Great for Alaska Customers

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.

Good perks, horrible customer service

I just got the card, instantly approved online and was given the card number, expiration date, and cvv.  Tried using the card online and it's not working.  Perhaps I need to wait for the system to update?  Then I tried calling customer service and this is where I started to lose faith in this card.  I was on hold for 45 minutes for first call, 1hr 20minutes for 2nd call, and 50 minutes for my 3rd call.  This is horrible.  Seriously debating cancelling this card since it's too much of a liability if I need support again in the future.  The 3 customer support folks I talked to was quite awful compared to Chase and Amex.  First one just wasn't trained to be helpful with the failed transaction query.  Second rep was trying to be helpful but after 30minutes of investigation came back with no solution or next steps.  The 3rd rep was just condescending and unhelpful.   I thought BoA was better than this but perhaps all the competent reps were taken by Chase and Amex.  I'll fly Delta and Hawaiian and use my Chase Reserve.


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 directly on Alaska Airlines and Virgin America purchases and 1 mile for every $1 spent on all other purchases. Miles are redeemable not only on Alaska Airlines, but also on airline partners including American Airlines, Virgin America 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.
