MBNA Alaska Airlines World Elite

The MBNA Alaska Airlines World Elite card earns Alaska Miles on all purchases and provides benefits for Alaska-branded flights. This card is available to all individuals in Canada.

Earning Rewards

The MBNA Alaska Airlines World Elite Mastercard earns Alaska Miles for all eligible purchases made on the card:

  • 3 Alaska Miles per dollar spent on eligible Alaska Airlines purchases.
  • 1 Alaska Mile per dollar spent on all other eligible purchases.

Redeeming Rewards

Alaska Miles can be redeemed for tickets for any Alaska Airline flight or with any of their 24 global airline partners through your mileage plan account. Notable airline partners in the Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan include Cathay Pacific, Japan Airlines, and Qatar Airways.

The best way to determine the total amount of miles required for your desired flight is to use the Alaska Award Chart tool.


MBNA Alaska World Elite cardholders receive Alaska’s Famous Companion Fare once they spend $1000 on the card within the first 90 days. For every year thereafter, at the card anniversary date, the cardholder will receive another Companion Certificate 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-operated flight.

If you have an Alaska Airlines credit card, you are eligible to receive one complimentary checked bag on Alaska Airlines flights. This benefit can be extended for up to six people that are on the same Alaska Airlines flight as the primary cardholder.
