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

Update 6/10/20: Offer showing again, 40,000 + $100 still showing as well. So seems like they are displaying both deals at the same time (although on different tickets). Hat tip to @milesperday

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:

Today I Realized I need a Alaska credit card to book a ticket using the companion fare. I had cancelled my Alaska card in February. So I applied and was immediately approved for a new Alaska card. Lol/24, FICO high 700s.

“This card will not be available to you if you currently have or have had the card in the preceding 24 month period” is not being enforced.

Did you get another 40k/30k sign up bonus for this new card?

Good question. I’m still waiting for my $100 credit after nearly a month. I have not yet used the card for any Alaska Airlines purchases.

Great airline. They mainly cover the western US, but you can check if they cover your city:

Has BOFA relaxed their approval guidelines?

Applied for the past 2-3 years *always* denied, this time approved with $12k CL, currently have a BOFA Alaska personal and “business” credit card. Very shocked and surprised I was approved. I did request BT during application, yeah 3% BT fee which I’m fine with.

LOL/24, FICO 700’s

40k + $100 offer appeared after using a referral ink:

I am going to close this card this month, AF coming up. Is there any retention offer or AF waived DP?

Last time I tried, there was none. But they’ve made offers in the past.

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.

LC

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).

very nice and congrats btw! Hoping I can pull off even 1/2 apps later this month!

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

I can add that opening a checking account made the difference for myself and P2. Previously we had gotten a few denials for BofA cards but after opening checking accounts about a year ago, we have both been easily approved.
