Increased Offer: Alaska Airlines Business Card Now 40K ($600 In Value)

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.

Offer Details

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

Direct Link to Application

Conclusion

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.

    • I am guessing you would be applying as a sole proprietor. No real tips just be honest with the application in case they do ask for documentation. You would have a better chance of approval if you have an existing relationship with BOA like a checking account etc.

  1. Not even going to bother applying, even though I really want the card. But I’m a sole-proprietor and don’t have an EIN nor much documentation. This is a pass for me.

    • Some people get it without needing any documentation. Could always apply and if they ask just refuse. Would burn a hard pull but wouldn’t count against 5/24
