In the past 12 months, we've seen Alaska Airlines offer up a variety of mileage sales and on at least two occasions it has offered the very best deals we have ever seen that airline offer. Now the airline is back with a sale that runs through the middle of May and it's a sale that sees Mileage Plan members being targeted for mystery bonuses.
Ok, in the grand scheme of things this isn't exactly a super-generous promotion and it's certainly not going to get people rushing to book new trips, but if you're going to be flying with Alaska Airlines & American Airlines between May and December you may as well pick up the easy miles that are on offer.
In November last year, American Airlines and Alaska Airlines announced that they would be taking their relationship to the next level by offering each other's elite flyers reciprocal upgrades. This goes considerably beyond the benefits that are being afforded to flyers as a result of Alaska Airlines joining the oneworld alliance and now we finally have details of how these upgrades will work.
Alaska Airlines is back with a new mileage sale but unusually for the airline, this sale will be over within the week. This latest sale sees the airline go back to offering what was, pre-pandemic, its best-ever deal - a 50% bonus - and with the vaccine rollout now gathering momentum, this is likely to be the best deal we see going forward.
Alaska Airlines has launched a new limited-time promotion that it's targeting at the residents of California as well as a sale that features California. The promotion is offering new Mileage Plan members a discount on a flight to anywhere that Alaska Airlines flys within California for just the cost of the flight's taxes and fees while the sale is offering discounts on travel to/from the Golden State.
Alaska Airlines has launched a new opportunity for flyers holding elite status with either Delta, Southwest, or United Airlines to add "no strings attached" Alaska Mileage Plan elite status to their portfolio.

Last year we saw Alaska Airlines breaking with past conventions and running a variety of mileage sales that offered better bonuses than we had ever seen before. In the middle of January, and for its first sale of 2021, Alaska Airlines returned with another mileage sale that offered one of the best bonuses we've ever seen. That sale will end in 2 day's time.
While we occasionally see a hotel loyalty program offer bonus points to new members (Marriott Bonvoy leads the way with this) it's an unusual thing for an airline's loyalty program to do, but that's exactly what Alaska's Mileage Plan program is offering right now.
To earn top-tier status with Alaska Airlines a flyer is currently required to credit just 75,000 elite qualifying miles to their account. From 2022 that will no longer be the case as, in a move that was reasonably easy to predict, Alaska Airlines has just told members that it will be creating a new elite tier level next year.
