Alaska Platinum Plus?
I just recently heard about Alaska airlines new credit card promotion, however I did not qualify for the credit card with the credit limit of $5000+
So that meant I did not get the visa version.
What are the benefits of the platinum plus and my steps now? I don’t travel as much and I wanted the companion care at least. How much is the annual fee for this card and what are the benefits? I know it’s not worth it anymore but I’d like to mitigate my losses.
Hope this helps! The Platinum Plus card is really not as great as the Visa Signature.
