Re: bofa ??

The ak air website doesnt give an option for which card to apply for.. they issue card based on credit I assume... I was mostly wondering how much time I need to responsibly use this card before I should ask for the sig version

Re: bofa ??

Another thing I'd mention that I'm considering as a

long time AK visa card holder is getting a SPG card.

It seems like it would be advantageous to move all the

spending I put on the AK visa except for actual ticket

purchases onto a SPG card. It seems like you can get

a few more AK miles with the SPG for your daily spend

but you aren't locked into AlaskaAir with those miles.

 

I don't know if that directly helps you now, because a

SPG amex is probably a bit harder to qualify for, but if

you end up waiting anyway it might be something to

consider in the future.

Re: bofa ??

As far as what I would use my miles for.. ak air is pretty much it... life long resident with no forseeable move in my future.. the only small reason I would consider another card is my sister lives in germany.. so the no ftf and having a freedom / sapphire combo has my attention.. as it is for now though my travel is between anchorage and fairbanks a cple times a year.. once a year to hawaii with my lady for a getaway without the kids

Re: bofa ??

Also im curious how bofa looks at spending... ive ran almost 4 grand on my card in a month... realistically thats a little more than normal monthly spending for my household. So needless to say ive weekly payments to avoid an over limit... and untill ive got a higher limit ill have to continue making multiple monthly payments...

If you spend that much for a few months I would guess that you'll get an offer to

upgrade to the signature card within a few months. AlaskaAir likes to push the

signature and I think the lower tier cards are considered as entry points for where

they want everyone to be eventually.

 

The reason I mentioned the amex SPG card above is that SPG points are transferable

into the AlaskaAir miles program and you get 1.25 miles per $ of spend. You don't have to

use the Starwood points that way but the option is available. The SPG is the only card I know

of that directly transfers into Alaska's miles. If it wasn't for the 3x miles for $ spent on airfare on 

the AK visa, I'd dump the AK visa outright and get a SPG. I spend about $5k a year on AK

airfare (slopeworker).
