Bank of America Alaska Airlines Business Card Now 42,000 Mile Bonus (& Possible $100)

Update 11/30/19: People who received the letter talking about a $100 statement credit should now have received that $100 credit (check your accounts). I’m unsure if people who apply now will receive the letter (and the $100 statement credit) or not. Hat tip to aksurvivorfan

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Receive a sign up bonus of 42,000 miles after $2,000 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 checked bag for you and up to six other passengers on your reservation
  • No foreign transaction fees

Our Verdict

Interestingly after applying some people are being sent a letter offering a $100 statement credit after $500 in spend as well. This makes it more similar to the personal bonus offering 40,000 miles & $100. Previous best offer on this card has been 40,000 miles or 30,000 miles + $100. One nice thing about Bank of America business cards is that they do not report to your personal credit report, this is useful for anybody trying to stay under the Chase 5/24 rule.

I will add this to our list of the best business credit card bonuses. If you have any questions about Bank of America/this bonus I’d recommend reading this post before asking them in the comments below.

BOA Business department, any data points on matching offers?

Aaron

They said they couldnt match but that I could apply again. Not the answer I was expecting for sure.

One thing to highlight here is that Bank of America routinely asks for business documents and/or personal tax returns for this card.

Yep… unless I get an instant approval i would not bother.

I guess they really want to know if you own a business. Too many hoops to jump through for me.

VM

Exactly, just too many hoops to jump through. Also everyone has their own comfort level but there hasnt been a credit card for which I am willing to send my entire personal income tax return.

It was pretty painless for me. They asked for info from various lines of my business tax return. If you have a legit biz, pretty easy to send them docs/articles of incorporation/etc if they ask for them (which Citi did).

That was not my experience (applied about 3 weeks ago) with my “business”.
The application was not immediately approved, it took a week maybe until I saw the card in online bank. But there were no additional requests from BofA.

PS I’m Plat Honor but not sure if it matters.

Deleted. NVM, didn’t read.

How long after canceling this card will B of A approve me again. (I am only 3/24 with a legit business, but I canceled this card about 2-3 months ago.)

I am only seeing the $50 per company and $25 per individual option. I don’t see the $75 per individual and $0 per company option.

Well I was going to apply for it but users are saying BoA asks routinely for documents. I’ve had a biz card with them before but I’ve never been asked regarding documentation (although I do have a checking account with them). Is this something new? Or should I go ahead and risk the hard inquiry?

Josh

Have had 2 of these cards and never asked for documents. I think if you have other Business cards at other banks that they can see they won’t ask for documents.

I’ve applied for this card 2 weeks ago (old 40K bonus offer) and wasn’t approved instantly. Card arrived 2 weeks later. No questions/documents was ever asked.

Event employee id request?

I wrote “None” and it worked.

Do they really send a 1099 for the sign up bonus? Also, is this the link to use from an employee to get the extra 2000 miles?

“In addition, if you apply through this exclusive offer provided by an Alaska Airlines Employee you will earn an additional 2,000 bonus miles if you make any combination of Net Purchase transactions totaling at least $2,000 (exclusive of any fees, including the annual fee, returns and adjustments) that post to the account within 90 days of the account open date. The value of this reward may constitute taxable income to you or your company. Bank of America may issue an Internal Revenue Service Form 1099 (or other appropriate form) to you or your company that reflects the value of such reward”

Applied this morning. Called about the statues of my application and the CSR said their system was down for the past 36 hours and they don’t have my application.

Also received $100 after $500 spend offer with the card. I don’t think it was a part of the original offer.

Got hit with a credit inquiry on my transunion report. Thought BoA didn’t report to personal credit report for business cards?

Anyone have an Alaska employee ID I can use for the 2k bonus? I’m assuming they get some bonus too.

Type in “None” and it’ll work.

Got the $100 statement credit letter but my statement closed after meeting the minimum spend and no $100 credit was given.

Do you need to hit $500 within 30 days?

BW

Jimmy not sure, but I hit it within 30 days and no credit yet. Also didn’t get the companion fare either, but got the 42k.

Alex
