The 60k Alaska Airlines Visa Signature

It’s been reported on several blogs, but you can earn 70k Alaska Miles after $3k in 3 months with and get a $99 companion fare. Read below, but I’m seriously considering signing up myself -since Alaska miles are very valuable and this is nearly the best ever ( We saw 75k in the pandemic ).  I just picked up the business version, so this would be a great way to bolster my balance even more. It used to be that Alaska never did more than 30k but over the past few years we’ve seen 65k and 70k pop up. This is non-affiliate too

60k Alaska Airlines miles after $3k spend

You can apply for the card in two ways…either by going to alaskavisanow.com and entering in your promo code ( this one expires October 4th, 2020 ) or by mailing in the physical application.

  • 60k Alaska Miles + companion fare ($121 ) after $3k spend in 3 months
  • Free checked bag for you + 6 companions
  • $95 annual fee
  • 50% off Alaska airlines lounge passes
  • 20% off in flight purchases

Can you match to this offer if you recently got the card with a lower offer?

It’s possible to match with Bank of America so I’d certainly give it a go – it’s not a 100% and often comes down to the rep you get. Times are a bit weird these days – if you have, or have had, success, do me a favor and throw your experience in the comments section

Historically 80k is a very, very good offer and hit in both 2022 and 2023. In 2021, we saw the offer hit an all time high of 100k. Who knows if that will ever come back.

Main Cast: 

Cards that earn flexible points and should be used on the bulk of your purchases.

Supporting Cast:

Cards that earn fixed points in the currency of the airline/hotel and can not be transferred at attractive rates. These cards yield benefits that make it worth keeping, but not necessarily worth putting a lot of your everyday spend on. 

The Chase Sapphire Preferred® is exceptional starter card and offers transferrable Ultimate Rewards, and pairs well with other Chase cards.

If you carry this card alongside Chase’s cashback cards like the Chase Freedom Flex®  and Chase Freedom Unlimited® or the business versions: Ink Business Cash® , Ink Business Unlimited® you can combine the points into Preferred account and transfer into hotel and airline partners

    Does anyone know when this Alaska 65K CC offer expires? I’d like to get it and make the spend on my property taxes in December, so I wanna wait until mid to late September to apply.

  • Allen Wing August 28, 2020

    Can I get this card bonus if I currently have this card? I have had this card for more than 48 months

    BofA does not match offers. Not sure what year your data is from.
