The points purchase season is upon us – Alaska 40% bonus is back, up to 40% that is! Alaska has targeted several Mileage Plan accounts with up to 40% bonus, including ones without any history of purchase. Transactions must be completed between 6:00 AM PST November 20, 2017 and 11:59 PM PST December 28, 2017 to be eligible for bonus miles.
Alaska 40% Bonus
Only members who receive this offer directly from Alaska Airlines via email are qualified to participate. As usual, it is a tiered offer and the 40% bonus kicks in when buying a minimum of 40K miles (56K with bonus) at $1,182 USD, or maximizing the value by buying 60K (84K with bonus) for $1773 USD. A value of 2.11 cpm.
- 10,000 – 19,000 miles = 20% bonus
- 20,000 – 39,000 miles = 35% bonus
- 40,000 – 60,000 miles = 40% bonus
$1773 USD is a lot of money and not everyone will be keen on shelling that amount to earn the 84K, however, its a good offer to top up accounts. Alaska miles are one of the most valuable airlines currency in the market and come with great airline partners and routing sweet spots – couple of examples;
- Cathay Pacific from North America to Asia, oneway for 30K/35K/50K/70K across all cabins
- KLM from North America to Middle East, oneway for 40K/70K across Econ and Business.
