We down south of the border have the perk of BofA allowing us to get just about all the Alaska Airlines cards we want again and again, personal and business, and earning 25,000+ miles per card and spend the points flying on Delta jets. Well Canadians, you can enjoy some of the same perks.

There are two cards to look at, one from MBNA and one from C1. The first you can use to fly Delta and booking with Alaska miles is much simpler on their site than on Delta.com. Take a look at the current offers for both cards.

Both are solid offers and give those who are Delta flyers some good options to earn some bonus points but clearly the MBNA offer has a MUCH (did I say much) lower fee but does not get you the same perks when flying Delta. – René
