Bank of America Alaska Airlines Business Card Now 32,500 Mile Bonus

Bonus is available again. Thanks to reader S for pointing this out.

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Receive a sign up bonus of 32,500 miles after $1,000 spend on the Bank of America Alaska Airlines business card

Card Details

  • Annual fee of ($50 per company and $25 per card for business level earning plan or $0 per company and $75 per card) is not waived in the first year
  • Card earns at the following rates:
    • 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 (free first year)
  • 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

Our Verdict

Same offer is available on the personal card, but that’s not as good as the 30,000 mile + $100 statement credit bonus we’ve previously posted about. Bank of America does not report business cards to your personal credit report, useful for those trying to stay under 5/24. This isn’t the most exciting or best offer out there, but might be interesting if you highly value Alaska miles. 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.

On a recent Alaska flight (and actually returning from Alaska), I picked up a paper app that provided for 31k miles and $100 statement credit. It just requires the employee ID of any Alaska Airlines employee. I wonder if you can get an ID from their airline phone reps.

Nice. I think i’m going to take the plunge on this. Hoping to book my parents a trip next year to India in Cathay Business class.

Gotta figure out the return flight.

Cathay Business only requires 30k to India? wow. It costs 70k from BOS to HKG

50k using AS. 70k using AA.

I assume you fly out of one of the hub cities where Cathay has nonstop light to HK?

If I or my wife have recently gotten the 30k offer card…in the last month, will they allow me to get the 100 statement credit?

You have to have an Alaska employee # to enter, same as the personal card with this same bonus. If any Alaska employees would like to volunteer their referral ID number….

yeah, that’s true. so what’s the workaround on that?

Is this covered under the 2/3/4 rule?

BofA seem to be getting even harder with business apps, at least from the few recent data points on FT, even for people with actual businesses. I do love me some AS miles though so maybe I’ll give it a shot, so far have only done the personal.

Indeed. I applied for this in Jan or Feb, and was asked to provide copious documents to evidence the business… this despite having another business card with them, and having had this card in the past. I considered doing it, but the thought of sending them that amount of information (cannot recall precisely, but it was tax returns for last couple years plus a couple other items) to have bouncing around in their laxly-secured servers, just for a credit card, made me queasy.

Same situation. Except I did it AND was denied. I have a legitimate business that is 8 years old. But I went from a sole prop to a Corp last year and they denied me on the basis of my business supposedly being too new, even though I provided them tax returns from the sole prop work and they wouldn’t budge.

I hadn’t opened any cards with them in the prior 24 months.

did you try calling reconsideration?

Instantly approved. Closed my previous AS biz card in June (limit was at $500 for about 10 months prior). Application asked for “employee id” and filled in “NA” and was approved regardless. I’ve held the personal card for 15 months with a $500 credit limit for most that time.

Applied for 30k last week. Instantly denied for too many recently-opened (non-BofA) accounts. Flew anyways and saw the 32.5k, but didn’t feel bad at all…

How would you guys rate this offer against the other one that offers 30k miles but $0 companion certificate?
it’s 2,500 extra miles against potentially saving $99 on travel… what do you guys think?
thanks.

Give them more information on your sole proprietor business

Yeap. And even that’s no guarantee. I got rejected after providing two years of tax returns. This was for a different BoA Business card.

They may offer you the option to open a $1,500 CD/12mo

Not sure when/if this expired, but looks alive and well to me. Applied just now.

I think it depends on your state. BofA Personal in OR pulls EXP but Biz INQ are TU – I think I read a DP that TU is now the standard (Biz) but I’m not positive about that
