Alaska Visa Card Adds New Benefits: 20% Back On In-Flight Purchases & 50% Lounge Discount

The PR team from the Bank of America Alaska Visa card sent out notice today of new benefits coming to the card starting tomorrow, June 1:

Bank of America and Alaska Airlines are announcing new and exciting benefits available with the Alaska Airlines Visa credit card. Starting June 1, when using their Alaska Airlines Visa card, existing and new cardholders will receive:

  • 20% back on Alaska Airlines in-flight purchases (including food, beverage, and Wi-Fi)
  • 50% Lounge day-pass discount

These new benefits come in addition to Alaska’s Famous Companion Fare offer, 3X miles on eligible Alaska Airlines purchases and a free checked bag for you and up to 6 guests on the same reservation, when you use your card.

Not sure these things will convince anyone to signup for the Alaska card, but these could be nice little perks in addition to the other value the card has to offer.

Can you use the Alaska lounge with a separate airline ticket? Could be worth it for places with crowded centurion or no PP

IME, they didnt let me do this at PDX–even though I had legit passes. However with these new perks, its worth trying to see if they will.

Is this only for the personal card, or is it for the business card as well?
