Alaska Mileage Plan’s latest promotion “kick back with bonus miles” comes with 40% bonus on purchased miles. The promotion is applicable on all transactions completed between 6:00 AM PST May 21, 2018 and 11:59 PM PST July 3, 2018.
Alaska 40% Bonus
Alaska 40% bonus kicks in when buying a minimum of 50K miles (70K with bonus), or maximizing the value by buying 60K (84K with bonus) for $1773 USD. A value of 2.11 cpm. In the previous editions of this promotion, the 40% bonus was available with a minimum purchase of 20K miles. Current promotion requires you purchase a much higher amount to achieve the 40% bonus. Here are the tiers on the current promotion;
- 1,000 – 9,000 miles = No bonus
- 10,000 – 19,000 miles = 20% bonus
- 20,000 – 49,000 miles = 35% bonus
- 50,000+ 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.
