Alaska Airlines is offering new Mileage Plan members that “reside in a ZIP code that begins with 923, 932 or 934 – 961″ the following for travel through October 1:
- 25,000 bonus miles if you fly roundtrip on a Northern California non-stop to Hawaii, or
- 12,500 bonus miles if you fly roundtrip between Northern California and anywhere other than Hawaii that Alaska flies.
This is a smashingly good deal. Fares to Hawaii are very reasonable on Alaska, so this could work out quite nicely for anyone that has considered flying Alaska. It’s also worth keeping in mind that they match to MVP Gold from most mid to top tier status levels, and a status match comes with four Gold upgrade certificates, which can be confirmed at the time of booking assuming there’s upgrade space. A $300 ticket to Hawaii in first class for about 35,000 redeemable miles doesn’t sound like a bad way to spend a weekend, for those of you in Northern California.
