Last Call on Alaska Mileage Plan’s most lucrative bonus promotion, up to 60% bonus miles. Not every account gets the 60% bonus, though the mystery bonus ranges from 40%-60%. If you were lucky enough to score a 60% bonus offer, you could buy Alaska miles for as little as 1.85 Cents Per Mile, with a minimum purchase of 40 000 miles completed by May 21, 2023.
Buy Alaska Miles – up to 60% Bonus
Each account has been targetted with offers between 40%-60% bonus, and the tiers look like this;
- Buy or gift 3,000-19,000 miles, and get 40% bonus miles.
- Buy or gift 20,000-39,000 miles, and get 50% bonus miles.
- Buy or gift 40,000-100,000 miles, and get 60% bonus miles.
I would buy with a 60% bonus, as this promotion can be maxed by purchasing 100K (160K with bonus) miles for ~ USD 2956.25 at 1.85 CPM – a good value!! Even if you start at zero balance, with this promotion, you can fly from North America to Asia in business class (60K miles, on Cathay, for example) for $1100 or in First Class (70K miles) for $1295!
USD 2956 is a lot of money; not everyone will be keen on shelling that amount for 160K miles. However, it’s the best offer from Alaska yet, and worth considering. Alaska miles continue to be one of the most valuable airlines currency in the market and comes with great airline partners and routing sweet spots (including a stopover on one-way awards) – here are a couple of examples;
- Cathay Pacific from North America to Asia, o/w for 30K/35K/50K/70K across all cabins
- Fiji Airways (no first class) and Qantas from North America to Australia, o/w for 55k in Business or 70K in First Class.
- American Airlines from North America to Europe, o/w for 22.5K/57.5K across Econ and Business.
