Alaska Airlines Buy Mileage Plan Buy Miles Up To 50% Mystery Bonus August 21 – October 5, 2017

1 Comment

Alaska Airlines has launched a Mileage Plan Mystery Sale for up to a 50% bonus (depends on the offer targeted to your account) on purchased miles that is valid between August 21 – October 5, 2017.

Alaska Air Mileage Plan Mystery Bonus

Alaska Airlines is not part of any global alliance but has ties with many airlines for earning and redeeming miles such as Cathay Pacific and Emirates.

You can access Alaska’s web page for buying and gifting miles here.

Note that Alaska Airlines doesn’t limit the number of miles that you can purchase over a calendar year like some other airlines do. They merely have a 60,000 mile limit before bonus per transaction (used to be 40K).

Here’s the bonus schedule on my account:

The price of Alaska Airlines miles purchased at the 40% bonus level is 1.97 cents each.

Conclusion

You have to bear in mind that Alaska may change their award charts overnight without any prior notification to its programs member just like they did with Emirates last year (read more here and here).

It still can, however, make sense to purchase them if you can find reasonable uses with partners such as Cathay Pacific. The 50% bonus that some members are eligible for is the highest that Alaska sells its miles at. Worth considering for those that could use the miles on partner airline premium awards.
