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.

I have $25k+ in assets at BOA/Merrill and she does not.

EDIT: It's $20k, not $25k like I originally thought.

I knew something was up when bofa took away the chat feature on my online banking.

where is the discussion of this preferred rewards? and how does this help AK cc apps? if it does at all.
thanks!

CSR at banks, airlines, etc, often make things up. That's why there's this famous acronym on FT: HUCA - Hang Up, Call Again (because the next CSR might tell you something completely different).

I've been reading this thread for a long time, and I've heard of such an offer before.

Did you have some spending on the existing cards? I put some spend on both existing personal cards the 2 months leading up to card #3's approval.

3rd AS card in what relationship to previous cards?

There's a huge difference between 3rd AS card applied on the same day as the 1st and 2nd, vs 3rd AS card after opening the 1st 6+ months before and the 2nd 3+ months before and not closing them yet, vs 3rd AS after having closed 1st and 2nd a year before.

Getting low credit lines

In the last 6 months, BoA is giving me very low credit lines - I have applied 2 times to get credit lines of $2000, not enough for the visa signature and the bonus. I have gotten $10k credit lines from BoA in the past. I am a churner with fico =750+, long credt history.

I have canceled all my BoA cards last year - even then they keep giving me the useless plus card - what can I do to get out of the rut?

Very odd.

Applied yesterday for the personal card, it said I was denied. However I went to check the status later in the day and it's now showing as pending.

...??

Did you ever lower the limits on those BOA cards before canceling? Some have reported BOA having a very long memory with CLs that don't go back into your available credit pool for quite some time.

I'm in the same rut for the prior two cards, $2k cards. However, my wife, very similar characteristics, no problem getting a $15k card each time. I can't figure out why.

It's an opt-in program, with different reward tiers based on the total size of your BAML relationship. Like when a Citi rep thanks you for being a "valued CitiGold member" thanks to a checking account you churned awhile back.

For example, if you can hit the Platinum tier, then you get free trades on the ML side + 2.6% cash back on the PR credit card.

I applied the card and was instantly approved. Then, I was just curious and checked the application status online. It said, "in review" Anyone had same experience?
