This Alaska Miles Purchase promotion has ended, however, you can still purchase Alaska miles.

Alaska Airlines has announced a promo with up to a 50% bonus on purchased miles. As can be expected the promotion is tiered and the more miles you buy, the larger your bonus.

Key Terms

  • Offer is valid through October 31, 2017
  • You need to validate your Alaska account to make the purchase

The promotion is tiered, and if you're targeted for up to a 50% bonus you'll earn:

  • 20% bonus when you purchase between 10,000 and 19,000 miles
  • 35% bonus when you purchase between 20,000 and 39,000 miles
  • 50% bonus when you purchase between 40,000 and 60,000 miles

If you're targeted for up to 40% you'll earn:

  • 20% bonus when you purchase between 10,000 and 19,000 miles
  • 30% bonus when you purchase between 20,000 and 39,000 miles
  • 40% bonus when you purchase between 40,000 and 60,000 miles

Solid Value

There is some excellent value to be had with this promotion, with miles that can be kept alive indefinitely, and some excellent sweet spots for redemptions. In addition, although Alaska is not a member of any of the major alliances, it has an extensive array of partnerships from AA and Cathay Pacific to Emirates, so you have plenty of options to use your miles.

Overall

Even though Alaska devalued its program unexpectedly in April 2016, it still remains one of the best and most valuable loyalty programs out there; Alaska offered a 50% bonus in May 2016, and then in August 2016. This year they again introduced a 50% bonus in May, and now again in August. So, if you do need some Alaska miles now is probably the time to buy them, since you will probably have to wait until May 2018 to get another chance at a 50% bonus! Remember, there are no limits to how many miles you can buy, just a per transaction limit.
