The Alaska Airlines Visa® credit card is making its limited-time bonus offer available to those who apply for it directly via NerdWallet.

Starting March 20, 2020, you can earn a $100 statement credit on top of the card's standard sign-up bonus offer of 40,000 bonus miles. To qualify, make purchases of $2,000 or more within the first 90 days of opening your account.

Previously, the $100 statement credit was available on the Alaska Airlines website but not via NerdWallet.

All of those incentives combined — a statement credit, a pile of miles and a companion fare — offer a ton of upfront value and easily offset the card's $95 annual fee. The companion fare, in particular, is a rare and useful perk that could save you hundreds of dollars. It's a benefit that also renews automatically each year on your account anniversary, with no minimum spending requirement.

In addition to those perks, the Alaska Airlines Visa® credit card also offers:

  • 3 miles per dollar spent directly on Alaska Airlines purchases.

  • 1 mile per dollar spent on all other purchases.

  • The first checked bag free on Alaska Airlines flights for you and up to six other passengers on the same reservation.

  • 20% back on in-flight Alaska Airlines purchases like food, beverages and Wi-Fi.

  • 50% off day passes for Alaska Airlines lounges.

🤓Nerdy Tip

Alaska Airlines is best for people who live on the West Coast, folks who travel among West Coast destinations or those who travel to the West from other parts of the country. It doesn't fly to certain states, and in many of the states it does serve, it offers service only to the western United States. Make sure Alaska Airlines meets your needs before applying for its co-branded credit card.
