Alaska Airlines and Bank of America announce enhanced benefits to our Visa Signature card
Alaska Airlines Credit Card Program Summary. How You Earn Miles: You earn miles when you use your card to make purchases, minus returns, credits and adjustments (“Net Purchases”). The following transactions are not considered purchases and will not earn miles: Balance Transfers and Cash Advances (each as defined in your Credit Card Agreement), fees, interest charges, fraudulent transactions and certain other charges. 1 Mile: Earn 1 mile (base mile) for every $1 of Net Purchases charged to the card each billing cycle. 2 Miles: Earn 2 miles (consisting of 1 bonus mile and 1 base mile) for every $1 of eligible Gas, Cable and Streaming Services and Local Transit (including Ride Share) Net Purchases. 3 Miles: Earn 3 miles (consisting of 2 bonus miles and 1 base mile) for every $1 of eligible Alaska Airlines Net Purchases. Eligible Alaska Airlines Net Purchases include Alaska Airlines tickets, Alaska Airlines flight subscriptions, inflight food and beverage purchases, lounge memberships, in-lounge food and beverage purchases, cargo purchases, and vacation packages billed by Alaska Airlines as the merchant of record and booked directly through Alaska Airlines. Eligible Alaska Airlines Vacation Packages must be booked via the Alaska Airlines website or by calling the Alaska Airlines Vacation Packages toll free number listed on the website. Otherwise eligible Alaska Airlines Net Purchases made through a third-party merchant (e.g., travel agency, online merchant) will not earn 3 miles per dollar. All miles earned on the account will be credited to the primary cardholder’s Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan™ account. Bonus Miles: Your card will be automatically enrolled in Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan™ Dining, a dining rewards program operated by Rewards Network Establishment Services Inc. You’ll earn 1 mile for every $2 spent at participating restaurants. Visit mileageplan.rewardsnetwork.com for the complete list of participating restaurants and learn how you can earn even more miles. Bonus Mile Processing: Merchants are assigned a merchant category code (MCC) based upon the merchant’s primary line of business. We do not determine which MCC a merchant chooses to classify itself. How You Use Your Miles: Earned miles can be redeemed for Alaska Airlines award travel, upgrades and hotel accommodations. Visit alaskaair.com for information on redemption and redemption minimums.
Relationship Bonus Miles: You will earn bonus Miles equal to 10% of the Miles you earn on each $1 spent in Net Purchases when you have an active Qualifying Account. An active Qualifying Account is an open consumer (non-business) checking or savings account with Bank of America N.A. or an investment account with Merrill that maintains an average daily balance greater than $0 or a Bank of America checking or savings account that has had a deposit or withdrawal within 90 days. Balances are reviewed at the end of every month to determine if qualifications were met. For cardholders with a Qualifying Account all Net Purchases made with your Card on or after the fifth business day of the current month through the fifth business day of the following month will earn the Relationship Bonus Miles. Upon new account opening of a Qualifying Account, it may take up to 30 days to begin earning the Relationship Bonus Miles.
Annual Companion Fare Benefit: Primary cardholders whose accounts are open with active charging privileges will qualify for a Companion Fare code each anniversary after you spend $6,000 or more on Net Purchases that post to your credit card billing statement by your credit card anniversary (every 12 months from the open date anniversary). With the exception of special account status or circumstances (e.g. Military relief programs), the anniversary will coincide with the month in which the annual fee is billed. After qualifying, you will receive the Companion Fare code within the first 2 billing cycles after your anniversary each year, which will be credited to your Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan™ account. The code is valid for a round-trip or one-way coach Companion Fare on Alaska Airlines from $122 (USD) ($99 base fare plus taxes and fees, from $23 depending on your Alaska Airlines flight itinerary) when traveling with another guest on a paid published coach airfare on the same itinerary, booked at the same time on alaskaair.com. Multiple stopovers not allowed. Primary fare and Companion Fare must be purchased with your Alaska Airlines credit card. You can view and redeem your Companion Fare code by logging into your Mileage Plan™ account at alaskaair.com within 12 months of the date of issue. Once ticketed, travel may be completed after the expiration date of the Companion Fare code. The expiration date cannot be extended and, once your Companion Fare code has expired, it cannot be exchanged. If your Account is closed, you are no longer eligible to receive this benefit. Mileage cannot be used as a form of payment, however mileage credit accrual is allowed for both guests. The Companion Fare code is not valid with award travel, and cannot be combined with any other airfare discounts. Guest is responsible for all applicable taxes, fees, surcharges and applicable checked baggage fees. Applicable taxes and fees are subject to change. You can view your Companion Fare terms and conditions by logging into your Mileage Plan™ account.
Free Checked Bag Benefit: All cardholders of the Alaska Airlines credit card who have an open account at the time of travel and up to 6 guests traveling on the same reservation may check 1 bag free of charge on qualifying reservations. Qualifying reservations include flights marketed by Alaska Airlines and operated by Alaska Airlines, Horizon Air, or SkyWest (codeshare flights operated by other carriers are not eligible). Primary cardholder must be an Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan™ member. Baggage restrictions apply. See alaskaair.com/freebagfaq for complete baggage rules. Payment with the Alaska Airlines credit card is required to qualify for this benefit. Offer may not be applied retroactively, and no refunds will be issued. Not applicable for guests who already receive 1 or more free checked bags. New cardholders will be eligible for this benefit approximately within 2-3 weeks after account opening.
