Agreed! I'm excited to for once be in a position that my credit is almost to the point I can really go after what I want and I hope I can be patient enough to do it at the right time!

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

I just spent $2300 for 2 one way tickets plus 2 animal tickets on Swiss Airlines to Switzerland with my wife and my Cap1 Venture 1! eeeeeek we are moving to Switzerland permanently! We will have a little bit of fun trying to be out of the country but remaining our credit builds! She has a US green card and Swiss citizenship. I have US Citizenship and a Swiss residency permit! I don't think Swiss Airlines has their own CC but I haven't done any research so I'm probably wrong...but Swiss citizens don't use credit the same. A lot for me to learn and share! But Super Congrats on the Alaskan Airlines! My Wife lived in Alaska for awhile in her 20's a couple years back. I've never been Smiley Sad Can't wait to become a world traveler like my wife.

Thanks again, MugenCivic, I appreciate your kind words! Smiley Happy 

 

Switzerland is amazing and you will love living there. Enjoy it!  I would love to live there myself!

 

 

It does appear as if SwissAir has their own credit card. They are a great airline as well!

Actually, I've never been to Alaska either, but there are many other airports they fly out of and fly into and with their partner agreements, I can find an airport just about anywhere! There is a nonstop flight between Charleston and Seattle, for example, and that's just one possibility! Smiley Happy

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

Ahhh i don't want to hijack this thread but would you suggest my wife apply for the Swiss Airline Card as we will likely be traveling a bit? She just CLI'd to $4k on her Cap 1 Venture 1, App'd and approved for Cap1 QS $3k, and App'd and approved for $1k on Discover IT. All in that order in 2 days. I'm gonna say she should stop but what are her odds for approval on the Swiss Airlines MC as she's a Swiss Citizen?

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

No worries! I'm not familiar with the bank that issues the SwissAir Miles and More Credit card, but if you conduct a google search of the card, you may be able to find out more information about the type of credit profile they are looking for. It's certainly worth a try for your wife to apply!

 

It appears that they do require Swiss citizenship or address, so she certainly has an advantage in that respect.

 

Also consider what her needs and your needs will be in a travel card, and whether she plans to fly SwissAir exclusively. There is quite good information here on the forums about selecting a travel card, which may be airline specific or may be more of a general travel card depending on her needs, level of spend and amount of travel.

 

I hope this helps a bit and good luck! Enjoy Switzerland, it's an amazing country! Smiley Happy
