Via Million Mile Secrets reader Kent, you can get 50,000 Alaska Air miles with the Alaska Airlines credit card after spending $1,000 in 3 months!

You get:

  • 25,000 miles on approval
  • Another 25,000 miles after spending $1,000 within the first 90 days

This is a great offer for 50,000 miles!

But note that Bank of America may approve you for a different version of the Alaska Air card and give you less than 50,000 miles.

You’ll get

  • 25,000 miles if  approved for a Visa Signature card
  • 5,000 miles if approved for a Platinum Plus card
  • 3,000 miles if approved for a Preferred card

Also note that you don’t get the extra 25,000 miles if you’re approved for a Platinum Plus or Preferred card.

I really don’t like it when banks reserve the right to give you fewer miles, but don’t tell you upfront which offer you qualify for!

There is a $75 annual fee which is not waived with this offer.  And there is a 3% foreign transaction fee so you shouldn’t use it outside the US.

This 50,000 miles offer may be targeted because the landing page states, “Through this exclusive invitation only offer.”

So even if you apply and are approved, it is possible that you may not get the bonus miles if you were not targeted.  That said, Bank of America usually honors applications which have an active landing page!

But I don’t know how long this offer will last.

The offer also states that it’s for new customers and is not valid for customers who have “applied for this product in the last 12 months.”  In practice, many folks get the bonus again on Bank of America cards.

Terms say That the offer is No Valid for Customers who Applied in the Last 12 Months

Companion Ticket

You get a $99 companion ticket (plus taxes and fees) every year with the Alaska Air card.  So someone can fly with you for $99 + taxes to any destination which Alaska Air flies.  The companion ticket is only valid in coach, but it can be a good value depending on how you use it.

For example, if you wanted to fly from Austin to the Big Island of Hawaii in June 2014, a coach ticket costs ~ $1,162 for 1 person.

1 Alaska Coach Ticket Costs $1,162…but You Can Take a Companion!

Using your companion ticket you can get 2 tickets for $1,326 ($1,162 for the ticket + $99 Companion Ticket + ~ $65 taxes for the Companion Ticket) or $663 per person.  And both you and your companion earn miles on the ticket!

You can also use Alaska Air miles on partner airlines such as American, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Delta, Air France, LAN, etc.

Bottom Line

You can get 50,000 miles and a $99 Companion Ticket on the Alaska Air card.  This is the best offer which I’ve seen on the Alaska Air card!

(Remove my previous post – I had the wrong credit card company!)

An operator from BofA just told me that the offer is no longer available – even as a one-off deal – because their computer systems have been re-programmed as of December 17th so that it cannot be offered.

Is the offer expired? or if somebody who has the promotional code could please kindly share?

Hey thanks for the link darius. I just got in last night and now it’s gone!

I tried the link that most all blogs were giving and it didn’t seem to work either. I then found this link… https://www.applyonlinenow.com/USCCapp/Ctl/entry?sc=VAB3E9#apply and gave it a shot. I clicked submit and it turned the wheel once and gave me the “We apologize for any inconvenience” message. Hoping I didn’t get the worst of both worlds (no card, yes to inquiry), I called on it right away to the number given. They said no app came through. They asked if I wanted to do it over the phone. I said only if I could have the 50,000 offer. They asked what code I used. No idea since I was only using the link on the blogs, but I gave them the last 6 digits in the URL link (VAB3E9). It worked! Ended up getting approved. Not sure if anyone else is trying this, but maybe still active if you give it a little extra work!

@Jim – It depends on which state you live in. You can also usually put an amount in the “other” field when filling up the application.

@ Brian @Maury @Ozaer N. @Steve L. – The link was updated to a working link, but it didn’t last long.

link is working for me. even refreshed the page to ensure that it was not pulling from browser cache. i’m not applying for any cards now though. just thought that the info may be useful to someone.
