In discussing whether or not we’d see a Double Elite Qualifying Miles promotion from the main US carriers, I neglected to consider my “hometown” airline, and it seems Alaska is offering double EQMs on selected routes through May 31st!
Not surprisingly, many of these routes overlap with Delta’s new frequencies from Seattle, though it’s interesting Alaska has chosen to respond with bonus Elite miles in addition to redeemable miles.
Registration is required prior to travel, though it’s worth noting this should stack with their other bonus mile promotion. To qualify flights must be marketed and operated by Alaska Airlines, and bonus miles should credit to your Mileage Plan account 4-6 weeks after travel is completed. Certainly a nice benefit for west coast Alaska flyers!
