Alaska Airlines Visa Card Promo: Earn 3X Miles on Entertainment Purchases

Looks like Bank of America (finally) jumped on the changing category spend bonus bandwagon. They introduced a promo for their Alaska Airlines Signature Visa cardholders, which nets you 3X the miles spent on qualifying entertainment purchases. So the next time you go check out that new flick at the movies, (this includes major chains such as Regal, and AMC), play a round of golf at the country club, or just fancy up yourself, with a manicure or pedicure, you get 3X the miles when you use your card for purchases  I will not be letting my wife know about this deal, as it could be dangerous to our bank account.  However, its nice to know that you can finally use your Alaska Airlines Visa card, and not just store it in the  drawer after getting the sign-up bonus.  If you have the card, check your email for the offer.

If you don’t have this card, you should try to get it, as Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan miles are some of the best out there.  Upon approval, you get 25,000 miles and a $110 companion ticket you can use.  They partner with Emirates, and you can redeem Alaska miles for flying their amazing first class!!  I also have a link for the card offer that will give you a statement credit of $100. That will offset the $75 annual-fee for the card. As of today, the link is still good and the offer stands, so if you want it, get it soon! You snooze, you lose!  Happy Travels.



FREE Museum Day for Bank of America customers

If you have a Bank of America account, you qualify for FREE admission into select museums across the country, including some in Oregon.  Just simply flash your Bank of America debit card when you go to the kiosk or entrance, and that’s it! You’re in!  Usually, if you come with someone, they will let them in also for free.  I took advantage of this last summer to catch an exhibit on classic cars at the Portland Art Museum.  For Oregon residents, the deal applies only at two museums:

This is a good deal to kill a doom & gloom Portland weekend.  Save on parking fees, and park next to the PSU tennis courts, and walk down to the museum in the Park Blocks.  You can park FREE up there for an hour.

This deal is good nationwide though, and you can check on the link below for details and other locations across the country. If you time this right, and if you are traveling in other city, this could be some free entertainment.  Enjoy.
