For this week’s Thursday Giveaway, we’re offering a chance to win 30,000 Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan miles, in honor of the 40% buy miles bonus promotion.
Alaska Airlines’ Mileage Plan is one of TPG’s favorite frequent flyer programs. He pegs the value at 2.0 cents per mile — higher than any other airline program, thanks to fantastic partner redemption opportunities.
Although Alaska Airlines is not part of a global airline alliance, it has partnerships with quite a few amazing partners, including Air France/KLM, American, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Delta, Emirates, Hainan Airlines and Qantas. Add in a good award chart on top of that, and it’s easy to see the value.
TPG Contributor Nick Ewen recently highlighted some great redemptions that you can get with Alaska miles, so be sure to take a look at that to get an idea of what you can do with the miles.
If you’d like to top off your Alaska account, you can apply for the Alaska Airlines Visa Signature Credit Card, which currently comes with a 25,000-mile bonus just for being approved, as well as other benefits such as an annual companion ticket.
Alaska Airlines is also a Starwood Preferred Guest transfer partner, so you can transfer Starpoints over at a 1:1 ratio, with a 5,000 mile bonus if you transfer 20,000 points. If you need to boost your SPG balance, you can consider applying for the fantastic Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card, which is offering a great 30,000-point bonus for spending $3,000 in the first three months.
You must enter the giveaway below no later than 11:59pm EST on Monday, August 31, 2015.
