First Impressions: Bank of America Alaska Airlines Visa Business Card

My second business credit card!

When I applied for my first business card, I only based it on my occasional reselling of items on Amazon or on Ebay.  Luckily, American Express was happy to stroke my ego, agreeing that I had a “business” and I snagged a Starwood Preferred Business Credit Card.

Now, I’m happy to say my side hustle is actually holding its own.

So much so, that I had to increase my spending power.  I not only requested (and was approved) for a credit line increase on my Starwood card, but I took out a new Alaska Airlines Visa Business Card from Bank of America!

First Impressions: Bank of America Amtrak Guest Rewards World MasterCard

So, the latest weapons in my arsenal are two new cards from Bank of America.  One personal, one business.  On the personal application, I opted for the Amtrak Guest Rewards World MasterCard.

I actually plan on keeping the Amtrak card long-term.  Some of the benefits we’ll discuss below will be great for my long term.

Depending on your local rail scene, this card may not provide much value for you.  Since I live and travel in the Northeast corridor, I’m looking forward to adding more train trips to my itineraries!  There’s something nostalgic about trains to me, and I just took my first trip by train last month!  It wasn’t long, but Amtrak offered an easy way to get from Baltimore Washington Airport into Washington DC’s Union Station.
