Alaska has a little sugar for its email subscribers: a unique discount code for 10% off travel between January 8 and February 13, 2020.

This deal is only available for current email subscribers, and flights must be purchased by October 21, 2019, to qualify for the discount.

Here’s the catch: Your discount code is unique to you, and can only be used once for a single purchase, although you can book up to seven travelers on one reservation (and the purchaser does not have to be among the travelers). All seven passengers must travel together and be booked and ticketed at the same time, in the same reservation and at the same fare.

The 10% discount applies to all base fare levels for routes systemwide, and must be applied directly to a purchase made through AlaskaAir.com. The discount is not available on Mileage Plan Award Reservations, Alaska Airlines Vacation packages, tour or contract fares, most discounted first class fares and many privately filed fares.

Travel to/from Hawaii, Mexico, or Costa Rica is valid Mondays through Thursdays. All other travel is valid Mondays through Thursdays and Saturdays. Finally, the discount is only available on flights operated by Alaska Airlines, Horizon Air, PenAir, and SkyWest.
