Benefits

Platinum Plus cardholders receive Alaska’s Famous Companion Fare once they spend $1000 on the card within the first 90 days; the companion fare will be deposited to the associated mileage plan account. For every year thereafter, at the card anniversary date, the cardholder will receive another Famous Companion Fare voucher. This companion fare gives the cardholder the opportunity to book a round trip for two people, while only paying for the cardholder’s full fare plus $99 USD and taxes for the companion’s fare. This voucher can only be redeemed for an economy class seat on an Alaska Airlines flight.

Cardholders also are eligible to receive a minimum of 10% off in Canada, or a minimum of 5% off in the United States, when using their Alaska Platinum Plus card on qualifying car rentals at participating Budget and Avis locations. In order to take advantage of the discount on car rentals:
