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. Outside of a brief period last year, we’ve only seen 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 $95 annual fee, with the fee working slightly differently to most other credit cards. There’s a $70 fee for the company and then a $25 fee per card, hence the $95 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.

OK, so I now am back to this: How likely is it to get my offer upgraded from the 40K bonus to the 70K one if I have had the card for only a month? I called B of A using the number on the back of the card and they said they need to transfer me to Alaska Airlines as they are in charge of this !!! ??? What?

Anyway, they transferred me only for me to hear they can call me vack in 4 hours as they are very busy. Surely this is not up to Alaska Airlines to change my terms of this offer?


Well, I called Alaska and they confirmed that it is they that would do it IF they allowed one to changed the terms of the card offer which they do not – ever. They even suggested trying for another new card (I didn’t say I already had).


So I would have thought. I will ask my banker if he can help. He is one of t he very few at B of A who can work in the Investment side as well as the Banking side. I do have a top tier status with them, whatever it’s called with a lot of accounts, IRAs and regular personal investments, so they should treat me better that an average cardholder. But it’s obvious they are different from Chase where I also have a great relationship – and a ton of cards, of course.


Concerned we may see some massive devaluation with their entry int One World, 70k is very generous which makes me think devaluation coming soon


If I have the personal Alaska card with BofA, will it make it more likely to get the business card?


I’m glad bloggers post new deals but to say this just got better is not true. For the past 4+ months the biz card has been 70k with $75 fee at $4k spending. It was not targetted but not on the BOA splash page either. Maybe AS was being ignored because of anticipated program changes. I was approved mid Feb.


lets be honest with annual fee. it is $95 that you will pay not $75
Annual Fee$70
per company, $25 per card


Yep, post needs to be updated to show $95 AF as well as free checked bag benefit only when you pay for the flight with the Alaska CC.


I’m currently hold a BoA Alaska Business card. Can I apply for another one and still earn the sign up bonus?


I’m in the same situation and would love to know myself. Had the business card for ~6 months now


Yes you can. I got my first Alaska Biz card Sep 2022, applied for my 2nd one last week using same biz info and was instantly approved. First card is still open.

I just booked two one-way business class to Bali from SFO and there seemed to be a lot of availability. Probably a better deal out there but sitting on a lot of Alaska miles and wanted to use them. Not my preferred miles.


Everything is 100K to S Asia. It used to be 50K, a stunning devaluation.

I have just got the card with the lower offer 3 weeks ago, not had first statement yet.
Do you think they will match me to this new offer? I would have to spend another $2K. That would be better than to have to waste another hard pull.


I just went ahead and applied for another one – approved. Let’s see what TransUnion does.c


I got this last year when they had the 70,000 bonus and it’s still open. Does anyone know if they’ll approve the same card a second time?


Yes they can. I got first Alaska biz Sep 2022, got approved for 2nd one last week. Both cards are currently open. Haven’t used the first one since hitting the SUB.


Does this card offer any benefit to in terms of earning Alaska Air elite status?


Hi guys, I’m very interested in this card, but I’ve heard BoA can be picky if you don’t have an established relationship with them. Should I apply anyway or should I make a checking/savings account with them? My biggest concern with that is BoA charges fees for having an account with them unless you meet monthly requirements.


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?


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


How long will this offer last?


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


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


No issues there.


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

rick b

Just got it while already holding another Biz + Personal.


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

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.

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. […]


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


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


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

Greg z

Same! Got my card yesterday


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
