Alaska Airlines Visa Signature Gets New Refreshed Benefits

Just last month in January 2023, Bank of America announced new and improved benefits for its co-branded travel credit card with Alaska Airlines. The Alaska Airlines Visa Signature® credit card is not only keeping its original travel benefits but has gained enhanced features ranging from earning rewards to Alaska Lounge discounts. Here’s what you need to know about the Alaska Airlines Visa Signature new card benefits.

For starters, the new card benefits apply to existing and new cardholders, which is great news for those who already have an Alaska Airlines Visa Signature credit card. The new card benefits include enhanced mile rewards and bonuses, boarding benefits, authorized user benefits, and lounge access benefits.

New Improved Card Benefits

Cardholders will now earn double miles with the new benefits for everyday purchases. That is 2X miles for every dollar spent on everyday essentials like gas, streaming services, transportation cable bills, and more. Cardholders can rack up the miles without any worry because they never expire and can be redeemed at any time. Cardmembers with a Bank of America checking, savings, or investment account also get a relationship bonus. They will earn a 10% rewards bonus on all miles earned for card purchases.

Cardholders will also benefit from using their Alaska Airlines Visa Signature credit card. In addition to earning reward miles, card members get priority boarding (early group boarding) when they use the card to purchase flights. Through this benefit, cardholders can enjoy an efficient boarding experience.

Part of the new enhanced benefits for the Alaska Airlines Visa Signature credit card is those of authorized users. The expanded privileges for authorized users include access to a free checked bag and priority boarding. Previously, these benefits were included for authorized users only if they traveled with the primary cardholder. This is no longer necessary to enjoy these perks. Last, but not least, the Alaska Visa Signature® card’s new benefits include an Alaska Lounge+ Membership discount. Cardholders get a $100 discount on an Alaska Lounge+ Membership every year.

New Benefits

  • 2X mile for every dollar spent
  • 10% Relationship rewards bonus
  • Priority boarding
  • Extended privileges for authorized users
  • Alaska Lounge+ Membership Discount

“With our newly enhanced Visa Signature® credit card, we strived to add benefits that mean the most to our cardholders – from adding value to their travel experience when using the card to earning more miles on things we buy all the time,” said Sangita Woerner, senior vice president of marketing and guest experience at Alaska Airlines. “All those earned miles with the card can be redeemed in our award-winning Mileage Plan program for flights on Alaska, our fellow oneworld member airlines and our additional global partners.” Source.
