BOA - Alaska Airlines Signature - Success!

I have been wanting this card for 2 years, with it's $99 companion ticket, free board room passes and 25,000 mileage points! 


I had no luck 2 previous times with them over the last 2 years - flat denial no call or anything, tried this last week - got the 30 day message, they called me and wanted to know why I fell behind on my mortgage with them in 2008, once I explained it.  Bam, approved with a $10,000 credit line :-)


I am so happy - I will never carry a balance, but the $99 companion ticket is what I was after :-)

Though this is an old thread, I was searching for info on this card, and thought I'd answer the question here. The details to not explicitly state round trip, but I think it would be safe to presume so.


Here's info from their website as of 11/16/2012:



†Details of Rate, Fee and Other Cost Information


"Cardholders that qualify for the Visa Signature card will receive an annual coach Companion Fare from $110 (USD) ($99 base fare plus taxes and fees, from $11 depending on your Alaska Airlines flight itinerary).  The Companion Fare e-certificate is issued upon approval of a new account and on each anniversary thereafter.  Mileage Plan miles cannot be used as a form of payment, however both the paying customer and the companion may accrue Mileage Plan miles.  Passenger and companion are responsible for applicable checked baggage fees.  Applicable taxes and fees are subject to change."


Starting Score (2016): EX: 748; EQ 737; TU 761

2014 Current Score: Discover FICO08 797 (7/16); AMEX FICO 776 (8/16); PenFed FICO 766 (5/16).

Goal Score: All 800+ Available Credit: $100K+
