The Alaska Airlines Business Visa Card (review) is offering a massive welcome bonus, which is the best publicly available offer we’ve seen on this card. This bonus was first introduced several weeks ago, and I wanted to post a reminder of it, as it’s anyone’s guess how long it will stick around.

Earn 70K Alaska miles plus a companion fare

The Alaska Business Visa Card is offering the following best-ever bonus after spending $4,000 within the first 90 days of account opening (note that there’s no end date published for this offer):

  • 70,000 Alaska Mileage Plan miles
  • An Alaska companion fare from $121 ($99 fare plus taxes and fees from $22)

This is an amazing bonus. As a point of comparison, the card previously offered 40,000 bonus miles, so the mileage component of this bonus is 75% bigger than before. Personally I value Alaska miles at 1.7 cents each, given all the great uses of Alaska Mileage Plan miles. That means the miles are worth $1,190 to me. That doesn’t even account for the value of the Alaska companion fare.

Alaska Business Visa card eligibility

Many may be curious about eligibility and restrictions associated with the Alaska Business Visa Card. A few things to note:

  • Among business cards, anecdotally I find Bank of America business cards to be quite easy to get approved for, assuming you have excellent credit
  • Anecdotally it seems that you’re eligible for the Alaska Business Visa (including the bonus) even if you’ve had it in the past; this is one of the best cards out there in that regard
  • Applying for a Bank of America business card typically won’t count toward the 5/24 limit with Chase, if that’s a consideration

Business cards don’t get much better than this in terms of approval odds and bonus eligibility.

Why the Alaska Business Visa Card is worth it

Beyond the excellent bonus, there are several reasons to get the Alaska Business Visa Card. The card has a $50 annual fee for the company, plus a $25 fee for the card, meaning one user having the card would just cost $75 annually.

The card offers lots of amazing perks, including a companion certificate on your account anniversary every year, a free checked bag on Alaska Airlines for you and up to six guests on the same reservation, 20% back on Alaska Airlines inflight purchases, 3x Mileage Plan miles on Alaska Airlines purchases, and more.

If you fly Alaska Airlines with any frequency, the companion fare alone should more than justify the annual fee.

The Alaska companion fare is really valuable

Looking for a personal credit card?

If you want an Alaska Airlines credit card but don’t want to apply for a business credit card, there’s good news. The Alaska Airlines Visa® Credit Card (review) is offering the following excellent bonus after spending just $2,000 within the first 90 days of account opening:

  • 50,000 Alaska Mileage Plan miles
  • An Alaska companion fare from $121 ($99 fare plus taxes and fees from $22)

This $75 annual fee card has largely overlapping perks, including a companion certificate on your account anniversary every year, a free checked bag on Alaska Airlines for you and up to six guests on the same reservation, 20% back on Alaska Airlines inflight purchases, 3x Mileage Plan miles on Alaska Airlines purchases, and more.

Alaska Airlines’ personal credit card is great as well

Bottom line

The Alaska Business Visa Card has a fantastic bonus of 70,000 miles plus a companion fare after completing minimum spending. This is the biggest bonus I ever recall seeing on the card, and on top of that the card is anecdotally pretty easy to be approved for. Even those who had the card in the past may still be eligible. If you don’t yet have the card, this would be an ideal time to apply.

The Alaska Airlines Visa Card is also offering an excellent bonus, for those looking for a personal credit card (either in addition to or in place of a business card).

Do you plan on picking up the Alaska Business Visa Card with 70K bonus miles and a companion ticket?

    Approved last month when the offer first dropped, and 70k SUB posted today along with the companion cert 1 day after close of the first billing period. Nice and easy!

  2. glen Guest

    Approved! Only $5K limit, but at least I'm in the door! I was convinced I was forever scorned by Bank of America. THANKS!

  3. David Guest

    Wow. I got denied for a 15 year old profitable (and very real) business. Not even a 'we need more time' message -- just 'we can't approve your application; we're sending you a letter' The business had the card before, but it was 5+ years ago.

  4. RENE ARENAS Guest

    Hi Ben, OMAAT readers. Has anyone been requested to submit tax returns, articles of organization, etc in order to be approved? I submitted my application a few days ago but was not immediately approved. Then I got a letter from BofA with all those requirements. I am a Sole Proprietor.

    1. Eddie Guest

      I received that notice as well. Submitted forms online buy I have heard nothing back for two weeks now. Real business, used EIN. No bank account with them.

    2. Ivan X Guest

      I too got that notice, and submitted forms online (not exactly straightforward, by the way, and I'm not 100% convinced I even did it correctly). I called their business applications number and spoke to someone who said that he could see that the documents were there but couldn't get any further information and that it would just need to work its way through their system, though I have my doubts. Real business, used EIN, still...

Real business, used EIN, still waiting to hear something. So far the experience has been about as opaque as can be.

  5. Kohinoor1 Guest

    Thanks Ben, I am approved instantly. Thanks for sharing the link!

    1. Ben Schlappig OMAAT

      @ Kohinoor1 -- Congrats!

  6. Ben Guest

    Can I have more than 1 of the business version?

    1. Ben Schlappig OMAAT

      @ Ben -- I've seen reports of people being able to have more than one, though can't guarantee it'll always work. If others have any data points, please report back.

    2. Colin Guest

      Yes! I got 2 of these less than 3 weeks apart.

    3. Colin Guest

      yes, i was approved for 2 [same card, same Sole Prop, same app details] with three weeks of each other.

    4. Mary Guest

      Yes. Was just approved for my second business card (same business). I will cancel my first card (already gathered the companion fare on it) once I receive the new card.

    5. CDKing Guest

      I just got my second AS B of A business card. My other one is under an EIN for a business I never got up and running. I applied using my SSN and sole proprietor for this one as Wholesale trade, that's the closest I can think of for my "buyer" business. Its only a $6k limit but hopefully I can still earn the SUB.

    6. CDKing Guest

      I should clarify my second AS business card. I forgot to mention I've been a BofA checking customer for around 20 years and have multiple personal and now 2 business cards with them.

  7. Jance Guest

    If approved, does that always mean you'll get the bonus (once required spend is met)? Wondering if this is like Citi or Amex where, you may get approved for the card but silently denied for the bonus. Anyone know how B of A rolls with that?

    1. Ben Schlappig OMAAT

      @ Jance -- That's a great question, hopefully someone else can chime in. The data points I've seen suggest that if you're approved and complete the spending requirement you'll get the bonus, though it's possible there are some situations where that's not the case.

  8. Josh Guest

    Does anyone know when this offer is set to expire/be pulled?

    1. Ben Schlappig OMAAT

      @ Josh -- Unfortunately we don't know, sorry.

  9. Mike Guest

    Approved! Thank you. But it showed up on my credit report albeit -9 points. I am a dba.

    1. Matt Guest

      The hard pull will always show up on your report and ding your score a little, even for business cards. The card account itself won't report to your personal file though.

  10. Andy Guest

    insta approved for 16K.

    I've done the Alaska biz probably a half a dozen times back in the days with just a sole proprietor. Their biz cards are definitely some of the easiest to get approved for.

  11. Colin Guest

    I was approved for this card on the 25th and received the card on the 30th. I have only had the chance to put 1 charge on it….what are the long/short odds of me calling in and getting a matched offer? I mean, Im going to call…I cant today…but Im concerned that since this doesnt seem to be a publicly listed offer that this dog wont hunt.

    1. Ben Schlappig OMAAT

      @ Colin -- There are some reports of Bank of America matching better offers. So it couldn't hurt to call in and ask, but I also wouldn't count on it.

  12. JC Guest

    can I get approved if i recently opened the personal version of this card? (like a month ago)

    1. Ben Schlappig OMAAT

      @ JC -- Yep, you're absolutely eligible for both the personal and business card.

  13. Raylan Guest

    Any ETA on the expiration of this offer?

    1. Bobo Bolinski Guest

      Would like to know this also. Any hints or informed speculation?

    2. Ben Schlappig OMAAT

      @ Raylan -- Unfortunately I have no insights there. Interestingly this isn't even being marketed as a limited time offer, best I can tell, but presumably the offer will change at some point. I would speculate that it will be around for some time, though.

  14. AM Guest

    Thanks for the tip! Applied and approved instantly. Have a regular AS card, used me being a landlord / having a rental property as my business for this one. AS miles aren't the easiest to earn so this is great.

    1. Ben Schlappig OMAAT

      @ AM -- Congrats!

  15. hk Guest

    I've been waiting for this offer. Thanks for the news. Just applied through your link and approved (partially because the official links at boa and as websites are still showing 40k offer).

    1. Ben Schlappig OMAAT

      @ hk -- Thanks for the support and congrats!

  16. Alonzo Diamond

    I can't recall if I've had the personal or business version of this card in the past. Any way to find out?

    1. Ben Schlappig OMAAT

      @ Alonzo -- Do you maybe still have a Bank of America log-in that shows one of the accounts? Or otherwise I'd recommend calling up Bank of America, and they should be able to look it up.

  17. Nick R Guest

    Hey Ben! Are there any restrictions to this offer if you have had this product in the past?

    1. article Guest

      Yes would also like to know this! Do you have to wait 24 months like the personal card?

    2. Ben Schlappig OMAAT

      @ Nick R -- The terms claim it's a one-time offer, though anecdotally that doesn't seem to consistently be enforced. I'm not sure what the cutoff is, though. Does anyone else have any insights or data points?

    3. TASSOJUNIOR Guest

      Im on my 2nd ithis year. Instant spprovals. Beware the "90 day" spend rule..very strict. Do early. You get a company account and an emplyee card that takes a month to show up on the company account. Often have to message Alaska to have them get the points for you. But churnable at least with instant approvals.
