INSIDER SECRET: Alaska Airlines isn’t part of the three major airline alliances but it still have lots of useful partners, such as Emirates, Finnair, Japan Airlines, American Airlines and Cathay Pacific.

The Alaska Airlines Visa® Business credit card has two new money-saving perks:

  • 50% off Alaska Airlines-lounge day passes
  • 20% off inflight food, beverages and Wi-Fi purchases

These are the same perks that were recently added to the Alaska Airlines Visa Signature® credit card. I’ve got the Alaska Airlines Business card and I’m happy to see that the discount on inflight purchases applies to Wi-Fi, which can get expensive. The 50% off Alaska Airlines-lounge day passes is nice, but most Alaska lounges are part of the Priority Pass network and lots of other cards that come with a Priority Pass membership, like the Chase Sapphire Reserve® and The Platinum Card® from American Express, allow you to bring two guests for free.

New Alaska Airlines Business Credit Card Perks

The Alaska Airlines Business credit card has a bonus of 40,000 Alaska Airlines miles after spending $2,000 on purchases in the first 90 days of opening the account. After you complete the minimum spending requirements and each year on your account anniversary, you’ll receive a coach Companion Fare. With the Companion Fare you you can bring a companion on your Alaska Airlines flight for only $121 ($99 fare, plus taxes and fees from $22) depending on your flight.

The Alaska Airlines Business card earns Alaska Airlines miles at the following rates:

  • 3 Alaska Airlines miles per dollar spent directly with Alaska Airlines (airfare, inflight purchases, one-day lounge passes, etc.)
  • 1 Alaska Airlines mile per dollar spent everywhere else

There’s a $50 annual fee for the business and $25 per card, so you’ll pay $75 a year in annual fees if you’re the only cardholder.

I find Alaska Airlines miles to be some of the most useful and valuable airline miles you can earn. Alaska Airlines has generous award routing rules and useful partners. You’re allowed to include a free stopover even on one-way flights and Alaska Airlines has some of the best award prices for business-class flights to Asia on airlines like Cathay Pacific and Japan Airlines.
