Final week for up to 40% bonus miles when buying from Alaska Airlines

September 23, 2012

Time is running out on the latest buy miles promotion from Alaska Airlines. The current deal – up to a 40% bonus – expires next Friday, September 28, 2012.

The number of bonus miles accrued varies on a sliding scale, starting at 20% for small purchases and maxing out at 40% for purchases of 30-40,000 points. Here’s the breakdown:


Points are normally priced at $27.50 + 7.5% tax for every 1000 points, a smidgen over 2.9 cents each. With this promotion the rate can drop just under 2 cents per point which isn’t horrible but also not incredible either. Certainly easier than trying to find a 2cpm mileage run on Alaska though.
