Alaska Business Card Bonus Boosted To 70,000 Miles + Companion Fare

25

Bank of America has increased the welcome offer on the Alaska Airlines Business card to 70,000 Mileage Plan miles + a Companion Fare when spending $4,000 in the first 90 days of card membership. That’s the highest bonus we’ve ever seen on this card.

Quick Thoughts

This is a tremendous offer on the Alaska Airlines Visa Business card, with the 70,000 bonus Mileage Plan miles you earn being the highest publicly available bonus we’ve ever seen on this card. Last year we saw the bonus go as high as 60,000 miles, so getting an extra 10,000 miles for the same spend – along with the Companion Fare – is an excellent earning opportunity, especially considering how valuable Mileage Plan miles are.

In addition to the 70,000 bonus miles and Companion Fare, the card offers free checked bags for you and up to six other people on the same reservation, 20% off in-flight purchases and no foreign transaction fees.

As you’ll see above, the card comes with a $75 annual fee, with the fee working slightly differently to most other credit cards. There’s a $50 fee for the company and then a $25 fee per card, hence the $75 total fee if you’re not adding any employee cards.

While Bank of America does have application rules for consumer cards including how often you can apply for them, those rules don’t apply for this Alaska Airlines business card and so you should be able to earn the bonus again even if you’ve had the card in the last couple of years.

Normally I would be all over this, but the availability to use these miles has greatly diminished. There is literally no availability from North America to Asia anymore on JAL or CX which is what I used these miles for.

Oh man, just applied a week ago. Any possibility to match offers with BoA?

Manny

Is it worth it to open this card just for the SUB? Won’t show up on the personal report + AS miles being valuable?

Sam

How long will this offer last?

Noc

Been wanting to apply for this. So glad I waited!!

Matt

Does anyone have experience with being approved for this card while holding the personal alaska card?

satellite

No issues there.

Matt

No go… Anyone have a good biz recon phone number for BoA? Lol

rick b

Just got it while already holding another Biz + Personal.

Ben

So more than one Biz card for the same business is ok?

Carl Pietrantonio

I got both early this year within days of each other. I am a BofA premium customer though.

I actually was able to reach a very nice lady at recon who helped me push this app through. She went through all my info and said the recon approval isn’t instant, she sends it to another team to approve but typically if she recommends approval they do it. She was able to request reallocating a small amount from a personal BoA card to use for this new biz card, and I see in my account today that the credit limit on the personal card lowered by the amount she requests, so it appears I’ll be approved. She said their system cited “lack of deposit accounts” as a reason for my denial so it does seem to help with approval with BoA if you have banking accounts with them (I think this is known, rings a bell). For anyone in the same boat, 888-782-7717 worked for me, and she said 888-569-4436 is a number for them too.

Carl Pietrantonio

Cool! Thanks very much for the detailed info!! Looking to give this a try in the next few days!

Carl Pietrantonio

WOOT! Got the new card and no need to call. Via the automation! Easy as pie!

With Amex raining down points (Biz Plat 160K offer pop-up while holding recently acquired Biz Plat, for P1 and P2) it is becoming very difficult to meet min spend for other best ever offers such as this one.

How churnable is this card? I got one in June last year. Can I close it and get another one? Have BofA preferred platinum personal account.

[…] 2022.8 Update: The new offer is 70k miles + companion fare. This is the best ever offer on this card. HT: FM. […]

Troy

Closed my last one a couple weeks ago, instant approval today.

victoria

Are you able to church this every year? Or how often?

Gotham

Does BOA match offers? Applied for this last week with the 40k offer

Greg z

Same! Got my card yesterday

Marc

Was approved a month ago. Called them and the SCR put in a request to match. Will see in a week or so if they do.
She mentioned first “You can apply for a new one if you like” before I could explain that I was looking for a match. So after the call I applied and was instantly approved for another

Hmmm.
