Luke and Ryan, please check your email for an email from me regarding your Alaska Airlines account information. Thank you and happy holidays everyone!
Good morning everyone. I can’t believe it is only 4 more days to Christmas – luckily, I am in the giving mood. A few days ago, Alaska Airlines sent me an email telling me that I could transfer Alaska Airlines miles for free, due to my Alaska Airlines MVP Gold elite status. There really isn’t much need for this, since you can always book an award ticket for someone else with Alaska Airlines miles, but I did find a need. My dad hasn’t flown Alaska Airlines in awhile, so I got an email from Award Wallet telling me his Alaska Airlines miles were going to expire in a few months. Thanks to this promo, I transfered a few Alaska Airlines miles to his account to reset his expiration date. After that, I thought I could help a few other people who need 1,000 Alaska Airlines miles to top up for an award ticket. Keep reading to find out more…
Here are the complete terms and conditions of the offer. I can only transfer Alaska Airlines miles to 3 different accounts, and since I already transferred miles to my dad’s account, I have 2 more slots available.
If you’re a member of Alaska Mileage Plan™ with a status of MVP® or above, you can transfer up to a total of 40,000 Mileage Plan Miles by December 28, and we will waive the normal transfer costs ($10.00 per 1,000 miles, plus a fee of $25.00 per transfer). A minimum transfer of 1,000 miles is required. You can divide your gift among up to three Mileage Plan accounts. Other terms and conditions of the Mileage Plan and the Transfer Miles programs apply. Free Transfer transactions must be completed between 6:00 AM PST December 15, 2017 and 11:59 PM PST December 28, 2017. Only Mileage Plan™ members who receive this offer directly from Alaska Airlines via email are qualified to participate. This is an exclusive, non-transferable offer for the intended recipient only and may not be forwarded.
If you are interested, please leave a comment below before 11:59pm PT on 12/21 (today!) and tell me what type of award ticket you would book if you had an extra 1,000 Alaska Airlines miles. I will pick 2 winners Friday morning and email them directly. If you are chosen, please respond to my email and provide your full name and Alaska Airlines account number. I will then process the transfer and you should have the Alaska Airlines miles right away.
If you have any questions, please leave a comment below. Happy holidays everyone and please travel safely.
