This Alaska Miles Purchase promotion has ended, however, you can still purchase Alaska miles.
Alaska Airlines is currently offering one of its best bonuses on purchasing miles; you can now pick up a 50% bonus on miles’ purchases. This represents an excellent value since normally Alaska bonus offers are in the range of 30% to 40%. Although Alaska states that the offer is targeted, it does seem that you can access it from various links. If you have not received an email from Alaska, it is well worth logging into your mileage account to see if you can access the offer directly.
The offer is structured, and the size of your bonus will depend on the number of miles you buy.
- The offer is valid until July 1, 2017
- The bonus categories are either 20%, 35%, or 50%
The bonus categories break down as follows:
- Purchase 1,000 to 9,000 earn 0% bonus – price per mile: 3 cents
- Purchase 10,000 to 19,000 earn 20% bonus – price per mile: 2.5 cents
- Purchase 20,000 to 49,000 earn 35% bonus – price per mile: 2.2 cents
- Purchase 50,000 to 60,000 earn 50% bonus – price per mile: 2.0 cents
You will need to purchase a minimum of 50,000 miles to benefit from the 50% bonus. The purchase would yield you 75,000 miles for a price of $1,478.13. In terms of value, 75,000 miles is a great return and will take you far, if you consider how relatively inexpensive Alaska’s redemptions are. Check out some Oneworld redemptions that make sense using Alaska miles instead of AA miles.
If you are a regular flyer with Alaska, then you should consider this offer since it is one of the cheapest ways to top up your mileage account. If you don't fly Alaska but are looking to take advantage of one of its great partner redemption opportunities, this is the price to buy. It is rare that Alaska is this generous with their mileage purchases bonuses, so at a 50% bonus, this offer does represent excellent value.
