Can I pay for utilities to earn miles?

Yes, you earn 1 mile for every $1 spent on all purchases, and that includes utility bills. This, of course, assumes that the billers in question accept credit card payments. Cash advances do not earn rewards and are prohibitively expensive. And paying a percentage surcharge to a third-party bill payment service wouldn’t be worth it just to earn points.

just wanted to add that I applied for this recently, wasn't approved online instantly but got a call from Visa and all it was was to confirm identity and that you actually applied for the card yourself. Was approved no problem and wasn't bumped to another card. You do have to have a moderate income and credit rating but for a card with those kind of awesome benefits, that's to be expected. I have yet to use the miles or anything like that but based on the companion fare ALONE, this card will be worth it!

Starla, do you mind me asking what your credit score at the time was? I was just denied card myself based on 'assessment of my application' and current economic trends' When I pulled my free Experian report I had all accounts (only 3) in good standing and and a credit score of 731.

More than likely was a security issue or an error on the application, I'd call them. I got approved at 620 after I called them. They just denied me for some derogatory marks from like 8 years ago.

BEWARE: If you apply for the Visa Signature card, Bank of America can open a credit line on ANY tier of the Alaska Airlines cards. You will only receive the advertised bonus miles if you are approved for a fairly high credit limit that earns you "visa signature status". And a high credit score alone is not adequate to get to that status. They do not have a system in place that extends you a counter-offer if you are not approved for signature. You will simply receive a lesser card in the mail and you are stuck with it. Even if they are able to approve you for a higher more

This is a great credit card! If you pay it off each month, the interest rate doesn't matter. The companion fare each year is a wonderful perk not to mention the mileage earnings and bonus incentives for signing up! This allows my husband and I to take an extra trip each year without breaking the bank.

I couldn't be more happy with this card. It has become my favorite. People complain about the high annual fee, but it is well worth, and inexpensive compared to American Express. The rewards are great, and multiply fast. My favorite part is the companion ticket I get every year. It makes our flights for our annual trip much more inexpensive and allows us to spend the money on other parts of our trips!

This mileage program stinks!!!!!!! I had almost 1million miles in 2002 and have only been able to use under 200,000. Every time I book, there are no seats. Back in 2010 I tried to book some flights to Turkey. No seats for my date. So I extended my search to a 6 week time span for my date to ANYWHERE in Europe only to be told there were no seats available at all. I can't begin to guess how many times I've tried to redeem my miles with no luck. Not to mention the many many hours trying to use my points. Latest attempt/refusal....that was today. The saga continues.

I've had the Alaska Airlines credit card for several years. Although the yearly fee is high, there are benefits to the card that outweigh that. I like the yearly companion ticket as well as the miles that build up for any purchase made using the card. I recently discovered the Alaska Airlines mileage shopping website, where if you purchase items through select vendors, you receive bonus miles. I'm happy to report there are several stores I frequently use on-line, including QVC! I'm looking forward to accruing more miles; great benefit!

I first got the Alaska Airlines Credit Card two years ago. My cousin was getting married in Hawaii, and I got the card to use the $99 companion ticket. What a deal! It is great that you get the companion ticket, as well as all the miles right away...there is no waiting to spend a certain amount before you get the benefits. Getting the companion ticket once every year is really the reason that I use the card, it is a great way to earn miles and get cheap airline flights. Also, Alaska Airlines is a great carrier to fly with! Great service and great flights. I have nothing but more

I received my Alaska Airlines Visa Signature card just after I moved back from Alaska. When I first received it I was given a bunch of miles to sign up, however it was attached to an agreement to pay a fee each year for use. The perks are nice and include things like opportunities for extra mile earning, a companion fair for $80, and opportunity to use the miles with other carriers. The negative aspects of the card include increases in yearly fee, potential expiration of miles, and increases in the amount of miles required for a airline flight. This card can certainly be beneficial if you have enough spending more

I’ve been using my Alaska Airlines credit card for about five years, and have always been satisfied. The mileage bonuses you receive are good, and if you use the card often enough, you can build up a useful amount of miles. I don’t usually get enough miles from the card to buy full mileage tickets, but it is useful for making up the difference when using miles received from purchasing other flights. It is a good card for people who commute often from Alaska to the west coast for school or work, as you can easily pay for a few flights, use your card often, and then have enough for more

I first started using the Alaska Airlines Credit Card when I lived in Alaska 5 years ago. I have appreciated the benefits tremendously. I was able to use my miles to fly my in-laws to Alaska to visit. I have no complaints about the service or card use. The fee is reasonable considering the mileage benefit received, and Bank of America as a service provider has been good to work with. Just be sure to contact them before you travel so that their fraud department doesn't halt your credit card transactions! Otherwise, keep on buying and enjoying the benefit of all those Alaska Air miles!

I have been using the Alaska Airlines Credit Card for 10 years now, and the benefits have been tremendous. The companion fare that I have received each year has allowed myself and my family to fly back to Seattle more frequently and for much less cost. I have also been able to build up a large amount of frequent flyer miles, which can be used for discounted or complimentary flights anywhere Alaska or Horizon Air flies. Not only have the mileage benefits been good, but the Alaska Airlines credit card has also allowed me to maintain a good level of credit.

This is my first credit card and so far, so good. I've been using it for major purchases and have saved up a few miles. I live in Washington so Alaska Airlines is a great choice for me to travel. They seem to be pretty fair regarding their late fees and grace periods all though I have not been late in a payment yet. The annual fee is not too bad and it's great how many miles they give you to start out with! I have no complaints so far, and I plan to build up credit using this card. My parents have had their Alaska Airlines credit card for more

Yesterday for my little credit card review, I went down to Mexico with the AeroMexico Credit Card. Today, we’re goin the opposite direction with the Alaska Airlines Credit Card. First of all there are two types of people who should consider the Alaska Airlines Credit Card. People who want to take a trip to Alaska or one of Alaska Airlines’ other destinations and could use an initial rewards bonus offering a couple free flights and those who fly Alaska Airlines on the reg, as Kenny Powers would say. I'm not saying this card is good for either group, but the point is that not everyone can benefit from the Alaska more
