Alaska Bags Fly Free With Visa

Introduction Image for: Alaska Bags Fly Free With Visa

Alaska Airlines Visa Cardholders Always Enjoy a Free Checked Bag!

January 2016

Loyalty has it perks! Alaska Visa Signature non-business cardholders enjoy their first checked bag free on any Alaska Airlines flight! And up to six passengers traveling with a cardholder on the same reservation will be rewarded with a free checked bag as well!

This offer applies to all flights marketed by Alaska Airlines and operated by Alaska Airlines, Horizon Air, SkyWest or PenAir. And payment with the Alaska Airlines Visa Signature credit card is not required to qualify for this benefit.

The Wrap-Up:

We wouldn’t normally suggest a credit card simply to receive a free checked bag - but we like the Alaska Airlines Signature card for all of the great perks including at least 25,000 Mileage Plan miles upon approval as well as the annual companion pass. So, if you have one, take advantage of this great benefit anytime you’re riding Alaska.

Summer trip? Pack some extra flip-flops and sunscreen. Thanksgiving family visit? Pack a frozen turkey! Christmas holiday? Lighten Santa’s load and pack some extra gifts. Oh and Santa really likes cookies so throw some of those in as well!

Be sure to pack your phone or laptop so you can leave us a nice note on Facebook and Twitter!
