A few weeks ago, I reported that the Alaska Airlines credit card that offered a statement credit of $100 after meeting the minimum spend was no longer working.

This was widely considered the best Bank of America / Alaska Airlines offer currently available. It was gone, but per Maximizing Money, it is back!  The direct link to the offer is here. (Not an affiliate link)


The details of this Alaska Airlines credit card offer are:

  • 25,000 Alaska Airlines miles upon approval
  • $75 annual fee (not waived)
  • $100 statement credit after spending $1000 in the first 90 days of having the card

This Alaska Airlines credit card also offers a companion fare and 3x miles on Alaska Airlines purchases, but those are not super valuable to me.

Getting multiple Bank of America Alaska Airlines credit cards

One of the things with Bank of America is that they are one of the few banks that hasn’t put a hard clamp down on people doing credit card churns.  In fact, all BoA applications in one day are combined into 1 hard credit pull.  Also people have reported success getting many new Alaska Airlines credit cards every couple of months, even while still having the old one open.
I originally ignored Alaska Airlines miles, because I don’t live anywhere near where they fly, but then I realized the value that many of the Alaska Airlines MileagePlan partners have, including flying Emirates First Class and taking a shower in the sky!

Act now… likely a limited time offer

Originally, it was reported that this particular Alaska Airlines credit card offer was intended to be shown to people that were in the process of making airline reservations at Alaska, and it was taken down because other people were taking advantage of the offer (whistle…. :-D)

In fact, for awhile, you could still get the Alaska Airlines $100 statement credit offer by going through and making a fake reservation on the Alaska Airlines website, but now there is a direct public link.

In looking through the relevant thread on Flyertalk, there are already people talking about applying for anywhere from 2 to 3 to 5 cards at once in increasingly limited

As with most things, it’s the people that go over the top like this that tend to ruin things for the rest of us.  So if you’re interested in the Alaska Airlines credit card (and it’s a great one!), act now!
