Alaska Airlines Business Card Offer Increased to 40,000 Miles
Many people in “the hobby” believe that Alaska Airlines miles are the best mile out there. And they are normally pretty hard to earn since Marriott Bonvoy is the only transfer partner. That plus Bank of America’s crack down on multiple applications has made it harder to amass these valuable miles. The increased offer on the Alaska Airlines business card should help with that. And since it is a business card it should not count towards Chase 5/24 status.
The new and improved welcome offer is as follows:
- 40,000 miles after spending $2,000 within the first 3 months
- Get a companion fare certificate. Companion flies economy with you for $121 (in the US)
- $75 annual fee not waived. ($50 per business, $25 per card)
Card’s Earning Structure & Perks
The Alaska Airlines Business card comes with the following earning structure and perks:
- 3x miles per $1 spent on Alaska Airlines tickets, vacation packages, and cargo purchases
- 1x miles on everything else
- Free checked bag for you and up to six other passengers on your reservation
- No foreign transaction fees
This is a pretty solid offer for some very valuable airline miles. You should net around $600 in value after taking the annual fee into account. That does not include whatever value you would get from the companion certificate.
Bank of America has been stingy on all applications but even more so on business applications. Sometimes they will ask for your tax returns, pay stubs, your first unborn child (kidding on that last one). So be prepared to send in that kind of documentation if you really want the card. If you are auto approved you should be fine though.
