The best way to purchase Alaska Airlines tickets is with the Alaska Airlines Visa® Credit Card. It is one of my favorite airline credit cards. It’s a card I’ve had in my wallet and one I generally think is great.
I believe the Alaska Airlines Credit Card is such a valuable card to keep because of the annual companion ticket that it offers. The value of which more than justifies the annual fee, in my opinion.
The Alaska Airlines companion certificate is the single most valuable airline credit card companion ticket out there, in my opinion. Using the certificate you will pay $99 plus applicable taxes and fees (which start as low as $22.) Your companion can fly with you for as low as $121 to many destinations.
The great benefit of this certificate is that it’s valid on all Alaska Airlines fares; any economy fare. If you are an elite, you and your companion can get upgraded while flying on the certificate. It can be redeemed for one-way or round-trip flights. Plus it even earns Mileage Plan miles and is eligible for upgrades, etc. You can the companion certificate to anywhere Alaska flies; that includes Mexico, Costa Rica and the favorite of many—Hawaii!
If you enjoy skiing, here is your chance! Alaska Airlines is giving free ski tickets to passengers makes a great offer for the upcoming winter ski season. Travelers can score a free lift ticket or discounted offer at eight popular ski resorts in the US and Canada.
