After you register by June 30, you can earn 2,000 elite qualifying miles for every $10,000 spent on qualifying purchases using your Alaska Airlines Visa card between May 1 and Nov. 30.
Any fees, including the annual fee, returns, adjustments, cash advances and balance transfers, will not count toward the $10,000 spending requirement.
You should allow eight to 12 weeks from qualifying for the elite qualifying miles to be posted to your Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan account.
