Reminder: Buy Alaska Miles with up to a 50% Bonus
It doesn’t always make sense to buy points and miles, but it can in certain situations. You should do it with a redemption in mind, and avoid speculatively buying. In my opinion, Alaska has the best points offered by any U.S. Airline, arguably the world. Back in May, I received a targeted email to buy points with a 50% bonus. Not everyone received this offer, but A LOT did, and many received a 40% bonus offer. Either way…if you’re looking at taking a trip and need the miles to shore up this could be a great time for you to buy Alaska miles.
A friendly reminder that you can buy Alaska miles until July 1st and get up to a 50% bonus.
It’s a tiered offer…
My Bonus…and price: 1.97 cents per point
The best redemptions, IMO, are on their fantastic partners for travel in premium cabins
What are some good options for Alaska Air redemption?
- 50k Alaska Miles flies you to Asia in Business Class. That’s less than $1000 one way in Cathay Pacific Business Class – a great deal. Don’t forget you can cook in a stopover for free!
- KLM from U.S. to Europe 62,500
- US to South America for 50k on AA business
- Go Big to Japan in First Class – 70k points.
