As an additional resource for these cards see the threads here: Current Alaska Airlines Card Offers. Previous 2012-2016 Alaska Airlines Card Offers.

If you are applying for a personal AS card, and are not an expert on applying for A/S cards STOP, don't apply yet. Instead read post #3688 in the other AS thread linked above. Believe me, doing that first may save you a huge amount of wasted time and frustration.

Link to enhanced AS card that waives $99 fee for Companion Fare (only pay taxes & fees): 30K miles and $99 CF fee waived

$100 stmt. credit link for 30K card & $22 CF pass:https://secure.bankofamerica.com/applynow/welcome.go Now active, as of 7/19/17

Business card offer of 30K miles

Can you book Cathay flights using AS miles? Probably NOT:

Did the "seperate expenses" reason work for these?

Looking to accumulate some Alaska miles soon.

Thanks.

You do have to remember that inquiries on your SSN for credit cards will decrease your FICO score. That's what keeps me from setting up multiple accounts.

Yes this is true. I am 803. So it seems to be ok if you know what you are doing and pay your bills.

What was the time frame between accounts? I opened one a few months ago.

I appreciate this card

True, the signup bonus is not spectacular, even at 30K.

However, points are awarded promptly on approval with no required spend. BofA does not offer much else of interest. It is helpful to have a B of A option in addition to the other banks.

A good use of the Alaska miles is to fly to and from---Alaska!

I applied online 7/26/2013 and was approved with the visa signature. I have not received my 30k miles yet.

Did you receive the Alaska Air miles the following day after approval?

I am wondering if I need to wait for my card, call to activate before the 30k is deposited in my account......

The miles were credited before the card arrived.

For my most recent application, I got miles 4 business days after approval which was before I received the card.

I activated my card today. I was told 30k was deposited on 7/29/2013. I checked my account and did not see it. When I was connected to Customer Care Service at Alaska Airlines, I was told every Saturday, the miles are deposited in the account.

Still did not see the 30k miles in account yet
