Companion Fare Details
This card currently has a limited time offer. Where you get a free companion fare (you just pay taxes and fees). To receive this free companion fare you must spend $1,000 within the first 90 days of account opening (this is also required for the 30,000 miles & $100 bonus).
From year two onwards you also receive a companion fare, but you must pay $99 and taxes and fees. There are some rules to keep in mind for the companion ticket:
- Can be used towards one round-trip coach fare on Alaska Airlines or Virgin America
- Must purchase a paid (e.g no award tickets allowed) published coach airfare on the same itinerary booked at the same time
- Must be booked on alaskaair.com
- Code is automatically applied to the primary cardholders Alaska Airlines My account profile
The previous offer was already one of the best credit card sign up bonuses and it’s only gotten better with this addition. Bank of America has matched bonuses in the past, so if you’ve recently applied and want this new free companion ticket it’s worth asking (most people haven’t had luck getting this particular bonus matched). Before applying for this or any other Bank of America card, I’d recommend reading this post detailing everything you should know about their credit cards. They have also be limiting some people to a maximum of four cards recently.
