Best-Ever Offer: 70,000 Miles For Alaska Business Visa

I do not write about all credit cards that are available -- instead focusing on miles, points, and cash back (and currencies that can be converted into the same). Terms apply to the offers and benefits listed on this page.

The Alaska Business Visa Card has its best-ever initial bonus offer: 70,000 miles after $4,000 spend within the first 90 days of account opening .

The card naturally also comes with an Alaska Airlines companion ticket, one companion flies for $99+tax (minimum $121 all-in), and that’s a legit and easy to use companion ticket that’s available anytime a paid fare is still for sale for two or more passengers in economy on the flight.

I value Alaska miles at 1.6 cents apiece making the offer worth $1120. And in my experience Bank of America doesn’t report small business cards on personal credit reports, so getting this card won’t add to your 5/24 total and thus shouldn’t trade off with getting approved for Chase cards.

Generally I find this to be an easier card than many to get approved for (credit and other factors depending, natch). I’ve had this card in the past and even decided to go back to it and they’ve given me the bonus again for doing so.

At a cost of $75 annual fee for one person, it’s a good price for a great offer.

  1. Does anyone know whether a no-status cardholder using the companion fare with an AA Exec Plat companion is eligible for complimentary upgrades?

  2. Awesome. Just got my second AS business card. So there’s a data point. You can possess two simultaneously.
