I’m normally a fan of signing up for loyalty programs just in case. But today an Alaska Mileage Plan offer came across my mailbox that negates that theory.
This offer does not appear to be targeted. It allows one to earn 5,000 Alaska Mileage Plan miles for a new account sign up before April 30, 2017. The bonus miles require only one qualifying flight before September 30, 2017.
New members can sign up via this link.
The qualifying flight can be taken on Alaska or Virgin America. Codeshare flights are not eligible (either on Alaska or Virgin America metal or with their flight numbers on other carriers). Individuals may only receive the bonus once, even if they hold multiple Alaska Mileage Plan accounts.
