Alaska Mileage Plan is getting ‘A flying start to 2018‘, its latest edition of 40% bonus on purchased miles. The promotion is available until 11:59 PM PST February 7, 2018 to be eligible for bonus miles.
Alaska 40% Bonus
Alaska 40% bonus kicks in when buying a minimum of 20K miles (28K with bonus) at $591.25 USD, 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 bonus was tiered and would require a minimum purchase of 40K miles for the 40% bonus. However Alaska has made it better and now any purchase over 20K gets a 40% bonus with a value of 2.11 CPM.
Purchasing a minimum of 20K with the bonus should be the way to go if you are looking to top-up your accounts towards a specific award.
- 1,000 – 19,000 miles = No bonus
- 20,000+ 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.
