Review: Is the Alaska Airlines Credit Card worth the $75 fee?

Pros

Annual companion ticket. Receive an annual coach Companion Fare from $121 (USD) ($99 base fare plus taxes and fees, from $22 depending on your Alaska Airlines flight itinerary).

Lots of partners. You can use Alaska miles to fly on many airlines, including American, Delta, Cathay Pacific, Air France, and more.

Cons

Annual fee. The first year annual fee is not waived like it is with some other airline credit cards.
