Alaska business card increased offer: 40K + $200 statement credit

13

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.

Quick Thoughts

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.

To determine your 5/24 status, see: 3 Easy Ways to Count Your 5/24 Status. The easiest option is to track all of your cards for free with Travel Freely.

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.

Has anyone actually ever gotten the $200 credit? I was approved for this but no credit. Asking before I call customer service.

I haven’t gotten it either… been calling them about it but having zero luck.

Any insights into whether the offer for the Alaska Business card will rise similar to the new increase on the personal card? I was planning to apply for the business card since I’m at 4/24 but the personal card offer is really tempting me!

Apply for the personal card, 65k miles and use my last 5/24 slot or apply for the business card or wait to see if the business card offer increases? Hmm..

DP: Denied, but approved after recon. Had to move over credit from an existing card.

the 65k personal offer is still available.

Great! This is a very helpful article. Thank you very much for this

BodA is super strict on issuing their BIZ cards. I’ve given up applying.

Brian

I applied for it in mid June and was rejected, should I apply again?

Matthew

B of A has become harder lately. Why did they reject?

Brian

don’t remember if they gave a reason. I thought it was COVID related and tightening of credit. I had a personal card with them at the time.

Matthew

I would put spend on your personal then and give it a shot. I’m never that worried about hard pulls. They’ve targeted me for the card occasionally so I really want to try too. Having a bank account might help as well.

I also was rejected a couple weeks ago, reasons were: (1) Limited deposit and investments in BoA (I’ve been a BoA customer for 13 years and it’s m primary bank, doesn’t seem like a good reason unless they mean no biz checking with them); (2) Have sufficient credit with BoA or affiliates already (I have two personal cards with them, no biz). FYI Their reconsideration dept is not taking calls at this time, so no recourse if denied which is frustrating!
