The Alaska Airlines Visa business card is currently featuring its best offer in recent memory (perhaps ever?) at 40K miles and a $200 statement credit after $2,000 in purchases in the first 3 months. It looks like this offer increased last month, but I’m catching up on changes we haven’t reported during my paternity leave and found this deal notable enough to post for anyone who missed it.
The Offer & Key Card Details
While in my opinion the recently-expired 65K offer on the personal card was more compelling, the fact that this is a business card means it will not add to your Chase 5/24 count. If you’re looking for bonuses you can accumulate while working on getting or staying under 5/24, this is a nice increase.
|Chase's 5/24 Rule: With most Chase credit cards, Chase will not approve your application if you have opened 5 or more cards with any bank in the past 24 months.

For several years, both of the Alaska cards offered just 25K miles after meeting spend. Then the offers increased to 30K for a long time, and now 40K seems to have become the “standard” offer. While I would have preferred the personal offer (and indeed we opened it in my household), this is a good offer for the business version of the card. There was previously a targeted offer for a $100 statement credit, but $200 on top of the 40K miles is the best I recall ever seeing.
Again, this increase isn’t brand new, but we hadn’t previously reported it and given its status as a high offer on this card, it seemed worth reporting even if not strictly news.
