Alaska Airlines 40,000 Mile Offer Is Back (Now Requires $7500 Minimum Spend)

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…

    Too stiff a minimum spend for me to bother with it, especially with the devalue of the companion cert.

  2. I wonder if with the new T&C and benefit this actually counts as a ‘new’ card. Meaning you can apply for it once, but can apply for it if you’ve had an ‘old’ alaska card in the past.

    I have 2 new Alaska cards just this year so not really in a position to test it.

  3. As the person who posted that deal on FT, I do not take offense that you reposted it here :grin:

    Especially not after reading up on your Iceland Air posts… thanks for all the leg work on that deal!! I’m totally hitting that next month.
