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.

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.

No foreign transaction fee for personal card!

The personal card no longer has a foreign transaction fee. ('bout time...). The business card still has a 3% foreign transaction fee.

It's not clear to me whether the business card is "up to date", given that it still gives only 25k miles upon approval (even on the BofA site itself). It could be that they're planning to update it to match the personal card more closely, but that it will take longer.

Outcome please. I applied for the 25k May 25th and wondering if I will be matched to the new 30k with $100 statement.

Also, applied May 25th, 25k bonuses in account on May 26th

Some facts:

I closed my last Alaska personal card with 20k CL last week ( should have lowered the CL first before cancel, i know now). Then, I applied for the new personal card with 30k AS miles + $100 credit last night ( another mistake, i haven't follow this thread for a while) and got approved for 3k CL. Called this morning and the credit analyst was able to move 6K from another BoA Travel Award card to this and upgrade the new card to a Signature Visa card with a total combined of 9k. I asked and he said yes, I will receive the normal bonus miles of the signature card. Somehow, I don't have a good feeling about that.
Well, it is what it is. At the very least, I learned two important things so when I apply for my wife, hopefully we will have a better results

PS: Never happened to me, my previous Alaska cards are always some of the very high CL , 18K-25k

Unless their policies have recently changed, and I doubt they have, for that to happen they have to replace the card that was approved with a different card. Since that increases the AF from $50 to $75, by Federal Law the process to do that takes around 2 months. In which case they should have told you that. Plus the CSR can't do that on his own, he has to petition Customer Service to cancel the approved card and approve the new card. It doesn't seem they mentioned any of that to you, which has me worried. I'd HUCA and get a second opinion on what is being done.

I applied for the 25K +100 a week ago, and called in to ask for the 5,000 miles I missed out on. They said no, that miles are attached to an application date, and I applied before June 1st. She said I'd have to re-apply for this new card.

But I'd probably get declined.
