Alaska Airlines is having an award sale for bookings through February 19, 2018, where you can pick up a flight for as little as 5,000 plus any taxes/fees. While a sale sounds great, we're not 100% sure how much of an actual sale this is as Alaska's standard award chart starts at 5,000 miles — the same price that these sale prices start.
- Bookings must be made by 11:59 PT February 19, 2018
- Travel dates are March 6 through May 16, 2018
- Blackout dates are March 23 through April 15, 2018
- Promo is only valid on bookings made more than 21 days in advance of travel
- Taxes and fees are applicable
- Bookings through a call center or at the airport incur a $15 administration fee
An Opportunity for Savings
The sale is broad and covers a significant portion of Alaska's route network, but don't expect to see savings everywhere. Some examples where routes indicate they're on sale but according to their award chart are the normal best prices:
San Diego to Austin will set you back 7,500 miles and $6 in taxes and fees
A transcon flight from Portland to Newark set you back 12,500 miles plus $6 in taxes and fees
If you are planning on heading south of the border, then San Diego to Mexico City comes in at 12,500 miles plus $34 in taxes and fees
Alaska remains our favorite frequent flyer program and this sale, while not spectacular, is a nice bonus if you're intent on redeeming Alaska miles for flights on Alaska. Remember you can pick up a host of Alaska miles for everyday spending by using either the Alaska Airlines Visa Signature® Credit Card or the Alaska Airlines Visa® Business Card; Alaska Mileage Plan is also a transfer partner of Starwood Preferred Guest.
