Alaska Airlines has brought back their best bonus for buying Mileage Plan miles! Right now you will get a 50% bonus when you buy 40,000 or more miles.
At 50% you’ll definitely want to consider buying the miles as you are
buying Mileage Plan Miles under U.S. 2 cents a piece. Please note that us Canadians have to pay GST/HST on the amount since Points.com, who processes the transaction is a Canadian company.
Seeing that you can redeem miles for premium class flights on British
Airways, Cathay Pacific, Hainan, Korean Air and more, there are lots of
options for you to use these miles. Remember it only takes 70,000
Mileage Plan miles to fly Cathay Pacific First Class from North America
to Asia and that flight alone will cost a lot more than US$1,419.00!
Here is one example of a redemption you could use this bonus offer
on. Flying Japan Airlines and Korean Air business class from Vancouver
Visit Japan in April for a week – 112,500 miles round trip for
business class + $102.70 in fees/taxes. To purchase 120,000 miles (the
closest amount at 50% to get these flights) would cost you just over
US$2,300, add in the fees and you are looking at ~$2,400 To pay cash for
the same flights you would be looking at over $4,000.
Remember Alaska has set in place a maximum amount of miles you can
buy in a year if you don’t hold MVP status. Non-Elite members can only
buy 150,000 miles per year now. MVP, MVP Gold, and MVP Gold 75K member
are not subjected to this limitation. Seeing that Alaska has never
offered more than a 50% bonus this is definitely the time to buy if you
were targeted to get that amount.
