Yeah right not a good card for domestic flight  awards since Alaska airline seems to be operating in very few states NOT in Midwest here.
Most people don't use AS for domestic awards, think CX, EK F/J etc.

Besides for Southwest, usually companion passes are considered worthless...How does this compare to Southwest? Does SW allow even on point redemption?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

I know that is the best use but 30k is never enough for those flight. I wish they had good use for domestic awards but Alaska flight won't do it because they don't exist here in  IL. I do have enough in stock though from previous cards but Man, everytime we book expensive international awards, they freeze account and play games to try to cancel your reservation. I was able to stop them from emptying my account but they managed to cancel my flight and they questioned someone I know when he redeemed for CX flight.

Now that Alaska and Virgin America have merged, does this mean that the companion pass works for any paid VA or Alaska flight?

no they were shutting down accounts for closing the card to avoid the AF. If you got it waived you were usually OK
Just saw this now. It's untrue, IME.

When can I expect the bonus to post? Does the companion pass post at the same time? Statement credit?

applied for the personal and the biz. was instant decline on both,
 called recon for personal and reason was
1) length of credit history [5 years]
2) high balance  [prob my lease]
reg rep and supervisor tried to reconsider but no go then she sent it higher up with a recommendation to approve since i have the virgin Atlantic  card with the them.
what should i do with the biz should i wait or it's no diff?
