Up to 50% Bonus on Alaska Airlines Miles (Expires October 4)

Good afternoon everyone.  Yesterday, I received an email from Alaska Airlines stating that they have a mystery buy miles promotion with up to a 50% bonus.  I was curious if I was targeted for the 50% bonus offer, and it looks like I was.  I know a lot of people chose Alaska Airlines when they purchased their Marriott Rewards Travel Packages, but if you still need more Alaska Airlines miles, now is the time to buy more.  A 50% bonus is very generation from Alaska Airlines, so check to see if you were targeted for the 50% bonus.  Always remember to check your math before purchasing miles and points and make sure you have a redemption in mind.

Here are the complete terms and conditions for the Alaska Airlines buy miles promo:

  • Transactions must be completed between 6:00 AM PST August 20, 2018 and 11:59 PM PST October 4, 2018 to be eligible for bonus miles.
  • 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.
  • Miles are purchased from Points.com Inc. for a cost of $27.50 per 1,000 miles, plus a 7.5% Federal Excise Tax*, and GST/HST for Canadian residents.
  • Miles are non-refundable and do not count toward MVP and MVP/Gold status.
  • Offer is subject to change and all terms and conditions of the Mileage Plan Program apply.
  • Points.com Inc. is collecting Federal Excise Tax on behalf of Alaska Airlines Inc.
  • Alaska Airlines Inc. has the obligation to collect Federal Excise Tax and remit the tax to the appropriate government agency.

    1.97 CPM is very good and the best that I’ve seen for Alaska miles. I value them at 1.5-1.8 CPM. Won’t be partaking in this sale because I have made Marriott Travel Package conversion and between me and the missus, we are sitting pretty on 470K Alaska miles.

    What are the best ways to redeem?

      Dang, that is a huge stash of Alaska Airlines miles. I know a lot of people love using the miles for Cathay Pacific business class to Asia. I’m sure there are plenty of other great uses for those miles too.

        Thank you for the tip, but can never find anything on CX as we travel as a family of 4. To SE Asia, I usually find JL in economy and some legs on Hainan in business that require us a prolonged stopover at awful PEK. Not very good availability for that many passengers. We are always open for suggestions though.

          I only have experience finding 1 award seat on Cathay Pacific, but maybe if you are more flexible or use an award booking service, they can find 4 seats together.

            Have used award booking services in the past to mixed results. Last month, when SQ availability became wide open for 12 hours, one demanded $500 compensation upfront to place 4 Biz seats on hold for me while I was consolidating required points for the redemption! I refused on a principal, seats went puff, and have not looked for another service since.

      You always ask great questions, Kalboz. And you’re a good mind reader too. Keep your eyes on TWG because I’ve got some answers for you coming next week!
