Alaska Airlines Visa with 25,000 Miles Bonus & $100 Statement Credit

Via One Mile at a Time, Alaska Air has an offer for 25,000 Alaska Air Mileage Plan miles (after 1st purchase), plus a $100 statement credit after spending $1,000 within 3 months.  The regular offer is for 25,000 miles after your 1st purchase, but you don’t get the $100 statement credit.

You have to purchase a flight to get the offer for 25,000 miles plus the $100 statement credit, but here’s a direct link to application page.  If you do apply, please take lots of screen shots.  A reader didn’t get the $100 statement the last time this was available, so as always, your miles may vary.

Alaska Airlines allows you 24 hours to cancel a reservation, free of charge, but I wouldn’t book a dummy reservation just to get access to the offer.

To see the offer, go to Alaska Airlines’ webpage.  Enter an origin, destination, and date and search for a flight.  Once you have chosen your flights on the next page, start checking-out.

Click “Add to Cart”

After checking-out, you will see the offer mentioned about half-way down the page.

Enter your personal and payment information, and the offer will appear again near the bottom of the checkout page:


After you have successfully booked a reservation, you will see the link to the offer.

Alaska Air MileagePlan miles are quite valuable because you can redeem them for award travel on their Partner Airlines, including British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Emirates and Qantas.

Bottom Line

The Alaska Air card is issued by Bank of America, so this could be useful if you’ve got lots of miles and points cards from other banks.  Folks also report being able to get Bank of America credit cards more than once, but as always, your experience could be different.

I was only approved for the classic account. So not worth a hard pull. Should have mentioned it in the article.

Hi! I have had a mileage card through Alaska Airlines for the past few years. I have a decent credit limit and use this card to collect miles for everything, I have 5 kids and use the companion tickets every chance I get. Are there any options to have more than one card at a time to get another companion ticket and could I get the extra 25,000 bonus miles? I am also curious as to what the Platinum plus card is and how it is obtained?

Thank you!

@Sarah – Folks report being able to get the card again.

Hello!! I applied for the card n received 25.000 bonus point but about 1 or two was later they sent me another card for same mileage program. I didn’t activate the 2nd card n finally called like 2 wrk later to cancel the 2nd one to avoid fees. I noticed they sent me additional 25000 points and second companion ticket. ( which total 50000) Will i lose my second 25000 points n companion ticket after i already cancel 2nd card??? Thanks

@Trang n – The points stay in your account.

Hi Daraius,

My husband and I are great fans of your site 🙂

We’re actually helping our parents get to Kenya at the end of 2014 using Alaska-to-Emirates points. I’ve been finding conflicting answers to the churn-ability question: How often can you churn the Alaska card? What are the rules about opening/closing the cards for points? Thanks in advance!

Thank you! That is very helpful.
