Alaska Airlines Visa Signature credit card once again has a 40,000 mile offer available, though they now require a not-unreasonable $7,500 in spend in 6 months. With this offer you’ll get 25,000 Mileage Plan miles after first purchase, then an additional 15,000 miles after you hit that spend minimum.
This card comes with a $110 coach companion ticket (yes, that used to be first class and coach, but now it’s just coach….get over it). Annual fee is $75, and it’s not waived, though this is still a good deal for $75.
One thing to note: people have churned Alaska Airlines cards over the years, but the T&Cs on this offer say: “This one-time promotion is limited to new customers opening an account in response to this offer…” Sounds like if you’ve had this card before, YMMV…
(Yes, I learned about this buried in a thread on Flyertalk…I apologize to everyone on FT personally if that bothers them).
