Earn 70,000 Miles On The Alaska Airlines Visa® Credit Card

Welcome bonus:

Earn 70,000 Alaska miles for opening the Alaska Airlines Visa® Credit Card and spending $3,000 in the first 90 days.

You’ll also get Alaska’s Famous Companion Fare™ from $99 fare plus taxes and fees after meeting the spending requirement.

Alaska miles are some of the most valuable and hard to obtain miles.


Annual fee: 

There is a $95 annual fee.


Companion fare: 

With this offer you can bring another passenger with you on a one-way or round-trip paid ticket for just $122 ($99 fare plus taxes and fees from just $23). You can also use your credit card to book companion travel for 2 other people.

This is valid anywhere that Alaska flies to, including Hawaii!

The companion will also earn their full flown miles for their tickets as Alaska still awards miles based on flight distance.


Card earnings: 

  • 3 Alaska miles per dollar on Alaska Airlines purchases
  • Earn unlimited 2 miles for every $1 spent on eligible gas, EV charging station, cable, streaming services and local transit and ride-share purchases.
  • Earn 1 mile per dollar elsewhere.
  • There are no foreign transaction fees.

10% Rewards Bonus:

Earn a 10% rewards bonus on all purchases if you also have an eligible Bank of America® account.


Free checked bag + priority boarding: 

The primary cardholder and up to 6 additional guests on the same reservation get a free checked bag and priority boarding on Alaska flights, even on Saver Basic Economy tickets. That’s a savings of $60 round-trip per bag.


In-Flight Discounts:

Cardholders get 20% back on inflight food, beverage, and Wi-Fi purchases when you pay with your card.


Alaska Lounge Discounts:

Get $100 off an annual Alaska Lounge+ Membership purchased with your Alaska card.


Alaska miles sweet spots:

Alaska’s award pricing on OneWorld partner airlines is typically excellent, and they also partner with other airlines like Aer Lingus, El Al, Icelandair, and Singapore.

Plus you can get a free stopover on one-way awards or 2 free stopovers on round-trip awards.

Which cc points transfer to Alaska?

Shmuel

Can you use the companion pass on a round trip ticket to Israel?

Momo

If I just applied for the card (the end of December) and the offer was 60,000 but I still didn’t receive the points do you think I can be matched to 70k ?

Confu

Putpac

EJ

Same…

613

same here
applied when they offered status match for delta customers

Bob

Same here. I called BoA and the agent said they couldn’t match me to the new higher offer. Hope others are successful.

bp27

Will this work for AA flights to TLV (if they ever start flying again)?

chaim

can you get this bonus offer if you have had this card in the past (no longer open) and got the old bonus offer (like 3 or 4 years ago) ?

Matt

Does anyone know if it is at allpossible to get approved for a BofA credit card if you don’t have a US phone number in your name? I live overseas and use a US address for credit card applications which have been approved by Chase and Barclay’s. I heard it’s not possible with BofA though.

David

Approved! 20k limit

Mrr

If i already booked a flight on Alaskan. Will i get free luggage if i open this card? Flight is in 10 days

AE

If you got the card and added it to your profile, please let everyone know if it works.

chaim11219

How about their fuel charges?

Jakey

If I close the card at the end of year do I keep the miles?

joe

did you got any answer?

Chubman

When you say must book by 7/31 does that mean you have to travel by that date or can I get tickets for succos as long as I book by 7/31?

joe

did you got any answer?

Berl

I didn’t see it mentioned in the post but I believe you need to spend $6K annually on the card after the first year in order to keep receiving $99 companion fare benefit.

Yossi

Dan, if I currently have the card-old acct from many years, can I get a second one and still get the bonus? Thanks

Moe

Are the sweet spot locations and points for round trip?

Zack

You wish

Natey

I also do

Valentin

Same day I heard about the Hawaiian Airline deal with Alaska I applied for the Hawaiian credit card, easy spending and good offer.

DrEssential

How soon do they grant the points if $3000 paid the first day receiving the card? Is it at the end of the month?

Do

Do you know how to book Ela flights with Alaska points?

Acc

are the sweet spots available on award availablilty only?

dev

how do you get the free one way stopover?

Me17

Can you transfer Alaska miles between family members at the same address? Or between spouses?

NCyid

Anyone know what availability is like on the short-haul AA flights?
Same as BA?
Better or worse?
At 4500…seems to be almost half as many points!

Ad

If i book an elal ticket with Alaska points before 7/31 and I want to change the date after 7/31 for the Elal ticket, will I be able to do so or I’ll have to cancel the ticket or change airlines?

A Yid

Hi Dan!
Thanks again for a great offer!
This is the emai I got from BOA:

In review
Alaska Airlines, Inc.
Your application is in review.

Thanks for choosing Bank of America. We’re carefully reviewing your application and need to check a few more things. We appreciate your patience.

You can check back at any time to see if there has been an update on the decision. We’ll also send you a letter in the mail after we’ve completed processing your application. If we have any questions, we’ll call you.

Why is my application still in review?
Any good idea what to do?

Yehudah

Does the Companion Fare apply to El Al tickets, also?

Tavster

Looks like the link to the cc in the post is dead

abe

if im not specifically planning a trip to Israel (not that i wont) is the card worth it?

avi

can I book a return flight with the points as well e.g. from London back to JFK for another 22,500 point

551

Can I get the bonus on the card, while I still have an Alaskan Airlines CC open? The one I have open, I’ve had for several years.

Or do I need to close the other one first?

ninjaleh

“You can also use your credit card to book companion travel for 2 other people.”

So…does this mean you can book one fully paid ticket for another person and a companion fare ticket for another (without you flying on that flight)?

ronyH

Is it true alaska and porter airlines from toronto will be partnering?

Chaim

Watch southwest, talking of merger with B6 which could mess with Alaska’s plans as Porter already partners with Jetblue.

zow

Thank you, Dan. Just got approved through your link. I have had both consumer and business Alaska card for nearly 10 years, so we’ll see if I get the 70K bonus now. What does the Magic 8 Ball say?

Moshe

What’s the benefit of purchasing companion tickets for 2 other people?

Mr. CC

Just got approved.
I’m happy I was able to do it with your link this time. (couldn’t refer etc.)

AAA

Will this affect for chase 5/24?

Chaim

Yes, (personal cards affect 5/24)

israeli

Can I downgrade the card after the first year, to a non-annual fee card?

mosh

How soon do they grant the points if $3000 paid the first day receiving the card? Is it at the end of the month?

Donald

That’s what we did too, still waiting for the points.

Shmuly

Is the companion pass only a once a year thing or all flights?

Sol

1. Can you redeem miles before you spend the $3,000?
2. If you do spend the $3,000, is there a three month waiting period to redeem the miles?
Thank you.

Yehuda

how do i book elal flights with alaska?

Alex

I was declined.
I have great credit and never been declined from opening a CC
Any ideas?

Aryeh

Same here, never been declined before, have excellent credit.

Zalman

Does it make sense that there is a $19 fee on top of the 4,500 miles for the short flights? Is there any way to avoid it?

Donald

Sure is. Just don’t book it and fly

ben

Do I get the free bag when I book with miles and pay the $6 with my Alaska CC?
I know that with United you do.

ben

I tried myself. It works! I made a booking with miles and paid the $5.60 with my Alaska cc. I called customer service and they told me that my reservation indicates I’m intitled to free bagage!

Shaunna

I just applied for myself and was rejected so I applied for my husband and he was rejected as well. I think it may be because we are dual citizens–this is the first time I’ve actually seen that question on an application. (Him Israel and me Czech Republic).

aaron

i applied from ISRAEL and it got flagged for fraud it took an extra 2 weeks but ended up getting approved

Dan\'s the Man

Just to confirm if I booked an EL AL ticket using Alaska miles after 7/31 I’d not longer be able to change the flight but I’d still be able to cancel and get the miles back?

Dan\'s the Man

Anyone?

Matt

@Dan
This post is not listed as an ad, why did I get an email pushing this deal from DansDeals – feedburner@dansdeals.com ?

JJ

That’s our daily email address.

Matt

Strange, I’ve never gotten an email before unless it was a reply to a comment

Yisroel

Thanks Dan just opened it!! Gotta get the elal flight in before the end of July

jb

El-Ad

Thank you Dan!!

EG

Can I cancel the card after one year and keep the miles?

zl

abraham

Yes you can

joe

abraham

My wife and I both tried and both declined even though we both have excellent credit. Is there an option to get it reconsidered?

D

WHERE IS LINK TO OFFER WITHOUT ALL THE BLAH BLAH BLAH?

yoval
