Capital One Rewards vs Virgin Atlantic Mastercard

Postby Chris T » Sun Mar 29, 2015 8:45 pm

I've been racking my brain trying to figure out what is the best option for me: I have excellent credit. I also travel in the US AND to Europe / UK a lot. I currently have an Amex Delta Skymiles Blue card for which I collect Delta airmiles.

I recently started an LLC for which I need a new credit card (and going forward will use this new card for 90% of my purchasing and travel).

I like to fly Virgin Atlantic to the UK and do so once or twice a year.

I've been trying to decide between the Virgin Atlantic World Elite Mastercard and the Capital One Rewards card. Virgina At. Card gives me 1.5 Miles = $1. Capital One gives me 2mi = 1 'point'. HOWEVER, the actual 'value' of these points will vary depending on the cost of airline flights at the time of purchase, so they're not equivalent to the VA 'miles'.

My question is: which would be best for me if I primarily want to save up the most airmiles possible for Virgina Atlantic flights for me and my family. Keeping in mind that VA DO tend to sometimes alter their airmile requirements and have limited seats for air mile passengers (which makes it a Disadvantage to have the VA card…).

Your help would be most appreciated!
