Alaska has several promotions for Mileage Plan members to earn bonus miles. Right now, members can earn 4X miles on Hertz rentals. There are other promotions to status match from competing airlines and double Elite Qualifying Miles for flights within California. Here's a roundup of the different Alaska promotions.
4X Alaska Miles on Hertz Rentals Promotion
Alaska Mileage Plan members can register to earn 4X miles on Hertz rentals through December 31, 2023. Members normally earn 50 miles per rental. Through this promotion, members can earn 200 miles per rental of up to four days. You can earn a maximum of 2,000 miles on a five-day rental. Bonus miles are awarded only on the base rate of the rental, meaning time and mileage charges.
Remember to register for this promotion before booking your rentals. It's valid on rentals at participating locations in the U.S., Puerto Rico, Canada, and Mexico. Daily, weekend, and weekly rentals in any vehicle class qualify. Use promo code 180143 when booking.

Alaska Airlines has an ongoing status match program. Mileage Plan members can match from nine other airlines to an Alaska elite status level up to MVP Gold 75K.

Buy Alaska Miles With a Bonus
From time to time, members can buy Alaska Miles with a bonus or a discount. Usually, the maximum bonus is either 50% or 60%, dropping the cost to as low as 1.72¢ per mile.
