Keep vs. Cancel: Alaska Personal


Here’s a zzz post. The $75 annual fee on my Alaska Personal came due. I called in to cancel since trying to do so over chat is not an option. Right away the agent read the disclaimer and the account was closed.

So why did I cancel? First, I just received the Alaska Business card which comes with 40k points after 2k spend. Second, I never use the companion pass and consider it useless (see Alaska’s Free Companion Fare: Useless?), especially because I live in Puerto Rico. Third, the card is churnable, though it has become increasingly harder to get approved. And that’s that.


  1. Looking to do the same but curious if they will transfer my credit line to another BOA card I hold. Any data on that?

  2. Not so churnable. ‘This card will not be available to you if you currently have or have had the card in the preceding 24 month period.’
