Alaska Airlines Visa Signature $11K, Very excited!!

I'm both surprised and excited by this approval, as BoA has turned me down for this card twice before, even though I am a current Cash Rewards card customer. I've had my Cash Rewards card for approximately 1 year and 2 months, and I pay in full each month on this card. I have had no new inquiries on EX for the past 5 months.

 

My plan was to wait until late 2017 to apply, as this is a card I really want. However, BoA recently approved a CLI to $9,900 on my Cash Rewards, so I gave Alaska Airlines a try.

 

Approved for $11,000 Alaska Airlines Visa Signature! I am so excited and surprised! Yay! woohoo

 

I also received the 30,000 mile bonus offer on the card. The PointsGuy values these 30,000 Alaska Airlines miles at $540, so a very nice card bonus.

 

Nice little BoA constrictor. Let's be friends now. Smiley Happy

Does anyone know the procedure to move the CL from Cash Rewards over to Alaska, and does it require a HP? I really don't need the Cash Rewards card. Thanks!

Thanks, Justagirl, I appreciate it!

 

I'll send you our trip itinerary! Alaska has many major airline partners (about 18 major airline partners!), and they travel to quite a few places. Smiley Happy

Re: Alaska Airlines Visa Signature Approval $11K, Very excited!!

The points earning rate on this card is also 3 miles per dollar, whereas other airline credit cards only offer 2 miles per dollar. Alaska Airlines also has 18 major airline partners, and they travel to many places, including Costa Rica.

 

You don't even need to pay for your airfare with your Alaska Airlines card to get up to 6 free checked bags per reservation.

 

The best benefit is the $99 annual companion fare that you receive each year you keep the card.

 

Really nice! Smiley Happy

Re: Alaska Airlines Visa Signature $11K, Very excited!!

Congratulations humu! Alaska is a wonderful airline and their mileage program is even better! I'm surprised the underwriting criteria are stricter for this card than with others.

This is a card I want one day as well, although BoA may be a tough bank to crack for me as I burned them for more than any other lender in my 2006 BK7. (I had 3 credit cards + an overdrawn checking account to the tune of over $15K total).

Current scores high 600s on EX/EQ/TU.

Amex Platinum NPSL - NFCU Platinum $17,900 - Chase Ritz $14,000 - PenFed Promise $5000 - Synchrony PayPal MC $5000 - Barclay AA $4000 - Merrick Bank $2400 - USAA Amex $2000 - Local CU Visa Classic $1600 - Cap 1 $1650 - Amex Delta Gold $1000 - Chase Freedom Unlimited $500 + several store cards.
