November 19 Update: Redeem Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan miles on Icelandair, new Air Canada routes, bonuses galore!

Once again lots of news and bonuses to bring your way!

News, Tips & Tricks
As we mentioned earlier this fall, the partnership between Alaska Airlines and Icelandair returned. It started off with only being able to earn miles on each others flights along with reciprocal elite benefits but now you can once again redeem Mileage Plan miles for Icelandair flights. Seeing that Icelandair serves a decent amount of cities in Canada and that we have a Mileage Plan co-branded credit card this is good news. The more ways you get to use your miles the better.  Happy redeeming for those flights to Iceland and/or Europe!!  And it doesn’t take a lot of miles to redeem. 22,500 miles is all that’s needed for a one way economy class ticket (low season) between Canada and Iceland. Seeing that the Alaska Airlines World Elite MasterCard has a 25,000 mile sign up bonus you can achieve that flight for only the $75 annual fee and whatever taxes/fees are charged on the award ticket.  (Source View from the Wing)
