    • 5x miles per $1 spent on Mileage Plan Dining
    • 3x miles per $1 spent on Alaska Airlines tickets, vacation packages, and cargo purchases
    • 1x miles on all other purchases
  • Coach Companion Fare from $121
  • They will sometimes approve you for a Platinum Plus Visa or Preferred Visa card which has different annual fees and sign up bonus
  • Free checked bag for you and up to six other passengers on your reservation
  • No foreign transaction fees
  • The $100 statement credit offer is not tied to the Alaska Airlines reservation you just completed and will be applied 8-12 weeks after you make the qualifying purchases with your new card

Our Verdict

There have been 50,000 offers in the past, although these were meant to be targeted so I doubt we’ll see these again unless Bank of America/Alaska Airlines makes another slip up. Previously the best offer has been 30,000 miles (just recently released) or 25,000 miles + $100 statement credit.

Before applying for this card or asking questions in the comments, I’d recommend you read about these 20 things everybody should know about Bank of America credit cards. One of the main benefits of Bank of America is that you can apply for multiple cards from them in the same day and they will be merged into a single inquiry. You might want to pair this offer with the $200 cash offer on their Cash Rewards card. I’d be careful applying for multiple Alaska cards as some people have had their points forfeit and accounts shut down, although some of these shut downs seem to be more a result of annual fee shenanigans.

If anybody finds a direct link for this offer, please let me know in the comments.

Got plat with a CL of $3600… Talked to several CSRs. The first one tried to increase credit line and was denied because the account is too new. They didn’t even pull anything… Then all following CSR won’t do CLI for me. I read about people getting higher credit line right after getting approved for Plat and got the extra miles as well… Anyone can offer some experience on this?

When you get a plat, on the same business day, preferably during business hours, apply again. It will go to pending because it will be flagged as duplicate. Call to have the 2nd application approved as a Visa Signature and the first application cancelled. If done properly, you end up with 1 card with signup bonus and 1 hard inquiry. HTH

The first was pending and cleared after 3 days… I’m already late…

Back to life… CLIed my BBR from 700 to 2400… Got enough CL to move now… BOA is so mean in giving me CL…

Do you really get 5x on MP Dining with this card? I thought you only got that after 10 dines. If there is on 10 restriction then I will start using this card for MP Dining purchases.

“Up to” on original statement

Just got the same card for 25k + $100… any way they match to 30k?

Two questions:

1. Are there any good no annual fee downgrade options?

2. Is it better to cancel your current Alaska card and then apply?

Just applied for this card a month ago. Is it too soon to reapply? I have been picking up a card every 3 months.

Question : I got approved for Visa Signature for a CL > 10K and applied immediately for a second one which went to pending. Will Bofa split my CL from the fist card to approve the second on recon ?

It’s worth a try, but they have been consistently denying multiple apps for this card in one day ever since the heydey of AS apps last year, so don’t count on it. The good news is they were likely merged into one pull. If you lower the CL of that to 2-3k in about 2 months, then apply on the third month from this app, your odds of auto-approval are much higher. Rinse, wash, repeat.

Thanks for the input. Did a recon on 888-503-6091for the 2nd app, approved for another card with CL > 10K. They thanked me for the banking relationship since 2013, have a checking account with them.

Will BoA match the bonus and give the extra 5k if I was recently approved for 25k?

$200 offer is broken 🙁

last month applied for 3 cash rewards CCs & got only $1k CL, what’s the chance to get a signature CC with $5k CL? or would likely be a Plus with a lower CL?

Diego

Can I apply for the personal 30k offer and the busniess card 25k offer on the same day and get 1 hard pull?

I was only approved for a $2k CL, which obviously means I didn’t get the Signature; however, when I called BOFA, they confirmed that the original offer (of 30k+$100) was still tied to my account. Is that possible, or DROPR?

BoA is such a rip off. Do not apply for this card they will give you the Platinum Plus version just to screw you. Complete idiots and I’m glad that I’m done with BoA. I don’t churn cards. 775 EX score when approved for the BoA Alaska Airlines Card, $100k income, and existing BoA Siggy with $13k limit (12 year old account w/ $0 balance). Utilization 2%. 3 inquires within the last 6 months.

They gave me a $2k limit and told me there was “nothing” they could do. Complained to CFPB and CEO via email. Bait and Switch.

I Apply for the credit card from a link in your page that offers 50,000 miles total, 25,000 on your approval and 25,000 after you spend 1000 on the first 90 days, I got the firs 25000 but I didn’t get the other 25000 miles, I waste hours of my time speaking to the bank and Alaska and I don’t get nothing extra, unfortunately at that time I had an offer for 30000 miles but I opted to apply thru your link and I Loos.

sdsearch

Your “direct” (and as far as I can only remaining working) link shows 30000 miles after $1000 spend, not after first purchase. So the $1000 spend is required for both the 30000 miles and the $100 credit.

Yet all over your website (including in the new credit cards for under $1000 spend) you still say it’s 30000 miles for first purchase.

I applied ~2 weeks ago, and received the card today. Called to activate and was told the bonus offer is only 30K miles after $1K spent, but definitely no $100 statement credit…
It was definitely on the landing page when I applied, so I’ll wait and see if it ends up appearing despite what the CSR said. If not, CFPB I guess?
