As part of the Alaska Airlines credit card’s multitude of rewards program comes a bigger perk of 40,000 miles sign up bonus for cardholders. The airline claims that this card is the best travel cards out there, suited for frequent flyers and those who hardly fly on a plane.
According to Bank of America, the new credit card lets cardholders enjoy the privilege after spending a minimum of $2,000 on the first 90 days of account opening. The value of these 40,000 miles is $720, which can be converted to free flights not only to Alaska Airlines but also with its partner airlines like Cathay Pacific, British Airways, Emirates and American Airlines.
The business credit card has $75 annual fee and lets cardholders get 3x miles for every Alaska ticket purchases.
