.com and you get options to redeem with a check, credit to statement, or gift cards. There is no mimum to redeeming (except with gift cards). Appears no hassle to me!
