Virgin America Credit Card
Hi I have the top level Virgin America credit card with around a $100 annual fee. I know you love the Alaska card especially with the signup bonus but in the long term wouldn’t the Virgin America card be better because I can convert each of those miles to 1.3 Alaska miles indefinitely or was that a one off offer from Alaska?
For now, you’re right, the Virgin America card is better. But since it and the Alaska card are issued by different banks only time will tell if Alaska will stay with BoA (who issues the current card) or Comenity (who issues the VX card).
One good thing about the Alaska card is that BoA lets you churn it every 6 months or so. That means you can have two cards at a time and get the signup bonus several times.
