I think the card is great! I just got approved for it and like the idea of a passenger fare every year as well as the bonus miles. Free checked baggage is great and 3 points for airline purchases is great! 75/year can be a drag, but it compensates with the benefits. I got approved with a 705 EQ and 724 TU. I applied using the "pre-approved" mailer and got a $5,000 CL.

Our Take

The Alaska Airlines Visa Signature® credit card is a good option for travelers who fly frequently on Alaska Airlines.

What to Like

Right off the bat, cardholders are rewarded with 30,000 bonus miles after you make $1,000 or more in purchases within the first 90 days. Cardholders can also pile up 3 miles for every $1 spent on Alaska Airlines tickets, vacation packages, cargo and in-flight purchases.. Miles are redeemable not only on Alaska Airlines, but also on airline partners including Delta, American Airlines and more.

Look Out For

The benefits above apply to Visa Signature® consumer accounts only and different benefits apply to Platinum Plus® accounts. If your credit doesn’t stack up to that level, you may still be approved for the Alaska Airlines Platinum Plus® credit card, but it has lesser benefits. There’s also a $75 annual fee associated with the Visa Signature® credit card.
