Alaska Airlines Visa 50k Miles Offer: Matched from 25k Application

Alaska Airlines Visa 50k Miles Offer: Matched from 25k Application:

So I applied for the Alaska Airlines Visa Card on December 6th with the 25k miles offer. I called in yesterday and got Bank of America to match the higher 50000 miles offer that came out last week.

I was booking an Alaska Airlines flight and while I was booking it, I applied for the card to get an additional $100 statement in addition to the 25k bonus points on December 6th. On December 11th, Bank of America announced a limited time offer for 50k miles seen below:

Here are the details for the Visa Signature Card:

Once I found out, I call into Bank of America in order to find out if they will match the higher offer. I called the number on the back of the card for card services at Bank of America. I went into the prompt to activate my card as I needed to activate my card anyway but the representative I was on the phone with didn’t have an idea of what to do and ended up transferring me over to Alaska Airlines Mileage Plus agent, which was no help as the offer comes from Bank of America.

I called back into the same number on the back of the card. I choose this time to speak to a representative directly. I told him that a day after I applied for the card, I received a higher points offer in my email. He then asked me to read the offer, which I did. He also asked for an application code, which was VAB3E8, as seen in the application link. Within a minute, he confirmed that he either changed the offer on my account or added a note about the new offer.

I believe this is a great offer and this is a great way to diversify your points collection. I would be saving it up for a redemption on Emirates but Alaska has many partner airlines.
