This is sort of a bummer for those of us with Capital One Venture X Rewards Credit Cards.
American Express did the same thing several years ago with its Priority Pass benefits offered across a few cards.
The only credit card (at least, that I know of) still offering restaurant (and distillery and brewery) benefits as part of its Priority Pass feature is the Chase Sapphire Reserve®.
But there are still a few things to keep in mind.
The Venture X’s Priority Pass benefit allows cardholders to bring in unlimited guests. Plus, Venture X members can add up to four additional cardholders for free.
On top of that, Capital One Venture X Rewards Credit Cardmembers can access dozens of other airport lounges worldwide thanks to its Plaza Premium perk. Plus, there’s the (growing) network of Capital One lounges; the only one open is at Dallas-Ft. Worth International Airport (DFW).
Will I Cancel My Venture X Because of This Change?
Oh, heck no. My Venture X isn’t going anywhere. (Actually, it goes everywhere with me. It’s always in my wallet and I use it for non-bonused purchases because it earns at least 2X miles per dollar.)
And the Venture X’s $395 annual fee is very easy to earn back (and then some). I’m pleased with the card. Plus, the unlimited guests (though I rarely travel with more than one or two people who don’t have Priority Pass cards) and Plaza Premium benefits are a bonus.
I still hold a Chase Sapphire Reserve® and can use that card’s Priority Pass at airport restaurants if I really want to. (Though I can’t seem to find a lot of participating restaurants at the airports I frequent.)
The Capital One Venture X Rewards Credit Card’s Priority Pass Select benefit loses its airport restaurant feature at the end of this month. That makes the Chase Sapphire Reserve® a unicorn of sorts, as it’s the only card whose Priority Pass membership still gives users some sort of credit at participating airport restaurants.
That said, the Venture X still is a great card — and features Plaza Premium and Capital One Lounge access, too.
