Bank of America is not responsible for fulfillment of this elite qualifying miles offer and posting of miles directly to your Alaska Mileage Plan account. Elite-qualifying miles will not appear on your credit card statement. Elite-qualifying miles count toward elite status qualification only for calendar year 2023, are non-redeemable and cannot be used toward award travel.
Not bad in theory. In practice, Alaska has recently destroyed their award charts, made zero-notice devaluations in direct contrast with what they had specifically promised, has worse award availability than other OW members, and charges much more than competitors for many awards in premium cabins. In short, they’ve abrogated the trust people put into them.
