[Disclosure: This is not an affiliate link, but this is the best deal that I have seen for the Alaska Airlines Visa. I am not liable if you are denied or do not received the full bonus for this targeted offer. Apply at your own risk.]

Update: This offer appears to have expired.

The Alaska Airlines Visa currently has an increased (targeted) welcome bonus of 50,000 bonus miles. You will receive the first 25,000 Bonus Miles upon account approval and an additional 25,000 Bonus Miles after $1,000 in purchases within the first 90 days.

This is the best offer I can remember for the Alaska Airlines Visa, however the offer landing page says “through this exclusive invitation only offer” there are reports of people getting approved for the card without the targeted email.

Some of the fine print you should read:

“UP TO 50,000 Bonus Miles by earning 25,000 Bonus Miles upon approval and an additional 25,000 Bonus Miles after making at least $1,000 in purchases within the first 90 days of the account open date.”

“*Bonus Mile Offer: This one-time promotion is limited to new customers opening an account in response to this offer and is valid for a limited time by invitation only. This offer is not valid for customers that have applied for this product in the last 12 months.”

The email was supposed to be targeted to Washington state residents, but the landing page is viewable for everyone through the link. Of course if you do apply, it is at your own risk. Since this is not my affiliate link I cannot guarantee that you will receive the bonus–although I hope that you do!

I’m not liable if you are denied or do not receive the bonus offer because it may be targeted. This is a great offer and it is certainly worth a shot if you are feeling lucky.

The bottom line is that your mileage may vary.

Since Alaska Airlines award chart and partner awards are some of the best values across the board and you can get huge travel value from 50,000 miles. After the United devaluation earning other airline miles will be the crux to my strategy for booking awards on premier partner airlines. Alaska Airline’s business class partner award chart has the lowest award prices across all major airline for Northern South America, Southern South America, Europe, South Asia, Oceania, and Australia/New Zealand.

If I hadn’t just launched a round of credit card applications two weeks ago I would certainly throw this into my applications and hope for the best. Since the landing page is open to anyone I would find it hard for the bank to deny applicants the full bonus; either way make sure you take screenshots of the offer page when you apply. It is interesting that the offer was targeted to Washington state residents and hopefully this will be a new public offer in the future.


Two hot deals this week are the Alaska Airline Visa 50,000 bonus miles offer and the Lufthansa Premier Miles & More World MasterCard® 50,000 miles offer which ends this Sunday December 15th. Between these two cards you could rack up 100,000 airline miles and be well on your way to several award flights.

  1. Wow. I’ve had this credit card for a month now and I’m extremely disappointed by their service. I’ve never missed a card payment in my life, but somehow they have managed to fail to set up my auto-pay and have charged me fees for missed payments. Customer service is not helpful. They also have not posted my additional 25,000 miles. Beware of Bank of America!!!!

    • J G – wow that does sounds incredibly frustrating. I’ve never had a problem with BofA myself, but thanks for sharing your experience. Keep us posted on the other 25,000 miles!

    • Mike, I just added an update to the post. The offer was pulled then came back for a day, and now it seems that it has expired for good. Hopefully we will see this offer again because it was hugely popular.
