Alaska Airlines Platinum Plus Visa credit card is issued by Bank of America. It’s not a card you can apply for, but many people have them. Bank of America would approve people for the Alaska Airlines Platinum Plus Visa card instead of the Alaska Airlines Visa Signature card when credit limit issued was less than the required $5,000. And the signup bonus on that card was bad too, only 5,000 miles. There’s not much info on the card, besides that it earns two miles per dollar spend with Alaska and one mile per dollar on all other purchases.
Now there’s some good news for those who get this obscure card instead of the Alaska Airlines Visa Signature card . An Alaska Airlines employee reports seeing the following information on the airlines’ internal website.
Effective for new applications from June 4th.
Platinum Plus Visa card rewards:
- Annual Alaska’s Famous Companion Fare
- Introductory Buy One, Get One Alaska’s Famous Companion Fare and 30,000 bonus miles after making at least $1,000 in purchases within the first 90 days of account opening. Cardholders get an additional 1,000 bonus miles when they apply through an employee channel and make the qualifying purchases
- A free checked bag for cardholder and six other guests on the same non-group reservation
- Three miles every $1 spent on eligible Alaska Airlines purchases
Guests will pay the same low annual fee of $75 for the Platinum Plus Visa card.
If any existing Platinum Plus Visa cardholders wish to get these new benefits or to upgrade to the Visa Signature card, they need to reapply. Otherwise, there will be no change to existing Platinum Plus Visa cardholders’ rewards.
