When comparing the Chase Sapphire against Capital One Venture, what's sticking out to me with Chase is the 1:1 point transfer to participating frequent travel programs.
We normally fly Southwest and I noticed something very intesting when you use the SW RR points. If I chose to go with the Venture card, I would need to use alot more points vs the Sapphire. For example, if a Southwest flight cost $130 I would need to use 13,000 points. Now that same flight point wise for Southwest "Wanna Get Away" price will be around 6,800 points. With Saphhire's 1:1 correlation with frequent travel programs that means I would use much less to secure the same flight. Plus, one can realize a 20% discount when booking a flight in their Ulitmate Rewards site.
I'm still torn about which one to choose. At first I thought the Venture Card was the optimal choice, but now as I do more research it seems like the Sapphire is a better choice.
