Alaska Airlines Credit Card Program Summary. Although you may apply for the Alaska Airlines Visa Signature® credit card, based on our review of your credit card application, including your income and credit history, you may be approved for a (1) Visa Signature® card or a (2) Platinum Plus® card (or you may not be approved for a card at all). Each credit card type described above has different Annual Fees, costs, benefits and bonus miles which are described in these terms and conditions.
Please read your credit card program rules and new account materials which will be mailed to you after your account is established. How You Earn Miles:
You earn miles when you use your card to make purchases, minus returns, credits and adjustments (“Net Purchases”). The following transactions are not considered Net Purchases and will not earn miles: Balance Transfers and Cash Advances (each as defined in your Credit Card Agreement), fees, interest charges, fraudulent transactions and certain other charges. 1 Mile:
Earn 1 mile (base mile) for every $1 of Net Purchases charged to the card each billing cycle. 2 Miles:
accounts earn 2 miles (consisting of 1 bonus mile and 1 base mile) for every $1 of eligible Alaska Airlines and Virgin America Net Purchases. 3 Miles:
Visa Signature accounts earn 3 miles (consisting of 2 bonus miles and 1 base mile) for every $1 of eligible Alaska Airlines and Virgin America Net Purchases. Eligible Alaska Airlines Net Purchases include Alaska Airlines tickets, in-flight food and beverage purchases and cargo purchases billed by Alaska Airlines as the merchant of record and booked directly through Alaska Airlines. Eligible Virgin America Net Purchases include Virgin America tickets including ancillary fees and Red in-flight purchases billed by Virgin America as the merchant of record and booked directly through Virgin America. Otherwise eligible Alaska Airlines and Virgin America Net Purchases made through a third-party merchant (e.g., travel agency, online merchant) will not earn 2 or 3 miles per dollar. Eligible Alaska Airlines Vacation Packages must be booked via the Alaska Airlines website or by calling the Alaska Airlines Vacation Packages toll free number listed on the website. All miles earned on the account will be credited to the primary cardholder's Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan™ account. Your card will be automatically enrolled in the Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan Dining Rewards program by Rewards Network and a Welcome Kit will be sent to you explaining your restaurant dining earning opportunities. Bonus Miles:
Earn up to 5 miles (consisting of 4 bonus miles and 1 base mile) per qualifying $1 spent on Net Purchases at select restaurants. For a complete list of participating restaurants, visit mileageplan.rewardsnetwork.com. Miles earned through the Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan Dining Rewards program will be posted to your Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan account. How You Use Your Miles:
Earned miles can be redeemed for Alaska Airlines or Virgin America award travel and upgrades. Visit alaskaair.com to learn more about miles and rules about redemption. Annual Companion Fare Benefit:
primary cardholders whose accounts are open and in good standing on their annual Account Anniversary date will receive a Companion Fare code within the first 2 billing cycles after the Anniversary date each year which will be credited to their Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan™ account. The code is good for a round-trip coach Companion Fare on Alaska Airlines or Virgin America from $121 (USD) ($99 base fare plus taxes and fees, from $22 depending on your Alaska Airlines or Virgin America flight itinerary) when traveling with another passenger on a paid published coach airfare on the same itinerary, booked at the same time on alaskaair.com. Platinum Plus®
cardholders do not qualify for this benefit. The Companion Fare code must be redeemed at alaskaair.com within 12 months of the date of issue. Once ticketed, travel may be completed after the expiration date of the Companion Fare code. The expiration date cannot be extended and, once your Companion Fare code has expired, it cannot be exchanged. If your Account is closed, changed from an Alaska Airlines Visa Signature Account to an account other than a Visa Signature Account or an Account with no annual fee, you are no longer eligible to receive this benefit. Mileage cannot be used as a form of payment, however mileage credit accrual is allowed for both passengers. The Companion Fare code is not valid with award travel, and cannot be combined with any other airfare discounts. Passenger is responsible for all applicable taxes, fees, surcharges and applicable checked baggage fees. Applicable taxes and fees are subject to change. Free Checked Bag Benefit:
Primary cardholders of the Alaska Airlines Visa Signature®
consumer credit card who have an open account at the time of travel and up to 6 passengers traveling on the same reservation may check 1 bag free of charge on qualifying reservations. Qualifying reservations include flights marketed by Alaska Airlines and operated by Alaska Airlines, Virgin America, Horizon Air, SkyWest or PenAir (codeshare flights operated by other carriers are not eligible). Primary cardholder must be an Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan™ member. Baggage restrictions apply. See alaskaair.com/freebagfaq for complete baggage rules. Payment with the Alaska Airlines Visa Signature®
credit card is not required to qualify for this benefit. Offer may not be applied retroactively, and no refunds will be issued. Not applicable for passengers who already receive 1 or more free checked bags. New holders of the Alaska Airlines Visa Signature card, and cardholders upgrading from another Alaska Airlines credit card, will be eligible for this benefit approximately 2-3 weeks after approval. Annual $50 Airfare Discount:
cardholders whose accounts are open and in good standing on their annual Account Anniversary date will receive a $50 Discount Code within 2 billing cycles after the Anniversary date each year. The $50 Discount Code entitles the primary cardholder to up to $50 off a published base fare on Alaska Airlines or Virgin America round-trip or one way travel at alaskaair.com. Visa Signature®
cardholders do not qualify for this benefit. The $50 Discount Code will be credited to the primary cardholder's Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan™ account approximately within the first 2 billing cycles after the Anniversary date each year. One discount allowed per reservation. The Discount Code must be redeemed at alaskaair.com within 12 months of the date of issue. The expiration date is indicated next to the code in your MyAccount profile. Not applicable to Award Reservations, vacation packages, tour or contract fares. Any Discount Code value remaining after purchase is forfeited. Mileage Plan credit applies and upgrades are allowed. Passenger is responsible for all applicable taxes, fees, surcharges and applicable checked baggage fees. Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan Enrollment:
If you are not a current Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan member, Alaska Airlines will enroll you into the Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan program when you become a cardholder.

You may be issued an Internal Revenue Service Form 1099 (or other appropriate form) that reflects the value of such reward. Please consult your tax advisor, as neither we, nor our affiliates, provide tax advice. Card Benefits.
Certain restrictions apply to each benefit. Platinum Plus®
card benefits differ from Visa Signature®
card benefits (i.e., coverage amounts vary and some benefits are not available). Details accompany new account materials.
If the total amount you request exceeds your Total Credit Line, we may send full or partial payment to your creditors in the order you provide them to us. Allow at least 2 weeks from account opening for processing. Continue paying each creditor until the transfer appears as a credit. Balance Transfers incur interest charges from the transaction date. If you revolve your balance to take advantage of a promotional or introductory offer, all transactions and balances, including purchases, will be charged interest. The Balance Transfer fee is 3% of the amount of the transaction (min. $10). If you have a dispute with a creditor and pay that balance by transferring it to your new account, you may lose certain dispute rights. Balance Transfers may not be used to pay off or pay down any account issued by Bank of America, N.A., FIA Card Services, or its affiliates.
