Alaska Airlines currently has a fall award flight sale where you can book one-way award tickets for as little as 7,500 miles plus taxes.

The Alaska Airlines Fall Sale runs now through October 31, 2013.

The Alaska Airlines Fall Sale runs now through October 31, 2013.

Book travel from now through October 31. 2013, for a number of destinations both domestically and internationally, such as to San Francisco, Los Angeles and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. While the US locations are mainly on the West coast thanks to Alaska’s route map, Boise, Idaho and Las Vegas are also included in the list. These likely won’t give you the maximum value for Alaska miles (I like to use them for premium awards on partners like Cathay Pacific and Emirates), but they can be a decent deal- especially for last minute travel when ticket prices are high.

Destinations in the Alaska Airlines sale include San Francisco and Seattle.

Some of the best deals include:

  • Portland to San Francisco one-way in economy for 7,500 miles plus $2.50 in taxes, rather than the usual price of around 12,500 miles. Currently, the same flight booked through Orbitz and not using miles is $181.90.
  • Seattle to Los Angeles one-way in economy for 10,000 miles plus $2.50 in taxes, rather than the usual price of around 12,500 miles. Currently, the same flight booked through Orbitz and not using miles is $159.90.
  • San Diego to Los Cabos one-way in economy for 12,500 miles plus $3 in taxes, rather than the usual price of around 17,500 miles. Currently, the same flight booked through Orbitz and not using miles is $136.74.
  • Boise to Las Vegas one-way in economy for 10,000 miles plus $5 in taxes, rather than the usual price of around 12,500 miles. Currently, the same flight booked through Orbitz and not using miles is $124.80.

Portland to San Francisco one-way costs $181.90 booking with Orbitz.

As always, award travel is subject to availability and is valid for travel through October 31, 2013, currently there seems to be good availability, however, so there is still time to get a good deal.  Also, the taxes are generally very low, but can reach up to $180 for the Mexico itineraries.

Travelers leaving from San Diego can still take advantage of Alaska Airlines’ previous lucrative promo. When you register and fly four qualifying non-stop flights 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. 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. For full details on that offer, click here.

Along with regular sales, where Alaska really shines is in the various airline partners it has. Though Alaska isn’t part of any alliance – or because of it – it is partners with both American and Delta, as well as Aeromexico, Air France/KLM, Air Pacific, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Emirates, Korean Air, LAN and Qantas.

    Since many of Alaska’s flights are quite short, it can also be a good idea to use Avios to book them. You do have to call in to British Airways though as their website doesn’t display Alaska Airlines award space.

    I have a question about this. Sorry for my ineptitude, but if you can call in to book Alaska airlines can I call in to BA for flying other partners that aren’t showing in the search ?
    For example, when I look for TPAC flights, I see two options but I know there’s more.

  • thepointsguy

    Yes you can call in for partner availability that isn’t showing online

  • thepointsguy

    Good tip!

  • Corey

    Are TPAC flights always going to have high fuel surcharges with avios no matter what? =[

  • Allen

    I just booked a flight for me and my wife, PSP -SMF, only 4500 BA Adios points each way.(great deal) Otherwise I find Adios points to be rather useless. However, I consider Alaska miles to be one of the best programs out there. I used 105K Alaska Miles for a LAX -SYD trip on Delta.

    Can I also call Delta to book with miles for cheaper on the same flights? Typically directly through Delta it is a 25,000 roundtrip minimum
