Shoppers should get ready to stuff some more perks onto their Capital One Rewards credit cards when they shop during the Thanksgiving weekend this year. The company's shopping portal, known as Perk Central, will increase certain rewards and redemptions during the November holiday week, the company revealed in a release.

Capital One credit card holders who shop using the Perk Central site from Nov. 25-28 will find additional reward offerings from many of the more than 40 retailers that can be shopped from the portal. Some of the announced bonuses include:

  • LandsEnd.com (clothing) is increasing its reward by 100 percent
  • Macys.com (clothing, jewelry, housewares) by 40 percent
  • Lenovo.com (computers) will up rewards by 100 percent
  • TigerDirect.com (computers) to increase by 67 percent
  • Lego.com will increase rewards by 100 percent
  • Gamestop.com is offering a 40 percent increase

Capital One also announced redemption specials for card holders who wish to redeem current rewards. From Nov. 18 to 21, in addition to items like the iPad2 or the Sony Tablet S, customers will be able to redeem rewards for such items as the Magellan Roadmate 1324, a TaylorMade Bumer SuperFast 2.0 Driver and the Sharp Aquos 60" LCD HDTV available for redemption.

The Perk Central shopping portal is accessible for credit card holders via the Capital One website's Online Banking section. Users can search a list of retail partners and receive additional reward points for shopping these retail partners when they use the link provided by Capital One.

Shopping directly from a partner retailer's website will not give credit card holders the bonus rewards, just the standard reward available for applicable purchases under their card's agreement.

Perk Central is available to all Capital One Rewards credit card holders. There is no fee to shop via the portal or to join Perk Central.
