Qualifying Capital One rewards credit cardholders who have another benefit at their fingers to enhance their lifestyle. The Capital One Entertainment platform is now live and lets you get access to exclusive dining, sports, and cultural events.
Capital One Entertainment Exclusives
The Capital One Entertainment service offers cash and miles-based experiences.
The best opportunities are only available to select Capital One rewards credit cards such as the Venture, Savor, Quicksilver, and Spark Business card families.
Some of the recent opportunities include:
- Tickets to the NCAA Men’s or Women’s Final Four
- Taste America: Los Angeles
- James Beard Awards
- iHeartCountry Festival
As a cardholder, you can see how much rewards cash you need to book a ticket that’s exclusive to Capital One cardholders. Most events require between $150 and $1,000 in rewards, but the minimum can be higher for an ultimate VIP experience.
For example, the premium Capital One Venture X Rewards Credit Card earns unlimited 10X miles on hotels and rental cars booked through Capital One Travel, 5X miles on flights booked through Capital One Travel, and unlimited 2X miles on all other purchases. These rewards along with access to Capital One entertainment can add plenty of value to your card.
Plus, you can earn 75,000 bonus miles when you spend $4,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening, equal to $750 in travel, with the Capital One Venture X Rewards Credit Card.
Capital One Savor Entertainment Bonus
Capital One Savor Cash Rewards Credit Card and Capital One SavorOne Cash Rewards Credit Card cardholders have an additional reason to book tickets through this entertainment portal.
The Capital One SavorOne Cash Rewards Credit Card earns an unlimited 3% cash back on dining, entertainment, popular streaming services, and at grocery stores (excluding superstores like Walmart® and Target®), 5% cash back on hotels and rental cars booked through Capital One Travel (terms apply), 8% cash back on Capital One Entertainment purchases and tickets at Vivid Seats, plus 1% on all other purchases.
These cards are good for everyday spending.

Buying Entertainment Tickets
It’s also possible to pay cash for upcoming events, including:
- Comedy shows and theater
- Sporting events
The events that accept cash may not have the same benefits as the cardholder exclusives, but you can easily find upcoming events nearby. For example, you may only have general admission but may be able to choose a specific seating area.
One potential advantage is getting access to ticket pre-sales for the most popular events.
Booking them through Capital One Entertainment (powered by Vivid Seats) can also be more convenient than going to different ticket marketplaces.
The platform offers more than 500,000 events and you can search for tickets by city.
The cardholder exclusive experiences can be an exciting way to use your rewards if you enjoy VIP experiences and the chance to see your favorite athletes, musicians, or celebrities up close. You can also have an easier time finding tickets for the events you want to attend the most.
