Good afternoon everyone, I hope you had a great weekend. Doctor of Credit covered the recently announced changes to the Bank of America Alaska Airlines Credit Card, but I haven’t seen an update to the Bank of America Alaska Airlines Business Credit Card yet. Luckily, I just got this letter in the mail that covers the upcoming changes to business credit card. “Effective March 2023, the Annual Fee on your company account will increase to $70 on your next company account anniversary date, and the annual fee per card will be $25, assessed on the anniversary of each card.” The “company account” used to be $50, so the combined annual fee will increase from $75 to $95 in a few months.
Effective immediately, card holders will get an earlier boarding position (probably boarding group C, since elite members are boarding groups A + B). You can also get a $100 discount off the $650 Alaska Lounge+ Membership if you pay with this credit card. Lastly, you and any authorized users who pay for Alaska flights with this credit card will get priority boarding and first checked bag free.
Effective March 2023, this card will earn 2x at gas stations, local transit / rideshare, and shipping. The 3x for Alaska flights and 1x everywhere else will not change. Lastly, if you have an “eligible Bank of America small business account,” you will get a 10% reward bonus. See the backside of this letter for more details about all of these changes.
