Alaska Mileage Plan Transfer Miles Promotion MVP Elite

Key Points

  • Transfer miles for free through December 28, 2017
  • Maximum number of miles that can be transferred is 40,000 (in total across all transactions)
  • Minimum number of miles that can be transferred is 1,000
  • There is a cap of 3 transfers during this offer
  • You must have MVP status with Alaska

Topping Up Your Alaska Balance

There are a couple of other options to get your hands on Alaska miles. While Alaska is not a transfer partner with any of the major credit cards, it is a partner with Marriott, so you can transfer points earned from your Marriott Bonvoy Business™ American Express® Card or your Marriott Bonvoy™ American Express® Card. And don’t forget that for every 60,000 Marriott points you transfer, Marriott will add another 15,000 points as a transfer bonus.

You could also earn miles with everyday spending on one of Alaska Airlines’ co-branded credit cards. The Alaska Airlines Visa Signature® Credit Card and the Alaska Airlines Visa® Business Card will let you earn miles on your personal and business expenses.

Our Take

This is a great perk if you are looking to transfer or pool some miles since normally you have to pay $10 per 1,000 miles you transfer, plus a $25 transfer fee.
