Alaska Airlines is offering Elevate members 10,000 bonus Mileage Plan miles for either linking accounts or accepting an offer to open Mileage Plan one by January 31, 2017. The offer is valid for Elevate members that had account by December 5.
You can access Alaska’s web page for this offer here.
Here’s the email that Alaska sent out:
Seems that they are having some issues. Trying to link my accounts resulted in system error:
The email T&Cs state that this offer would be only available for those that have not had Mileage Plan account before, but the second part of the message offers 10,000 miles for those that have had both accounts in good standing and is willing to link them.
Seems that Alaska and Virgin America were not able to match my Mileage Plan and Elevate accounts, although both use the same email address. Alaska was suggesting that I should accept the opening of new accounts but I would just rather link them to get the one time bonus.
