Alaska Airlines is running a promotion where you can earn 5,000 miles simply for joining their frequent flyer program, Mileage Plan. The promo runs until September 30, 2017, and once you have joined all you need to do is take one qualifying Alaska flight before the end of the year to get your 5,000-miles bonus. This offer is an extension of a similar promo which just ended on July 31, 2017.
Key Terms And Conditions
- The promotion is only open to new Mileage Plan members
- You must enroll in Mileage Plan by September 30, 2017
- You must take a qualifying flight between your enrollment date and December 31, 2017
- Miles from the flight must credit to the new Mileage Plan account
- You must fly on an Alaska Airlines or Virgin America aircraft; codeshare and other partner airlines do not count
- The offer cannot be combined with other offers
Other Ways to Earn Alaska Miles
As a Mileage Plan member, there are plenty of ways to earn Alaska miles apart from flying Alaska. You can earn when you fly with one of 18 partner airlines. Alternatively, you can also earn on car rentals with partners, and during hotel stays with Mileage Plan hotel partners. You can even earn for everyday spending by using your Alaska Airlines Visa Signature® Credit Card or the Alaska Airlines Visa® Business Card.
This is an excellent offer from Alaska; normally, airlines have a small mileage bonus for joining, but it is rarely more than a few hundred miles. 5,000 miles is very generous when you consider that mileage awards start at 5,000 miles—which means just by joining you are earning enough for a free one-way flight that is fewer than 700 miles within the Continental US.
