Alaska Airlines has launched a pretty lucrative promo for flyers from one of its West Coast hubs in San Diego. When you register and fly four qualifying non-stops between San Diego and any of 13 cities from now through November 20, 2013, you will get a discount code valid for a free roundtrip from San Diego – you will just be responsible for the taxes, starting at $19 depending on the destination.

The 13 promo destinations are:

  • Boise
  • Boston
  • Fresno
  • Honolulu
  • Kahului (Maui)
  • Lihue (Kauai)
  • Los Cabos
  • Monterey
  • Orlando
  • Portland
  • Puerto Vallarta
  • Santa Rosa
  • Seattle

Your account must be registered in California, and you must register for this promo prior to your first flight. Then to qualify, your roundtrips must be paid and the mileage credited to your Alaska MileagePlan account. The airline will email you with a discount code on or around December 20, 2013. The flights between San Diego and qualifying destinations must be non-stop.

You’ll then have to redeem it by January 31, 2014, for travel valid January 7, 2014, through November 15, 2014, between San Diego and any Alaska Airlines destination they fly to from there. Here are the rest of the terms and conditions:

Discount Code Terms & Conditions:
Discount Code is valid for one-way or round-trip travel between San Diego and any Alaska Airlines city served from San Diego. Passenger is responsible for all applicable taxes, fees, and surcharges, including checked baggage fees. Discount Code must be ticketed by January 31, 2014. No changes are allowed once ticket is issued. Travel is valid from January 7, 2014, through November 15, 2014. W class of service must be available. Seats are limited and may not be available on every flight. Discount Codes are non-transferable. The recipient of the Discount Code must be the traveler. Not eligible for Mileage Plan™ or other frequent flyer program miles. Discount Code cannot be applied to tickets that have already been purchased and issued. Valid only on flights operated by Alaska Airlines, and flights operated on behalf of Alaska Airlines by Horizon Air, Sky West and PenAir.

Although there are a few restrictions, if you’re a San Diego- or SoCal-based flyer who has easy access to the San Diego airport, this could be a pretty lucrative promo for you that would amount to fly two, get one free, and you could do your roundtrips between quick destinations like Fresno or Santa Rosa and then use your free ticket for a longer flight like those to Hawaii or Boston.
