What Would You Give Up For A Cheaper Flight This Summer?

Rewards Trends

Additional trends revealed by this quarter's Capital One Rewards Barometer include:

  • Over the past year, respondents' likelihood to redeem credit card rewards from a mobile device if they could easily do so nearly doubled (from 7 percent to 12 percent).
  • Cash remains the top rewards card currency at 46 percent, followed by points (41 percent) and miles (31 percent).
  • Since the spring of 2012, 40 percent of rewards card holders consistently reported a preference for a simple rewards card offering the same earn rate across all purchases.

Rewards Tips

Travelers can save money and create satisfying summer vacations by following these simple tips from Capital One Rewards:

  1. Dining on a Budget: Foodies can subscribe to deals sites in cities they plan to visit and purchase discounted reservations on food tours and/or restaurants, then save even more by redeeming credit card rewards toward that purchase. If given the option to use rewards toward a food tour, most consumers (28 percent) would book in San Francisco or New Orleans, followed by New York (23 percent) and Chicago (14 percent).  
  2. Free Yourself of Travel Restrictions: Cards not tied to a particular airline or hotel brand offer more flexibility to book the best deals. ( http://www.capitalone.com/rewards/) In fact, the Rewards Barometer revealed that of those who switched rewards cards in the past three years, 22 percent deliberately stopped using their co-branded card.
  3. Go Mobile: Travelers can use a mobile phone to receive real-time information through their credit card provider such as deals and fraud alerts. According to the survey, thirty four percent of those with a mobile phone search for nearby restaurants, gas stations, coupons and deals while on vacation.

Survey Methodology *The survey was conducted by Prosper from April 17–23, 2013 among U.S. Adults 18+ who indicated that they currently have a "rewards credit card" – that is, a credit card with a rewards program that is issued by a bank or credit card company. The total sample size for this survey was N=1,045, with a margin of error of +/- 3.1%. Prosper provides advanced business intelligence by integrating a variety of data including economic, behavioral, and attitudinal data. To learn more: www.ProsperDiscovery.com
