Alaska Companion Fares Need To Be Paid For Using The Alaska Credit Card For Tickets Issued 9/1
One of the benefits of the Bank of America Alaska cobranded credit card is that it comes with a companion fare annually. You need to pay $99 plus any taxes or fees, previously you’ve been able to pay for this using any card you’d like but the F.A.Q now states for tickets issued after October 1st, 2019 this charge must be paid for using the Alaska credit card.
Some people preferred to use other cards either to use up travel credits, provide better travel insurances or for a better rewards earn rate. This isn’t a huge negative, but it’s still an unwelcome change.
