While the signup bonus on the personal Bank of America Alaska card increased to 30,000 miles a few weeks ago (remember it is available with a $100 statement credit via this direct link), the business version of this card was still stuck with a signup bonus of 25,000 miles. However, I just noticed the signup bonus on the business version of the Alaska card has increased to 30,000 miles if you spend $1,000 in 3 months. The annual fee of $75 is NOT waived in this offer.
There are some additional perks with this offer, some of which are new to business card:
- Free checked bag for up to 7 people on the same reservation
- Annual companion ticket for $99 + taxes/fees
- No foreign transaction fees
This change must have occurred yesterday as I just posted about my recent app-o-rama in which I applied for this card with only a 25,000 mile bonus and when checking the current offer for that post, it was still just 25,000 miles as of yesterday. I imagine this will be the new standard offer going forward and this card, along with others at Bank of America, are pretty churnable. My strategy would be to apply for 1 personal and 1 business card at a time so the credit inquires are combined. This would result in an easy 60,000 Alaska miles for a net cost of $50 ($75 annual fee x 2 cards – $100 statement credit on personal card).
Could you do a short article on churning these cards?
Will try to do one soon
