If you are applying for a personal Alaska card, and are not an expert on applying for Alaska cards STOP, don't apply yet.
Instead, read this post. Doing that first may save you a huge amount of wasted time and frustration.


A few people in the Alaska Airlines forum have in the past received personally targeted, single-use links for a 50k offer
when they opt-in to "Partner Offers" in their Mileage Plan account preferences.

=======================================

BUSINESS CARDS

30k mile offer, $75 AF, $1k spend, no foreign transaction fees:
https://www.bankofamerica.com/smallb...-credit-card//

Note: There are two different earning formats for the business card, which you choose when you apply:
  • $50 per company, $25 per card (Business Level Earning Plan)
    • $0 per company, $75 per card (Individual Level Earning Plan)


To avoid billing confusion later, make sure you choose the Individual Level Earning Plan if you are not going to have employee cards under the same account as your account.

Also see the Applying for Business Credit Cards [Consolidated] thread (not-BofA-specific) for general tips on applying for business cards.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Reconsideration # (for personal cards):

1-800-354-0401 (8am-7pm ET Mon-Fri) direct, referring agent from another BofA line called it their "credit department"

1-866-811-4108 from the Alaska Airlines Visa thread post 949


Business card Recon Line:
866-695-6598 (8-7 EST M-F from what I was told)

Biz card status line: 888 663 6262
Biz Card credit analyst line: 877 665 5022, 877 665 5023 (seems to be non-working number)


Check application status online here:
https://www.bankofamerica.com/credit...status-form.go

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Credit Enquiries for Personal cards come from BofA. Enquiries for business cards come from FIA. Credit bureaus usually merge enquiries from the same requester made on the same day. Enquiries from BofA and FIA will not be merged.

When do the initial bonus miles post? You will get the miles after the statement closes for the cycle in which you meet your minimum spend. Usually AS points show up the Sunday evening after your statement closes, but sometimes it takes an additional week.

If there's a statement credit, when does it post?
It seems to be batch-processed. It will post automatically. Can be on the same statement or the next statement. It does not appear to be based on the statement close date.

One odd thing is that BoA called me yesterday to say "welcome" and went over the personal AS card benefits. I never had any bank called me for that reason. How unusual (to me at least)!
Applied on 9-17 received card on 9-28, just today 10-02 received welcoming letter including the companion fare information.. nothing on the $100 statement yet.

Would you guys call in or wait it out?
I just checked the online application status link (per wiki) and it shows that I'm approved. I'm glad I didn't call in.

I would wait a day or two, then call in. Also, any chance I could get that 30K offer code from you? I'm planning to apply next week

Does the 30K offer have a $100 credit statement or waves the AF?

I applied for personal card, got instant approval on 9/29, on 10/2 i applied for the business card that went to review (no instant approval). Now when i go to check the application status, it gives me status of already approved personal card but no info RE: business card application. Is there some other to get that info?
Thanks

Over 2 months ago, I applied for 2 personal + 1 business AS card. One pers + biz was instantly approved, and the 2nd pers was denied as "we don't want to extend any more new cards to you at this time." I even called right near the 30-day mark to get one last shot at reconsideration ... but no go. Now, last week (more than 2 months after I submitted my applications), I received an additional 25k miles in my AS account. I didn't pay much mind as I was traveling. Couple days after that a second personal Card was showing in my BoA profile, followed by receiving the card and the welcome letter by mail. Oddest thing. I can't figure out how and why they approved my second app from over 60 days ago. It's just bizarre, but a good bizarre for me.

I've read that AS is closing accounts with too many credit cards opened. Do you know what is the general data point on this matter? I am not seeing it in the wiki. Thanks!

tl;dr
If you never actually fly Alaska, do not use your miles to buy redemption for others on partner airlines.

Applied and was instantly approved for two personal cards on 5/19. Still haven't received the statement credit, and BoA says they have no record of that offer. Unfortunately I was a n00b at the time and did not take screenshots of the offer. Looks like I'm SoL.

When did you make the min. spend? How did you apply?

I made the spend in the first statement cycle, so it's been over 4 months since I completed it. I applied using the 2BM, and if I remember correctly, this was the public offer at the time.

After chatting with a rep online for about an hour yesterday, he referred me to a "specialist". We'll see what happens...

The $100 credit offer was never (in recent times) the "public" offer. It was only officially shown while booking an Alaska flight on the Alaska website. It was in this thread because it was copied from there. But if you didn't use that specific link, and just a "public" link, it probably didn't include the $100 credit offer.

...and there's no such thing as a "2BM" (unless you're referring to something that takes place back in the lavs...).

Actually, there is, even if the terminology is about as outdated as the term "dialing" a number is (when's the last time you saw, let alone used, a phone with an actual dial?).

2BM stood for 2-browser(type)-method, back in the day when that was required for applying for 2 cards on the same day (over at Citi). Today "2BM" is (mis)used by many to simply mean applying for 2 cards (perhaps 2 of the same card, perhaps 2 different cards) from the same bank at the same time. True "2BM" (using different browsers) has largely been replaced by the use of private/incognito windows; so perhaps it should renamed to "2PIWM" ?

In my case, it actually was two browsers, but yes, you are correct. I did apply for the actual $100 statement credit offer, because I checked it more than once before actually applying.

After speaking with the specialist, she "took my word for it" and gave me the credit on both accounts.
