A couple of years back, Capital One rolled out a brand new Capital One Entertainment portal, promising travelers with cards like the *venture x* and the *capital one venture card* exclusive access to sports, food, and entertainment tickets. And thanks to the bank's partnership with Major League Baseball, there's an incredible deal using your Venture Miles on baseball tickets.

You can book lower-level, dugout box seats to select MLB games for just 5,000 Capital One Venture Miles apiece! Frequent Miler just spotted that this deal has returned for another year with tickets available for games in April and May at many stadiums around the country. Ticket inventory is limited, which means you won't find this deal at every single game – and seats at some venues like Yankee Stadium might be even harder to book before tickets disappear.

So just how good of a deal are these tickets available for 5,000 miles? Really, really good.


A Firsthand Look from the Dugout Seats

When this partnership first launched, I booked four tickets at Target Field to watch the Minnesota Twins play the Detroit Tigers at home for 5,000 Venture Miles each. To give some perspective, a few days before the game, seats in this same section were going for around $150 each.

This was the view from our seats.

These special seats available through Capital One are some of the best in the house, no matter which stadium you're at. Capital One's exclusive ticket inventory at Target Field in Minneapolis is in “Row I” of section 13, just above the visiting team's dugout.

If you're paying cash for four of these seats, you're looking at a minimum of around $300 … and that's before taxes and fees. You might do a little bit better on secondary markets like StubHub and SeatGeek, but you're not going to do better than free using Capital One Venture Miles.

If you're not a Twins fan or are located in another city, don't fret. All 30 MLB teams are participating in this promotion. From the Yankees to the Padres and every stadium in between, you can currently book tickets for games in April and May with your Capital One points.


How to Find Great MLB Tickets via Capital One

Capital One appears to have just four of these top-notch, lower-level tickets available for 5,000 miles at each game. Once those tickets are sold, you'll see far more options for seats you can book all around the stadium … but at a much worse redemption rate. You'd be wise to search sooner rather than later.

To start, you'll need to log into your Capital One online account. Once on the home page, click “View Rewards.” From here, you'll want to select “Redeem for experiences.” This should bring you to the Capital One Entertainment homepage.

Once you land on the Capital One Entertainment homepage, you should see a section for MLB Single Game Tickets. And once you click on that, you'll be given the option to shop by team. Remember, all 30 MLB teams are available with exclusive Capital One ticket inventory.

I chose the Minnesota Twins and started looking at tickets. Right now, you'll be able to find seats for 5,000 miles apiece through May. Tickets must be purchased in multiples of two.

You won't find these lower-level tickets for cheap at every single game – once they're gone, they're gone. So how do you find games that still have exclusive ticket inventory available? It will take a little bit of trial and error with searching, but here's what you are looking for. Click a game to see what's available.

Since you can use Capital One's Entertainment portal to buy MLB tickets with miles throughout the season, you'll see lots of options – including some for less than 5,000 miles each. Most of these cheaper tickets are nose bleeds, so you'll need to keep looking. The seats you want will be close to the dugout and should show availability from $40 when you hover over the section. This is how you know you've found the right ones.

Once you found the right section, you should be able to click and see how many are still available for 5,000 Capital One Miles each and make your purchase.

Again, there are only four of these cheap tickets available to Capital One cardholders – and once they're gone, they're gone: You'll see all the other seats … at a far poorer value. If you don't find a lower level section showing tickets from $40, you'll need to try another date.

After poking around at games for a few other teams, there are still plenty of games available for booking at these rates in Capital One Entertainment. It may require a bit of trial and error, but you shouldn't have a problem booking two to four lower-level tickets at most games this spring. But don't wait if you find something you want: Those seats could get snapped up by other travelers.

If you don't see any availability for your desired team, check back in May. That's when Capital One has been known to make the next batch of tickets for summer games available.


Bottom Line

Baseball fans with Capital One Venture Miles have access to some fantastic lower-level tickets at an insane value! Fans with Capital One cards in their wallets can spend just 5,000 miles per ticket to sit in premium lower-level seats, including dugout seats at all MLB ballparks. It's a bit of an off-the-wall points and miles redemption, but a fun one nonetheless.

This deal is a fantastic byproduct of the MLB-Capital One partnership and it's a phenomenal value for sports fans looking to take in a ballgame this summer.

  • Nick, thanks for the suggestion but after looking into this I don’t think I could recommend it to anyone. Capital One’s website is painful to navigate through. Barely any filters (it shows every sport – can’t filter by sport) and you have to continually click show more to get the next 9 (?)3 results. Plus, if you are lucky enough to find some of these great deals, you are going to toss your cookies when you see the fees. One example was a ticket for 9750 miles (not too bad), but take a look at the fees: Service Fee $23.79, Delivery fee (to my mobile phone – seriously) $7.50, Tax $11.34 for a grand total of 15078.75 miles. Whoa! Same ticket thru MLB website $98.00 plus fees of $9.00 plus tax. By the time you pay the fees, any advantage of the deal is gone. Fees are much lower buying direct. Unless you are looking to burn miles, there doesn’t seem to be much value by the time all is said and done. Of course YMMV.

    • Dave, I think you missed the point of this post. Those are not the tickets we are suggesting buying. You should be looking at the tickets for 5k miles each. Fees on these are minimal. Also, if you follow the instructions in the post, you can filter it specifically by the MLB team you are interested in.

  • I picked up the 4 tickets for one of the June Twins/Yankees game in Minneapolis – same seats as yours I think. Right now, tickets in section 13 are $156 per ticket plus fees. I found it pretty easy – but I think there might only be 4 tickets per game. As soon as I got mine, a friend tried for the same game and no 5,000 seats were available for that day. I got all 4 for 22,000 miles (including fees).

    • You are correct. There are only 4 of these seats per game. Once they are gone, they are gone.

  • Is there another promotion going on? I got tickets in April for my daughters birthday – she loved it! They just sent me more tickets for two games in August and I didn’t purchase more. It doesn’t look like spam, so I’m confused. Just wondering if you’ve seen anything else out therre.

  • Thanks for the reminder, Nick! My wife and I are visiting the Denver area in April, booked a couple of excellent seats at Coors Field for 10k miles.

  • Been keeping an eye open for June tickets to show up, but doesn’t seem to have happened, or they sold already. At least for Cincinnati June 2.

  • I was able to book a couple of tickets but have since found out we can’t go 🙁 Am I able to gift these to someone else or sell them? Really wanted to go !!
