MCLEAN, VA--(Marketwire - Sep 24, 2012) - Today Capital One (NYSE: COF) announces the availability of Purchase Eraser, an innovative redemption feature that gives consumers the ability to easily erase the cost of previous travel expenses using reward miles. The Purchase Eraser demo videos show how consumers can use this feature via web or Smartphone. Simply make a travel-related purchase wherever you like with your Capital One rewards card, then use Purchase Eraser to erase the cost of that purchase from your statement using your miles. Purchase Eraser is easy to use, provides the flexibility to redeem on the go and enables cardholders to enjoy their rewards.
"At Capital One, we offer rewards that our customers can actually use and enjoy," said Amy Lenander, Vice President of Rewards Programs at Capital One. "Purchase Eraser makes it easy for our customers to book travel wherever they get the best option to fit their life. They keep the memories and erase the cost on their statement using their rewards."
How does Purchase Eraser Work?
Customers first make a travel related purchase -- such as a flight, cruise, hotel stay or car rental -- from their favorite travel provider using their Capital One Rewards credit card. Then they have 90 days to erase the purchase cost with their miles for a statement credit, online or on an iOS or Android device. The miles balance will update automatically and the credit will be reflected in their account balance within 5-7 business days.
"As a traveling mom I am always looking for ways to make my life a little easier. Purchase Eraser is easy to use, gives me the flexibility to redeem my points on the go and use my Venture rewards to redeem for a variety of travel charges, not just airline tickets and rental cars," said family travel expert and TravelingMom founder Kim Orlando.
