Alaska Airlines is currently running a “Back to School” promotion, where you can earn 1,000 bonus miles. This latest promotion is similar to other current offers from United, Southwest, and American Airlines. Like a lot of other promotions, it is tiered with two spending thresholds that will earn you either 300 miles or 1,000 bonus miles.

Alaska Airlines Shopping Portal Back to School August 2017

Key Terms

The promotion is relatively straightforward with few terms and conditions; the key terms are as follows:

  • Offer is valid through August, 18, 2017 23:59 ET
  • Spend more than $125 on qualifying purchases to earn 300 bonus miles
  • Spend more than $350 on qualifying purchases to earn 1,000 bonus miles
  • Spending excludes shipping, Taxes, Gift cards, or any other cash equivalent purchases
  • Allow 8-10 weeks for the bonus miles to post to your account

Maximizing Your Earnings

To maximize your Alaska Mileage Plan earnings, use your Alaska Airlines Visa Signature® Credit Card or your Alaska Airlines Visa® Business Card, to earn even more miles for your purchases.

Overall

This is another excellent offer from Alaska, and while 1,000 miles are not earth-shattering, it is a great way to earn some miles and prevent the miles in your Alaska account from expiring. If you have a lot of purchases to make then you are best served by splitting your purchases across various shopping portals to maximize your mileage earnings. If you are not already an Alaska Mileage Plan member, there is a great bonus at the moment where you can pick up 5,000 miles for joining.

  • On my soapbox again. Anyone not using portals (smartly) is missing out on the easiest points there are for stuff you already are buying.

  • Bertrand Say says:

    This is bonus miles for buying online. If you do not use this, at least get the cash back rebate sites.

  • I was able to maximize this offer by going through the portal to Walmart and buying the 250 dollars with Chasepay to get the 10x UR points. I first just thought I’d be getting the normal one point per dollar from Alaska Airlines but them realized I’d hit the first spending tier on this bonus points offer as well!
    Now if I could think of anything else I need to hit maximum points for this offer, I might do that, but I don’t want to buy things I don’t need.

  • is this only for US-Residents? Or worldwide?

  • I know quite a few airlines have shopping portals, but I wish they all did as it is a fantastic way to keep miles active. If somebody set up a portal that earned points that could be converted to lots of different airlines and hotels they would have the potential to make a lot of money.

  • Always great when bonuses line up with purchases you need to make anyways!

  • I use the AS portal whenever I can. I think they have a separate promo going on too simultaneously. 1000 pts for using any shopping portal partner. Should stack.

  • lorem ipsum says:

    I’ve kept miles alive by buying a song from the iTunes store through the appropriate portal. It’s the cheapest way I know of to extend expiration.

  • Jacqueline parsons says:

    1000 Alaska points just for using their shopping portal-easy points!

  • Great deal, I saw an article elsewhere for using Groupon on that portal for $1.00 for something to bag the 1k worth of points.

  • It’s a pity that the promo is only for US residents.

  • Looks like I have some shopping to do! Just got this card and want to maximize my points for an upcoming trip. Thanks for letting me know about the points.

  • I believe it’s spend $350, not $300.

  • I got several emails about this. I am just discovering Alaska, even though I lived in Oregon most my life (my family didn’t travel anywhere, really no where). I am building miles now. However, where I live now American is a better choice. I did fly on Alaska once and I really liked it. I will be planning something with them. I hope when I travel with them next they haven’t changed all too much from merging with Virgin America. I’m discovering all the benefits from the posts here with Alaska.
