The 866 number showed up on my caller ID. I figured it was a lonely telemarketer so I answered. Instead, it was an analyst from Bank of America. Unprepared and under-caffeinated, I found myself on the hot seat answering questions about why I applied for an Alaska Business credit card. Unlike when I have my Chase recon script handy, I had to wing the call. The toughest question is why I wanted the Alaska card. That was a good inquiry because Alaska is not as valuable post the Emirates devaluation or the latest deval which doesn’t allow for JAL Premium Economy Awards.
I actually applied for this card because Bachuwa Law, your friend in consumer protection, needs a separate account to keep the books straight. And I might as well get 30k points while I’m at it.
Besides that question, I was asked my revenue and profit and then I was approved.
