To use the Alaska Airlines Credit Card companion ticket, log into your Alaska Airlines account, navigate to the “Discount and companion fare codes” section, and click the “Shop” button. When you make a reservation, your Alaska Airlines companion fare code will be automatically applied. You’ll see it reflected in your shopping cart and on the “Available Flights” page. That said, the fare won’t technically be redeemed until you click “Purchase” and review your reservation.
There are some rules for using your Alaska Airlines companion ticket. You must make the reservation on the Alaska Airlines website, and the companion ticket can only be used for Alaska Airlines flights. The reservation has to be for two people, booked in the same itinerary, and both people must be traveling together and ticketed simultaneously. Both the main flight and the companion flight must be purchased using your Alaska Airlines Credit Card, and you can’t use a companion ticket with a fare bought with miles – though you can earn miles on both tickets.
When you get the Alaska Airlines Credit Card and spend at least $2,000 in the first 90 days, you get a companion ticket as part of an introductory offer. Also called “Alaska’s Famous Companion Fare,” this deal allows you to buy a round-trip coach ticket on Alaska Airlines and receive a second round-trip ticket for $121 ($99 base fare plus at least $22 in taxes and fees). You also get a companion ticket every year on your account anniversary. The annual fee is $75.
