CREDIT CARD COACH
MBNA Alaska Airlines World Elite® Mastercard®...
Among frequent travelers the MBNA Alaska Airlines World Elite is well known as a solid card with one of the best travel programs in North America: the Alaska’s Mileage Plan, which offers 30.000 Alaska miles when you spend $1000 or more on eligible purchases in the first 90 days after the card approval.
With Alaska Airlines you can fly almost anywhere in the U.S. (including Hawaii), Alberta, British Columbia, Costa Rica and México, but you can redeem and earn miles not only with Alaska Airlines but also with any of their 18 different partners (American Airlines, Emirates, British Airways, Latam, Qantas, etc.). Extra package? No problem at all, with this card you have one complimentary checked bag per passenger on the same qualifying reservation (max. 6 passengers).
For each $1 you spend on vacation packages, in-flight purchases, tickets and cargo services you earn 3 miles and 1 mile per dollar for all other eligible purchases. Another awesome benefit is that for only $121, you get every year one round-trip companion fare on Alaska and Virgin America flights.
The World Elite card has a $99 annual fee and 19,99% of interests. It is basically aimed for those who has a personal annual income of $80,000 or $150,000 in household income and are Canadian residents with the age of majority in their province. In case you don't meet those income requirements, you can apply for the Platinum Plus version and receive 20,000 Alaska miles. It is very easy to get approved for this card, so in case they deny your application in the first instance, give them a call and explain that you don’t want a new credit, that you just want to shift half of your existing limit to this new card, and they usually helps you to approve it.
And as if all this were not enough, with the MBNA Alaska Airlines World Elite® Mastercard® you obtain an incredible Extended Warranty, that means they double the actual warranties on most all new purchases made with this card for up to 1 additional year.
As almost all the Master cards, this one includes everyday services, like their emergency number with personal in disposition to help you in case of lost document, ticket replacement, lost luggage or pre-trip information. Plus, the Concierge service is excellent, they manage efficiently all your reservations in hotels, air and land travel, concerts, shows and restaurants!
