I recently wrote an article about why you should pay attention to Alaska Airlines. I’m now debating if I want to apply for the card. I’d like to wait until August, but I’m not sure if the 40,000 miles bonus offer is going to disappear. The public offer is currently 25,000 miles, but you can use this link to apply for the 40,000 mile bonus offer. The offer does say “40,000 miles for Elite Mileage Plan members” but @ThePointsGuy has confirmed that you’ll still get the miles after completing the spending requirement. Alaska Airlines is partnered with Bank of America, so they’d be the ones issuing you the card and pulling your credit.
Members over on FlyerTalk report that this card is churnable, which means you can sign-up for the card, get the miles, close the account and then sign-up again later down the road and collect the miles all over again. So don’t forget, if you’re thinking about applying for the Alaska Airlines card, remember to use the link posted above to collect additional miles.
Lastly, don’t forget you can book Delta flights with your Alaska Airline miles. Just visit AlaskaAirlines.com and be sure to search for award seats.
