The Bank of America Alaska Airlines Visa is now offering a welcome bonus of 30,000 miles plus a $100 statement credit after spending $1,000 within the first 3 months (OFFER EXPIRED).
The Alaska Airlines Visa recently increased it's welcome bonus to 30,000 miles over the normal 25,000 miles. Now this increased offer just got better by offering an additional $100 statement credit.
The $75 annual fee is not waived the first year, so the $100 statement credit will at least cover the annual fee and leave you with $25 left over.
I've been able to get approved for both the personal and business version of this card on the same day on two occasions (read here and here). From my experience the bonus from these cards post almost immediately after meeting the spending requirement.

If you choose to apply for this offer please take screenshots, and since it is not my link, I can’t confirm the terms. I've never heard reports of people not earning the bonus through any of these links, but the bottom line is your mileage may vary.
Note: If you don’t qualify for the Signature Card, Bank of America may issue you the lower Platinum Plus or Preferred card, which offers a lower welcome bonus.
The 30,000 mile bonus plus a $100 statement credit offer on the Alaska Airlines Visa is an improvement over the card's long-standing 25k +$100 offer. Alaska Air miles are particularly valuable because they allow extremely generous stopover and open-jaw rules that also apply to one-way awards.
