Alaska offering up to 10,000 bonus miles for travel on select routes through November 12, 2013

Alaska Airlines is offering Mileage Plan members a pretty lucrative bonus promotion for travel on select routes through November 12, 2013. They’re offering 5,000 bonus miles for flying two roundtrips in select markets, and 10,000 bonus miles for three roundtrips in select markets.

The eligible routes are as follows:

Registration is required prior to your first eligible flight, and you must fly nonstop on an Alaska operated and marketed flight.

This is an awesome promotion for anyone that frequents those markets. Alaska presently has $158 roundtrip fares between Seattle and Los Angeles, so I’m tempted to book a few trips over the next couple of months to take advantage of the promotion.

Comments

  1. @ Corey @ The Sterling Traveler — Yep, those would qualify, as long as you have nonstop travel between any of those city pairs.

  2. I don’t see the economics of the $158 SEA LAX fare for this promotion unless you really need the eqm. you would spend $474 to earn 10000+11448=21448 miles. You can regularly buy 10K AS miles for $190.

    The eqm price is ~7.9 cpm

  3. @ asar — Right, doesn’t make sense as a pure mileage run, though I’d take two trips to LA between now and November anyway, so for me it’s worth it to take one extra for the 5,000 bonus miles.

  4. Do they have to be booked as round trips?

    I have a RT to LAX booked as two one-ways, will that qualify, or should I rebook it if the fares are still available?

  5. @ Carl — The terms say the following:
    “10,000 Bonus Miles will be awarded for completing 6 (six) qualifying flights. 5,000 Bonus Miles will be awarded for completing 4 (four) qualifying flights.”

    So based on that I interpret it as meaning that one-ways would be fine, though I can’t guarantee it.

  6. The promo page reads as if 4 one-ways on qualifying routes earn 5000 and 6 one-ways earn 10,000 – so they don’t have to be round trips at all.

    Too bad SEA-EWR isn’t included.

  7. To answer my own question… a tweet from AlaskaAir said: take 4 or 6 qualifying flights to receive the miles; don’t have to be R/Ts.

    @Corey, I’d think since you’re still doing SEA-BOS n/s, it would count.
