Alaska Airlines has been selling miles with a bonus of up to 50% since the end of August and this deal has now nearly run its course. If you were fortunate enough to be targeted for the 50% bonus you have until 11:59pm ET on 5 October 2017 to buy Alaska miles with that bonus.
Shopping portals can be a very good way of boosting your rewards balances while you go about your regular shopping. If you're sensible and disciplined (i.e you don't shop just because you're earning miles) you can keep the miles rolling in without spending any more than you would have done if the miles hadn't been on offer.
If you have an Alaska Mileage Plan account you may have been targeted for a healthy 50% bonus on any miles you purchase before 5 October. Generally I’m pretty negative about buying miles from airlines but, when it comes to Alaska Miles, I’m a little more positive.

Just a quick reminder that Alaska Airlines' latest “buy points with a bonus” offer ends today (29 September) so, if you were fortunate enough to be targeted for the 50% bonus offer, you only have a few hours left to make the most of the promotion. European readers may also benefit from my post on why UK & European travelers should have an Alaska Mileage Plan account.
Alaska Airlines is an airline that operates entirely within the confines of North America, Mexico and Central America so it probably sounds a bit strange for me to say that travelers based in Europe and the UK should have an account with Alaska's loyalty program. It may sound strange but I have a very good reason for suggesting this...as I'm about to show.
It's always nice to see a little bit of variation to the usually mundane "buy points with a bonus" offers that come out every month and Alaska is doing its bit to help. Alaska Airlines is offering a mystery bonus to anyone who buys Mileage Plan miles through 29 September 2016.
