The Alaska Airlines Visa Signature® credit card has a new limited-time offer. New cardholders get to enjoy 50K Alaska Airlines bonus miles after making $2,000 or more in purchases within the first 90 days of opening the credit card account.
50K Alaska Airlines Bonus Miles
Get travel started with the new limited-time bonus mile offer from Alaska Airlines Visa Signature® credit card. The new introductory offer is a step-up from its previous sign-up bonus of 40,000 Alaska Airlines miles. The new intro offer, at 50,000 bonus miles, gives 25% more miles, with claims to be enough for a roundtrip. New cardholders will earn the bonus miles after making $2,000 in purchases within the first 90 days.
It’s worth mentioning that the new bonus miles offer is only available for new card applicants who have not had this same card in the last 24 months. With some basic calculations, if we value each mile at $0.01, the 50,000 bonus miles are equivalent to $500. However, keep in mind that these numbers are estimated mile calculations. The actual realized value of Alaska miles depends on how many miles are redeemed and could be greater or less than $0.01.
Travel With a Companion
One thing has not changed, and that is Alaska’s Famous Companion Fare™, included with the limited-time bonus mile offer. The Alaska Companion Fare is a re-occurring benefit that renews yearly on the credit card account anniversary. The Annual Companion Fare™, based on the 2019 average roundtrip domestic fares, is a $120 credit ($99 ticket price, plus taxes and fees from $22) for the cardholder’s travel companion.
Other Credit Card Features
The limited-time offer can be enticing for fellow travelers. However, the Alaska Airlines Visa Signature® credit card has more to offer. Cardholders get the first checked bag free for themselves and up to six guests on their reservation. If you assume the value of the checked bag at $30 per person each way, that is at least a $120 value for you and one companion.
Alaska Airlines Visa Signature® credit card also earns up to 3 miles for every $1 spent on Alaska Airlines purchases and 1 mile for every $1 spent on all other purchases. In addition, get 20% back on Alaska Airlines inflight purchases. There are no foreign transaction fees which is a convenient feature to have when traveling for some additional savings. The credit card also has a low annual fee of $75, which can easily be offset if you plan to travel at least once every year with a companion.
