The typical signup offer on the Bank of America Alaska Airlines Visa is 30,000 Alaska miles after meeting the minimum spending requirements (usually $1,000 in the first 90 days).

We’ve seen offers for $0 companion fares, a $100 statement credit (tantamount to a 10% discount on the minimum spending), and a few highly targeted offers.

This latest deal is for 40,000 Alaska miles and a $0 companion fare after spending $2,000 within the first 90 days of account opening. There are a few steps to get the offer to show – but it’s worth it for 10,000 extra Alaska miles.

Best public deal there’s been for the Alaska Visa – 40K miles and a $0 companion ticket

I was just instantly approved with a $17,000 credit line and I’m LOL/24. It’s clear by now I’ll never open another Chase card – so I went for it. Alaska miles are among the most valuable out there – and you can use the $0 companion ticket to anywhere Alaska flies, including Hawaii!

Here’s how to get the offer.

Alaska Visa 40K offer with a little massaging

1. Install the Referer Control Chrome extension

Fire up your Chrome browser and install this extension. It’s a 1-click install.

Get the Referer Control plug-in

2. Set the controls

Your screen should look like this:

You want these settings

Where it says “Enter site” copy and paste this URL:

https://secure.bankofamerica.com/applynow/initialize-workflow.go?requesttype=ICAO&campaignid=4030715&genericvariables=861~40kHP102018

Then click “Custom” and “URL.” Type in:

http://alaskaair.com

Because the application must have a referral from the Alaska website.

3. Pull up the app

Now, in a separate browser tab, paste in the application URL:

https://secure.bankofamerica.com/applynow/initialize-workflow.go?requesttype=ICAO&campaignid=4030715&genericvariables=861~40kHP102018

You should see the offer for 40,000 Alaska miles + $0 companion ticket.

It only takes a couple of minutes to install the extension and paste in a link.

4. Apply

If you already have a Bank of America account, you can sign into your online banking to pre-load for your information. Otherwise, apply as normal. Be sure to add your Alaska loyalty number so your miles go to the right place.

My results

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve opened a new Alaska Visa. Bank of America has new 2/3/4 application rules for this card.

No approvals after 2 cards per rolling 2 months, 3 cards per rolling 12 months, and 4 cards per rolling 24 months.

So make note of the date so you can track your applications.

Instant approval with a nice credit line

I was approved instantly with a decent $17,000 credit line.

Even cooler, Bank of America gave me the option to generate my card number instantly:

You can shop online right away

I haven’t known Bank of America to generate cards instantly before, so this was a nice surprise. It would be awesome if I could get the minimum spending done before the card shows up in the mail. 😂

Alaska miles are cool AF

I’ve used Alaska miles to fly Japan Airlines Business Class back from Tokyo. And on Icelandair to fly home from Iceland in Business Class.

Alaska has interesting and varied partners

Other great partners include Cathay Pacific, Korean Air, LAN, and Fiji Airways. You can use Alaska miles to get – quite literally – anywhere in the world. And they have the last mileage program worth caring about.

Of course, you can also use Alaska miles for their own flights, including to Hawaii. They fly Anchorage to Honolulu – a flight I’ve always wanted to take, just because.

Bottom line

Using the steps above, anyone should be able to load the 40,000 mile offer for the Alaska Visa. I’m in Texas and had no problem getting instantly approved.

They say this offer is “limited time.” I don’t know what that means, so if you’re interested, I’d recommend applying sooner rather than later.

There’s still a public offer to earn 30,000 Alaska miles + a $100 statement credit, FWIW. But I’d much rather have 10,000 extra miles.

Lots of peeps way over 5/24 report instant approval. Good luck!
