Bank of America Alaska 30,000 Miles + $200 Statement Credit

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Bank of America is offering a bonus of 30,000 miles & a $200 statement credit on the Alaska Airlines card when you spend $2,000 or more within the first 90 days

Card Details

Our Verdict

There is another version of this offer that offers 40,000 miles + $100 statement credit. Most people will prefer that offer. Interestingly we first found that offer via a dummy booking and that’s how this new 30,000 + $200 offer is being advertised, so it’s possible that the 40,000 mile + $100 will be pulled so might make sense to apply for that card if you’re interested. If you have any questions about Bank of America cards I’d recommend reading this post first. Keep in mind it can be difficult to get approved for Bank of America cards and they offer a lot of increased bonuses currently:

anyone been able to crack the code on cards in last 6 months for BoA cards? I know about the 2/3/4 rule, but the last couple times ive been denied was for too many new accounts in last 6 months… hoping people can come in here with insight on this. surprised its not talked about more often.

When I applied for Amtrak BOA last month I was auto denied. 0/6, 2/12,8/24

thanks for datapoint. it seems to be some odd, combination of factors. Ive heard that relationship is important which I have been building with them. I guess i’ll be the next datapoint later this month / early October when I apply at 1 card last 6 months.

Well, if 8/24 BofA cards, that’s not really a surprise.

he was clearly saying 8/24 all cards, not specific to BoA

Apparently not clear enough 🙂
The 2/3/4 rule is only about BofA cards, so it’s to that relevant.

Interesting, I was autoapproved for the Amtrak (my second, other one still open) at 2/6, 3/12, 10/24. Maybe has something to do with the checking account I just opened with them?

i just got approved both for the Alaskan Airlines card and the Bank of America Cash reward card in the same day. I was highly expecting to get denied for one, or both.

I’ve opened about 6 cards in the past year prior to that (2 in the last 6 months). My current Credit Limit on all my available cards is currently 2.5x my annual income, which I had read can be a problem as well.

I read that they highly value existing customer relationships. I had opened a checking account with them for the $300 checking bonus, and that checking account was only about a month old.

I’m still surprised i got approved for both cards considering all the denials I have seen (and BofA denied me for the Cash Rewards card about a year and a half ago).

This is true. I have a checking account with BoA and opened more than 5 cards in 2 years. I also closed two in the past, they still approved the Alaska credit card for me. But here’s a catch, they don’t seem to have very reliable tracking system of how much you spend. I have met the $2000 spending requirement, but I had to call to work things out.

I was approved two BoA cards in the last 6 months: premier rewards and Alaska.
I was around 5/24.

I recently did an App-O-Rama with Alaska Personal, Alaska Biz, and Premium Rewards. 5 Personal and 1 biz card opened in the past 6 months prior. I have had about a 12 year history banking with BOA and have had one of their cards the whole time.

Hope the data point helps
