It’s been over a month since our article about one of Alaska Airlines’ most generous promotions – up to 50% bonus when you purchase their Mileage Plan miles, presuming you were targeted for that bonus level though it appears many people were this time round.

Well maybe you never checked your account, or maybe you forgot about it, but the good news is there are still 7 days to act if you want to lock in the bonus miles.

The offer

We outlined the details of the offer in our article here, however to recap if you are targeted for the full 50% bonus miles rate then provided you purchase at least 40,000 miles (60,000 with the bonus) it works out as a purchase rate of 1.97US cents (around 2.7 Singapore cents) per mile.


Just 50,000 Alaska miles is enough for two of you to enjoy a ‘return’ Business Class flight to Tokyo on JAL using the ‘stopover trick’, see here for details.

50 Bonus

Alternatively, just fly yourself from Singapore to Los Angeles or New York in Business Class on Cathay Pacific for the same rate.
