Video: The MBNA Alaska + My Predictions for Alaska Joining Oneworld

The MBNA Alaska Airlines MasterCard is known as one of the best cards for rack up the miles quickly in Canada. With up to 30,000 Alaska miles as a signup bonus and a generous $50 cash back offer from Great Canadian Rebates, the MBNA Alaska is a perennial favourite among Canadian points collectors.

However, MBNA is also one of the more picky credit card issuers in Canada, especially when it comes to the number of recent inquiries on your credit file. In this video, we’ll take a look at what’s known as MBNA’s “5/6 Rule” and the particular set of strategies for pushing through your MBNA credit card application even if it gets declined the first time around.

We’ll also address a hot topic in the loyalty landscape as we look ahead at the second half of 2020: Alaska Airlines joining Oneworld, and the changes to the Mileage Plan program that we’re likely to see as a result.

While nothing has been confirmed just yet, I’ll offer you four main predictions for what I think might happen to Mileage Plan as Alaska joins Oneworld. Let’s see if I get any of them right!
