BofA Alaska 40K +$100 Bonus Offer
When it comes to the sheer number of miles, the Bank of America Alaska Airlines credit card never will be the champion. In the days of 100K bonuses, this card’s normal 30K bonus seems low on the surface, but as any experienced miles/points enthusiast will tell you Alaska miles are among the best around.
More recently we have seen 40K offers or 30K plus a $100 credit. But now there’s a new best ever offer, that also comes with a small catch.
40,000 Bonus Mile + $100 Statement Credit + Alaska’s Famous Companion Fare
Get 40,000 bonus miles plus receive a $100 statement credit and Alaska’s Famous Companion Fare™ from $121 ($99 fare plus taxes and fees from just $22) with this offer. To qualify, make purchases of $2,000 or more within the first 90 days of opening your account.
3X miles for spend on Alaska and 1X everywhere else
Free companion fare every year
Free checked bag
Compared to previous best offers, you now get either an extra $100 credit, or 10,000 more miles. But at the same time, the Companion Fare will cost $99 instead of being free. To determine which one is the best offer, it depends on what value you can get out of that Companion Fare, beyond the $99 that you need to pay.
Either way, this is a good bonus in my opinion. Let us know what you think.
