Alaska Airlines today sent out an offer that other Points.com affiliated airlines have previously offered, but Mileage Plan has not.
You can multiply the miles you have earned in May, June, and July by 1X, 2X, or 3X at a 30% discount.
You can access Alaska’s page for buying miles here.
Here are the offers:
The price of a Mileage Plan mile at 30% off is 1.92 cents each that is higher than buying them during frequent sales.
I would take a pass on this offer, as you can always buy Alaska’s miles cheaper during their frequent sales, especially if you need a more significant number.
