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.
