How to Get the Offer

As mentioned above, is a targeted offer that’s showing on the Alaska Airlines’ website, but mostly for those on the West Coast. You might have a better chance in WA, OR, CA, and HI. But even if you’re not in those states, or in that side of the country, you could still get the offer to show up.

You can use a VPN on a west coast-based server. That works best if you already use a VPN. Otherwise there’s another way that should work (HT: DoC), using Refer Control and this direct link to the offer: https://secure.bankofamerica.com/applynow/initialize-workflow.go?requesttype=ICAO&campaignid=4030715&genericvariables=861~40kHP102018

That link only works if you’re going through Alaskaair.com. With Refer Control you enter the link above and then click ‘custom’ and enter ‘Alaskaair.com’.

Bank of America Application Rules

Bank of America has a 2/3/4 rule. You are limited to two cards in the last two months, three cards in the last 12 months, and four cards in the last 24 months.

It’s possible that they merge multiple applications in the same day into just one hard pull.

Guru’s Wrap-Up

This is the best offer we have seen on this card. Alaska miles are pretty valuable, probably somewhere close to 1.7 cents a piece. Just the miles alone give you a bonus of over $600 and then you get the the Companion Fare that makes it even better. Just keep in mind that the $75 Annual Fee is not waived.

  1. BOA is one of the more lenient issuers??!! Anyone with more than a handful of credit card approvals in the last 24 months, please report if you got approved for this card. BOA has really tightened up. There is some speculation that non-Alaska BOA cards might be held to a different standard. People should really think twice before applying for Alaska cards.
