Pros and cons

Pros
  • Sign-up bonus

  • No foreign transaction fees

  • Miles don't expire on active accounts

  • Free checked bag

Cons
  • Has annual fee

  • Requires good/excellent credit

Featuring outsized benefits at a relatively low cost, the Alaska Airlines Visa Signature® credit card bests much of the airline credit card competition. It comes with an annual Companion Fare — that is, a ticket for your traveling partner priced at just $99 (plus taxes and fees) — which you'll get each year after your account anniversary. That perk alone, which no other co-branded airline card in the U.S. offers, could save you hundreds each year.

The card also comes with a robust sign-up bonus: Get 40,000 bonus miles and Alaska's Famous Companion Fare™ from $121 ($99 fare plus taxes and fees from $22) with this offer. To qualify, make purchases of $2,000 or more within the first 90 days of opening your account For a modest annual fee of $75, that's a great deal. 

The Alaska Airlines Visa Signature® credit card isn't the best pick for folks who don't often fly on this Seattle-based airline. But for folks traveling along the West Coast and for Alaska Airlines devotees, it's a go-to choice.
