Today Only: Earn 15 Alaska Miles Per Dollar Spent At Select Retailers

Online shopping portals can be a great way to pick up additional miles & points for purchases you’d make anyway. Just for following a specific link you can earn bonus points in addition to the ones you’d earn anyway for credit card spend.

Sometimes it gets even better than that, as shopping portals have promotions with even better bonuses than usual. Well, there’s one such promotion now.

Through 11:59PM ET today, Friday, January 20, 2017, you can earn 15 bonus Alaska miles per dollar spent at select retailers.


I value Alaska miles at ~1.8 cents each, so to me the 15 miles per dollar are the equivalent of a ~27% return on your spend, not including any points earned with a credit card.

Eligible retailers for this promotion include the following:

  • 1800flowers
  • JCPenney
  • Lord & Taylor
  • Neiman Marcus (Check Amex Offers to get $50 back when you spend $200 or more)
  • Nike
  • Old Navy
  • Rosetta Stone
  • Saks
  • Saks Off Fifth
  • Sephora
  • Spring
  • Under Armour


If you’ve been considering making a purchase with one of the above retailers, I’d certainly consider doing so today. Taking advantage of this offer is the same as a 25%+ return, as far as I’m concerned. When you click through the retailer you’ll just want to read over the terms to be sure your purchase is eligible. For example, with most retailers, the purchase of gift cards doesn’t qualify for the bonus.

Anyone plan on taking advantage of the excellent 15 mile per dollar bonus through Alaska’s shopping portal today?


  1. Lucky yesterday, the milk article was one of the most commented posts. You should try an experiment.

    Everyday have one, and just one, post that is on a topic completely random and not related to miles at all (you can even get your readers to send you posts written by them on any topic as long it passes your editorial discretion)

    I think most people would try to anticipate what the post will be about everyday and also get to comment on anything they wish in the comment section.

    Try it out.

  2. what does Amex card code in Mileageplus X app nowadays? I heard they do not qualify for airline credit anymore but do they still code as United Airlines purchase or merchant purchase?

  3. It gets even better. Buy from Old Navy and get 15 Alaska miles per dollar. Use Mileage X to pay and, if you have a United credit card, get 12.5 United miles per dollar. Plus get points from your credit card. Did it this afternoon.
