If you are like me and have maxed out on Chase and American Express offers, you may want to consider the Bank of America Alaska Airlines Visa with 40,000 mile sign-up bonus.

Per their partner award chart, its only 25,000 miles for a domestic award on American/Delta/Alaskan, (or redeem internationally on British Airways, Air France and Cathay Pacific) so the annual fee of $75 pays for itself- at least for the first year.

In fact, the card comes with a valuable $99 companion ticket which can be used on first class fares as well- and you earn miles on the companion ticket. If used properly, this benefit can save hundreds a year.

While I am only interested in 50,000 mile+ sign up bonuses, this could be a decent deal for someone who has a bunch of Alaska miles or Starwood points that can be converted into Alaska miles.

Otherwise, I'd recommend sitting this one else and saving your credit inquiries for future deals.

Our points-obsessed staff uses a plethora of credit cards on a daily basis. If anyone on our team wouldn’t recommend it to a friend or a family member, we wouldn’t recommend it on The Points Guy either.
