Alaska Airlines Visa Best Offer With Statement Credit
The other day I covered the news that Bank of America and Alaska Airlines are running a two month promotion on their co-branded credit card. New cardmembers who sign-up in May and June will only have to pay taxes/fees ($22) to use their Companion Fare certificate. Normally the cert requires you to pay $99 plus taxes/fees ($121 total) for the companion.
At the time of my original article I mentioned that I hoped this new offer would extend to their “secret $100 statement credit” version of the deal. You see, you can get the 30,000 point bonus and a $100 statement credit if you apply through a link that shows up when trying to make a booking on the Alaska Air website.
Finding the Better Offer
Fortunately, the news is good. If you go to the Alaska Airlines website and go through the process of making a booking, you will see the following when you get to the payment screen:
When clicking “Apply Now” you will see it all confirmed in writing as shown below. You do get the bonus, statement credit & the new Companion Fare offer!
Need to Know
This card used to be one you could get often, however Bank of America has been cracking down on people who are trying to open multiple versions of the same card. Additionally some people have had approvals rescinded if they have too many open BofA cards. Keep those facts in mind if you are going to apply.
Alaska Airlines miles are very valuable, especially when you use them to book on partners such as Cathay Pacific. Add in a $100 statement credit and an additional $99 savings on the Companion Fare and you have a winner of an offer in my book. Keep in mind the $75 annual fee is NOT WAIVED, so I see this more like a $25 credit plus the miles and Companion Fare.
