The personal Alaska Airlines credit card is one of my favorite airline credit cards. Part of that is because I like Alaska Airlines a lot, part of it is because it offers free checked bags for up to six (6)! different people. However, the other reason involves the value of the Alaska points. Whether you have the personal card or not, the business card is also worth taking a look into. That’s especially true right now, as there is an all time high sign up bonus being public ally offered!
Previous best offers on the credit card were 40,000 points or 30,000 points plus $100. However, we are seeing an offer that’s even higher than those two. After spending $2,000 within the first 3 months, you are able to earn 42,000 points. If we value these points at 1.8 cents per point, that would be worth $756, a total return of 37.8% on all of the spend for the sign up bonus.
Additionally, it may be possible to get the same offer with an extra $100 credit. Some people are reporting that after getting the card, they received an offer to earn the additional $100 after spending $500.
Alaska Airlines Business Credit Card Summary
The Alaska Airlines Business Credit card comes with an interesting annual fee setup that depends entirely on your business. Either you pay $0 for the company as a whole, and $75 per card, or you would pay $50 per company and $25 per card. With that annual fee, you are getting 3x back on Alaska Airline Flights, and 1x for every other purchase.
As far as additional perks, the card also comes with a companion fare (in coach) for $121, and free checked bag for up to 6 different people on the same itinerary.
Both the personal and business Alaska cards are great values, especially when you consider the value of the points and the ability to transfer those points out to get some incredible value. However, in regards to the business credit card, the all time high sign up bonus is definitely worth considering, as it returns over $750 for spending $2,000 within 3 months. Bank of America does not report its business cards to personal credit reports, so applying for this card would not take up a 5/24 slot.
