After receiving numerous (unsolicited!) "You're Already Pre-Approved Aint that Grand?!!" credit card offers, I finally struck back. It cost me $45, but that bought me a first class upgrade on any Alaska Airlines published fare. Diners' Club offered 10000 miles on airlines of your choice after you had an account w/them for 3 months and after you paid $45 annual fee. I got their card (pre-approved of course), sent them a $45 check. When I verified that I had the 10k miles in my AlaskaAir account, I cancelled the Diners' Club.

Flying first class is well worth $45.
