  1. Interested in changing my existing Alaska Airline Gold account over to Platinum Plus. First question, does this card still have the yearly companion reward, and Second, how is one to accomplish the change over?

  2. The Alaska Airline Gold account is NOT a Visa card, so you would not change over to the Platinum Plus Visa card, but have it in addition to your current Gold Mileage card: you would have two separate Alaska Airlines accounts – a Gold Mileage Account from Alaska Airlines and a Platinum Visa card administered by Bank of America. Call 1-800-654-5669 to find out how it works.

  3. I currently have a Hawaiian Airlines Visa card with B of A. Can my local B of A bank change this account to an Alaska Airline Visa card and retain current charge limits? I pay off my balances monthly.

  4. No because each credit account is a separate entity – like you cannot change one person to become another: they are individuals. B of A acts like a parent who runs a family of accounts, with each having their unique identity. Sorry, but you have to create a new Alaska Airline Visa Account from scratch with no support from your existing Hawaiian Airlines Visa card. Do NOT close your Hawaiian Airlines Visa card because having a spotless record with it helps your credit score.

  5. I applied for the Alaska Airlines Visa Signature Card and I was approved but received the Platinum Plus card, Why did this happen? Do I still get the 25,000 miles upon approval?

  6. Sad to say Signature (Sig) card has a higher barrier for acceptance than the the Platinum Plus (PP) card. The benefits differ also: APR of 14.24% (Sig) vs 14.74% (PP); Annual Fee $75 (Sig) vs $50 (PP); credit line $5,000+ (Sig) vs 2K to 5K (PP); bonus 25K miles (Sig) vs 5K miles (PP); rewards bonus offers are lower for the PP card than the Sig card. You receive 5,000 miles, not the 25,000 miles of the signature car. In the fine print Alaska Airlines notes: “Card type is determined by creditworthiness.” Ultimately the card you received was decided by Bank of America, who is the entity that actually gives you the short-term loan for the purchase.


  8. Bank of America determines which credit card you receive. You need to contact them to request an upgrade to the Visa Signature card.
