Massive 80K Offer For The Alaska Airlines Signature Visa (Targeted)

Reddit user clumsynuts (yes that is the name 😂) shared a targeted mailer they got for the Alaska Airlines Signature Visa card.  It is a pretty stellar offer for some of the most desired airline miles out there.  People love to use Alaska’s partner award chart for premium cabin bookings.  Let’s take a look at the offer.

alaska airlines elevated offer is worth a chase 5/24 slot

Details of the Offer

  • Earn 40,000 miles after spending $2000 in 3 months.
  • Earn an additional 40,000 miles after spending $12,000 in the first 12 months.
  • 0% APR on balance transfers for 12 months
  • $75 annual fee is not waived

This is quite a bit better than the current public 50,000 mile offer after spending $2,000 within the first 3 months.  Some people may prefer that offer though with the $10,000 less in spend.  You could do worse than earn 4X Alaska miles on all purchases though for $10,000.

Final Thoughts

If you got one of these mailers in the mail let us know in the comments below.  Do you plan on grabbing it? Do you think this offer is substantially better than the 50K public offer?  Or would you prefer the lower spending requirement?

  1. Hey Mark,

    I checked the mail yesterday and received a slightly different version of this offer:

    40,000 Bonus Miles after you make $2,000 or more in purchases within the first three months + 40,000 after spending a total of $12,000 or more within the first nine months of opening your account.

    What are your thoughts on my offer? I have a purchase coming up for $2,000, which I can hold off paying for, earning the first bonus within days of opening my account.

    From there, I would need to spend $1,000 a month for nine months. What are your thoughts?

    • If you won’t struggle to hit the spend and value Alaska it is a pretty good offer in my opinion. If that would max out your spending and keep you from getting other cards during that time span then the public 50K offer may be better with the $2K in spend.

      • @Mark You make so many valid points. I think I’m going to go for the CSP 80K UR offer and also apply for the Chase Freedom Flex. If I include the min spend, that will be 104,000 UR points for only $4,500 in spend.

        If I do that, perhaps I’ll go after the Amex Platinum 100k offer.

    • I don’t think they would offer it over the phone etc. but worth a try if you really want it I guess.

  2. Alaska miles are certainly worth less than they were a year or two ago if you’re hunting for aspirational redemptions. Now Cathay only allows one first class award seat per flight, JAL space in first class is simply not available, and even the eye watering prices for Emirates first class are gone. I’m hoping that Qatar prices for business class will be 60k or less each way but I’m not holding my breath.

  3. I’ve never really understood the fascination with AS miles. I don’t really care about trying to fly Emirates or ever going to Asia, so I guess the appeal is lost on me? When I surprisingly got approved for the BoA biz cash rewards last month I applied for the Alaska biz on same day just for the hell of it (used the same pull, no downside) & got approved. I was more interested in the net $125 bonus than the 40k miles… I guess it’s just me?

    • I believe you’re referring the Alaska when stating AS. If that is the case then I can say the Alaska credit card for points travel is great especially since they just joined One World giving you access to receive Alaska points when flying multiple partner airlines. I use my Alaska points yearly for 2-3 trips to Europe in Business Class via British Airways (partner airline) and I’m on different airline emails to see when they are having specials then I can travel on less points. I put everything including all utilities on my card and pay it off monthly (no interest paid) and make sure I’m using it at the locations for shopping, resetaurants… for additional points. You’d be amazed at how effective Alaska points are for round the world travel. I hope that was helpful in how the credit card can be a great travel resource 🙂

    • I agree with you, Parts Unknown. I mean, I like Alaska Airline and have always enjoyed my flights on their craft but perhaps I’m jaded by the good ol’ days when we could obtain 25K bonuses simply for being approved. Both the business and personal cards were churnable every quarter and many of us thus “earned” 200,000 miles per year with no spend whatsoever. Times change but the idea of spending so much just to earn so (relatively) little has no appeal to me.

    • I think those are the two big draws and if you aren’t looking to do either there is a lot less value for sure.

  4. Received the same offer yesterday in the mail. Applied online with the code and was instantly approved for a very generous credit line. 80K Alaska miles for 12k of spend is a nobrainer.

    • Can you tell me what the ‘source code’ was? I just finished spending $2000 to get 50,000 miles, and called BofA to ask if I could get the 80,000 offer. Representative couldn’t find the offer and asked if I had the source code.
