The Alaska Airlines Visa Business Card is a carbon copy of the personal Alaska Airlines Card. It earns triple miles on purchases made with Alaska Airlines, offers an annual companion pass, and cardholders receive their first checked bag free. It's a great business card for anyone that flies Alaska Airlines a few times a year.

The standard sign up bonus for the Alaska Airlines Business Card is 30,000 bonus miles and a companion fare from $121 ($99 plus taxes and fees from $22) after you make $1,000 or more in net purchases within the first 90 days of your account opening.

Promotional sign up bonuses will typically offer 40,000 bonus miles while still offering the Companion Fare offer.


Annual Fee

The annual fee for the Alaska Airlines Visa Business Card is $50 per business and $25 per card which means you'll dish out a total of $75 as the primary cardholder. With the benefits that this card offers, $75 is a small price to pay and in my opinion is worth it if you fly Alaska.

Authorized User Fee

The Alaska Airlines Visa Business Card authorized user fee is $25 per card which isn't bad. I recommend adding employee cards if you're trying to build Alaska Airlines miles.

Foreign Transaction Fee

The foreign transaction fee for the Alaska Airlines Visa Business Card is 0% which allows you to earn Alaska Miles out of country without being penalized.
