The 25,000 Mile And $100 Statement Credit For Alaska Airlines Is Back

Written by Charlie

This is the offer that just won’t die! It keeps disappearing but people keep finding the new link location. The latest find comes from View From the Wing.

The Alaska Airlines credit card is one of my favorite cards, in spite of the fact that it is only half of the good airline offers. The reason it is one of my favorites is that it is quite easy to get (and get, and get, and get!) and that Alaska Airlines offers some of the best variety when it comes to redemption partners.

The 25,000 mile offer has been around for a long time and has seen the occasional increase to higher amounts. But, it is easy to get this card over and again so it is quite easy to generate enough Alaska miles for any travels you desire! A lot of people collect them as the easiest way to experience first class aboard emirates a380 while others enjoy the low mileage requirement to experience Africa with a stopover in Hong Kong aboard cathay pacific’s excellent first class cabin.

The 25,000 miles on both offers (the one with the statement credit and the one without) post after the account is opened, meaning you do not have to do any spending for the 25,000 miles. For the $100 statement credit, it is totally worth spending $1,000 to get it, especially since the annual fee of $75 is not waived for the first year.

I have applied for several Alaska Airline cards over the last year and did one of my additional applications with the previous $100 statement credit link to test if I would get the $100 even though I was already a customer. It did not work for me, so your mileage may vary. However, since you are not giving up anything by applying through the $100 statement credit link, you might as well use that one for your application and see what happens! It will definitely post if this is the first time you have had the card.

  • Hi Charlie,

    Out of topic, but I just want to share this interesting smart luggage than way better than the Blue Smart luggage that you posted a while back. This one has “fingerprint lock” and “theft alarm” feature that add into the safety of the luggage from being stolen and discourage the theft from stealing your luggage with the loud alarm goes off 🙂

    I am backing carry on and check in already and can’t wait to get it on Nov! Definitely the best so far compared to BlueSmart or Barracuda luggages!

  • Used the link to apply yesterday. Got the REVIEW, but when I checked status a few minutes ago it was approved. I had a nagging doubt since I just cancelled the same card about three months ago when AF came up.
